Dreaming the Day Away

Epigram Student Newspaper published piece on MD

Last month Daisy Wigg, contributor for the University of Bristol’s independent student paper, Epigram, published a rundown of Maladaptive Daydreaming.

In a case study conducted by the Research Centre for Trauma and Dissociation, one sufferer of MD, Peter, describes using it as a distraction from his isolated reality, triggered by childhood bullying and pictures on the internet. Whilst his creation of alternate realities gave temporary respite, he also notes the regret of missed intimacies and describes himself as lacking a sense of maturity. The centre’s work with Peter did not seek to completely remove the use of daydreaming but looked to adapt it into an effective coping mechanism rather than a compulsion.
