Saying goodbye

"Saying goodbye, why is it sad? Makes us remember the good times we've had. Much more to say, foolish to try. It's time for saying goodbye."

I called all my characters in front of me, and I told them goodbye. I told them that though they'd inspired me, mentored me, taught me, loved me, and even challenged me, it was time for me to move on - to try living in the real world. I knew some of them were proud of me, and some - especially the boyfriend - were sad.

I even charged… Continue

Trying To Figure Out How This Started

I've been looking through some of the other blogs on here and then I got to thinking of how/when DD came in to my life.  I never had any traumatic experiences and my home life was pretty good growing up.   I didn't really remember having DD's often during high school.  Maybe  at that time in my life, between going to school and school activities and working part time, I just didn't have the time or energy to DD.  

I don't think my DD's really started to become vivid until I was about…

Worst year of DDing! Really struggling now.

Ok so I'm 29 and been DDing for as long as I can remember. I've always been able to keep it under control most of the time, so that it doesn't interfere with my daily life. Il just do it in an evening when I go to bed.

As I've got older iv been doing it more and more, taking myself to my bedroom during the day, closing the door and DDing. But even then I was still able to work full time and have a social life.

Over the past few years it has become more and more intense,… Continue

It didn't start on its own

I've read many MDer's stories on when and how it all started for them and many have no reason why. For years I wondered why I started my MD world and looking back I've come to realize it was because of my mum. She has Borderline Personality Disorder which included her suffering from severe paranoia. I wasn't allowed out much because she was scared of the outside world and kept me in and as close as possible. I'm an only child by the way, so she was very over protective. I developed a fear of…

We can't escape it.

I've read things where people talk about what happens when they stop daydreaming. Is there anyone who just CAN'T stop? Even if I really try, I can't do it. I DD constantly, and no matter what I do, I can't stop, not ever for seconds. When I'm talking to someone, I still do it in the back of my head. I have read this is just like any other addiction, but I don't think so at all. For example, an alcoholic cannot drink if there is not any alcohol to consume, obviously, but we always have our… Continue

An Unhealthy Addiction?

I sometimes find myself putting off school work or dreading going to work because all I want to do is cuddle up in bed and daydream. Even when I'm falling asleep, I go into my "other" life and I'm in bed with my "husband" and he's holding me. Sometimes I think it's unhealthy because like I said, I procrastinate and hate going to work because I can't spend time in my "other" world if I'm doing school work or at work.

I remember when I was in Elementary school and high school, I…

There are people like me out there? ;-)

Wow.  I am not alone apparently.  I have been living and reliving fantasy lives in my head for over forty years.  Amazing that I am not alone as all these years I've thought that I'm just crazy and no one knows about it!  I started a blog to sort of journal my journey of change.  If anyone wants to read it, it's at www.mymendingwall.com.

I'm not sure that daydreaming is really a good term for this.  Daydreaming sounds so simple, so…

My story x

I can't express how good it is to know I'm not alone with MD. I only a couple of days ago found a name for my excessive daydreaming.

I started daydreaming a lot when I was about 8 years old, acting out things from books, off the TV and what I saw in everyday life. I couldn't go to sleep at night without day dreaming for at least 2 hours, and it's still the same for me…

Not sure what Im coping with.

Hi I had an account on here a year ago or so, but I forgot the email address associated with it, so here I am again.

I've been maladaptive day dreaming for as long as I can remember. A lot of people start doing it to distract themselves from bad things, the thing is nothing bad has ever happend to me. My life is peaches  and roses. (That's probably not a reall saying is it..)

And in addition to the whole daydreaming thing, Im also Bulimic, I self-harm, and I have issues with…

Weakness and insecurity.

Hey y'all, haven't been on in a looong time, hope everyone's doing great. :) Some ups & downs here, but that's life.

Well, lately I've been trying to make sense of my daydreams. As in 'why am I daydreaming about this?' I guess looking for the feelings hidden beneath the fantasy. Because my whole life that's how I've handled my feelings.

Sometimes I daydream simply because I'm bored. Bad habit, but I'm working on it.

But a lot of times, I daydream because like I… Continue

New members- wanted to let you know about the MD radio show

Seems like allot of new members so I wanted to let you all know about the MD radio show on every Sat @ 3pm est. The old shows can be listened to from the show page as well. It is a light discussion about maladaptive daydreaming and living with it. We try to go over recent articles and any new research or resources. Would love to have you join us.

Do you find that as an MD'er you have more vivid and creative night dreams as well ?

 This is something I've noticed. I have far more unusual and vivid sleeping dreams than most people do. I'm wondering if other MD'ers do as well ? Perhaps because of the MD, we are stretching our brain ...muscles...LOL and it gives our subconscious a stronger pallette.


  I also find myself looking very eagerly toward bedtime. My night dreams break the patterns of my daydreams and I never know what to expect but am always sure it will be entertaining !

Do you DD about regular scenarios?

Dream Weaver

I found this site through a Yahoo article.

I've been a dreamer since my early school years.  My childhood wasn't the best, but it wasn't the worst childhood. My mother could build you up one minute and tear you down the next moment.  My father was a workaholic.  My brother escaped to his friend's home.  I escaped to my room reading books and living in a dream world.  My family was four people that lived under the same roof.

My daydreams were not magical fantasy…

Just telling my dream

Today I dreamed about the new form of transportation, it called a dimension gate. Everyone can use it as an alternative way of transportation , you just jump into the dimension gate and it will warp you to another dimension gate that be around your destination. The gates are not at specific place such as beside the bridge that you have to get out of a car and jump off the bridge to get into the gate that  invisible but everyone  knows  it's there (What  an ordinary weird). The dimension that…

Anyone DD about other people?

I never daydream about myself. I don't find it interesting. I have daydreamed about other people forever. I like to, though. One of the people I daydream about, I pretend is from my town, though, and I used to have someone made up in my head who had my same friends, but a completely different look and life. I never thought of her as myself. Does anyone else do this?

If you could would you?

If you could live in your dd world would you?

I often imagine drifting away from this world and going into mine.

This Website Helps

I just wanted to say that since I found this website (actually thanks to Yahoo. Yahoo actually posted something worth it.), I've felt better about myself.

I never knew of anyone who had this condition and I didn't even think it had a name. I just thought I was insane. I even thought about going to therapy because of it (although I don't have enough money to do that.) Know that there is other people out there with this same condition and being able to talk to people about…

Torturing myself through MD. How to stop?

Hello to you all. I'm glad I found this website and wonder if you can help me out?

I have been a daydreamer as long as I can remember. I went through many different DDs, which were inspired by many sources. Now, my DDs changed to a downright abusive hell. I don't know what is to blame. Perhaps returning to work from 2 weeks long vacation (spent with my head in the clouds - again) and not being able to fall in yet.

My MD consist of many characters of the different backgrounds…
