What if maladaptive daydreaming is a medical necessity?

Posted on November 1, 2016 at 2:32pm 2 Comments

 have not generated any new input for a long time but I can to realize that my condition could have been a form of self-medication to help me deal with my sleep apea.  In my case, I suffered from depression beginning from the third grades, that is also when I can remember the day dreaming.  In my case day dreaming was about creating characters, stories and above all relationships that made me happy.  Happy enough to create serration, I am sure this was a method of self coping that my body…

I haven't been visiting this site in awhile.  I finally managed to publish my first novel as an ebook.  It is on a site called smashwords.com, you can find it by doing a search on the author name which is "Veradance".  You can download 20% for free so give it a look.  The reason I bring it up was this is really the first productive thing I have done with MD.  I am close to 60 and have lived with this my whole life, I learned to manage it.  I hope to write more and improve with each one.  I…

Depression

Posted on May 23, 2011 at 4:04am 1 Comment

For me my daydreaming has a strong link to depression.  I have suffered from life threatening depression since I was in grade school.  My emotions in real life where always trying to kill me.  It was only in daydreaming where I became someone else that I could escape the self-loathing.  I tried different medications and several different years of therapy but it made no difference.  It was only in my Christianity that I was able to finally break the power of it.  Yet I could not give up the…

Oldest MD ??

I am begining to suspect, I may be the oldest member currently attached to this Maladaptive Dreamer.   Good news, finally I am leading the curve on something!  It must be a challenge to build an interactive group from a selection of people who by their very defination do not interact with other real human beings, at least not well or on an emotional level.  There are of course exceptions but in general I think that…

Hi,

Just did a search based on age because of all the new members and am sending a "hello!" off to people in the old as dirt (like me!) crowd. 

I used to live in FL and miss the green but not the humid. I am a hermit on a mountain in NM.

hi Jane--I'm having awful trouble this end-the computer keeps blocking me,it wants my google account no.But I dont have a computer or an account----I'll give you my e-address(I'm not a creepo or sexual deviant etc)--goldrose@live.com.au

           I will be a bit slow answering,as I only use my libraries' computers once or twice a week(Ihave to go up a big hill.)

          I'm so glad that you're in my age range and have the same type of FPP as me and I would love to know what your rules are for not going "over the edge"

                                              all the best,

                                                                  Margo. xxx

I am ,like you, older than many of the participants and feel like my dreaming is in general well controlled.  I actually didn't realize until recently that it was particularly unusual.  I thought most people dreamed (almost) as much, but their dreams were just mundane & boring.  I also am Christian and particularly love the catholic saints.  I will talk to them , or to someone about them, to help me decide a course of action, or to delve further into my spiritual journey.  I am always respectful & loving toward them and do not see this as sinful.  I have received inspiration & comfort as well as motivation to study difficult subjects like John Of the Cross' Dark night of the Soul.  I would be interested on your take on this.
