Hello & Welcome to Maladaptive Daydreaming is Real

My name is Anna and I’m a compulsive daydreamer.  I’ve so far only been a maladaptive daydreamer for 5 months but it has substantially affected my life enough for me to create this blog. To be honest with you, sometimes I feel like I’m going a bit nuts, because i love the feeling I get from my daydreams but then hate it at the same time.  I hate the fact that I’m struggling to control these fantasies as they are now intruding upon my working life so I’m not as productive as I once was. I hate the fact that MD is now intruding on my home life so I’m not as present as I once was to my family.

I therefore created this website so we could all draw upon our experiences and help one another to combat this addiction, because I do believe that (MD) Maladaptive Daydreaming is an addiction, pretty much like alcohol is to alcoholics.

Anyway, why I think this is not all bad news is because people have beaten this fantasy compulsion, so this leads me to believe we can too. I am going to test out every single ‘treatment’ that maladaptive daydreamers have said has helped to rid them of this addiction and document it.  Because something will have to work.  It has to.

Hello, I'm Anna! I'm a 38 year old Maladaptive Daydreamer from London. I want to stop the maladaptive daydreaming, which is why I created this blog. Please excuse any typos, as you know I have MD so sometimes writing a post can take forever but at least I know you'll understand where I'm coming from.
