Hi, everyone! I am new to this website and I thank you for sharing your space with me.

In reading many of your posts, I relate and feel so grateful to have found an environment of care and understanding. I've been grappling with MD since I was 12 without really understanding it or putting a term to it until recently. 

The hardest part of MD for me is feeling like I am going through it alone, especially when I'm not able to articulate my symptoms and experiences in a way that makes sense to my 'neurotypical' family and friends. Thus, I am seeking to get to know friends around my age on this platform safely. I believe in full inclusivity in my life, so I don't mean to shut down anyone who is older and probably carries immense wisdom to share about MD, I am just seeking to find someone in my own stage of life to relate with. I am 21, so anyone 18-28 would be lovely. I'd prefer to communicate through email or snapchat. 

Thank you so much for your time and I wish you all a wonderful day.

Best,

Shelby (she/her)

Hey all! I think that's a good idea, but email is perhaps a bit complicated? Do you have a Discord account? Btw there is also a very active MD/ID channel there.

I'm wondering if the three of us can have an email chain and create a support group? Let me know your comfortability and thoughts!

Hey! Sorry for not being on here for so long, I tried doing stuff that doesnt involve being on the internet too much. Could you maybe resend the link? It expired sadly

I'm older than that, I'm just popping in to remind you that you can create groups on this website just for people with the same interest, for example, age.

Feel free to do it and if you need help I'll help... without taking part in it of course!

Anyone can connect with me on instagram , my id is shash.09

Hello there. I'm Kiruba. 21 years old, gonna turn 22 in June 16th. I found this network when I was searching about my condition a couple of months back, when it got worse during the lockdown. I just saw your post and realized we're in the same stages in life. I'm no expert in stopping it and helping to keep it in check. But I'd love to know your experiences and your paracosm (the world you've created via MD) as well as share my own. I'm also looking for more people to talk to about this, who've experienced it. 

Hi, I'm Bee and I'm 21. Since as far as I can remember I've always daydreamed a lot and all the time. I have been trying for a long time to put a word on this behaviour of spending my time daydreaming. A few months ago, I discovered the term maladaptive daydreaming. I was so happy to see that I was not the only one having this behaviour, it was a relief. For as long as I can remember, I've always had this feeling of not being normal and alone, and there were enough people who were enjoying to remind me of it. At first I thought that it wasn't that big of a deal, but I was so wrong. I didn't see how my dreams were impacting my life. Being very shy and always feeling that I wasn't normal, I never talked about it with anyone, I was scared of being misunderstood. I would love to talk to you about maladaptive daydreams and I'm pretty excited to hear about your paracosm.
