Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I found this network about 2 years ago now. And instantly I felt like I had this. Though I not one to self diagnose so after a lot of research I decided I wanted to talk to a professional about this. I was and still am extremely embarrassed of this but after about 6 months of having told someone I think others may be able to benefit as I have after speaking to a phycologist and having had therapy done.

Desde os meus seis anos de idade, que sonho acordada, hoje eu tenho 43 anos de idade. Realmente eu não podia imaginar que existia tanta gente como eu, eu chego ficar espantada de relatos muitas vezes semelhantes aos meus devaneios. Mas somente agora com 43 anos, que percebi que tinha alguma coisa errada comigo, pois tudo que planejei não aconteceu, eu não consegui concluir. Não fiz a faculdade de psicologia que eu desejei, não construí uma família, não tenho ainda o meu carro, que tanto…Continue

I ALWAYS KNEW THAT MY WILD FANTASIES ARE NOT NORMAL COMPARED TO OTHER PEOPLE I HEARED ABOUT MD ONLY ABOUT THE LAST WEEK
BASED ON WHAT I HAVE READ IT IS ALMOST A DISORDER THAT PROTECTS ME FROM ANOTHER MENTAL ILLNESS
AS FAR AS I REMEBER I HAVE BEEN DAY DREAMING I CAN NOT REMEMBER A PHASE OF MY LIFE WITHOUT DAY DREAMING BEING A PART OF IT
I KNOW THAT I NEED TO GET RID OF THIS HABIT OR AT LEAST MINIMIZE IT AS IT AFFECTS MY LIFE NEGATIVLY
SO I HAVE LOTS OF QUISTIONS…Continue
Hey, everyone. It's been a while since I was active here. So I wanted to share what's going on, and also to know what's new with you guys too. I got work as a Marketing/Business Development Associate for this educational company named CareerLabs. And the work is hectic. I'm out in the field from anywhere between 2 hours to almost 8 hours, connecting with officials in colleges to get events organized for the company. So my work is hectic and I barely have any time to relax, unlike before. I'm…Continue

and i just want to talk, you know? talk about everything i'm feeling but i can't talk to anyone. i can't talk about it with my mom without her freaking out and wanting to solve a problem that she can't and she doesn't understand. she doesn't understand me because she is also overloaded and it is also so difficult...
I don't have time for anything, I don't like and can't do anything at work, I can't stand college anymore, I can't stand my family and I just…Continue
I am in front of the computer trying to start a work assignment and a college activity and I just CANNOT get it done. I am feeling so agitated, I feel like daydreaming but I can't concentrate, and my brain is completely confused, like I can't understand what I am supposed to do, they are simple things but I just can't get it into my head. Have you ever felt this way?
Hello, any of you like me come from Wien? or in any case neighboring places, it would be nice to be able to get to know each other and exchange experiences and advice. Have a nice day, Alex

What psychiatrich therapy do you have?
Hello everyone and thanks for sharing your experiences :) ... I'm so happy that I found this blog...but I don't what to say to start, so I will say what comes to my mind... like right now I'm worried because I feel like there's an audience watching me and listening to me what I'm saying out loud (in my head) as I am writing these words... I have a long story with mental issues... I'm 22 now and I'm suffering from anxiety and depression since middle school...after that it all went worse and…Continue
This is my first post in a long time. Decided to go back into therapy for MD, as the daydreaming has been getting a little overwhelming...multiple emotional breakdowns in the past few months. My "intake" appointment with the psychologist went somewhat unexpectedly in that she has no idea where to send me. She says I don't have depression or anxiety, and they've never had anyone that she knows of with a case of maladaptive daydreaming.
Recent research out of Eli Somer's lab shows it…Continue
The narration of this film references antiquated Freudian psychoanalytic theory, refrigerator mother theory and other anachronisms, and should be taken in a historical context. Catalogue description: This film studies the effect of emotional deprivation on the sensory-motor behaviour of infants aged 7 to 18…Continue
