Where wild minds come to rest

Hi Everyone, my name is Zoe Ridgway and I am currently in my final year of high school in Australia. I do not have MD, I stumbled across this site in my research for a short story that I plan on writing in regard to MD. It's about a woman who is undiagnosed with MD and virtually bed-ridden. Her son tries to 'wake her up' by manifesting the positive parts of her daydream in reality, from her bedroom to even their town. I feel deeply for what you all have to go through and I want my story to treat this condition with the authenticity and sensitivity it deserves. What I am trying to get at here is that I would be honored to have the opportunity to talk to anyone with MD about what it is like, be it typed, voice or video conversation. Your words could influence this story, which may even be published. You can choose to remain anonymous or possibly have a dedication in the end. This is your chance to speak up and raise more awareness of this condition, so please let me know if you are interested.
Please feel free to ask me anything at all,
Yours sincerely,

Hey everyone, I'm so glad to have this many people keen about the idea! I have requested you all as friends, and Im looking very forward to being able to talk to you :) In regard to Laura's question, I wanted to write about a woman who preferred her dreams over her reality so I did some research and realized that such a thing existed. Quite a coincidence!

Add me to the list - the story you're writing sounds fascinating, and I'm so glad that you're aware of the condition and are willing to do genuine research on it!! I'm more than willing to chat, email, whatever. Just let me know :)

Hi, Ms. Zoe!
I am really excited to read your post. I think it's absolutely wonderful that you want to use our stories for research. We've been trying to get our stories out there for a while, and I've actually never had anyone ask me for mine personally. I'm definitely willing to share! I would type it all out right now, but I am on a tight schedule and have to run really soon, so I'll revisit your blog later today and share.
I'm so excited about this! Thank you, Miss!

I think I'd be willing to share some of my story with you. :) The fact that you sympathize with the condition without having experienced it is really amazing! Thank you for that! If you don't mind me asking, how did you first learn about MD?

I'm always interested in getting the word out.   Let me know if you'd like to chat sometime.
