I've found that I have trouble falling asleep because of MD.

I have to either be very tired, or force myself to stop (which takes a lot of willpower for me) in order to fall asleep, and I often find myself daydreaming again without consciously allowing it.

It's very frustrating, especially when I have to get up early, or fix my sleep pattern. (I have trouble falling asleep, even without MD'ing!)

Do you guys have any methods to keep this from happening?

Or, have you ever had a daydream (while falling asleep) turn into a dream?

(I'd like to hear about it - It's never happened to me...yet!)

I had horrible Insomnia for many years, and I felt horribly sick because of it.  I would be awake all night, every night, and the daydreams only made it worse.  I tried everything to stop, but I felt like I was going out of my mind from lack of sleep.  I even hallucinated and dreamed while awake from lack of sleep.  Finally, I gave in and started taking sleep medicine.  It's the only thing that helped.  Now, I sleep well and feel much better.  Good luck.  

Thanks for the quick reply. ^^

As of now, my sleep quality is waaay better than it use to be. (Compared to last years strain of horrible sleep)

Along with feeling dizzy, sickly, & anxious/faint, I've also hallucinated from sleep deprivation before (I saw the floral pattern on curtains move, & saw orb/ lights/shadows.) It was a strange and horrible experience. 

Actually last night I experienced exactly what you asked in the last sentence!

I was like "No! I have to stop!" I fell asleep and dreamed of the boy I'm actually daydreaming!
It's like I can't get rid of it even when I sleep! :/

I have the opposite problem. When I was younger, I would always daydream right before bed. I usually stayed up much later than intended doing this, and had trouble falling asleep. But over the years it's slowly morphed away from that. It turned into daydreaming at night putting me asleep, like a lullaby. Now, I can't go to sleep unless I daydream. If I don't daydream, I can't fall asleep unless I'm truly exhausted. It's quite irritating, and means I'll never be able to truly stop daydreaming.

I wish I could help you out with this problem. Maybe try some of the usual tricks to help with falling asleep? Like exercising, read a book in bed, have sleepytime tea, etc.

I found that my best method of falling asleep is to close my eyes & listen to background noise - like, the A/C running, or a fan in another room, etc. I feel it's working pretty well! 

I can't fall asleep unless I DD but I've learned over the years that I have to change the pattern of the DD.  If I want to fall asleep, I can't have the characters in my DD become overly emotional - either angry or confrontational or even too loving - because those emotions will keep me awake.  So I channel the DD into something rather boring or soothing and then I can gently fall asleep.

I take St Johns Wort as a sleeping aid so that my mind will quieter enough to let me sleep.

I pretend to be a character who's really ill or really depressed who just wants to melt into the pillows.  When you pretend to be someone who can barely lift a hand, it's not too hard to fall asleep, so long as you don't get too caught up in the overall plot.  

OR I get involved in some big real-life decision making, like changing jobs and moving, and that's absolutely exhausting and I want to sleep so I can escape it all.  

I don't have trouble sleeping-I just lie in bed and daydream, and then fall asleep.
