Is Anyone Else Depressed After Daydreaming?

Hi everyone,

  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.…

"First Snow"

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…

The part that Music plays

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. In my family this is made to seem like a bad thing and they've stopped taking me seriously now because they say I'm 'too dramatic.' They laugh at me and joke about me being a 'flake' and treat me like I'm not important. In my daydreams I'm important. People actually care what I think. Often when I'm…

What happens when you get to the point that you feel you can't live without it?

This is where I am... I really don't want to face reality anymore... I have a mental health assessment (I'm from the UK) on the 17th... So I'm going to admit the enormity of my MDD then. Does anyone else feel they can't live without their characters?

Actual dreams containing daydream people

I don't really know what the aim of me writing this down is except to get it out of my head I guess.

Last night I had a dream about my daydream crush he was waiting at a bar to meet me and to begin with he was chatty and I felt nervous like a real date and then he began ignoring me and talking to other people. I felt really upset. I went to get a drink and when I went back to the table he was gone and then reappeared to tell me he was going off with his friends.

I woke up feeling in a… Continue

Anxiety

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…

30 day Challenge to beat MD

Dear reader,



I propose a challenge that I'm going to do. I can't say for sure that it will stop me or you from daydreaming and truly beat MD but I'm going to give it a go anyway and hope that it works. Personally, I think the biggest problem with MD is that it ruins and gets in the way of my real life, but I feel like my daydreams are a direct reflection of what I truly want.



So, here's a challenge I propose: for 30 days give 1 hour or even 10 mins at the same time every… Continue

Giving up tips? Please share...

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
