I'm done

I'm done caring about anyone. No one cares. No one really loves me. The only guy I put my heart to just told me what he though of me. "Weird and Creepy" and you know what? Maybe it is true. Maybe I am strange and all but I have love in me and I will for the righteous. So if he wants to be with another girl and tell me my place to him who am I to deny him his will to free speech? Well I guess nothing really. But I am human and I have rights to speech too. I just feel so unheard. I suppose it is… Continue

Audio books help alot in controlling MDD

Someone mentioned in one of the discussion threads that he/she is staying away from music, and sticking to audio books. I decided to try and it has helped alot! It's like I end up visualizing the dialogue/ scenes as they are read out.  I think my need to MDD is more of a need to use my imagination.

I'm really into french and Russian literature. So I get to control my MDD and get to hear literature. Pure gold!

Do try it.

Avoidant Personality Disorder

Just got this diagnosis, on top of PTSD and BPD. I've never told my therapist about my daydreaming, but one of the criteria is using fantasy as a form of escapism to interrupt painful thoughts. This definitely applied to me and explains why I do this. Found that interesting considering I never mentioned my daydreaming.

Off to daydream right now...had a bad day, again.

How mant times can i write about this? How many times can i think about it? What will it take? Im a hipocrite. Ill be the first to admit it. I try to be positive and optimistic. I am a liar. The truth is, i probably have one of the most severe cases of MDD. And it all feels like a curse. I just dont know anymore...about anything. I cant ask for advice; i wont actually take it. It doesnt matter if i specualte the "whys', "hows", or the "what ifs". Im still going to wake up tomorrow being this…

Today wasn't too bad

Last night I came clean to my husband about my fantasies. He kept prying to get an answer as to why I cry all the time and what is going on with me. Finally I gave in and told him..mostly everything. How I daydream constantly..how Captain Hook is not just a character on a movie to me, but someone close to my heart..how when he gets swollowed by the crocodile I feel depressed and grieve for him as if I have known him in my real life. How in my head, he's a real person and I've formed a…

pacing-related injuries


i know not everyone on here paces, but i do.

as i've mentioned on here before, i used to have a different daydream/set of characters that started when i was 9. then, when i was 12, i actually stopped daydreaming for a month or two. soon enough, my MD came back with new characters, a new story, and... pacing.

since then, i have had several pacing-related injuries, because i get so into the daydreaming that i tend to not watch where i'm going. the most serious one was…

My video is finally done! The one I obsessed over and blogged about


The video I obsessed over is finally finished. It became my obsession in place of daydreaming for awhile, but it's done. These characters are who I want to be. Or maybe a famous, lucrative video editor is what I want to be. I can't tell. But either way, it makes me feel things that I want to replicate in real life.

Also, not sure that video will work embedded, …

What I did today :-D (dream world and real life)

Real life:

-Messed up big time on a really important project in art class. We were making pinch pots. Everyone's pinch pot, EXCEPT FOR MINE, turned out beautifully. I messed up on pretty much every single thing we were supposed to do to make the pot, so it turned out terrible beyond description. The weird thing is, I wasn't even daydreaming the entire time I listened to the teacher's instructions and made the pot.

-Nothing else out of the ordinary really happened

Fantasy… Continue

The disorder Walter Mitty had

(I'm making this post not only for you guys, but hopefully anyone researching what he has)

Most of us have either seen or heard of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". All of us here can guess what he has, MDD. Yes, I know, it's obvious. His sudden "zoning out" and having an explorer version of himself (his ideal self, what he wants to be) enter, he mouths the dialogue of his character. The daydreams are very vivid. He spends his free time daydreaming about traveling the world,…

Does anyone have Tumblr?

I am on there fairly often. I don't post about MD much, but sometimes I do. If you want to follow me anyway though, it's http://illtakethestairs.tumblr.com Don't feel obligated to follow if you don't like it. Just thought I'd throw it out there, for anyone who gets on Tumblr a lot. :)

Finding Out I Had MDD

Sorry if my writing sounds a little weird, I'm tired and a little bit sick.

Okay, so when I was little, I LOVED to play pretend. Well, most little kids do, but I REALLY loved it. It was pretty much the only thing I ever played, and I always took it to the next level.

Fast forward to age 10: I was misdiagnosed by a school counselor as having an "imaginational over-excitability disorder", but no one believed him because he was always diagnosing kids with serious disorders… Continue

Depression and MDD?

Hello ^_^ This is my first post here , so forgive by now any possible mistakes I may make.

So. . . I dont really know what to say...(This looked better when i daydreamed it ._. )



Currently there are a lot of bad things going on in my life: fights at home , bad grades , heartbroken , losing dear ones , etc.

So because of all of this suffering and pain I think I might have got depression as well. It's been going on for months…

My head feels bigger on the inside

Does anyone here watch Doctor Who? (It's a huge trigger for me but I still watch it, LOL.) Okay, remember that one episode where The Doctor gets a distress signal from another TARDIS and ends up in a "bubble universe"? Remember how that one woman there gets possessed by the TARDIS? She asks "Is this how old people feel? Bigger on the inside?" Or maybe you don't watch Doctor Who but you play/watch Pokemon. You know how Pokeballs are really small, but they can hold enormous creatures? My point… Continue

Just wanted to let everyone know I made a Reddit community specifically for Maladaptive Daydreaming.

Are Yours Funny?

Do u get answers through your day dreams? I had problems with meditating. My meditations have turned into day dreams which have ideas I need in them. They are funny, too. Perhaps that is because I have cried in my life so very much. Anybody gets answers to their problems and perhaps are funny, as well? Thanks guys. I love when you post back to me. I am not so alone in the world now that I have you guys.

Confusing feelings of identity--and the trade off of daydreaming for another obsession

I'm slipping. I'm losing touch with reality. And it all started with an innocent video.

I think everyone's daydreams play out like movie scenes. Often times for me, I do something similar with music and create a music video, both in my head and while I'm acting it out. Sometimes, this leads to me making actual videos of me dancing or doing whatever. The most recent urge to do this started on Thursday when I filmed some scenes of me doing my version of a particular song.

How Do You Keep Focused On Important Tasks?

Recently my MD has been preventing me from not only doing things like schoolwork but also things that I actually enjoy doing. For example, I'm on a five day break from school so I decided to get a start some books I bought myself a little while ago. I used to read so quickly and now I can barely get through a page without distracting myself. What are some tips to stay focused? No pills or anything though haha I'd rather focus naturally

Everything around me is keeping me where I am. That means my job, my acquaintances, my thinking. I have been brought to many realizations, and I don't know if that has made my MD lessen because I can't hide in my alternate reality or because I don't have the same use for my alternate reality. Aspects of my job have genuinely sucked for a couple of years now. Since a good portion of my MD is replaying things that have actually happened, I have spent a great deal of time 'fixing' scenarios in my… Continue
