I have been unbelievably busy (barely any time for daydreaming lol). I know there are several things I need to respond to but I'm still in the middle of things (that I can't wait to write about). So I'm just making a quick blog post to say I haven't gone anywhere : ) And I'm so excited to read what's been posted since I got so busy!
I can't dance.
Never could. I f*ck up the macarena y'all. I just can't dance. I canNOT twerk; I can't stay on beat. I can body roll and just vibe in place lol, but that's about it.
I also am not great with rights and lefts. Simple addition and subtraction; I'm a calculus tutor. AND operatic soprano- great voice (if I do say so myself); bad at karaoke, like horsesh*t. Maybe one day. My point is, I think I'm like, dyslexic but for beats and cardinal directions. It…Continue
Hi, my name is Elaine, I just started posting today, and just read a suggestion that made me think of one of my own.
An older user suggested basically that there should be a commonly accepted age limit to daydreaming, which would be 25. I see the logic, but I think ultimately this user just picked that number arbitrarily for the year he thought that he could've/should've turned his life around.
He was last active in 2021, and who knows if he'll ever visit…Continue
I mean why not.
If you want to be tumblr mutuals, shoot me a friend request.

Our names are Elise van Hoevelaak and Karen van Leeuwen. We're 17 years old and from The Netherlands. I (Karen) have been experiencing Maladaptive Daydreams since I was about 14 years old.
Currently, we are working on a school project about Maladaptive Daydreaming. While we were doing our research, we stumbled across this network. We were wondering if you are willing to fill out this survey (anonymously) to help us with our project. …Continue

Hi, I am new here. I’ ve been doing MD since I was…I think…12 years old. I didn’t know that something like MD even existed, before I’ ve found this page. As I am learning more and more about me and things that MD supresses, everything seems to make more sence. I’ll appreciate every help I can get here. I am still not fully recovered, yet I now know, that going back is not the right way (despite it being so easy to return to my old habits). I am open to everyone, who would like to talk in…Continue
Well, it's been a good while. Years, to be precise, though you wouldn't know it to look at me.
It's so utterly soul-crushing, and yet so fascinating, to watch time pass and the details change while the foundations of one's life remain exactly the same. I've heard it said that "history never repeats, but it often rhymes", and I couldn't agree more.
Please forgive the vagueness, I know I'm going to sound overly cryptic. I'm just thinking out loud. Something has happened to me…Continue

After reading about it and watching videos/lectures on it I realized that I have the habits and traits of it. After doing further study I heard about <maladaptive Daydreaming. This is my exprience with it
I have a fantasy world and when I'm bored, stressed or overstimulated I got there. I have had it for like 10 years. The fantasy…Continue
I'm a 17 year old, who's just finished schooling. My final examinations got over last month and I'm currently preparing for the competitive exams, more like trying to prepare for them. I haven't been able to study properly for the past one year and I still can't focus. I'd taken therapy last year to treat a mental health issue but just as the therapy got over, I fell into this trap of MD. And I haven't told anyone about this because I have a very strong feeling that nobody will understand.…Continue

For the first 5 1/2 months of this year, I had stayed in a behavioral facility (not for MD, though I don't want to share the personal details of the reasons why I was there). I just got back home last week. While I was there, I was forced to share an entire living space with several other girls. Think of military barracks. There was one room with bunk beds lining the entirety of one wall. We were supervised constantly. About 17 weeks into the program, a few of us (ones with the best…Continue
