Where wild minds come to rest

Journey to a Life Free of Maladaptive Daydreaming

Day 1 - I've been Maladaptive Daydreaming for over four years now, and I know that it's time to stop. I've recently been able to improve my life, but am facing some obstacles right now and want to clear my mind and focus on improvement. Today I spent a huge amount of time in depression and daydreaming, trying to escape my current circumstances and overlooking all the blessings in my life. I truly believe that all our lives have so much value, value beyond our imagination, and that we should try our hardest to recognize that value. So right now, I will take small steps, starting off by forgiving myself for all the mistakes I have made, and calmly take on whatever I need to do.

Day 34 - My levels of MD have definitely been fluctuating throughout the day, but having daily reflection here on wildminds has really been helping. The reflection has helped me better identify when I start to MD, and in turn, effectively step back from such episodes.
Day 40 - I notice I get intense MD episodes after I go on jogs, when in the shower, and when getting ready. I am going to try to restrict the amount of time I spend daydreaming by going through mental affirmations during those times.
Day 42 - I really want to change my life. I want to learn, experience, and do things. I want to live in reality.
Day 49 - Recently I've been journaling less frequently here, and want to make it a habit to get back on track. Ever since I started journaling a few weeks ago, I did notice some visible reductions in the frequency of my daydreams. However, I did notice a slight increase during the last week and a half. I'll keep a steady watch and focus on the MD-free life I wish to live.
