Is it just me or does this mainly affect women

I’ve been trying to stop daydreaming for awhile now. I really want to stop but, it’s like a gravitational pull that I can never resist I don’t know if it’s my lack of relationships or what but, I do know it’s something that I would like to stop. Stopping is not an issue for me but staying consistent is. I feel like I’ve tried everything and I’m disappointed in myself because, it seems like I’m just running in circles.

January 1st, 2018

New year, new me, right? Yeah no. It'll be the same me most likely. Just yesterday I celebrated my four month anniversary as well as Christmas with my boyfriend, Grady. We've had quite a lot happen in these four months. Is it bad that so much has happened that I can't even remember our first kiss? Anyways, I feel really happy with this relationship because he isn't pressuring me into things or rushing anything. He's the first person I've said "I love you" to in quite some time, and I'm very…

But no seriously hopefully when i have more time i will make a blog post about my paras, because i miss this network and i miss making progress in terms of my MaDD. I have made some progress and music its not so much of a trigger for my MaDD (and it was my main trigger) so thats cool i guess!! But i wanna keep going.

Thanks for 44…

Hey everyone!

Just a quick update!!

G and I are doing well, so I won't really go into our relationship in this entry...

So in this entry, I'm going to focus on two main things; a leadership conference I just recently had and my maladaptive daydreaming.

Okay yes, I know, this is a site for maladaptive daydreaming, but this leadership conference has quite a few things to relate, and mostly to my depression and anxiety which are the two key factors in the evolution…

becoming the daydream

my daydreaming has decreased a lot lately, and i think i might have an idea why. 

as i've mentioned on here several times before, my daydreaming tends to decrease when i'm in a relationship. my daydreams have a strong romantic element, so my theory is that when i'm getting that romance in real life, my needs are met and i don't feel the need to daydream as much. i'm currently in a new relationship as of last month, and i'm not daydreaming nearly as much as i used to. 

but i…

Yesterday I had another appointment with my Therapist. I've been going to her for my daydreaming for a few months but this session was more disheartening than others. I want to switch therapists but I have no idea who in the area has experience. She has helped me but the feelings of frustration are increasing especially with her saying that she "isn't seeing the effort needed."

During the first few sessions I knew things were going to be difficult. She mentioned in these sessions she…

Personality Tests

I am the kind of person that takes personality tests. All the time. Mostly just for fun. Or sometimes to prove something to someone. I am very self aware, largely in part to the fact that I have hundreds of different characters in my head and because my fantasy and reality tend to blur, I've learned to be hyper aware of who I am. I am very confident in knowing myself.

Anyway.

I thought it would be fun to experiment with some of these personality tests. I started…

October 25th, 2018

Hey everyone! I'm back! I started school so I've been very busy lately, with all the schoolwork and field hockey... so I've actually been in a steady relationship with Grady (I believe I mentioned him in a previous post) since August 31st so there's yet another thing to add onto my stress. It's been hard to juggle a social life as well as this academic stuff, and to make things even more complicated, I'm on math team and in another club called Captains Club. This club has already…

Broke

I'm broke now. Used to work, made enough$ to pay my house mortgage plus. But now I'm on USA disability for mental illness. Angry. Super anger. My birth father is a pedophile, molested me from the ages 2 -15. My mother allowed it. I'm considering becoming a hitman, whacking pedophiles, ridding the planet of abusers. For cash. 2 pay off my house note

2018 Life Update

It's been a while since I've posted here, though I've been lurking every now and then. Can you believe I've been using this site for 6 years?

Anyway, I'm now 21 years old, and my daydreaming has almost entirely stopped---I can no longer focus on the world around me, and I DEFINITELY can't focus on daydreams for hours at a time anymore. I still have the desire to return to my daydream world, but it just doesn't happen. I lack the mental energy.

The fogginess in my mind and short…

I can't take it anymore!!!

I just wanted to pour out my thoughts here. It's just that daydreaming really has drained my mental capacity and motivation. Sometimes, when I'm in conversations, my attention span really doesn't cooperate with me no matter how much resistance I put in. When I'm trying to follow instructions, I literally don't remember what each step is right after reading them. The worst part is that I'm trying to get good grades on my last year of high school and it's very difficult to…

Thank you!

Hi everyone, I’m so sorry I have no idea how this website works yet or who’s going to see this but I just wanted to say thank you to you all! I’ve been feeling so isolated and lonely,  but after finding this site with so many people like me it just makes me beyond happy and so relieved- it really has changed my life just from reading a couple of your stories:) thank you so much for existing xx

A Bit About My Daydreams

I am a maladaptive daydreamer, like everyone else on this site.  It's something that I've done most of my life that Ii'm consciously aware of.  I'm not sure why but I think that it started partly as something to do and keep me entertained during boring periods during whatever day to day activities but I think in part it's also a 'coping mechanism' for stressful or unpleasant events and I think that it's also down to my natural 'wiring' that I engaged with and…

August 23rd, 2018

Wow, you all probably thought I left permanently or something! It's been nearly a month I guess. A lot of stuff has happened in my life. For the first time ever, I think I have fallen out of love. Things between Sam and me have just gotten a little... distant. He hasn't been communicating with me quite as often, which leads me to ultimately not thinking about him more and more. We just started talking again today. Today, of all days! My post is going to be mainly about the daydreams/dreams…

Seeking more tangible things

I literally spent nearly 20 years day dreaming about needing a boyfriend, but just today, I feel that was a scary thing to do.

I don't know many people who've done this! They basically just payed attention to others and got the partner they wanted, in a super outgoing manner. I wonder if maybe I blocked myself from people too much by diving into MDD. I was never attracted to many real people throughout my life, as they weren't as favorable as my MDD characters. So, I wondered…

Expressing yourself is everything

Everybody use to gossip about me and taunt me in school for a simple reason: I didn't talk at all. I was your shy awkward type who didn't ever fit in. I had a couple friends at a time, but not too many. Everybody else was extremely chatty, super outgoing and extrovert—"and neurotypical." I was the only student that had autism spectrum disorder, so I was challenged with communicating and interacting. So my school and college job experiences were rather traumatic. Even into my…
