Look at the Bright Side

This is for the daydreamers that don't look at their disorder as a curse but yet as a gift; a gift given to a select few that allows them to live not one, but many lives.

I've been MDD my entire life, and I honestly believe it's taught me how to multitask. Since I've lived my life and been ather successfully, all the while immersed in my daydreams, I've learned how to think about and do multiple things at once.

When I was younger I struggled with controlling my MDD primarily because I didn't understand what it was. I was ashamed and feared I would be teased if others knew I was daydreaming. My parents were strictly religious and I feared they would think I were either possessed or blessed so I hid it from them.

Out of fear I forced myself to hide or disguise my MDD. I can only be deeply engaged in my MDD if I am placing or walking fast so I would hide my MDD by taking long walks.

As I've gotten older (I'm 40), I have also forced or trained myself to control the topic or idea I dream about better. Instead of replaying a fictional character (a better version of myself usually), I've focused on replaying processes. I'm an accountant who works with designing databases. A lot of my biggest accomplishments have come from my MDD. When I can't figure out a solution at work I take a walk around a couple blocks and my focused MDD helps me come up with a solution. I can usually run numerous (sometimes hundreds) of scenarios through my head during a 5 minute walk but if I were sitting at my desk it would take me days to come up with a similar solution.

I don't think you should try to get rid of MDD, instead learn to focus your thoughts or dreams. In addition, MDD can be fun, as you work to train yourself, you can give yourself some wild or free time as a treat or reward.
