Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
As some of you know, in early September, I went into acute liver failure, and they also discovered blood clots in my leg and lung. I'm doing better, but it's really scary that I came extremely close to death. I've learned that having had a pulmonary embolism once puts me a much greater risk of having another. When I had it, I didn't recognize the symptoms and almost didn't go to the hospital. I could have died. Please learn the risks and be aware. Many people get them after a long…Continue
After years of thinking I was crazy I finally got to meet people who understand what I am actually going through
I can’t remember when it all started but I was very young in my early childhood. I just wanted to be alone and day dream create my perfect world where I can be a superhero. I would spend hours simultaneous playing all the characters I have created in my mind. Once I had an imaginary boyfriend whom I ended up telling my friends about they never met him coz he never existed…Continue
After, anxiously, waiting for two days for Eli Somer to email me back it finally happened. I asked him could I interview him for my book and he agreed. ONLY ONE CATCH..he'd (Eli Somer himself) would like MDrs who would be willing to help him convince therapists and scientists that the problem exists by taping a few testimonies or Skype interviews with him about their experience. So if you're…Continue

I'm curious of how some of you keep up your relationships (assuming your partner doesn't DD as well?) I know a lot of maladaptive daydreamers don't like to go overseas for holidays and would rather stay at home and DD and how this would affect your family? If this is your situation, or maybe your DD has decreased the amount of time your DD? I'm 16 and just got a bf and am curious for what might happens in your lives.
I don't really feel like writing anything but I'll just write anyway.
I applied for a job online. I worked at this place a few years (!) ago and I'm hoping they give me a chance . It's seasonal work which I think I can handle. The questionnaire did sort of bum me out because they ask lots of questions like are you proud of what you've accomplished and are you satisfied with your life (which I am not) so I had to lie. One of the questions was something like, "Do you day dream…Continue
I tend to forget about these sort of blogs after a while so I'm going to try and write as much as I can before that happens.
I'm not very good at organizing my thoughts and I have problems with my memory so bear with me.
I don't know if I can pinpoint when this started happening. It feels like I've always done it. Maybe it was to run away for a while. My parents never really got along and we've always had problems with money. I can't remember anything specific but I…Continue
I just want all of you to know that you've all been so supportive of me and my book, and it really means a lot! Writing has really helped me make use and build on my MD's and improve my life.
So, in celebration and as a thank you, my book is now officially free on amazon! For the next 5 days, it is 100% free for download on any device (smart phone, computer, tablet, etc.) using the app- --even internationally.
I joined this group more than a month ago but I didn't know what to do once I was accepted. It kept gnawing at the back of my brain but I felt a little embarrassed. I guess I am ashamed at how much day dreaming has taken over my life. It basically is my life at this point. I'm currently unemployed and have dropped out of school. I don't know if it's because of day dreaming or not but there's definitely some connection. When I tried to study I'd end up day dreaming. I could not concentrate.…Continue
This song to me is all about MD. Yes, it is creepy that the guys name is Davey.
The Faint- Mirror Error
Davey thinks he looks just like the face he makes in mirrors
Only once or twice a month does the mirror do him justice?
Every other time he looks a mess
He expects a lot from it but then barely notices…

So over the last 4 years or so I developed an fixation on Lord of the Rings, I started off liking the movies alot but then decided to read the books and got sucked in. It's a great story right up my alley and I am willing to bet money Tolkien was a lot like us. So much detail and history in this immaculate fantasy world he created in his mind. Long chapters of dialogue that make the character's personalities clear to you as they change throughout their individual journeys.
I'm on a roll with blogging today.
Perhaps, it was motivated by the experience I had today. Not only forcing myself to be social and get out and it ending up being one of those RARE positive experiences for me - but also being so off the cuff about MDD... but also perhaps, it was due to pent up frustration from having the lack of privacy at home to DD...but I was motivated to write another huge scene of my DD.
When I was into writing and calling myself a writer ...trying to…Continue
It just popped out of my mouth. As if I was telling her that I was a Gemini and liked long walks on the beach. I mean ...boom. "Yeah, I have Maladaptive Day Dreaming disorder." Like it was nothing. 2nd person I've ever told and I hardly know her.
I had a kid play date with another "crunchy" mom. I cloth diaper and blah blah. Kind of hippie here. Met her through a local mutual interest group on Facebook. She added me and we hit it off. So many similar interests. Both hate being…Continue

I am so thankful that I stumbled upon and joined this network today. I have only recently (about 2 months ago) discovered the term Maladaptive Daydreaming but feel so much better having done so. Finally, I have an answer for what I have been doing for as far back in my childhood as I can remember and know now that I am not alone in doing this.
Now in my 40's, I still daydream daily and am now convinced my 10 year old daughter is daydreaming as well. She has a character that she has…Continue
