Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
i tend to go long periods of time without posting on here, and i apologize for that. i usually only come on here when i have a question, but it's different this time.
if you forgot (and you probably did haha), i'm meghan. i'm currently 16 years old and a junior in high school. i have had MD since i was 9 years old. to sum up my MD: i usually either lie down while daydreaming or pace and listen to music while daydreaming, although i can daydream without doing those things. i am very attached to my huge set of characters, and that's what makes the daydreaming so addicting to me. i am an only child and spend most of my time alone, so i spend most of that time daydreaming. i am also very introverted and have bad social anxiety as well as depression (but thankfully, the depression is getting better). you can read my other blog posts for a better idea of my characters and how i daydream.
every time i go on this website i feel a little bad because there are so few of us with this disorder that i feel like we need to stick together, and i do a bad job of doing that. when i come on here i feel less alone, and although i've known about the disorder for over 2 years, it never fails to surprise me how there are others out there who do the same thing as i do. but like i said, i only go on here when i have a question, and i'm going to change that.
if any of you daydream similarly to me and would like to message me, please feel free to do so. i'd love to talk about MD with you and give you support in any way that i can. having an obscure disorder like this can feel scary at times and it's always nice to know that there are others who share this habit. i'm also going to try to contribute more to this little MD community and start to share more of my thoughts.
thanks for reading.
