The fear of abandonment and how it's affecting me as an MDer

Lately, I've been having daydreams where people I'm close to, abandon me and I'm left all alone.

The dreams involve.

1. The girl I like, who stops talking to me and goes back to her ex and eventually blocks me, for no reason.

2. My closest friends feeling like I'm a burden to them and leaving me.

3. My parents disowning me because I brought shame to the family, due to my slow pace in life and mental health issues.

And then eventually, I become this person…

Does Maladaptive Daydreaming effect memory

Hello i have only recently learned about Maladaptive Daydreaming , as long as i can remember i have done it and its been causing me trouble in my life as early as my teens when people could see me through my curtains because of backing light and i did not know . For years i thought i was just schizophrenic and scared to tell any one. But thats back ground probably not needed for my question except to express that i am incredibly un knowledgeable about this . 

So here is my…

A Delusional Safe Haven

I recently came to the conclusion that I may indeed be a maladaptive daydreamer....

 Books used to be my escape from reality. When I was in middle school and I had a bad day at school I could just read a cheesy teen novel and picture a better reality. Little did I know that my method of escape would soon be the very thing that entrapped me. I think things went downhill when my imagination started to be a crutch I used to deal with life issues. But then again when the places that are…

Love fantasies

Hi all,

I am new to this and came across this site a few days ago. 

I stumbled across a post from another member about love fantasies. 

When I meet a man who is good to me , I too start building up fantasies about the person in my head. I get obsessed over the person.

 I over think /fantasise and make myself fall in love with the person. In addition , I want the person to fall in love with me. 

This lead to a lot of heartache for me. 

I have lived with this…

Love fixation


New member. Does anybody have issues with excessive fantasizing about love interests that you don't really know or are unavailable or celebrities? I'm very embarrassed about this problem because when I get obsessed about them enough and I'm manic (I'm bipolar) I will contact them and humiliate myself. ( Although 3 times it worked and I hooked up with them). I get a high from feeling like they are a soulmate sometimes. I know everybody does this to some degree but I know this level is… Continue

Just a Theory...

Does anyone have any information about/ think anything about weather MD is linked to dissacosiative identity disorder. I kind of feel like in the dreams, you become a tweaked version of yourself and you genuinely feel different. Any thoughts??

Just a Little Query...

I find that listening to upbeat music fuels the MD. Does anyone else find that? Sometimes I find myself listening for hours to a playlist and daydreaming for hours.
