Wanted to share some things from my therapy sessions

Hello! 

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. 

  1. MD is a form of dissociation. It allows you to disconnect…

  • Hi kalliope I am new here. I mistakenly deleted your comment. Sorry for that. But your comment made me feel there's someone in this world that cares about my daydream disorders. TYSM for that. Well i ve tried many things but what helps the most is meditations. I recommed you to try it. Practice yoga meditation & physical exercise everyday. It will help a lot. & What about u. What u daydream about and what have u tried.

Quanto tempo para saber o que acontecia comigo

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…

QUISTIONS

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…

Been a while since I've been here. Felt like sharing recent events.

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…

New

I’m 16 and I have been living with maladaptive daydreaming since I was nine, it all started when u got sexu@lly @ssulted by my dad from the age of 6-12, there are certain triggers to it and most of the time I get angry by these triggers and I scream not nothing comes out, it takes away all my negative energy but I did something similar when I was younger where I was tense up my whole body and shake to get rid of the energy, my md starts at night and I have this whole story to it and I would… Continue

Newbie

Hey Everyone,



I’m glad to know I’m not the only person with this maladaptive daydreaming problem. I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember. I’m 35 now. They’re too embarrassing to share. Recently I’ve gotten down to about an hour of MD a day, which is a big improvement, but I feel so empty. I also feel guilt and shame for having this problem. I know I need to find healthier ways to relax, which is what I’ve been doing, but some days are like pushing through concrete to get… Continue

i'm sad. and i'm tired (breakdown)

i'm sad. and i'm tired

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…

confused and agitated

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?

This video made me stop and re-think everything

https://youtu.be/LrRfjmv-5cQ ;    I don't work but still this scares me of how less time we've got. 

https://youtu.be/CEpFVz5vVVM ;    This one.... I can't quite point out how I feel about it.

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…

For those in therapy, what kind of therapist do you have??

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…

1965. Effect of emotional deprivation and neglect on babies. Subtitled in English

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChoOExRLT4Q

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…

Fear of being caught

I don't know if this only happens to me, but are you also afraid of people hearing/seeing you daydreaming? Sometimes I think I daydream "out loud" and it makes me insecure. Like, when I stop daydreaming I don't remember if I was speaking or not. Does this happen to you too? Sorry for the bad explanation, I don't really know how to say that
