Melanie replied to NuVonde's discussion Living comfortably with MDD
"The consensus from Eli Somer and those investigating maladaptive daydreaming is that if your daydreaming does not distress you in any way nor hinder your ability to function socially, academically, or professionally, then your daydreaming is not…"

Melanie replied to Valeria Franco's discussion Wildminds updating, opinions needed!
"Personally, I'm a fan of the tagline "where wild minds come to rest." That's how I feel every time I login :)"

Melanie replied to Jessica Ballantyne's discussion I make faces when I daydream
"I feel that! That same thing happens to me every day. Someone will be telling me instructions or asking me to do something and I'm not hearing a word they say because my head is somewhere else, and then they get irritated with me. It's…"

Melanie replied to Daniel C Cunningham's discussion violent fantasizing
"Daniel, You're absolutely right. I should have clarified: MD is a very ineffective way to deal with trauma or any other circumstances in life. I certainly believed at one point that MD was helping me process and cope with negative…"

Melanie replied to Spencer Nassar's discussion My Experience
"Spencer,  First of all, thanks for sharing. I'm in the same place as you. I was in denial about having MD for a long time, but I can't deny the fact any longer. I find it so difficult to explain my behavior to the people in my life.…"

Melanie replied to Daniel C Cunningham's discussion violent fantasizing
"Daniel, You're definitely not alone in this. I am plagued by daydreams in which I am either a perpetrator or a victim of violent abuse. Revenge fantasies are some of my most intrusive as well. They disturb me greatly, and I wonder if I am a bad…"

Melanie replied to Jessica Ballantyne's discussion I make faces when I daydream
"Ariane, you read my mind. I have that same paralyzing fear that it's inevitable I'll get crazier and crazier until I die alone. With that in mind, I'm trying my best not to sabotage myself and create some self-fulfilling prophecy.…"

Melanie replied to Blanca Margatroid's discussion Has COVID affected your MD?
"Hi Ariane, Same here! I've only recently began monitoring my MD and trying to keep the time I spend daydreaming to a minimum, but like you said, with chronic depression it can be challenging to stay motivated to quit. I'm a bit bipolar, so…"

Melanie replied to Nathan's discussion Making a Documentary on MD?
"I know that feeling. My therapist didn't give me the time of day when I tried to explain to her (several times!) what maladaptive daydreaming was. It's really disheartening. But we're not alone, and that's all that matters.…"

Melanie replied to Sarah Araújo's discussion HI
"I feel the same way! I want to try to improve my social skills now, but it's impossible at the moment. It's frustrating that I'm finally feeling the urge to improve my life, but now I can't do it. Haha. I'm 23 :)"

Melanie replied to Jessica Ballantyne's discussion I make faces when I daydream
"You're definitely not alone. I was also a lonely kid who got bullied in school and used daydreams to cope, and now I'm a lonely adult with severe MD. I'm so glad we can talk here and support each other. "

Melanie replied to Nathan's discussion Making a Documentary on MD?
"As someone suffering from MD every day, unable to get any real help or validation outside of forums like these, I would totally contribute to funding a MADD documentary!"

Melanie replied to Blanca Margatroid's discussion Has COVID affected your MD?
"Ariane, Your post was reassuring! It's nice to think that I might return to how I was doing before the pandemic. It's awesome that you're able to control when you do and don't MD. I hope to have that self-control and ability to…"
