I'm reading through blogs and realising there are so many ways people daydream. Like, do you guys only have one way of daydreaming, do you have multiple, do you need music or need to be in a certain space, I'm genuinely interested!! :) 

Also how else does it affect you? I mumble to myself when I walk, kind of humming the conversation in my mind. If that makes sense :) 

Also, does anyone else daydream with spinning? 

I know I seem really excited today haha, I'm just happy to have this community, and I'd love to know about you guys!

comment ur routine with MD, or how you do it. I'll love to read them, and I think it'll be cool to find other people with the same habits!!

I either stare into space silently, or pace while talking to myself. Sometimes I daydream with music, but only if it directly relates to the story or the emotions of the scene. For example, I’ll listen to dance music if there’s a scene in a club, or sad music if there’s a sad scene.

I will say that when I was in grades 1-10, I would sometimes stare into space while with friends or family.  However, I was not daydreaming when I did this. I was just relaxing. I could hear and see everything around me.  I have read that this could be a mild form of epilepsy, but I’ve never been diagnosed with it.  I have two nieces who have had childhood epilepsy. I stopped it before I graduated from high school.

I had an older cousin who had DD. She told me about it and I guess that’s how I got it. But, i’ve had it so very long…I can’t recall not having it.  

How do we know that everyone doesn’t do it?  They may just not admit to it.  Self reporting is based on the honor system.   So, I suspect it could be a lot more prevalent than reported.

Lucky you. I don't know many people who haven't clued in. How do you fake being here, when you're not really here? I am very bad at that. Actually, these days I'm surrounded by grown ups, and they can only assume so, even when I don't really show it. I think it's because I'm so dead pan, I don't talk often, and I stare around, and they feel I don't listen. I get so embarrassed when they ask, "Where are you?"

I think the differences are interesting.  I use multiple methods.  I may look completely normal, as if nothing is up, but what I’m doing, whether it’s shopping, exercising, dining with friends, etc, but the dialogue is going on inside my mind.  Alone, I do the same thing or I could be more engaged, glancing around the room, dancing, singing or doing housework.  I rarely speak a loud.  I suspect it’s because I have always taken daydreaming with me, It’s never held me back.  I’ve taken it to school, church, concerts, parties, dates, etc.  I even had it with me when I lived with my Ex.  He had no idea.  None of my exes have any idea.

Actually people have mimicked what I look like WHEN I daydream. They demonstrate how my eyes roll up, practically to the ceiling and I make a gawping face.

I freeze and stare into space, or rant to myself. Apparently, I make people very angry or upset, even when I wonder the slightest bit. I've tried to drop daydreaming, but still find myself comatose when I'm doing something.
