Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I know not everyone is able to donate anything to this site. But if you can, remember how important this is to all of us. Even $5 helps.
I t's too bad when i know that i could do this ,but i couldn't because of my MDD.It generally happens to me in my studies when i tried to put my best and i have almost prepared for class test or paper but at last i couldn't get good result because most of the time at last moments i start day dreaming and then waste my lots of time in fantasies and when i come in my real life lost so much things....people think i'm dull, not willing to complete any task and also careful and lazy but it's…Continue
I can't do it. I thought I could tell someone I trust, but I can't do it! DDing is SO personal to me that I'm embarressed. I'm worried that they will think I'm sick, in the head. "Why would you fantasize about that?" Well, I don't know why I do it - but I can't stop because it's like I HAVE to. Keeps me sane. End of story.
today I find out about my daydreaming also has a name maladaptive daydreaming and it's not only me who has it and it's really a little bit relif to know that
i was start this thing at age of 15 when I had an accident and i lost my one hand after that i lost my confident and outside world is really hurting me so much ,it still do!,so i start dreaming about myself as a perfact person who has everything in her life back than i really don't think about it as a big…Continue
I use my MD as a means of escape. I lie to myself, saying it really helps me but in the end I know it’s just an excuse. With each and every daydream that I have I lose another piece of myself. I use my MD as a distraction from my own feelings and emotions so I don’t have to face them. It’s so hard to even explain what I’m feeling on a normal basis and I write most things off as "whatever" and play indifferent. But it’s because I‘m not sure how I should feel…Continue
Okay, earlier this year I made friends with an exchange student, and she's pretty damn awesome. Her birthday's tomorrow, along with her party, and honestly, I'm kinda scared for it. She's inviting some people in her sports team she just joined that I don't really know, and I don't really actually mind that, I think. I've got her present and I'm a little nervous she won't like it. I was actually looking for a wolf silverfoil, one of these type of things:…Continue
Hi everyone - I havent been here for a while...moving house is a really big thing. But I am SO happy in my new abode! (:
Anyway, yeah...I am a bit of a fan of Jane Austen and in learning a bit about her life and how she died quite young and without a partner in the end. I wonder if she was truly happy? "Persuasion" was one of the last books she had written and is a favourite of mine. It is an agonising story (like a lot of them I guess) but has a wonderful end. I wonder how the…Continue
I've been doing a lot of thinking. When people use the word "introvert" to describe me, I get really sensitive. Why are words like "weird" and "introverted" negative to most people (myself)? I'm starting to see a positive side to it.
Don't get me wrong, the maladaptive daydreaming has got to stop. I don't think I could ever see it as a positive thing for me, maladaptive means counterproductive. Daydreaming, just daydreaming every now and then and letting your imagination…Continue
Today wasn't the best. My third day at driver's ed, the last two were fine, nothing big, but today during our thirty minute break I kinda stood alone awkwardly, and I had two so called friends who just passed me up and then I saw them pointing at me and laughing and it made me mad and broke my heart. Eventually I went to sit next to my other friend, which I didn't want to cause I felt like I was annoying her, but I didn't wanna stand alone anymore. So I sat next to her and she didn't seem…Continue
IT's been awhile since I've posted anything on here, partly because I never think of it, and partly because I have trouble finding the motivation to articulate what I'm thinking in a coherent way.
Probably, if I had a good group of close and reliable friends to spend time with in REAL life, even 1 or 3, you probably wouldn't see me on chat even once a month.
I sort of feel my university life has been a waste. It happened so fast. There I was in high school, unhappy with the…Continue
I havent posted in awhile :P. ive thought of good topics but by the time i get to a computer ive forgotten.
I was thinking alot the otherday and i was thinking "is md a gift?"
i know there was a post before called "gift or curse" and alot of people said its a "curse"
but i was thinking like
we, a selected few of people, have the ability to vividly come up with stories with characters who feel very real and its going on all the time
i think were like..........really…
So I was sitting at the bus stop when something as innocent as a bus advertisement turned the tide of my daydreams. The ad was for Carolina Performing Arts. What particularly caught my interest was the picture of a violinist, who looks startlingly similar to my main daydream character. It was like someone had literally grabbed him out of my head and put him on the side of a bus (with a…Continue
Maybe not everyone's cup of tea but the lyrics are definitely for MDers.
(the song is "Undo Your Mind" by Eivør)
I'm back. :P
So, basically I just related living with MD to drowning in a deserted ocean with no one there to help. I feel as if I'm drowning in my MD, and everyone in my family doesn't understand the depth and seriousness of my condition. (Not that it's serious, but I do feel like I need help.) I try to address the fact that only medication can stop this, but there isn't any known cure for MD…Continue
So I havent been dd much due to my mind being on my crush. Its way better than laying in bed and dd. I do dd a bit still about him hehe. So I gained the courage to ask him to dance with me at prom and he said yes! I am happy but atthe same ime worried he wasjust being nice. i want to text him or talk to him because I am scared I m a burden on him. It is hard to say sine he is just to kind. What should I do? I want this to work.
I haven't been visiting this site in awhile. I finally managed to publish my first novel as an ebook. It is on a site called smashwords.com, you can find it by doing a search on the author name which is "Veradance". You can download 20% for free so give it a look. The reason I bring it up was this is really the first productive thing I have done with MD. I am close to 60 and have lived with this my whole life, I learned to manage it. I hope to write more and improve with each one. I…Continue
I can't DD right now. I don't know why. My newest characters just aren't going anywhere. They're getting too generic, too hard to manage, if you know what I mean. I miss the old generation of characters! But I don't know, I used them up or something. I now classify most of them as dead. But then again, I've revived characters before. How about you guys? Do you ever stop DDing with old characters, and slowly, over the years, replace them all with new ones?
I was doing great daydreaming, and I gave myself a little time to daydream and I couldn't stop for two days. I blew off my family, barely paid attention to my friends on the last days of school, and almost got ran over because I can't get out my stupid little fantasy.
People say (I have said before) that you should give yourself a set time to daydream but if I do then I can't stop and it's so hard to get back in that motivated mind set for me, once I've…Continue
Didn't do any exercise today, but instead I went shopping and found some nice clothes.
I know I have too many clothes already (whoops...), but I find wearing something new makes me feel better--like I've changed on the inside too somehow, even though I kind of haven't.
When I was trying on the clothes though, there was a voice at the back of my head saying "This next school year will be much better than last year." And I know this isn't the type of thought that…Continue

My DD has stopped for now... Since I have now been running with some friends. Running has tooken DD off my mind and my crush has too. When things are going great I have no desire to DD I just DD here and there about my crush but not about my world which is good but now my happiness is kinda coming undone. I am kinda worried I will be going back to DD. The only reason my happiness is going away is homework stress and my crush haha. So I…Continue
