Where wild minds come to rest
I was curious to see if there is a correlation between personality types and MD. I have had MD for as long as I can remember. But I am also an INFP- which an introverted idealist. What personality type are you? And are you an introvert or an extrovert? Just wanted to see if there was any correlation
This is my first day trying to blog each day. Ironically enough, I thoroughly enjoy writing and have tried to blog before. Clearly unsuccessfully in the blogging department. After finding this site though I feel less alone. I feel as if there are people out there who understand what I am going through and can possibly help me to learn how to cope. I am very excited to begin this new chapter, or I should say newest chapter of my life. Yesterday was extremely emotional for me. I had to say…Continue

As a fellow person with MD, I know how vivid the fantasies can be; I also know that some people cope with their struggle through a variety of art mediums. As a project, I was intending to create an online art gallery to exhibit some of it. For anyone who is gifted artistically, and has a voice they would like to share, feel free to share your work with me. So far, this is in the planning stage (I don't know how far I'm going to take it yet), but I'd like to see if anyone is interested in it.…Continue
Probably a day or so ago i actually discovered the term "Maladaptive Daydreaming". When i googled it i was so shocked at how the description matched what i've been going through for about 7 years now. My main trigger is music. I pace in my room every day for hours listening to music and my mind going to another place. Until the other day before i finally talked to my mom about it, i thought that most of my family just assumed that i was dancing to music in my room, but it turns out that my…Continue
Damn. I've been dealing with MD since I was prepubescent and it's only on my 18th july 5th that I learn how my issue is called and that there's a whole community built for it. Despite how disappointed I am by the apparent weakness of my google-fu, more than anything, I am relieved. Worse yet, happy! Happy to have found people I can relate to.
The fact that y'all are all here, talking, sharing your experience, existing and stuff? It makes me happy. So thank you.
Hi everyone, it's been a while. Something weird has happened to me and I have been debating whether or not to post about it. But I think this is important since so many of us are hoping for a cure for MD or at least to know what it's like for it to stop. This has just been my experience and I'm sure someone else may have a totally different story. I don't want to give the impression that it's better to have MD than to be free of it! I am not taking any sort of drug or…Continue
At first glance, I may not seem like a real person. I am. I am oursecretstories. I run the tumblr blog: oursecretstories (http://oursecretstories.tumblr.com/) The purpose of this blog is to create a confidential and anonymous (if you choose) environment for those who wish to talk about the daydreams specifically. You can talk about characters, tendencies, themes, as well as a variety of other things. I've even been collecting songs that…Continue

I'm new to this site and not really sure how i works yet. I've had md for the past ten years and it seemed to take over my life completly more or less straight away. I thought I was the only person in the world who had this problem. I find that music triggers me to dd. when i first started doing it i felt it was the only way i could keep my sanity and that when things got better in my real life I would be able to just stop. However that was not te case ,ten years down the line i…Continue
I've had romantic daydreams about idealized crushes for years. When I'm in an intense romantic DD, it can feel incredibly real. When I'm lounging around or lying in bed I'll imagine cuddling with an imaginary lover, gazing into each others' eyes, kissing or whispering sweet nothings and it's like I can really feel him there. It's like I can almost physically sense his love for me and mine for him. And those types of DDs leave me wondering, is that what love is supposed to feel like in real…Continue
I apologize if this is personal for a few of you but I was wondering what some of your dating lives are like? This has been on my mind recently because I've been going to a lot of family gatherings and it is always the same thing.. everyone shows up with their significant other at the time, even my cousins that are younger than me. As far as my aunts and uncles/grandparents are aware of I have never been in a relationship.
The thing is, I am almost twenty years old and I have…
