Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Yeah, it's really, really hard to pay attention.
Well not really.
I do feel like I'm permanently parenting my persona.
"I don't wanna write, I wanna go on facebook!"
"You hate facebook. You feel horribly alone and bored after 20 minutes on it!"
I want my life to be a solid state of meaning
off of my butt to get past just scheming
demeaning my efforts as I try to glide
on the jet streams and currents up in…Continue
Only recently I decided to look this up on the internet and came across this forum thing! I'm 20 years old and think I should share my story...
I've done this ever since I was little and always believed I would grow out of it, but now i've recently turned 20 and it still happens. I (kind of) have accepted it. I'm at university at the moment and it didn't happen very often as I was happy, but recently found out my boyfriend had been cheating on me (and some family problems arose) and…Continue
Nobody's fault but mine
I want to tell a story, which is not exactly about day-dreaming, but about signals from night dreams, absorbing reality and lack of harmony between the mind and the body. Day-dreaming is also related as the whole thing happened due to fighting it.
"Drowning in my sleep". Mind and body disconnect part
There are theories telling that our mind totally controls our bodies. If we really want something, we can do it,…Continue
Okay, I think I just finished my story. I'm at a good ending spot. This is an update to my previous blog that had the first half of the story. I'm tentatively calling it Painted Scars. Let me know if you think that title fits. Also, for those of you who haven't been here a long time, this is the blog of the main character from my story Miles. It ends with her killing Miles, as it's implied she does in that story. I thought that would be a good ending spot. Otherwise, it…Continue

Between work, family, fiance, car issues, and camp meetings I am just about done. I have not had any alone time since Friday and tonight won't be any different. I look forward to tomorrow night. Not having alone time drives me bonkers. Part of it is other people's drama stresses me out. The other thing is I need me time. Me time is daydreaming, playing video games, petting the kitty, and if its nice out taking a walk in the park.
I've missed the nicest two days this…Continue
I found it very hard for me to daydream with my eyes closed. It may sound strange, because it seems that when our eyes are closed imagination works better and create brighter and more colorfull images.
But when I close my eyes because I've started daydreaming I can't create so bright images as when my eyes are open. I've never been wondering why's that. Maybe closing my eyes is like forcing my brain to daydream and daydreaming should be unforced.
So even when…Continue
Well, i'm writting here tonight because i'm so fustrated. I keep daydreaming the same daydreams over and over again. I'm growing quite tired of them. I can't motivate myself to do anything but go into my dream world and I feel like i'm wasting my life away. I have lots of things I want to do like be a good writer, have good friends, be athletic and in good shape, eat well, etc, etc. But I can't do any of them because I can't make my fastasy life like my real life. I mentioned…Continue
For me my daydreaming has a strong link to depression. I have suffered from life threatening depression since I was in grade school. My emotions in real life where always trying to kill me. It was only in daydreaming where I became someone else that I could escape the self-loathing. I tried different medications and several different years of therapy but it made no difference. It was only in my Christianity that I was able to finally break the power of it. Yet I could not give up the…Continue
3 weeks without (excessive) day-dreaming. Irritation and fustration have gone and my mind is very peaceful. I don't believe in this buddism propaganda but Zen Garden descibes my state of mind now perfectly. Maybe, I should dig into it. What happened after 3 weeks of dreaming detox:
(1) I moved to a beautiful place near Warsaw, called Ząbki, and it's a paradise of earth. In last 2 days I had to check, if I'm in a lucid dream state or not because it was so fantastic. Well,…Continue

Ok, this one might be gross, so beware. Don't read on if you don't want to read about poop.
For the past few days the cats have had really bad diarrhea, and it's been worrying me. At first it was no big deal. They frequently vomit, and it's all part of having really fluffy cats. I figured a little diarrhea now and then was no big deal and would pass. That was for the first couple of days.
Over the past couple of of days it started to really worry me. What if it's…Continue

Chapter 11: Night Fright
I woke up at 4:00am morning to my doorbell ringing, "Who could that be?" I thought to myself as I pressed the buzzer, and opened my door to take a peak. It was Luc and he stomped up the stairs looking pissed as he grabbed me by the neck, slammed my door, and pinned me against the wall, "You listen here you stupid bitch!" he shouted tightening his grip on my neck sweating with anger. "You better back off of her or…Continue

Chapter 10: New Home, New Life
Spending most of the night with my mom packing my things, tomorrow morning I had a flight to NYC to catch. "Make sure to ONLY pack what you will use at the apartment." my mom said bringing in a large rolling suitcase for the clothes I was bringing with me. "Well she told me to only pack my clothes, my computers, and the things I sleep with. Also, Luc is coming with a small moving van to take the computers and…Continue

Chapter 9: Sexting?
It had been 2 months since the last time Stefani and I were together in the same room, we called each other every night sometimes talking for hours about our days and random shit. Tonight though I was about to be introduced to something new that I never could have thought would be nice. I was all ready for bed at 12:30 until I received a text from Stefani "Ugh!! Baby I'm still crying! I can't believe he did that to me!" the…Continue

Chapter 8: Gift From the Heart
I ended up purchasing a few shirts from Hot Topic before Stefani met us back at the store, "I'm back!" she shouted walking to us before a small crowd of people surrounded with cameras and autograph books. We quickly pushed our way out of the crowd and decided to leave the mall and just head back to the hotel to chill. When we got to the hotel we quickly made our way back to the room to avoid the paparazzi, "I…Continue
Just found this site- literaly cried when I saw it. I've been in therapy for years for depression, and this 'overactive imagination thingy' as I call it. I've come quite far with my acceptance of myself.
In high school I cried and prayed out go God to take this horrible distraction away from life-and wondered why I was so different from everyone else. (there's still some times I try and wish it away..)
But, through therapy and -life span…Continue
Im Jurelle Eve 18. Hails from Cebu Philippines. I think I should be open since we all share a similar gift and do something that scares me. Just like this. Well its where a wild mind could rest right?
When I was young I have a lot of friends outside from school usually boys. I was the type of girl who likes to play basketball, riding my bmx with a bunch of boys, and any other rough activities for boys than playing barbie…Continue
Hi, I am new to all this..like many I am finding out, I have heroic daydreams, etc.
Lately I have found myself daydreaming about a man who doesn't even barely know me.
I met him briefly and have had no contact after that...yet he is in constant daydreams.
what is up with that??
BTW: I am 57 yrs old, so it's not like I have a teen crush
Ok, I day-dreamt today for about an hour (at work!) after two and a half weeks of living in reality. But as Edison said, I didn't fail, I just found one more solution, which doesn't work. Last two and a half weeks were pretty busy as I really intended to live in reality and not to day-dream, really. So, a lot of driving (to concentrate), a lot of sports and even assigning to global walking competition with pedometer (so, physical needs are satisfied and, anyway, my summer clothes…Continue
Hmmm... I thought I might post a bit of a story description/summary that I've had written down for a while... I've had many new stories in the time since I've written this, but I've been pretty bad about recording stuff lately...
Well, I also though this story might appeal to a lot of people on this…
