Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Hey everyone. I just stumbled across this. A 60 year old man told a mother to make her baby "shut up" calling the baby a "nigger" and when the baby wouldn't stop crying, he actually went over and…Continue
I was wondering does anyone know where Hank is. I knew that he was going to delete his account but I didn't think he would delete it without telling me anything. Me and him were really close so I…Continue

So here's the thing. I used to love maladaptive daydreaming because it gave me a safer happier world to rely on. But now I realized, I could've had so much more in life if I didn't spend hours and hours daydreaming. If I'm not listening to music and pacing in the room, I'm zoning out during study time and engaging in scene playing in my head. Either that or I allow myself to sleep for a period of thirty minutes just so I could engage in some sort of fantasy in my head which then turns into 2…Continue
I'm currently in grade 12 and I have to balance my DD life with studying. My mom's telling me to get a job to work part time on the weekends.

So do think about whether you are an Empath.
I've never been theraphy before. The only thing that I've done is see a social worker which I stopped going to after she reccomended me to theraphy which I never went to because I wanted to focus on school. Thing with me is, I get good grades and I usually have an over 80 average but this semester I just lost motivation after getting a 70 in math last semester so I started off very badly, I didn't have the motivation nor the desire to do well. I skipped classes, I couldn't concentrate during…Continue
