Hi Everyone. I stumbled across this when watching videos of MDD on youtube. I thought it was interesting that it was actually mentioned in the news. Plus it's really cool to see the people who were brave enough to talk about their MDD on TV and who gave many like us an opportunity to open up about our MDD. Special thanks to Cordelia Rose for creating this awesome site! :). And big thanks to psychologist Eli Somer for researching this and making it known to the scientific and general…

The Working memory and default brain networks

When most of us fall asleep, the brain network that involves attention to the outside world (the working memory network consisting primarily of the lateral frontal and parietal cortices) deactivates and our default brain network (medial prefrontal and posterior cingulate cortices) takes over. The discovery of the default brain network is important, as it involves various aspects of our self, such as our self-representations, dreams, imagination, current concerns, autobiographical memory and… Continue

stopping maladaptive aydreaming

I have been trying to give up on maladaptive daydreaming and something which I noticed was whenever something started going wrong I instalty started to daydream so what I am trying to do is when I have a problem I try to stay in reality and so far it is helping.

For about aweek I have been listening to affirmation saying  "I dont maladptive daydream anymore"  which I recorded and I listen to it every night during my sleep  so it could be that.If anyone wants me create some subliminal…

Frustrated

Floating in that in between phase where I'm not fully committed to a DD scenario. I hate not having a scenario to invest my time & mental energy in. I've got several good stand-buys to choose from but I'm not feeling emotionally linked with them yet. I feel like I'm alone & am unsure how to rectify the matter.

GONE.

Gone.



'What do you think? Will this do?'

'What? Yeah its pretty good, you are actually overdoing it at this point.'

'I need it, the extra points, what about you, are you done with yours?'

'Ah well nope.'

'Hey you told me you were going to complete it last night.'

'What can I say? I was in the mood of something else apart from work last night.'

'Does it have to do with K again? Aww..you still think about her. How cute.'

'Haha..does…

Mindfulness?

Does anyone find that practicing mindfulness helps to reduce their MD?

Somehow, beating all my expectations, I've managed to practice mindfulness everyday so far this year. 15 days and going strong! Normally my MD/procrastination kicks in, as it does with everything, and I just don't get around to doing it.

I find that sitting still and trying to be mindful is really hard. It's just so difficult to still my mind and just be. I use a couple of apps on my phone. My mind is so…

I don't know If I want to stop

When I was younger, I would always tell myself that if I didn't like something, I could just leave. Like, if someone was bothering me, or I was bored in class I could just space out and be somewhere else for a while. It's been so long, and my daydreams have gotten so complex. There is a whole world in my my mind, and I really love it there. But, it scares me too. I spend hours just staring at the ceiling daydreaming. And when I'm not dreaming, I'm just waiting for a free minute so I can return.… Continue

First person who i've told.

I'm a blab. I like to tell people about their christmas presents before they open them. I like talking about the interesting things, sometimes their relevant sometimes  their secret. But i have a need to express myself, i hate bottling myself up like this. 

This has been so hidden from view even i could't see i had a secret. My sister has caught me many times talking to myself, smiling into the distance laughing at something my characters do or say. She knows i'm a little crazy, i can…

First entry - Fools gold

I am doing this because i feel like it will be good for me. I know i got MD through a form of protection but now i'm too bubble wrapped by it and it's suffocating. It's why i've been depressed and anxious and have fear of social events. What i do is i imagine my idealised self- i imagine people complimenting me and how great my work is- i picture fun evenings with friends i don't have (even though i do, their all just far away) I picture myself with no worry and full of happiness. I used to…

New year, new changes

Hello!

I just signed up to Wild Minds Network. But I've had MD for oooh, 23 years. Scary. And scary that I'm getting older... Not that I knew that it was MD for most of that time. I just thought that there was something wrong with me. Mostly that I was lazy and useless, as I could never get out of bed and get anything done because I was so distracted by my daydreams. 

So it's the start of 2017. I've never like New Year's Eve (it's sort of like compulsory fun and I've…

Awesome title

So, less than a week to go before 2016 kicks out. According to the internet, this has been the worst year in history. According to my country's weather forecasts, it's been the year with the hottest summer ever (they say that every year). According to my own experience, neither of those.

But experience is subjective. Different people exposed to the same event almost always internalize it in different ways. We are limited to our own point of view when it comes to first-hand experiences,…

You worry too much. (:

One day I will go hollow,

Don't worry, you don't have to see my face again.

One day I will lose this sight of who I am,

Don't worry, you don't have to hear my voice again,

One day I will not care anymore,

Don't worry, you don't have to hold my hands again,

One day I will fall down,

Don't worry you don't have to pick me back up again,

One day I will not dream anymore,

Don't worry you don't have remind me of anything again,

'Cuz I don't…

My Therapy (A Life of Writing)

Its been forever since I've posted her, but I must say that I've finally found relief. I found it through writing.

Now when I say this I really mean it. Everyday I set two hours aside for me to write whatever it is that comes to mind (I prefer 7pm-9pm). And now I'm actually developing two short stories and a novel. Heck, I've even taken writing class to perfect my craft—fiction writing has become my new study.

So perhaps, for some of us, a great relief from the vastness of MD…

This is linked with my other posts about affirmations to stop daydremaing

So when you are saying the affirmation people suggest to believe that it is already working and happening however you always don't feel like that, for exmaple  when you're trying to believe everything is okay when it really isn't,

.The researchers suggest that, positive praise and affirmations, such as “I am a lovable person” was incongruent with the mindset of those with low self-esteem... this led to feelings of conflict and just feeling bad... which then led to more negative…

Back from College and I Finally get the MD

Hello! 

So, my last blog post was about how well I was doing. That's still happening. I am doing well- but I've realized why I developed MD in the first place. 

I've avoided going home for a really long time because it's a major trigger. My family complains constantly, but there's also nothing to do. These people do nothing all day, watch Netflix, and talk about how they're misunderstood. When I lived here, I had nothing to ether. Not only was I completely trapped here,…

Therapy Time

Started up again with a new therapist. Just finished first session and didn't bring up daydreaming. Why is it so hard to admit this?

Who is this?

Sooo finally I get myself to tell a bit more about this Black Unicorn, creeping around here more often recently.

Well I'm 27, from switzerland and right now I'm studying german philology and cultural anthropology (no you're not stupid if you don't know what that means, nobody does :P )

I like music, mostly somewhere between Metal, Gothic related stuff or medieval tunes. Which is also a huge trigger for my MDD, even the most boring popsong has potential to become a…

First Blog Post

I’m unsure what to write exactly, but I feel like I should finally use this site to share my experience. After all, I joined in 2014 and haven’t posted anything.

My name is Leonie, but I would prefer it if you could just call me Leo since that’s my nickname. I’m a 19-year-old girl from Germany and currently studying Anglistics. In my free time I read a lot, currently mostly for university. I love watching cartoons, TV-shows and sometimes anime, feel free to message me if you have any…
