My dark secret

I've often wondered what was wrong with me, why I was different. I would be lost in my fantasies and snap back to reality, suddenly aware and conscious, wondering if others could see my thoughts. I have never told anyone about my daydreaming problem. I felt too embarrassed and scared of what others might think. Would they think I'm crazy? 

I have always been introverted and quiet, somewhat of a loner. I didn't have an easy time during my school years. I was ostracized with no friends.…

Serious Positives and Negatives

Hello! I know I haven't posted here in a while, but so much has been going on that life is crazy. I have two major MD influenced things that have become important, and ones good and ones bad.

My Serious Positive: I've written a book. It's about 200 pages long and a young adult novel named "Blank" that will be available on Amazon soon! Writing has decreased my MD dramatically and given me opportunities! But without MD, I don't think I would enjoy it. Serious Negative: ok, so I've got a… Continue

Meet Eric

I want to tell you about a friend of mine. He's my only friend and his name is Eric. I've known him for about 2 years. There was an immediate connection between us and I felt he understood me like no other. He has taught me so much about life as well as myself. He has guided me and has been there for me during the most difficult times. I can always count on him. He makes me laugh until I cry. He's brought so much joy into my life. He's the most loving and devoted friend I could ever wish… Continue

It's never going to get better.

Hi. So I haven't been on here in a long time. I've met one of my characters since then! It didn't actually do much for me... I just fangirled and left,

But I can't do it anymore. All this, everything about this stupid thing. I can't do it. It's never going to end and I don't understand what I'm supposed to do. I believe in God, (it's fine if you don't, I just want to share something) but I don't understand why He did this to me. My girl character has a boyfriend that she's been… Continue

Characters in your daydreams

Hello everybody! I've been silently observing this website after my first blog post and you guys all seem so nice. I feel like I can say anything and what a wonderful feeling that is. So i'm curious, do you guys have characters that inhabit the world of your daydreams? If so, do you relate to them? For some reason all the characters in my daydreams are male. I actually have a hard time daydreaming about female characters unless it's myself in someway. The male characters I daydream about are…

A b**** 'n' moan blaug poast: SO TENSE AND BLAAGHH!!! D;

Does anyone else feel that the ability to pace, jump, dance or make big movements while dreaming has a massively positive effect on mood, enthusiasm and energy levels?

Last year, while living in a basement room away from people with no windows, I was able to "use" my DD's in a way which was actually beneficial. I'd DD and pace/dance before class and other events to put me in a happier more energetic mood. My internal conversations also made me come up with smart/funny/interesting…

kind gesture

Today, a very nice lady moved out of my apartment building, so I thought I'd share something in her honor.  She actually signed up for this site, but I don't think she comes here anymore.  I didn't know her well.  We'd say "Hi" in passing but not much more than that.  However, many years ago, when I was having a bad day, she did something very sweet.  It was 3 days before Christmas, and I had bought several pairs of fun socks for myself as a treat, when suddenly I lost my wallet.  I looked…

Uncomfortable Socializing

Do many of you feel off beat or awkward in a social environment?  EG bars, wedding receptions, dance balls, etc.  I can't honestly say all those things are my cup of tea.

I've been trying not to post here.

I've been diagnosed with something that causes my daydreams so I've been trying to stay away since I don't have MD, but it's really hard because this was the only place where I could talk to people like me. 

It just sucks. I hate my disorder, but it's the only thing that keeps me happy. It makes me so unhappy and prevents me from having meaningful relationships, but it gives me the most amazing imaginary life. I just hate it so much, but I can't let go of it.

Eye Contact

Does anyone find it incredibly difficult to maintain eye contact when talking to someone?  When ever i have a conversation with someone i think i devote more effort in keeping eye contact than listening.

