A Few Things I'm Thankful For (Belated Thanksgiving Blog Post)

Hi everybody! I've been on this site a lot lately, but it's been a while since I made an actual blog post. This blog post is intended for me to belatedly express my gratitude.



I have a lot to be thankful for. We all do, actually. But seeing as you've probably heard lots of rants about about food and water and "roofs over our heads" from relatives over Thanksgiving--believe me, I did--and I'm assuming you probably don't want to hear another one (not that we shouldn't be grateful for… Continue

Rather sad

The story in my mind right now is, in my opinion, one of the coolest stories ever. Which makes sense. It was designed specifically for me to enjoy. While I daydream, there is a small part of me that is simultaneously fangirling.



I've thought about writing my daydreams down, but they're WAYYYY too complicated, and contain tons of characters from books and TV shows that already exist (and would be difficult to disguise as original characters). Changing that would ruin the story for me,… Continue

My crazy daydream

I used to have like, 20 daydreams, but they were all very shallow (and I kind of outgrew then) so they got boring and I got rid of them. Then I found a new daydream. I like it so much that I don't really have any other daydreams because I don't think they would be as good as this one. The new daydream is a combination of all the best parts of my old daydreams, plus some brand-new stuff. In my daydream, my character is me but a different species (we'll get to that later). My character lives in a… Continue

Maladaptive Daydreaming and Being Injured

I injured myself yesterday during gym class. I dislocated my knee. It popped back in right away, but in the process of popping out and then in I probably injured a ligament. This has happened before, but the doctor thinks that this time I probably injured a different ligament and might have chipped my bone. I had to go home early and go to the hospital. Today during school it was actually hard for me to daydream. Probably because adapting to being on crutches takes a lot of attention. I got an… Continue

So I told my parents about my Maladaptive Daydreaming, and...

It actually went okay! :-D Surprisingly, they believed me right away. I explained it to them and they understood (not at first, but I'm pretty sure they understand now). They said it's okay that I don't want to be cured yet and that I should set goals for myself such as paying more attention to people, etc. I didn't tell them about my friends knowing I have it, though. I'm really glad I told them. I feel so much better now. Thanks for all the support guys :-D

I'm Telling My Parents

I'm going to tell my parents about my maladaptive daydreaming tomorrow evening. I was planning on telling them tonight, but my dad wasn't home tonight, and I want to tell both of them together. I don't want to keep a secret this big from them. Plus I told some of my friends, and I don't think it would be right for my friends to know and not my parents. I found some really good articles on Maladaptive Daydreaming that I printed out to show them. Please share any advice you have about telling… Continue

3 possible reasons for me having MDD

My bad childhood: Okay, so I wasn't exactly abused or anything. I guess things could have been worse. But my childhood was still awful. About half of my memories are of disappointment, loneliness, stress, my parents arguing, and being bullied.



Needing a creative outlet: I was (and still am) VERY creative. I also have an extremely powerful imagination. Most of my daydreams are of things that could never be accomplished in real life, or at least not in my lifetime, such as living on… Continue

What I did today :-D (dream world and real life)

Real life:

-Messed up big time on a really important project in art class. We were making pinch pots. Everyone's pinch pot, EXCEPT FOR MINE, turned out beautifully. I messed up on pretty much every single thing we were supposed to do to make the pot, so it turned out terrible beyond description. The weird thing is, I wasn't even daydreaming the entire time I listened to the teacher's instructions and made the pot.

-Nothing else out of the ordinary really happened



Fantasy… Continue

Finding Out I Had MDD

Sorry if my writing sounds a little weird, I'm tired and a little bit sick.



Okay, so when I was little, I LOVED to play pretend. Well, most little kids do, but I REALLY loved it. It was pretty much the only thing I ever played, and I always took it to the next level.



Fast forward to age 10: I was misdiagnosed by a school counselor as having an "imaginational over-excitability disorder", but no one believed him because he was always diagnosing kids with serious disorders… Continue

My head feels bigger on the inside

Does anyone here watch Doctor Who? (It's a huge trigger for me but I still watch it, LOL.) Okay, remember that one episode where The Doctor gets a distress signal from another TARDIS and ends up in a "bubble universe"? Remember how that one woman there gets possessed by the TARDIS? She asks "Is this how old people feel? Bigger on the inside?" Or maybe you don't watch Doctor Who but you play/watch Pokemon. You know how Pokeballs are really small, but they can hold enormous creatures? My point… Continue
