Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Hi. I am obviously new to this site. Not really all that great at introductions(even in this cyber-reality known simply as the internet).
Uh....I have been trying to really figure out just what is wrong with me(mentally) ever since I was about 15. Yesterday, I think I was on the verge of a major nervous-breakdown. I only ate once the whole day at night and did not shower until way late at night(which is unusual for me even if I feel weak from my physical illnesses, because I…Continue
Why do we daydream? Why do we make up characters and interact with them in the scenarios we choose? This question has been puzzling me for sometime and I think I now finally have an answer. As humans we thrive on human interaction, somewhere out there they're is someone at a party having the best of times. He/she is surrounded by the people they love interacting with and all is good in their minds. I think we daydream because we are lonely in a various amount of ways. Some of us truly have…Continue
I probably should have guessed that pacing around for hours on end obsessing over events and people that exist only in my mind wasn’t normal. I did have some suspicions, but I never thought my habit of ‘thinking’ was something like MD. I’ve had an active imagination my entire life, but I don’t think it was excessive until I was about eight years old, maybe a bit younger. Nothing traumatic happened…Continue
I made a YouTube video at the beginning of my daydreaming "cleanse." I just quit right there and then. Awhile after that video was created, I went four days without daydreaming at all and I was very productive, but then after those four days I spent six days daydreaming a lot. …Continue
Hello fellow daydreamers,
The topic i want to discuss today is mainly subjected to as the title suggest,
First of all i'm really glad that we daydreamers have access to this website so that we can talk with each other and discuss our problems, so all the credit goes to the one who made this possible, Cordelia rose.
Now coming to the main topic,
There is a very thin line between your daydreaming and the…Continue
It's now the fourth week I don't daydream anymore!
I don't know whether it is for good, there were times in my life, when very emotional things happened, that I didn't daydream for days - once I even didn't daydream for 8 months. But now nothing unusual has happened.
In the first days I had maybe 40 times a day the impulse to dd, but it had literally the taste of fake. It was, as if I saw some delicious food, and with the first bite I noticed, it is made of plastic. So I…Continue
I'm at my third day completely dreamt away.
I am very happy on one hand because I "unlocked" a new scenario but I still feel a bit guilty and I haven't been able to work in ages. I'm also not doing a lot of meditating or yoga or eating properly so it's sort of my fault. It feels very cyclical and I don't know what is first, but generally I come to a point where I will stop eating properly (yesterday i had just fries and two days ago just a waffle), stop exercising, stop meditating and…Continue
Darkness to Discipleship.
Ever since I was a child, my imagination has been extensive.
As a kid, I had not just one imaginary friend, but a whole tribe.
An imaginary baboon tribe.
Being a child my imagination had the freedom to run wild.
I’d write letters in baboon language
Run around the fresh green grass, leading my “tribe” to safety.
Even leave my sister to play with my imaginary friends instead.
But every child dreams, and so…Continue
what happens when you inner world spills over into reality !!! multiple worlds and characters in time taking root in your daily thoughts until DD robs a bank. Am I being invited into their world or worse still are they becoming my world. Reality ...when I fall into a ever fading time of it it seems unreal, I feel detached confused where have I been for the last hour day week. I journal my minds madness and have deleted and thrown away a many of journals as I read in disbelief and despair at…Continue
Hello! Happy to have myself as a part of this community :) *virtual hugs*
Being here, I wish to write stories of my life, as being someone who loves to daydream. I daydream a lot, but fortunately I had a good control of it. I would describe myself as an imaginative person (as we all are), an introvert who thinks of things deeply, but yet simple-minded at most times.
My mind or my imagination is my secret world. And it all roots back to my…Continue
I need to get out of this place. this is not a question. what am i to do. i cant think straight. my madness is addictive yet becoming dangerous. I am but a passenger time disappears day dream never ending. homicidal grandiose fame who am I. I don't trust the doctors they will say I am delusional. fantasies reality watching from above. did it happen who wrote that it was me I know but I don't know why. My fantasies spill over into reality before but this is real catch me if you can this…Continue
So after having had a lapse last week, I got back into the saddle. I actually find atm that yoga is more useful than meditation, so I'm focussing on that right now. Yoga has the added benefit that I focus on my body, and instead of just sitting there trying to be calm, I can move around a bit and experiment with how things feel. It's a very different way of being into the world and when I come out of it I'm always very clear headed and able to be decisive and do things.

Have you guys ever taken fictional characters that already existed and made them better in your fantasy? As in making them more fleshed out, giving them a backstory, etc. because thats what I do in my fantasies, I take characters of fiction that already exist and make them better. Do you guys do that?
PS: In my fantasy I'm always hanging out with Knuckles the Echidna, Garrus Vakarian, and Tuxedo Mask lol!
My day dream is full of folklore and urban legends. The place that has the most vivid tales of folklore is the FreeState of Kennedy and its surrounding forest. This is a story written in the perspective of a Kennedian man during the height of the FSK's power. It was taken as a truthful testimony in the court of law, and became a bestseller worldwide:
The Testimony of the Poltergeist
They cannot say on what accord that this…Continue
