Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Hi all... I have started to write my MD story into a novel, based on the suggestion of one of our WMN friends. The first chapter is up here.
Would like to hear from y'all on it.
The earliest signs of mdd I remember was in my earliest memories. For quite a while, I had believed that I just had imaginary friends, who'd I play with for hours at a time. But now, I believe I recognize signs it wasn't simply an imaginary friend.

have not generated any new input for a long time but I can to realize that my condition could have been a form of self-medication to help me deal with my sleep apea. In my case, I suffered from depression beginning from the third grades, that is also when I can remember the day dreaming. In my case day dreaming was about creating characters, stories and above all relationships that made me happy. Happy enough to create serration, I am sure this was a method of self coping that my body…Continue
