Hi. I just found out that I might have MD and I’m new to this website too. I just read the symptoms and I pretty much have all of them. I keep daydreaming of a different life where I’m happier and idk, prettier? I guess I just put everything I want but don’t have into that dream of mine. It’s like a wistful exhilaration. I kind of use it as an escape sometimes or just daydream when I’m bored or listening to music. And it’s very detailed, from furniture to my clothes and my friends and everything. Idk how to describe it any further. Finding out about this has kind of changed my perspective on how I saw my daydreams. It makes me feel weird and I’m pushing myself to not do it anymore. I can’t exactly tell what’s right or wrong about MD and I can’t understand if it’s alright to daydream or I’m going crazy and should stop. But I just need help from someone who understands. I just want someone to listen and not judge. And I just need a bit of advice.
MD starts with a trait for immersive daydreaming, lots of people have it, only some of them experience problems with it. If it's leading to distress or dysfunction in your life then it might be MD, if not then its perfectly ok and normal to daydream like this, its doesn't necessarily point to something wrong. But where that line is is different in everyone and can only really come from personal reflection.
I think you'd find a lot of good listeners here. I've found very little judgmental remarks on this site, and I've read a whole lot of posts. I honestly think everyone here is a natural listener. I hope you find the support you're looking for here. The moderators here are so helpful and other regular users are helpful too. You don't have to feel weird. We are all a bit different here because our excessive daydreaming, but that difference is what unites us here. We all just want to get better, and find support from others dealing with this.
