Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I'm Jennifer and am 20 years old. I must have joined this site when I was about 14-15 years old and have not visited it in a few years. I am glad to see it is still here.
I used to daydream every single night. I started a plot with characters when I was about 8 years old...I am almost 21 now and am still using the same story line and characters.…Continue
A heavy snowstorm has knocked out the schools and workforce alike, blinded the streets and shaded everything milky white. You wouldn't be able to stand outside without being touched by the sky in between blinks.
It had snowed before but it's not winter in my city unless it's like this.
A few years back I was released from class midday when the temperature hit past -27F.
Now it's warm and 30F, but each step in the earth feels like shallow quicksand, 'cause you fall…Continue

Music is my very favourite thing. It acts as a tool to help me evoke the mood of a specific 'scene' inside my brain. I even learned to make myself cry on cue. I think I'm a very dramatic person.

I keep rewriting this entry because DDing about writing this is so much easier and exciting than actually doing it. Actually doing it involves gathering my thoughts, analyzing and acknowledging my feelings, all the while trying to choose the right words to convey it all. Fuck it.
I feel anxious. I'm afraid I'm not going to sleep tonight and I haven't been able to daydream it all away today which adds to my sleep anxiety. I'm trying not to freak out but I feel it in my chest and it…Continue

I am not sure I ever want to give up entirely because sometimes it's entertaining and comforting.
But does anyone have tips that have worked for them to stop or lower daydreaming? I have tried to cut out triggers like for example I listen to music much, much less now.
Any and all comments would be appreciated thanks guys xx
