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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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.
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 !
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
