Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest

Now I just thought I would quickly update y'all on how my weeks has been so far. I'm no where near dding as much as I use to, just finished writing 50,000 words in a month. Plus I'm going back to my old book worm ways which I stopped doing when I developed my daydream world. I'm so excited, I really am. Plus I'm going to the library this weekend I'll be busy trying to finish the rough draft still and I'm going to try to stop dding as much. I mean I still do some but it is no where…Continue
Hello again. It's been a while.
You remember my imaginary friend, Mary the monkey? The one who I need to unerstand in order to "get the last keys" of the MD labyrinth's exit?
I'll tell you a fairytale I wrote years ago, long before "meeting" Mary. The fairytale of Lupita and her keyholder monkey. (I'll be relatively brief though-it would take days for the exact translation!)
Our story begins with a girl called Lupita.
Lupita lived in a…Continue
Hi I'm "Ari."
I'm pretty new to this. I've been daydreaming for a year and a half now and I'm thinking it's pretty unhealthy where it's going.
Let's start off with some background information: It started around March on my way to church after my father's funeral. Since I'm pretty young and stuff I based my daydreams off of the show Totally Spies with me and these 2 other made up girls. I figured it was an interesting daydream so I continued. I daydreamed…Continue
If your not familiar with my story you are more than welcomed to read my first blog post. This one follows.
After consulting with the counselor she was able to pair me up with a Therapist around my area. I was very excited as well as anxious. For so long I have been trying to stop daydreaming and its taking over my life. The counselor assured me that I could stop daydreaming and that the Therapist would help me. She told me to give the Therapist at least 3 months. Too bad she only…Continue
Is it really so negative to day dream excessively? Don't get me wrong. I know that society has termed it to be a very negative state of being. A state of being where you day dream all the time.... What? Hey son, get your head out of the clouds! *As my Grand Father use to say, especially when he had a chore for me to do.* You can't retrieve the shopping carts at the Wal-Mart very effectively if your head is in the clouds. Nor can…Continue

Hm...well...ever gone on a "break" with your daydreaming? If that would be a correct term for it anyway...I remember when I was younger my mind stopped daydreaming for about one or two months but of course that didn't last...I ended up back in the same pace of daydreaming after that. Thinking about it now though got me wandering if it ever happened to anyone else before. Have you ever had a period when your mind just went blank? Or well, stopped daydreaming? Even…Continue
As I've been reading blog posts (and, yes, I've already sort of touched on this in my Introductions blog post) I've been noticing that a lot of people have been talking about their MD beginning sometime in their teens or young adult years. They talk about when they started doing it and what made them start. As I've already mentioned, though, DDing has been a large and disruptive part of my life since as far back as I can remember. And, according to my parents, it's been happening even before…Continue
I'm sick and tired of waking up several times during the night because my brain expects this time as a designated daydream time. Sure, maybe sometimes I wake up because I'm in an uncomfortable position or something, but at the very least I cannot go back to sleep until I've daydreamed for a few hours.
It probably started when a few times I must have woken myself up, and I used daydreaming to pass the time while I went back to sleep, but not it is habit and I can't handle waking up…Continue
I have a habit of lying to everyone I know. Have I ever talked to you? If so I have probaby lied to you. It can be about anything, insignificant, or crucial. What I just relaized is that I will lie to other people in my daydreams. As weird as that is.
Apart from that in my sleeping dreams I often lie to and argue with the other people in them. It's the strangest thing, I guess after a while lying became normal to me, so now my unconcious considers it normal as well.
Really!? In my dd I am the sexiest thing around. LOL! I don't sleep around in it, I just have a husband who adores me and can't get enough. Ok, maybe that part of dding is a little sad. :( My "real husband" is great but, not so great.
Lately daydreaming is just boring and seem to continue on without a real purpose at all. I honestly have no will or want to continue to daydream away my life. I don't know if it is the medicine that affected me the most or what but I just don't want to anymore.
I decided it's time to trade this curse for a gift, I must earn. As many of you know I wish to be a writer when I grow up and it has been helping and keeping me busy from day dreaming. I have come to conclusion that instead of…Continue
I am 58 years old and here is my story. Ever since I was a young girl around 7 or 8 I used to always pretend that people that I liked and wanted to be with were always around me and talking with me and I with them. I could change the scene to suit my emotions. If I was having a good time with friends and I had to come home after playing and I had to go to bed, I used to keep the vibe going in my head while I listened to music and rocked. I have always envisioned people that I wanted to be…Continue

I just discovered my pattern for my extreme dding: Always during difficult times when my "real life" is going out of sorts. Especially when I am depressed or hurting. This is the one part of my life that I can control. Today I just spent tody day dreaming. ALL DAY........ It felt good and bad at the same time. Good because I was relaxed. Bad because i just wasted a day I could have been out with my kids. Instead I begged off when a friend offered to take us to the…Continue
