Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I just had the most moving DD tonight.
I have been getting really into the drug DMT...not taking it just yet, but learning a lot about it. It is known as the queen mother of all psychedelic drugs....the possibilities of what you will "hallucinate" during the 5 minute trip are endless...you could experience god, your own death, that sort of thing. It's not a party drug. ;)
My alter-me just got finished telling another character the recent recap of when she took…Continue
I've just joined this site, and I am so much more relaxed knowing that other people have the same situation as me. As of today I've decided to stop daydreaming (I hope). Its put me into some pretty deep depression and has made my family worry about me. It got to the point where I was daydreaming for hours on end. In the past year I have lowered it to about an hour a day. But today I am deciding to quit and when I do (hopefully) I wanna share my expieriences with others and maybe help them…Continue
Oh imagination, imagination
You have been there so much for me
You make me forget reality
You make me feel at peace
You make me think I am well
Soon before I know, u took over
I see myself slipping away
I see my shadow sitting going no where
I see what I could become, but not be
I thought I hated you
For once I did
I hated you so much
I wanted to eradicate you
Gosh, how I…Continue
First of all, thanks a lot to Cordellia Amethyste Rose for creating this website. It has given me a lot of
courage to finally know what was different about me and that there are more people like me somewhere else.
I've had MD at least since I was 12 years old and now I feel my entire life is on debris: I've yet to finish my studies, almost no work experience, very few (real) friends and need economic help from my parents. While it is true that a great deal of these troubles are…Continue
I constantly want to express my daydreams. The only problem is, i have no way to express them. My only medium is writing, so i came up with an idea.... a book! Why not make q book of our short storys (all about various daydreams)
as i mentioned in a previous blog post, i pace. my pacing often causes many injuries/accidents, but i can't stop.
about twenty minutes ago, i was pacing when i ran into the wall, and a picture frame fell off the wall. there was glass everywhere.
three weeks ago, i was pacing when i ran into a decorative plate that was hanging on the wall, and it shattered to…Continue
How many times did I stop myself? How many times did I tell myself this isn’t real? Again and again I tell myself this isn’t real—all in your head.Parting with my imagination was like an addiction. I didn’t want to come out, but I know I couldn’t stay here.
I know they weren’t all real, but I wanted to live the illusion. I feel a dull fake euphoria in this imagination and every time I know it was all faked. It was so easy and so safe—yet so lonely. And so that is why I…Continue

Well, just a few days ago at my doctor's visit I was diagnosed with another mental illness, bipolar disorder. I also have ADHD and anxiety/ depression. At this point I feel just all messed up, this is too much. I feel like a mistake.. but anyway does anyone else here also suffer from bipolar as well and does it affect your md in any extra way?
I just wanted to warn everyone about the spammers. If anyone emails you asking to know more about you and telling you to email them back DON'T DO IT!!! These people are not real, their sob stories are designed to make you feel bad and email them again and after a couple of emails they will ask for your bank account details. Whether they ask for you to send them to their bank so that they can send you money or anything else, they are lying. As long as you stop emailing them you should be…Continue
It all feels like too much. I'm so exhausted, and scared. And i still don't have many answers. Not only is my head a total basket case, my physical body seems to be as well. I don't know how many bizarre, and uncommon and rare things i have going on with me. Mostly because, no one can tell me for sure what the actual problem is.
I personally feel, that most diagnosis are being over diagnosed. Bi polar, depression, ADD....it seems as though whenever someone has a problem, call…Continue
First of all, a big thanks to Aaron Wolfie who told me about this condition. Once I Googled it and read about it, I immediately saw how well it fit me. I have almost every symptom. There are lots of sites with information about it. Here's one: http://www.dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk/dyspraxia-adults/
There are a lot of symptoms, and I'm not good at summarizing things, but it's essentially people who, from…Continue
Another ranty post I'm afraid :(. So my mum gets in with a load of shopping and despite the situation being so predictable I offer to help out with putting the stuff away. I knew I'd just end up getting under my mums feet. She said "yes please that would be lovely" so I help her put some boxes of cereal away and some in the cupboards had little bits left in there. Trying to show a little bit of initiative I start trying to ask my mum whether anyone would eat the last bits of cereal. All of a…Continue
does anyone suffer from both as well ?
I know everybody gets their heart broken at some point in their life. I always thought people exaggerated the pain but if anything they undersold it. This is the worst grief I have ever felt. I go through the day and just realize I have tears going down my face and I don't even notice it, it's embarrassing. I was so happy and now it's gone, and everytime I think about it I just wanna scream. And the only thing that helps me feel better is daydreaming. But I don't want to do that…Continue
so im thinking about telling my parents about my daydreaming problem, maybe they could help
but im afraid they will think their daughter's an insane and crazy and have mental issues (which might be true but still ) or just laugh at me
has anyone here told someone about it? how did they react? did it feel good to tell someone or not?
did it help?
I identify as an introvert. More recently I started to wonder if I may also have Aspergers. I never used to use that word, but would always describe myself with many of its characteristics. Now I have never been diagnosed, so lets just say that I identify with many of the characteristics.
Except one. FOCUS. Introverts and aspies are often described as having intense focus and incredible attention to detail. Actually,…Continue
-i see a lot of people here saying that they daydream about literally fictional stories, like imaginary creatures and stuff, but my daydreams consist of me in the future, like a better version of myself, and how i would like myself to be a few years from now or even how am i gonna act at an event that i have the next day, does anyone here have the same kind of daydreams?
and im wondering which is worse, having daydreams about an idealized version of yourself, or having daydreams…Continue
