Where wild minds come to rest
I used to love to maladaptive daydream between ages 12 to 29. It always made me feel happy or exhilarated. To be frank,
I still day dream a little bit today. Now that I am in my 30's, this is starting to give me a fright, for a few reasons. Day dreaming excessively has robbed me of my life. It deceived my mind to believe in 'nonsense' that are against real facts.
Since I was a teenager, I actually expected to see wonderful things in my adulthood, like dating, traveling,…

I am better then I was. I changed my diet. Gave up sugar and high carb foods. Added in good fats, coconut oil, olive oil, butter. My mind works better now. Less anxiety and depression. I am better able to stop the dreams.
One of the causes of my daydreaming is idealism. A supportive family and environment made it to possible to grow sheltered form the harsh realities of life . Hollywood movies are full of stories , with happy endings where events happen for a reason leading to a specific positive outcome. In real life , it is rarely the case.
Daydreaming can lead to inaction, since action can potentially disturb our fantasy . Whereas Inaction leave us with so many opportunities. To an…Continue
I love English. I'm doing it for my degree and I could not be happier with it, however, I recently discovered that my teacher lives in the same apartment complex as me... Not that bad, I can live with that, the problem comes when I'm day dreaming and he sees me murmuring to myself and writhing my fingers.
A bit of background, my teacher and I have gotten along amazingly, we've really hit it off and he's one of the best teachers I've ever had. After he saw me murmuring and writhing my…Continue

Hi! My name's Lou, I'm a female-to-male transgender teen with MD.
I have had those fleeting, one-off fantasies for most of my life, but recently I developed a plot fantasy that I'm struggling to manage. I use it to cope with my lack of identity, so I can 'jump into' all my characters. We are all very separate people, we just share a body and memories. There's of us:
-Silas- a 44 year old, strong but greying male
I started doing MDD as a kid, but totally regret it today. I am all grown up now, but I feel so vulnerable towards life itself.
I lived a majority of my life in a dream state than ever emotionally and interactively responding to realistic external events around me. I always had trouble paying attention to people, so I was often socially isolated. I believed that I could take concrete subjects of 'people and things' into my dream world, and hope I can make my desires come true…

Last year my teacher said that AP Comparative Government was basically a class where we learned about the different governments of the world and how they are structured. I chose to take it because I though it would help me create more accurate and logical governments in my fantasy world, Ellse.
However, as I discovered, it wasn't simply that. My new AP Comparative teacher, who is extremely passionate and tough, expects us to know already about current events all…Continue
Hello! I'm a teen, and I've had an "active imagination" for as long as I can remember. As an introvert, I've never had any problem entertaining myself--when I get bored, I just create appealing scenarios in my head, zone out, and daydream about them over and over again. Through the years, though, this daydreaming has grown from harmless to somewhat concerning. My daydreaming has become less controllable, and it has become harder and harder to turn it off and focus on the real world. I've…Continue
I'm back for a little while. I stopped logging in because day dreaming wasn't interfering with my life. However, I noticed that the past few weeks it's been causing issues with procrastination, and disrupting a project I'm working on. I begin working on the project again yesterday, which is writing a series of spiritual poems. If I continue working on them then I might or might not log in. I have to finish them by October 22.

I have daydreaming for almost 15 years ,i guess what started out a coping mechanism ended up being very addictive,
it was because it allowed to improve ( in fantasy) my real circumstances without taking any action. i could go anywhere, be anything, do anything.. as long as my imagination allowed, an imagination inspired by reality. movies, books,..., basically i could solve all the world problems, incorporating real world characters ,
The closer my characters acted like in…Continue

I feel as if my dream world is remotely the opposite from the real world. Shouldn't our heads tell us the truth? I mean sometimes our dreams do tell us what future events awaits us, whether your awake or asleep. You'll be surprised in the future that I has finally come true. But, usually, you foresee these upcoming events by accident, not that you really wanted to know. People call it foresight or prevision.
However, there are other dreams that are made up fantasies, such…
Man oh man. I spent the last several weeks binging one of my favorite shows and it got me daydreaming so deep. I think about every spare minute of the day I turn my brain into my brain. It's the best story and the best show and so for about 151 episodes I feel completely at home and emotionally entrenched, but now it's over and I'm trying to tell myself to move on but I just can't just yet.
It's just so weird and dumb that I can build a family out of t.v. show and feel loved…Continue

just another sunrise without sleep
golden rays hit my cold face
doesn't make a difference
i am unhappy
comes back every now and then
makes me laugh and smile
but sadness lives inside me
