Hi everyone. Unlike some of you, my case of MD is very mild. I started at the beginning of the pandemic to escape all the bad things happening around me. To date, that was about 8-10 months ago. I don't daydream very often, mostly at night so I can go to sleep. But my MD is leaving my brain now. Last night, I just didn't daydream. It took a bit of time to process since I loved daydreaming. In the mornings, I also like to daydream a bit just to get my mind started. I didn't daydream when I woke up. I can't start daydreaming. It just happens. When my mind is in a comfortable setting (mainly lying down in my bed), I daydream. But it just didn't happen. And I want it to. Daydreaming made me feel safe and comfortable in my own little happy world. It didn't interfere with my daily life, since I was mainly distracted by online school. I still want it to be a part of me. Even if a cure/treatment does develop, I wouldn't want to take it. I want MD to still be a part of me. Daydreaming is flowing out of my mind, and I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?
Question is why do you need it? Most of the people seek help to control it for better life. Everyone enjoy the morning rush of it.if you have stopped it then I suggest instead of hanging on to it how it was you should find something in real life which makes you happier Hey afterall you are getting a chance to explore more good luck.
I think I need it to distract me from all the crazy things around me. I can't see any of my school friends because of the pandemic, and they meant a lot to me and played an active role in my day-to-day life. I'm going through a major shift in my life right now (I can't say for privacy reasons) , and even though it was something I was expecting, it brings a bit of an emotional and mental toll, and daydreaming is something that helps me cope with it. I've started journaling which brings me a sense of happiness and closure, but I'm what else I can do. I otherwise feel okay about life; I have family who cares about me, I'm getting a good education, and I do multiple extracurricular activities. I'm not really sure what to do otherwise...
I agree with you also in the fact that I wouldn't want it to leave me. I do find that some days my urge is not as strong to do it as some others. And some days the urge is more intense. I will tell you though through experience that the more you do it the more you want to do it. Since the pandemic started I find myself wanting to escape this reality world more frequently. It's my "safe" space. It removes me from the stresses we are going through in life right and makes me feel happy. I can pop out of it in a snap though and doesn't affect my daily life so I say why not. 😄
