Where wild minds come to rest
I experience MDD for many years just like everyone else here. I've been working with a psychiatrist and psychotherapist for almost a year. I see some improvement. I have an idea and hopefully more people will join my thoughts. I would like to organize biweekly/monthly in person meetings. They would be like group sessions. I believe we can help each other. I personally live in Washington DC area. Please let me know your any thoughts or/and ideas. Looking forward to hear…Continue
Hi all... I have started to write my MD story into a novel, based on the suggestion of one of our WMN friends. The first chapter is up here.
Would like to hear from y'all on it.
The earliest signs of mdd I remember was in my earliest memories. For quite a while, I had believed that I just had imaginary friends, who'd I play with for hours at a time. But now, I believe I recognize signs it wasn't simply an imaginary friend.
I was extremely close to my friend, and insisted it was real, because it felt like it did. I was so determined that I was tested for schizophrenia. However, I knew it wasn't real. I'd spend time confused why something I knew wasn't real…Continue
I hate celebrating holidays with people. I mostly hate celebrating it with my family, but the anxiety comes with friends too. I think I might try to survive tomorrow by pretending I'm someone else. I'm hoping wearing a mask over my mind might help. Fingers crossed.
I wander up the village’s hill,
Autumn day is falling.
A rising breeze, i feel it’s chill,
Silent nightfall’s calling.
When shadows through the forest creep,
Night Owl’s crying lonely.
I watch the trees for long asleep,
Thoughts are talking only.
As vision’s flying far away,
Pictures seem so close,
Of worlds I wish to see one day.
Where my wind blows, who knows?…Continue
As some of you could clearly tell by my ramblings in chat these last two weeks, I've been having an increasingly hard time in keeping my sanity in check. Numerous aspects that had persisted for eras are coming into harder and harder friction against reality, whether I like it or not. Streams of thought that I had somewhat managed to chain into the back of my head for years are gaining unprecedented power.
My mind is fragmented, falling to pieces, and each of those pieces is fighting…Continue
Hi guys, these days it's been hard. I don't know, I've been daydreaming a lot instead of studying, I've been wasting a lot of time. I resist it but I get really tired and sleep in the afternoon only to waste time on the internet in the evening, I go to bed late, I planned to watch 2 movies every weekend but that's not happening, somehow. My entire method of scheduling my day has fallen apart. I get really cranky and, just when I'm about to lash out or am in the process of doing so, an inner…Continue
have not generated any new input for a long time but I can to realize that my condition could have been a form of self-medication to help me deal with my sleep apea. In my case, I suffered from depression beginning from the third grades, that is also when I can remember the day dreaming. In my case day dreaming was about creating characters, stories and above all relationships that made me happy. Happy enough to create serration, I am sure this was a method of self coping that my body…Continue
The young woman woke up, her eyes opening up to a scenery quite different from the one she was in mere seconds before.
"Are you all right?" asked another female voice. She looked up. The two had never seen each other before, but it was obvious that this one had been there for much longer. "Not a nice trip, was it?"
The newcomer sat down, still trying to understand what was happening. "Who... Who are you? Where are we?"
"My name is Ima. I don't really know what this place is, but…

Hello. This is Cordellia, site founder and admin. I spoke to a woman who is a TV producer in NYC, and she's looking to help spread the word about Maladaptive Daydreaming so that the world will know more and be more accepting, which is greatly needed. She is seeking one or two people to be interviewed. They can be anonymous if desired. It will not be live, and she's happy to talk with them in advance if that helps. I've pasted her message with contact info below.
"I am a…Continue

Hi. So I'm the ZO part of this account. My buddy NE has already posted her tragic backstory (Kitty, I'm gonna talk to you later 'bout that), so I figured I might give mine. Not that I think anyone will care, but ya never know.
BTW I will probably refer to myself as Pixie instead or ZO, so...
Anyway. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
Sorry, got side tracked. In about seventh grade, I finally got around to reading Harry Potter. I know, what took me so long? I…Continue
(This is the first in a series of posts attempting to trace my life through my daydreaming. Sadly, the brief bit in the title probably won't stay true as we go on, but I couldn't resist. I use the term dreaming specifically in relation to maladaptive daydreaming--it's just easier for me to type and is how I've always related to my fantasies before I realized there was an actual term for it.)
What can I pinpoint as my earliest…Continue

Making a career out of daydreaming, okay the word career is definitly not real, atleast not yet, but I got the proof back from my first novel, a YA story that was built out of daydreaming. I'm so very stoked and I hope it's just one of many. It makes writing so easy, my mind is able to build and enjoy and love the stories. I have bad days, I'm not going to say I don't, but I get so much joy out of daydreaming and putting them on paper. It's the best way to make the stories real. Okay,…Continue
Am I the youngest on here? I am thirteen years old.
Greeting to all wild Minds:
Are there techniques that you use to successfully keep your daydreaming under control?
