Wild Minds Network

Where wild minds come to rest

I found this page a month ago, And it seems everybody on this page hates having MDD.

But I enjoy being able to make up stories in my head, and being able to attach myself to the characters that I make up.

Not many people have the ability to do this, and I see it more as a unique gift than a curse.

Does anybody else feel this way? other than me?

And for the ones who struggle so much with MDD, why is it so difficult for you? Why don't you like it?

Thanks. :)

I love it too and want to make a career out of it but because its like a spin off of tv programes I like I could run into copyright issues.

I love my MDD, it's the most positive thing in my life. I have problems accessing my MDD right now, instead I get angry for no reason... It hurts my head not being able to go into my world even for a few seconds. Nowadays I need music to calm me until I can finally finally acces the only outlet out of stress I have

Love you g8uys

 This year I found out how much I love and need to daydream every day. I can't remember any bad thing that it caused me, I only remember hapiness that I feel when I meet my characters every day when I start doing it while going to theuniversity. There are days when my mind is too fool of other impressions and I can't daydream, and I don't like the feeling.

Maybe I would study even harder instead of daydreaming...but I just don't want to stop! I'm stable and pretty OK.
But I saw a lot of stories of people who are really suffering from MD, so we should not underestimate its effects...

I actually do very much enjoy my daydreaming. It provides me with a temporary escape from the stressors of my daily life and makes me happy. I do struggle with my sleep/wake cycle at times because of my daydreaming, but nothing too distressing.

I like having MD, too. I also believe that MD saved me from my childhood. Not to mention the fact that reality is so dull and unsatisfying (I don't know how people who don't have MD stand it!).

Thanks so much for creating this post. At first when I joined this site I felt the same way, it felt like everyone here hated MDD. On the contrary I love having MDD, it has been a part of me for forever. It is my escape, gives me hope when I am hopeless, keeps me going when I should be breaking. It is because of MDD that I am alive today, If I had not developed a way to escape my horrible childhood, I would have committed suicide a long time ago. So I know it may seem like everyone hates having MDD, but you are not alone. I love having MDD, it has literally saved my life, from the horrors that otherwise would have taken it. I hope you post more about your joy of having MDD. You are right it is also a gift at least to some of us it is!!!

Okay...  I don't view daydreaming as a disease.  I view daydreaming as something that everyone does.  What people on this site often describe is maladaptive daydreaming.  It causes dysfunction in their lives. For me, daydreaming can turn into an addiction.  I end up sacrificing health, sleep, work ethic, social interaction because I'm compulsively daydreaming.  Things that once interested no longer interest me as much.  

That said, daydreaming at a more innocent level is a coping mechanism that is helpful.  I'm not talking about using it to run away from my problems (I don't think), but using it as a way to distract my mind from over-analyzing life.  I think my noggin is prone to over-analysis, and I'd frankly rather over-analyze the lives of some fictional people than over-analyze my own life.  It's good to analyze your life.  Over-analyzing?  Not so much.

MD is a disease and people do not like to be sick. It may be good as long as I am in the dream world but causes difficulty when forced to face the real life. For a sample some bad effects of MD:

 - as more time is spent on daydreams - less time on academics/job

 - many times there are side effects to long-time MD like depression/anxiety/ADHD. I have bipolar disorder.

 - difficulty in communication, concentration
