Maladaptive daydreaming is often a private and challenging issue. Even after discovering this community one can still feel alone and unsupported. Much is still unknown about MD, but even less is known about the people who deal with it on a daily basis. In an effort to bring MD’ers together, Maladaptive Daydreaming Support has created an online survey for the MD community.
This is a survey to anonymously collect and share basic statistics about maladaptive daydreaming. The point of this survey is to find commonalities between people who suffer from maladaptive daydreaming symptoms and help us compare our similarities and differences. Previous surveys about maladaptive daydreaming have not had large sample sizes (completed responses) or have not accounted for the varying nature of maladaptive daydreaming. This will also be published for the MD community, not the psychiatric community and results will be presented in plain language (i.e. - 50% of people daydream for 1-3 hours a day). The statistics will be updated as more information is added. Volunteering to complete this survey helps everyone better understand their symptoms and experiences. You can take this survey even if you aren’t sure if you have MD.
Help us better understand ourselves and this unique experience. Please share this to help it reach someone who needs to know they’re not alone.
