Serious problems

I don‘t know how to handle it anymore. My daydreaming gets worser and worser. 
I often spend up to 16 hours a day just dreaming. Cannot do anything as I should. 
I‘ve looked at the mds 16 scale and I‘m actually at 100% every single question.
My life / daydreams are out of control.…

Effective methods of Controlling MD (subjective)

After several failed attempts to stop my MD, I've come to terms with the fact that I may never be able to get rid of it. In the world today, there is just too much stimulus for me to make a solid attempt at stopping. Especially now that I'm going into a career field wherein I have to sit on a computer most of the day.

I decided to approach it from a different perspective, why don't I try to condition my compulsion into something positive. So, instead of walking around rubbing my hands…

sorry for the google translation

Hello, my name is Aline and I'm new here. I live in Brazil, more specifically in São Paulo, but I am translating this comment because I realized that most people here are not Brazilian (but if you have any reading, I would love to meet you).

So, until a month ago I never imagined that what I have, of imagining another reality would be a problem. In my head when I thought about it I thought that everyone had it and just didn't speak, it never bothered me because it always knew how to… Continue

is it possible to overcome maladaptive daydreaming?

i daydream since i was a kid and I don’t actually remember when it all started and I want to ask people who overcome maladaptive daydreaming how did you do this? and can you say that you overcome this in 100%? Like is it even possible to live a normal live and stop daydreaming all the time?

Hi everyone.

Hi everyone,

I was diagnosed with social anxiety several years ago. It’s a condition I’ve had since before I started school. As a result, I’ve found it difficult to make friends and have meaningful relationships and experience life fully in general.

I had two best friends when I was in elementary school. We were inseparable. However, in fourth grade we kind of somehow went our separate ways. They started hanging out with other people while I was left alone.

I think…

Hello

Well, I’m going to identify myself as a G, because I don’t really like my name and it’s big. And sorry for the English, I’m from Brazil and have some difficulties in this language. I just wanted to ... well, say hello. I discovered this forum this week and MD a few weeks ago. Before I thought I was crazy, a freak, something unsolved. I’ve done a lot of research into any similar condition in psychology, but I don’t think I’ve expressed myself well. I do this because I understand myself…

For all my daydreamers, I beg you, do something creative.

For all my daydreamers, I beg you, do something creative.

By doing I mean dedicate your life, or half while you make a living in some job, to make something with your hands or body. You spend so much time in your mind, in a land filled with adventure and conflict, all the emotions you feel trapped in a character that is you-enough to feel. This, right there, is perfect warm fertile ground for art to be born.

What is art but the caption of human emotions and beauty. The beauty…

Hello

Just an introduction really 

I have been addicted to fantasy and daydreaming since around the age of 6. 

I never realised so many people have similar kinds of experiences. I am prone to pacing around, muttering to myself, gesturing with my arms, lost in fantasy and reverie, with often very detailed and elaborate fantasies about situations or people playing out in my head. 

I think it all started seemingly harmlessly enough - I would imitate scenes from films and…

Today´s daydreams

Hello People,

i will tell you about the content of my daydreams, because I believe it would help me to do so. I also have been writing them down and it is extremely embarassing to me. I would apprechiate any comments on what I need to improve in my life to reduce my daydreaming.

To preface this daydream, it is especially dumb and racist if you hate me for it you are right to do so.

I am sitting at a table in a restaurant with a band (i am a musician irl…

Hi, I'm new here

Hi, since as young as I can remember I've always been able to fully immerse myself in different worlds of my own with little to no effort at all.



Within the blink of an eye I can make up whole stories from the top of my head with plots and characters and places, the whole nine yards. I've always been able to do that, I don't remember ever having to struggle to imagine anything.



I'm Autistic and as a kid growing up in a world I didn't understand I enjoyed creating worlds in… Continue

Compulsive DAYMARES anybody?

Hi all, 

I want to tell you about my experience with MD, because I don't recognize myself in most accounts of it, and I want to see if someone else can relate with my own account.

First difference between my experience and the descriptions I find online: the content of my daydreams is NOT positive. It's always negative. I call them "daymares": plots usually involve a loved person dying, or me or someone else being sick, and other catastrophes of some type. It's…
