Just when I think I'm coming out of MD, there are other signs that are still apparent. The other night, my family was watching TV and my sister noticed that I had a horrified expression on my face. I…Continue

This is so embarrassing, I was in the bathroom and my mom was calling me. As I shouted back and opened the door, I heard her words, "Are you talking to yourself or are you listing to me? I saw my…Continue

Have no friends outside of daydreaming

I have been a maladaptive daydreamer for years, but always wondered why I was so alone in reality. Fictional characters in my mind were always kind and agreeable to me, and living with them was…Continue

Silver Swan replied to kitrat's discussion When 'giving up' should i let myself have set times?
"Actually, it's the other way around for me. I daydreamed heavily for a good 20 years, but felt like I blew my life away, which is kind of scary. I only used my daydreams as an escapism from my real life. I didn't fit into the crowd and…"

"I did for a full 15 years, but it took me another 5 years to transform and think normally as anyone else. Still, I tend to pause and drift by accident. My mom can't always tell when I'm listening to her and knows about my daydreaming. I…"

"Met too. My MDD is now in short bursts. Although, my mind meditates for hours when I'm off work. I just don't live in alternate worlds anymore."

Talyla replied to Silver Swan's discussion Getting Real
"Well to me it depends how bad the MD is. I was able to have a real relationship, do very well in school and have somewhat of a social life (Im antisocial in general) while having MD. As time went on and I got farther and farther away from the reason…"

"I had to quit daydreaming, as so many people were finding out what I was doing, and it wasn't good. I also have a form of asperger syndrome, so I failed to conceal my MDD. Sooner than later, everybody reacted like they thought I was on Mars,…"

Ulaan Gom replied to Silver Swan's discussion People can see me MD
"I've been caught with MD many times, and I can say that it definitely gets disheartening. Socially, I feel like MD has created a gap between how I really want to express myself and how I actually end up expressing myself towards other people.…"

Just when I think I'm coming out of MD, there are other signs that are still apparent. The other night, my family was watching TV and my sister noticed that I had a horrified expression on my face. I wasn't day dreaming, but I was thinking of something very serious. Whenever I'm deep in thought, it just bleeds out of my face. I've had random people and co-workers see me make all sorts of faces. Lately, my family does catch me talking to an 'invisible person' in the room, and this has been going…See More

Seeking more tangible things

Posted on August 16, 2018 at 11:07am 0 Comments

I literally spent nearly 20 years day dreaming about needing a boyfriend, but just today, I feel that was a scary thing to do.

I don't know many people who've done this! They basically just payed attention to others and got the partner they wanted, in a super outgoing manner. I wonder if maybe I blocked myself from people too much by diving into MDD. I was never attracted to many real people throughout my life, as they weren't as favorable as my MDD characters. So, I wondered…

Expressing yourself is everything

Posted on August 13, 2018 at 12:17pm 0 Comments

Everybody use to gossip about me and taunt me in school for a simple reason: I didn't talk at all. I was your shy awkward type who didn't ever fit in. I had a couple friends at a time, but not too many. Everybody else was extremely chatty, super outgoing and extrovert—"and neurotypical." I was the only student that had autism spectrum disorder, so I was challenged with communicating and interacting. So my school and college job experiences were rather traumatic. Even into my…

I discuss my life situations, but only in my MDD

Posted on July 23, 2018 at 9:02am 0 Comments

Whenever I want to express how I feel about my life situations, I discuss them with imaginary friends, because they actually listen to me without getting snarky. I find that real people don't understand my form of language or they're like "Then, do something something about it." Actually, real people wonder why I've gotten into that situation in the first place, or they can clearly see what's evident, snip at me what's going to happen and what I better do in future. It's as if in…

It shows

I don't know how you guys do it! I try everything to conceal my day dreaming. I will put on startled, worried, wary or perplexed expressions to hide it. I'll even move my eyes around and bite my lips. People will still look right at my eyes and maybe even into them! I guess, they still wonder what goes on in my head. If I make a slip up at home and even work, people will think, 'is she wondering?'
