3rd November 2020 - A new start

Hello daydreamers!

Wildminds is back.

When I heard Cordellia was about to close it, I felt so sorry that I reached out for her and we agreed on transferring the ownership. It took a while to settle everything but now we are here.

About me: my name is Valeria, I'm 35 and I'm a counselor. I was a maladaptive daydreamer. This is the first place where I found answers to what I was experiencing for all my life. 

I'm Italian and at that time (2015-2016) I could not find any search result in Italian about compulsive fantasy on Google. I decided to create the first Italian website and Facebook group for Italian people (now with more of 1000 members). I have also created a non-profit association to give help and talk to people and psychologists about maladaptive daydreaming (

I'm glad to see the community around the globe growing and sharing stories.

This is an amazing virtual place to start to feel better and take back your life. To me, it was the beginning to get rid of dreams and start living again. 

I want to thank Cordellia for everything she has done, but she has decided to quit and I wish her all the best. There will be some changes, stay tuned. 

Wildminds is alive. Feel free to make suggestions and to express yourselves.
