Hey everyone. I just stumbled across this. A 60 year old man told a mother to make her baby "shut up" calling the baby a "nigger" and when the baby wouldn't stop crying, he actually went over and…Continue

I was wondering does anyone know where Hank is. I knew that he was going to delete his account but I didn't think he would delete it without telling me anything. Me and him were really close so I…Continue

So here's the thing. I used to love maladaptive daydreaming because it gave me a safer happier world to rely on. But now I realized, I could've had so much more in life if I didn't spend hours and hours daydreaming. If I'm not listening to music and pacing in the room, I'm zoning out during study time and engaging in scene playing in my head. Either that or I allow myself to sleep for a period of thirty minutes just so I could engage in some sort of fantasy in my head which then turns into 2…Continue

I'm currently in grade 12 and I have to balance my DD life with studying. My mom's telling me to get a job to work part time on the weekends. I've had a job before but it was only in the summer where I didn't have to balance DDing with studying. Although that job was everyday, it was only for a few hours and I didn't have to constantly socialize with coworkers and deal with custormers(I worked with kids). In this current job, I'll be a cashier, I'm not sure how many hours I'll have to work…Continue

A few months ago. I was researching more about the Highly Sensitive Person. I came upon a term called the Empath. And I think the empath completely describes this "illness" and us maladaptive daydreamers. Of course that doesn't apply to everyone here. But a lot of us, from seeing other posts have described themselves to be creative, empathetic, perhaps a little socially awkward and likes to be alone. Empaths also love to dayream. So do think about whether you are an Empath.

I've never been theraphy before. The only thing that I've done is see a social worker which I stopped going to after she reccomended me to theraphy which I never went to because I wanted to focus on school. Thing with me is, I get good grades and I usually have an over 80 average but this semester I just lost motivation after getting a 70 in math last semester so I started off very badly, I didn't have the motivation nor the desire to do well. I skipped classes, I couldn't concentrate during…Continue
Thanks for accepting my friend request :)
Cool page!! You actually used 2 out of 3 of my favorite colors...black and blue!!!
Hello, I just wanted to respond here to the comment you made on my blog, just in case you don't check back for replies on blogs. Thank you for your comment, it was very interesting!
What you said about your 8th grade teacher really touched me. I felt like that about a manager at one of my old jobs, too. He was not physically attractive, just as you said about your teacher, yet I had vivid sex dreams about him, and desired approval from him. I was one of his favorite workers and he always complimented me. The exact same situation I'm having now! Although, this one IS quite physically attractive, and so I'm all kinds of confused haha. But the thing you said about avoiding him, I have to fight not to avoid my current manager. I have to fight to overcome that urge to avoid eye contact and lock up whenever he's around.
Also, I understand why you'd be drawn to an older man. I've been there, too. It can be really exciting! I hate to use the word attention whore, but I've felt like that, too. Back when I was around your age, I would flirt with/hook up with older men and would feel kind of proud of myself. I'd brag to my friends about it because I felt accomplished. I felt excited. I would obsess over those moments and replay them over and over.
are you there ? now ?
