Maladaptive Daydreaming Disorder
home contact archive theme
My name is Kelsey. I have been a maladaptive daydreamer now for 13 years. I made this Tumblr so that I can talk with you about all aspects of MDD, as they come and go, and you can share too. Just know you aren't alone.

I was gonna post this later in the week but i’m so excited about it I’m gonna post it now!I drew this last night. The babes actually with their instruments. This drawing is loosley based of the ramones cover art for Road to Ruin.I’ve gotten sooo much better at drawing them than when I first started. So proportionate. (Can you see the Kristen stewart-ness in Alice and the Taylor Momsen-ness In Kelly? I’ve been working on that.)This is my favourite drawing I’ve done of them so far! I think im gonna print it off and put it up in my room lol.

lol

isnt it odd how the human mind expands inwardly forever

i can build characters and worlds and universes and define new laws of nature

construct stories and timelines and fit it all together inside my own head

and yet i can’t draw a fUCKING LAMP

Thank you

I have MD and I created a petition for Maladaptive Daydreaming to be recognized as an official disorder. change (dot ) org / petitions / american-psychiatric-association-legally-recognize-maladaptive-daydreaming-as-a-mental-disorder#

This is absolutely amazing. I gladly signed it and so should all my lovely followers. (:

Today’s mental health reminder: a relapse, a sudden series of attacks, a string of awful days, (or whatever your step back may be) does not decrease your value. Take your time, do some self care, reflect on the progress that you have made. You are strong; one step back is nothing when you look at the journey you have already made.

I wanted to say about the person who only does it in their free time, I am mostly the same way. It used to control my life but now my concentration is top notch so I only DD when I am idle. I am still 100% an MDer

Thats also how I am right now.

I've been curious about the way other people experience md for some time. Would it be too invasive to create a survey with questions about one's experiences, as well as the general demographics of the community? ( If I wound up creating the survey, all or most questions would be optional; I wouldn't force anyone to answer a question they weren't comfortable with.) (◕‿◕✿)

Absolutely go for it! The more data the merrier, even if its purely for personal interest/curiosities. (: Doing it anonymously would probably make people even more likely to join in. The only issue I can see with that is getting people to participate in the survey! There are a lot of MDers on Tumblr but sometimes it is still hard to reach out to them all. Provided a decent amount of people participate, I think there would be really interesting results and if they are anonymous/confidential I would love for you to update me on your progress so I can try to help spread the word! :D

Hi. I was just wondering if you could help me clarify whether I have this or not. I think I do, but the key factor that i've discovered from looking through the tags is that it controls the person's life. With me, my daydreams only last about an hour, and I do it during my freetime. However i looked up an article about it, and every other symptom applies to me. i can only daydream while I spin in circles and listen to music. It also angers me if someone interrupts me. They are very detailed.

I’m not a professional but in my personal opinion I would say yes you have maladaptive daydreaming. While the symptoms range in intensity and not everyone has every symptom some of them are undoubtedly symptoms of MD such as: your movements in circles, being triggered and aided by music, experiencing irritation when interrupted from your dreams. MD affects everyone differently and it seems as if you have more of a sense of control over your dreams. I would just watch the frequency of your daydreaming and be careful not to spend too much time doing it because in some circumstances it can become out of control. But you sound like you have a good grasp on it. (:
