Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
So, I'm fifteen now, and this has been happening since the third grade. I was always embarrassed because I'm a sophomore in high school. No one would understand if they knew. My Dad doesn't know anything, not even about this site. It was always awkward when people asked why I was talking to myself. All I can say is that it is so great to have a name for my "condition" and to know that I'm not alone.
So I just told my mom about my MD. I also showed her this site and had her read the explanation of MD on the home page. She took it really well. She asked me how often I daydream and I told her that it depends/varies - which is true. She also said that I can't dream my life away though I already know that. That's part of the reason why I'm here on this site. I'm not ready for my dad to know though. He and I don't have a very good relationship. We argue a lot. Anyways just wanted to share…Continue

Okay, so I just did an internet test here: http://www.aspergerstestsite.com/
Just for the hell of it, to see how close I'd be to having Aspergers Syndrome (a mild form of autism), because there's this theory I heard once:
There's a line, and on one major extreme is schizophrenia, and on the other major extreme is autism. Most people are towards the middle, and slightly into- or…Continue
I have a fantasy (amongst others) about this beautiful, strong, succesful woman, largely representing my personality in her verbal behavior but much more lucky when it comes to genetic material...I call her Juno. So why is she female? And what does she mean to me? Reasons I can think of:
1. Wanting to be complete
So she is not male. What psycho-analists call the anima, if you will?
I have to apologize for another long read beside my first blog post, especially towards people with short attention spans. But this may help. Initially this was intended as a personal response, but I think this could be important to more people here. What triggered it was Cordellia's remark to me about:
the difficulty of making friends.
Probably your fantasy world is much more attractive than the outside world. This keeps you from truly being interested.…
I would just D-I-E! Too much goes on in my dds. Too many serious stories and wayyy too much sex to be real....... Glad I have you guys to spill to.
My story, APOLOGIES for the long read I'm putting you through!
my name is Floris, 35 now, male and I'm from the Netherlands, a small country with plenty of rainy days but also sunny ones where feelings of guilt are placed on pale people not going outside because the summers don't always last very long. I have spent a large part of my life inside my mind and have found a rich life there, but also experienced pain for the lack of a life outside of that mind.…
I can't handle my daydreaming anymore, I'm fighting to focus and its so difficult. I have become an expert at staring at something and looking like I'm paying attention, all teachers think I'm super attentive but I'm looking at them but I can't hear or really see them because I'm daydreaming, I've spaced out. I was watching a movie for school that was only about 8 minutes long and I had to repeat one bit several times because I kept on missing it because of daydreaming. It's so frustrating…Continue
The words of this song hit a cord with me.
In this faded dream,
Can you hear me when I scream?
To you... ,
Have they been in vain?
I am still the same,
All my fear endured my pain,
Explain what remains,
Empty mirrors only fill my eyes,
Nothing's left to recognise,
So I tell myself that I'm alive,
I still hear you,
Tock tick tock,
Time has frozen here,…

As many of you know, since i've talked about it a little on chat/forum, usually my DD is about a relationship with someone else. In the last couple of years 2/3 people have been in my DD quite frequently. One of those people is an artist i admire a lot and i follow his work through his blog and twitter. I used to DD about him a lot in the past but eventually it faded away and i was able to keep following his work without DDing about him. So one day i opened twitter and he was saying…Continue
I love the way it feels to write out daydreams. I love writing in general, but it just feels so great to write out my daydreams... I don't do it often, fearing someone will find them, or walk in on me writing. I don't like people reading my stories anyway, but my DD's? No way... so if I write them, I crumple it up and throw the papers away. But when I write them, it's my way of bringing them into reality in some way. When I read stories/books, I picture them in my mind and they feel…Continue

Hello, my name is Rachel and I'm a fourteen (soon to be fifteen) year old girl from the United States. I joined this website because, well, i was up at 3 am daydreaming and I tried to use the internet as a distraction. I came along this website and it made me feel normal.. well normal in some way. I guess it's better to say I felt less alone. I'm a lyricist and I actually get some inspiration from my daydreams. This is how I show my friends how these…Continue
