Renovating My Life

Warning : This will be a very long post but please bear with it.

I have had MD since I was 8 ( or maybe younger I don't really remember) My journey of recovery can be described in 3 stages.

1) The first stage : This is when I knew I was MDing and also knew that it is causing a lots of problems in my social and academic life. I wanted to stop doing it but did not know how to. So I used to think that once I fulfill all my wishes then my MD would be over. Because my innocent mind…

People whose vibe and nature we've wanted to emulate in our MD world (if any)

Have any of you ever had a person in mind whose vibe or style you've wanted to emulate so much that you end up integrating that vibe into your MD world self? It can be either a celebrity or just any person in your life, whose cool nature we feel like imitating. For me, recently, I've wanted to have the swagger and the attitude of a Pakistani Singer named Imran Khan whom I listen too quite often. He has this really cool confidence which I've always wanted. Do you have anyone like that?

Friends are not from Dreams

I spent my whole life looking forward to friends and relationships, and this actually could've happened, if I wasn't living on another planet. When I was a kid, I used to ponder around my room and other parts of the house, imagining situations of how I could meet young people in my area. I'd stand in our shady family office, looking at drawings and poetry, wishing that friends would suddenly pop out of nowhere and say hi. All I had to do was talk to my classmates, get their phone…

The link between (the secret) book by rhonda byrne and the MD

Hey, I always spent a lot of time on md, reading books, listening to music while staring for a long time at pinterest pictures, but when I thought at the beginning of that, I remembered a part in the book of the secret that says, "If you want something you have to imagine that you have it in the future and work." Accordingly. " Doesn't this support daydreaming??! Also, I want to communicate with people for the same experience in order to support each other, if you want, this is my account on… Continue

An example of what others see when we MD

This video shows exactly what we do when we MD. Lot of times, my mum and brother have caught me in this stage. Lot of other videos too in this channel about MD. Worth checking it out, y'all.

I'm struggling to process but happy to be here! (UK)

[Trigger warning: mentions sexual abuse].

Hello lovely people! It's so great to meet you all.

I found out I had MD last night, despite having it all my life. I had a very intense reaction as so many things made sense suddenly, but it is also validating because now I know for sure that I'm not making up any of my problems, going "crazy" etc. And I am so grateful to know that I am not alone anymore. 

But I am finding it very difficult dealing with the knowledge that MD is…

Look how far we've come!!!

I've found this video of a therapist talking about MD! I hope it helps!

Slipping back ... ?

Lately I've been falling back into my old habits with MD... I thought I had gotten over it, but the way school has going and the fact that I recently made some OCs that are always on my mind isn't exactly helping... I can't say for sure if it will be as bad as it as before (I can't remember large swathes of the period of time when my MD was at its worst) but I'd rather not return to it at all. I find myself zoning out in class into the new universe in my head, and my grades are suffering…

My experience so far with MD

For me, it's mostly focused on better versions of me with input taken from real life as well as parts of who I actually am.

Eg: 2 to 3 years ago, My daydreams were focused on a version of me who's a successful E-sports player and lives independent, very physically fit and good at dating. Now it's more focused on dream scenarios involving a certain lady I've had feelings for. And real life incidents have added to the daydreams. Eg: a friend's marriage in real life led me to imagine… Continue

In a Maze

When I was doing MD, I thought it was awesome. It lulled me into complacency and I'd spend hours staring away into a fuge, with glowing hopes things will eventually go my way. Unfortunately, it dug me into a deeper hole. Nobody knew my satisfaction as I have, but they didn't understand why my eyes had a distant stare, why I moved funny, didn't talk much and why I almost wasn't ever listening. It clearly proved to them that I was in another world. To myself, I believed I can do…

Putting myself in one's shoes

I tend to be inspired by people from movies and TV series, and often wish I had their lives and personas. I know  for sure that I'm not those characters. I don't have their skill sets, minds, looks and their coolness. I work remotely at home, and it can be very boring, so sometimes I imagine myself as a doctor or computer programmer in a science fiction action film. 

Sometimes when I get out there and do what I like, it's still a challenge, because I'm an extremely quiet…

help me understand my MD

so mostly in my mds the characters are me or bollywood version of me, and all the people i know. they are just sort of watching everything that is happening. mostly they are people with whom i have recently tackled except my ex of course! like the ones i recently met or the ones i had a conversation with online. things like there...(so let me call these people plus-people, with whom i tackled lately or something happened with them )

daydreaming block?

I wonder if anyone else with MD struggles with this, too, but sometimes I have trouble finding something to think about. Like how an artist has an art block. Majority of the time I can easily find a story to entertain me, and when I do I'll often spend hours daydreaming just about it, and sometimes I'll even continue it for days or even weeks afterwards. But every now and again I just feel kind of drained where I can't think of anything. I still have this, kinda like an intense urge, to go…

Why I stopped

I used to think MD was cool. Kind of like when someone smokes. I was a young kid, and didn't know what harm MD can actually do. I did believe that MD was assuring me that life will get better and adventurous, at that. So I looked forward to experiencing an amazing life. What I didn't realize is that MD was lying to me the whole time. It didn't promise anything of the sort. It was just a sequence of entertaining stories in my head that kept me going. I have noticed while I was doing…

Looking for a study/work partner who is in the same boat as I am!

I have been daydreaming ever since I was a kid- different fantacies at different stages in life. Ultimately this impacted my social life, my observation skills, my personality and my studies. I did manage to score good marks, but I alone know how much I struggled to focus. I have discussed this with my family, but no one seemed to take this seriously.

I have often felt alone, felt like I was the only one with this issue. I was surprised to learn that there are so many sailing on this…

Does you feel like you're not maturing correctly because of MD?

Hi everyone, how are you all doing ??

Today I was thinking about how my MD condition interrupts me strongly in my "maturing". I feel like it blocks me from doing work and other "real life" responsabilities. Almost as if it'll keep me in an infantile behavior for so long and I just cant break free from this...

I dont trust myself anymore because all my doings are interrupted by Daydream, out of my control...

And I feel so bad to be like this, I dont produce, I'm a adult and I wish… Continue

What do "normal" people think about?

Hey all, like so many of you, I've been working on stopping daydreaming. But one obstacle I've found is I don't know what thoughts are considered "normal".
Like, when I'm busy it's not always easy, but its easier, to not daydream. But what do people who don't daydream do when they have nothing to do?
What happens in their head while they are waiting in a queue or stuck in traffic?

Added by Liz on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm — 3 Comments

How do I stop that

im Daydreaming between 3 up to 6 hours a day. I dont even know when this all started. I always did that and thought it would be normal and now I realised that it isn't. I cant have a normal conversation, without asking twice what they saying. I am struggling to learn for exams or even my final exam in a month and a half.I always get distracted by my own world and I dont know how to escape.