MY Moment Of TRUTH

It was April 24th of this year, so that is approximately 2 weeks and 3 days. I was at my soon-to-be state university for my interview and enrolment, I decided to take up Bachelor of Science in Psychology(clinical) so to understand myself and everyone else, I decided that I could also use this as a pre-med since most members of my family on my mother's side are in the med field.

But when I got there, and was informed that my course is overloaded so I ended up getting myself… Continue

The Road to Recovery

Hello everyone! I just go ahead and start this. I've had MD all my life and I'm sick of it. Sick of shutting myself up in a room all day pacing the floor and making up insane plots in my head while talking and raving on like a mad woman. So I'm putting a stop to it! Now, before it's too late! I'm quitting cold turkey! I decided that the best way to keep myself on track would be to blog so that I, myself, could see how far I've come (and if I could give or get a little help along the way that… Continue

What's Helping Me (Cont'd)

I've also been reading works by Osho. "The Book of Secrets" in particular. A lot of it sounds like Buddhism, but I think the principles are universal and can apply to anyone of any religion.


More from "The Power of Now"


"The mind, to ensure that it remains in control, seeks continuously to cover up the present moment with past and future, and so, as the vitality and infinite creative potential of Being, which is inseparable from the Now, becomes covered up by…

Hey, has anyone found any medication thats worked? or at least reduced the symptoms of MD.

I have tried Prozac (similar to fluvoxamine) like i saw in the MD study but no luck. =(

My doc put me on Effexor XR and no luck either. Then he added Ritalin, and again nothing....it just made very anxious and hyper.

Im starting to think they are just adding whatever meda they can since they dont have a clue what MD is, even though i showed them the article.

oh, and i… Continue

My First Maladaptive Daydreaming

So I'm 17 now, and I've had MD since I was 11. I knew that there was already something wrong with me when I first started daydreaming UNUSUALLY. I think what first triggered my MD is a chinese movie called So Close, I was so taken by this that I started making a male character to correspond to the female character in real life(but of they're not real, except the actress). I was dribbling a ball, and the plot was they're both actors in reality and they're together, I remember my mom even caught… Continue

Further Detail Of Daydreams

When I'm not reading and trying to find answers for this problem, I usually am playing in my thoughts and it leads me to daydreaming. They usually start off very exciting. It's like turning on the tv to an action movie that is already in progress. I just step in the scenario and off we go...

In real life I'm a female, 24, African American. I'm pretty short and petite. The vast majority of my daydreams are in a male perspective and often at an age much younger than I am. Sometimes,…

What's Helping Me

So, I said I would share parts of The Power Of Now with this community. It's really helping me understand the power of Being and how to guide my own thoughts or be completely free of thinking all together. The reason I feel this is so important is because MD is totally an issue of the mind. For me,  it's a non stop desire to place myself elsewhere, in other peoples shoes, in a more ideal world, in whatever my mind will create. Before going on a mental trip, I have to accept what my mind is…

Curious about controlling MD

I've come across quite a few people on here saying they are working on controlling their daydreams or have mastered controlling them completely. Just wondering how people have gone about doing this? I have tried controlling them myself but I always seem to come back to the exact same place I was before. Any tips/ ideas about how to go about this would be very much appreciated!

Feeling completive...

Hey, everyone,

         So, I’m gonna go on a monologue here. Read if you want!

         I feel like I’m at a critical point in my life. It’s so weird that I have these problems that almost no one could understand or accept. Other people worry about friends and school, or about their family or medical problems, real problems. I have to worry about my own mind.

         I have made so much progress since I started trying to stop my daydreaming in October. I used to…

Sweet relief...

I'm sure this the typical response you see on this website, the sweet relief that comes from knowing you are not alone. It's the truth. I just assumed I was really @#$&*^$ weird. Or crazy, whichever explanation suited my fancy that day. When I was young girl, I would create mythical  kingdoms in my mind and play with  toothbrushes and combs. It was all so real and I enjoyed it immensely.

When I was in 1st grade I created my first "character" or whatever you want to call it. It was…
