Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
This post is really just for me, but I think it is important that I write it. It has to do with my life in general, not just MD.
Lately, I have been thinking about how different my life is now from how it was even a year or two ago. While I still DD, and it affects my life in a big way, I think it is important to look at all of the progress that I have made.
I have been daydreaming for as long as I can remember. For a period of time, in middle and early high school, it became…Continue
A few weeks a young lady made comments about me that really hurt me and are the main reason I think I started daydreaming in the first place.
She says “we (her and the other three girls) are sometimes excited, we get angry we get irritable but you…you are always (she tries to find the right words…moving her hand horizontally across the air like a flat plane), you are always neutral.” She explains what she means. Throughout this I want to start crying. I know what…Continue
i have a difficult time visualizing my characters, so when i decided i wanted to attempt a series of novels, i knew i needed visuals. please message me the drawings or post them here for all to see. i will include a photo (if the character is based on a real person), a description, and a personality profile.

I have written a new blog post on my music blog where I attempt to clarify my understanding of how (and why) music acts on daydreams.
The full post is at http://whatismusic.info/blog/MusicTheThirdReality.html, but I can summarize the essential points that would be of most interest to all the day-dreamers here:

So my dog died last night while we were stopping by a family member's house to let their dogs outside. We came home to learn she had suffocated, and all attempts to resuscitate her had failed. There are only a few things on Earth that are precious to me, and she was one of them. Now, I suppose she's not much different from my dream characters - alive in my thoughts and memories, but out of reach.
It's going to be rough for a while, but I know it was a freak accident…Continue
Hi friends well our problem is that we cant control our mind .If we are able to control our stream of thoughts we control our mind and if control our mind we control our life.

Vipassana meditation was the technique of meditation.In this we are taught how to control our thought and become more focused in our life.The vipassana mediation camp which i attended it was free of cost. You will be given…Continue

Time to catch my breath before it all starts over, and maybe a chance for progress on my path of stumbling blocks.
The issue of disconnecting from Nyre was gradual. I can't point at one specific event as the cause. Rather, things here and there that drove up stress on either side seemed to contribute.
When no one knew about Nyre - not even Autumn - the connection was crystal clear. I suppose something similar happened when she found out. Her…Continue

I've been dreaming for most of my life on both sides. I've come to consider my dream world Nyre "home" and this Earth secondary. I have friends on the other side I've kept for twenty years. It's hard for reality to compare.
Right now, I'm going through a period of personal stress that brings nightmares when I sleep and hazy, unfocused daydreams. It makes proper communication with those on the other side a challenge. That's not to say I daydream any less as a result;…Continue

I have figured out something that really helps me when I start to drift off especially when im doing something important. Whenever I feel myself starting to daydream I count to 5 in my head to end the daydream. I say in my head "OK you're daydreaming but its not healthy so by the end of these 5 seconds you'll carry about your day". Its really been working with me so I just wanted to share it!! Have a food day everyone :)
