Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Sorry, I'm annoyed.
This might be slightly contradictory, because, my god, I don't suffer from MD as much as others here do.
So please please don't take this post into consideration if you suffer from MD really badly.
But I've noticed that from this forum that a lot of people here take the attitude that they simply can't function day to day with MD. They stay in, have no social life and basically have a dormant life.
Why? Is it…Continue
I'm 27 and don't have a driving license... when all my peers got theirs at 18, I was busy with my mind...
In the new spirit of taking charge of my life and flourishing with MD, I've signed up for an intensive class. In the past whenever faced with a challenge that would require planning ahead+concentrating and studying, it would basically…Continue
Today was scary. It was one of those rare but intense daydreaming days for me. I spent 15 hours lying in bed, sleeping and daydreaming. The only thing I ate was a small sandwich at 5pm. I didn't even want to eat. I looked as if I had all the symptoms of depression, except that I was having an extremely delightful time in my head. I’m glad I’m not like this all the time, but it truly scares me afterwards. Am I the only one who has daydreamed to this extreme?

I never thought of myself as really being THAT affected by MD, after all, i function can hold down a job, I'm very well liked, people look up to me, ...Now I am all of these things...so I've overcome right? Naaaah not really.
Me personally I dont believe in regrets, so I'm so grateful for my MD, if not for it I dont know what the hell I would have done. I was so damned lonely I may have offed myself if I didnt have my little world to escape too, where everything was alright,…Continue
Hey my names Elle, I'm 18, and like most of you i've being daydreaming since is was young. It'so good to be able to talk to other people about this, so i have a few questions :)
1) I'm now in my final year of school with my last exams 3 weeks away and was wondering if MD affects anyones ability to concentrate and study?
2) Do you find MD has affected your social life? I have a big group of friends and love social events but after a few hours i find myself making up excuses so…Continue

The deepest thoughts penetrate my mind when I’m immersed in myself, listening to notes that pluck the strings of my moods, stirring the taste buds of my mind. I think of death, Nick, and that girl when certain soft sounds reach my ears. I spin in the darkness as my mind reaches out to the untouchable place where they are. I wonder at the impossible as my emotions tangle with the music and my mind drowns in thoughts that aren’t speakable. I long for Koni Latu’s presence as I sink to the…Continue

I have been dreaming about my own worlds and coming up with characters and plots for as long as I can remember. When I was in primary school I loved engaging in role play and fantasy with other kids. We all had our own imaginary worlds and would freely share our stories with each other. Most of them grew out of it, but I remember one friend who still worked on her world when she was a teenager. She also wrote short stories. I don´t know if her world is still "active". Although we are very…Continue

Oh boy.....I have waited for years and now there is a name associated with this behavior! I "rocked" and listened to music for YEARS! Since I can remember...all the way until I was 31. I am 44 now. I need to understand what took over my life for such a long period of time.
As long as I can remember, I could rock back and forth and get lost in whatever music I felt like listening that day. It was something I HAD to do! Before work, at least one hour was set aside to…Continue
have you ever come up with a new character and daydreamed about them so much that it starts to seem like they're the new main character even though they're not and you don't want them to be so you try to keep yourself from daydreaming about that character because you're afraid that they'll become the new main character which you don't want to happen?
^ wow, run-on sentence xD
but that's been happening to me lately... -_-
it's happened to me before, and when that happened…Continue
Let me introduce myself as Jessy. I have had MD ever since I was about six years old, when it all began with the likes of cheesy Hollywood movies, Sailormoon, and Power Rangers. I am not one who would imagine it all inside the head only - I would always act out my daydreams, incorporate every gesture and move I make into what I would experience in them. To do this I always paced, ran, jumped, and even voiced all of my characters and made sound effects. All of this had always made daydreaming…Continue
I am so happy because I just figured out that I'm not totally crazy. Maybe a little, but that is ok by me.
My name is Kristen, I'm 19, and I just learned about MD today! I've looked online before for evidience that I wasn't the only one that paces their room pretending to go to hogwarts. haha that sounds super weird. I really thought I had a mild case of Schizophrenia, but I don't, so that is good. Now I've found a community of freindly people that don't think I'm a freak for doing…Continue
Holy mackerel, I haven't been on this site in a while! I've kind of been a bit swamped with school, for starters, but many interesting things have been happening lately. I figured I'd share some of my latest experiences with all of you, since a number of them have to do with my MD.
I took a rather risky leap of faith in my writing class, specifically regarding the topic I chose for our first paper. Our professor started us off with a simple assignment: we had to write one…Continue
