Hello, I am from India and I have struggled with MD for almost 4 years now. I had no idea I wasn't alone. I had no idea it was a condition but I did diagnose THIS as a psychological issue. I thought it was because of lack of interaction with real people but I couldn't have been more wrong. I saw a post that deemed us as "dopamine junkies" and it is true. I absolutely cannot deny it. I do things repeatedly, things that gives me hapiness (I think). I saw a few posts and I am honestly stunned by the similarity in behaviour. I am really happy I found this.
Research is still being done to determine what exactly MD is, but I would generally consider it to be a behavioral addiction that is used as a coping mechanism. Lack of interaction with people CAN be something that you use MD to cope with.
Don't give up what you want most for what you want now.
