Does anyone listen to music to help them try to Stop daydreaming or simply to just hear something you can relate to? Recently I feel like some of Twenty One Pilot's songs (specifically Migraine) really relate to how I feel with my MD, anyone else feel this way?

I've never heard a song that described what it feels like to deal with MDD.  But I do find that if I put on music I really like that energizes me, I'm less likely to daydream.  Likewise with podcasts and audiobooks.  Since I mostly daydream during times that I'm busy doing something mindless (like driving, mowing the lawn, washing dishes, exercising, etc) then I have found that it helps to listen to something that keeps me distracted from my daydream.  Sometimes I don't have the will to focus though, and I just turn it off and go back into my daydream.

I never had either until I started listening to Twenty One Pilots, but I feel that way too, I have to be careful though because some music acts as a trigger, thats why I was pretty excited to hear twenty one pilots

I get what you're saying, mine have always been pretty dark and sad though and just end up upsetting me more and I would miss stuff too in order to daydream which is why I wanted to stop. It got so bad as to where I hated my mind, but I've come to realize that if I really focus and try I can use it for good because it is a part of me and I don't want to hate a part of myself, thats why it helps to listen to them because I feel like they put my exact thoughts about my daydreams into their lyrics, but they also help me feel hopeful about controlling them.

I never want to "stop daydreaming".  It's been a part of my life since I've had conscious thought and have felt comfort with it always as a thing I do to help get me through a bad time.  I do wish I could curb it during the times I need to actually focus and do something else.  I have actually missed family functions just to stay home and do it.  I don't want my sessions to stop altogether necessarily.  I just wish there was a way to have some self-control and know when to stop when I need to do something real.  Also, music is almost always a trigger - it doesn't even matter what kind.  I can hear almost anything and it fills my brain and I can immediately start having a session.
