Loving What Is

I've found this book by Byron Katie "Loving What Is". I think it is wonderful, especially for us daydreamers, who want to escape from our problems. Byron Katie wants us to see the reality, as it is, without having negative thoughts about it. She uses four questions to find the reality behind the problems. She doesn't want us to ignore the problems, but just to see the facts and the reality. This will lead to a peaceful mind. She says we can only care about our business, so it is important to…

what a revelation.

Since as long as I can remember I've had an "overactive imagination." My parents would chuckle about how I talked myself to sleep my entire childhood.

I always have and only have been able to fall asleep daydreaming. The severity of it comes and goes throughout the years. I have phases and periods of time where it bleeds into my responsibilities. Causes problems. But I go through long periods of time where it isn't a problem. At least not from my perspective.

But I want to talk…

I want to change my characters, but I've become attached. Help?

I used to go on here a lot more, but now I've sort of stopped... And everything keeps getting worse and worse and worse. It's getting to the point where I'd rather just die than have this awful, stupid thing. And it wouldn't be so bad... If I could just quit daydreaming about these two REAL people. Because you can't control real people. Over 2 years ago, the two YouTubers Toby Turner and iJustine broke up (IDK if y'all know them... If you do, you might think this is funny or creepy or weird)...… Continue

9 years.

Today, Septemnber 7th, is a date i always refer back to when reflecting on my life. Ive spent all of my life with MDD. But once i started middle school in 2004, thats when my DDing took a drastic turn. Thats when it became uncontrollable. It was definetly a coming of time in my life. But i feel as if my MDD stunted my growth. I cannot seem to let go of my past. Having MDD feels like having a time machine. I can go back and fix certain things and picture how my life wouldve been different.…

Bummed out.

I made a plan to stop daydreaming all together once school started this fall. I was going to focus on my education and get a job. My plan was a complete fail. I've been pretty stressed out since summer ended and now I'm daydreaming even more. Daydreaming wouldn't be so bad if it didn't use up all my free time and get in the way of my responsibilities. I just feel so bummed out at this point.

What world prefer?

What world prefer, the "reality" or the fantasy?

a Plan to Quit

This post was posted on  my blog on blogger, but I feel like I should cross post it here. I've read a lot of Maladaptive Daydreaming blogs on the internet, and it seems like most people have a two step recovery plan:

  1. Stop themselves from daydreaming from moment to moment
  2. Fix the root cause of the daydreaming, usually by forming or developing their…

I'm back! Medical mystery!

I just got back into the hospital.  I could have died, yet they still don't know what happened.  I remember being in bed and being out of it.  At some point, I realized I'd been in bed for a day and texted that to Michael.  I was freaked out but too out of it to do anything.  I fed the kitties and went back to bed.

Then, I think it was the next day, I was sleeping and got a knock on my door.  It was my friend, Michael, and my apartment manager, Roz.  They looked like they'd…

Bedtime Daydreams

 Does anybody else do this? I daydream SO much before I go to bed, its literally insane! I toss and turn in my bed but my mind is somewhere else, I can't go to sleep! I try to shut my eyes and just forget about it but you know that rush of excitement you get from daydreaming that just shakes your nerves? My head is somewhere else while all I want is to be in bed! I stay up late just tossing and turning, daydreaming my sleep away!

One of my worlds

Hey everyone,

It's been a while since I came on here and posted. I'm kind of bored, and wanted to write down some of my daydream plots. As some of you know, I like to think of myself as a 'technical' DDer. I like to get very in depth with my daydreams, most of which revolve around science and technology. I want to go through one with you, but it's too long for one post. Below is just the first part. After writing this, I realized it was hard to tell what part of my daydream is fiction…

What would I do without MD?

I am 16 years old and I can no longer remember a time where I didn't use daydreaming as a form of escapism. It started when I was really young, as I would use it to help me fall asleep. It then progressed as I got older, when I listen to music - I daydream, when I watch TV or movies - I daydream, when I go to bed or whenever I'm by myself - I daydream. It is a huge part of my life and if I did ever choose to make an attempt to stop, my life would be completely different. 

I don't know…

I Now Look Like My Ideal Me!


Hi, MDers.


I'm Jennifer, and I'm 16 years old. I've been struggling with MD for years.

It's been a while since I posted one of these.

I've been battling medication changes and their gradual, inexplicable, descent into impotency.

My first clue should have been the reemergence of the daydreams.

I'm never quite sure if the daydreams are the saboteur or if they're simply heralding the arrival of the one responsible.

It seems any psychotropic drug I take brings me up and fills me with a sense of hope and anticipation for the realization of my… Continue

BLANK: My novel! Now on Amazon!

Hello! Today my book came out! Its now officially available on amazon!
I have to say that when I started writing about my MD's two years ago, I didn't think it would ever go very far. But now, It makes me happy to see that my MD has produced something I can be proud of. It took a lot to actually focus on my writing, but once I did, it was worth it. :)
