Why I stopped

I used to think MD was cool. Kind of like when someone smokes. I was a young kid, and didn't know what harm MD can actually do. I did believe that MD was assuring me that life will get better and adventurous, at that. So I looked forward to experiencing an amazing life. What I didn't realize is that MD was lying to me the whole time. It didn't promise anything of the sort. It was just a sequence of entertaining stories in my head that kept me going. I have noticed while I was doing…

Looking for a study/work partner who is in the same boat as I am!

I have been daydreaming ever since I was a kid- different fantacies at different stages in life. Ultimately this impacted my social life, my observation skills, my personality and my studies. I did manage to score good marks, but I alone know how much I struggled to focus. I have discussed this with my family, but no one seemed to take this seriously.

I have often felt alone, felt like I was the only one with this issue. I was surprised to learn that there are so many sailing on this…

Does you feel like you're not maturing correctly because of MD?

Hi everyone, how are you all doing ??

Today I was thinking about how my MD condition interrupts me strongly in my "maturing". I feel like it blocks me from doing work and other "real life" responsabilities. Almost as if it'll keep me in an infantile behavior for so long and I just cant break free from this...

I dont trust myself anymore because all my doings are interrupted by Daydream, out of my control...

And I feel so bad to be like this, I dont produce, I'm a adult and I wish… Continue

What do "normal" people think about?

Hey all, like so many of you, I've been working on stopping daydreaming. But one obstacle I've found is I don't know what thoughts are considered "normal".
Like, when I'm busy it's not always easy, but its easier, to not daydream. But what do people who don't daydream do when they have nothing to do?
What happens in their head while they are waiting in a queue or stuck in traffic?

How do I stop that

im Daydreaming between 3 up to 6 hours a day. I dont even know when this all started. I always did that and thought it would be normal and now I realised that it isn't. I cant have a normal conversation, without asking twice what they saying. I am struggling to learn for exams or even my final exam in a month and a half.I always get distracted by my own world and I dont know how to escape.

Meus devaneios

Anxiety Attack During Daydream

Hi, this is my first blog post. I joined a while ago but I've been too nervous to use the website.

I wanted to share an experience that I had a couple nights ago that kind of scared me.  I normally listen to music while daydreaming at night, typically very late into the morning (sometimes up until after 6 am). Sometimes I think about very sad things that cause me to stay awake.

I was having one of those *moments*- if that's what I should call it- when I was daydreaming about…

The Root cause of MD

We maladaptive daydreamers spend so much time and emotion on imaginary people in our head. But we must come to the realisation that even if our imaginary friend comes to life we wont be happy. Some people think that the only solution to maladaptive daydreaming is to make those daydreams come true , convert them into reality, make their real world so perfect that there won't be any need to daydream. But that's not true. Because MD is not like normal dreams, you wont get happiness by…

Can't fix my sleep cycle due to daydreams

I have problem getting up before completing my sleep, whenever I stay up late and then try to get up from sleep with a help of an alarm, i first get into consciousness and then tell myself how am going to get up from my bed after I have this daydream session only to find myself fall unconscious due to sleep again. Then even If I don't sleep during the daydream session I can't get off the bed and do my 'really mandatory work' in real life before spending the time on my bed enslaved to these… Continue

I preferred my dreams

Ever since I was so young, I preferred my fantasies over real individuals and events. I took the way life looked for granted. I hoped to someday meet my ideal boyfriend. Thing is, the kind of friends I sought could never be ideal or perfect. For the past twenty years, I'd stare at a wall or the floor and imaging an ideal life and relationship. Then important matters would pop up, and I'd snap my face awake and realize I'm making it all up. If I took action and made things happen. Not…

Stuck in the same Cycle.

I have been daydreaming for a very long time. It wasn't so bad when I was in school because I could throw myself into homework and projects. But once I graduated from college, it got out of control. I imagined right after I graduated, that I would be discovered and nurtured by a mentor and become successful. I didn't know what I wanted to do and I didn't do anything but wait, and daydream and imagined something better would come along. I applied this principle to my relationships and…

Why the wardrobe?

I sometimes don't realise that I'm dreaming. The other day I found myself staring at the wardrobe with one sock on and the other in my hand. I must have been there for about 15 minutes. I only snapped out of it because there was a noise in the house. Later I was thinking I should get a grip on my MD and in the same minute thought of a new plot! I have to laugh at myself but sometimes it's not funny.
