"I daydream about 50% of the time I am awake. There is definitely a relationship between sleep dreaming quality and daydreaming.   Andy"

"An alcoholic cant have one little drink and expect to stay sober. For me it the same thing with fantasy. I just cant allow it at all or i will will soon be drunk from this sickness. But it so very hard to stop - Maybe even impossible. "

"I know exactly what you are talking about. Fantasy can be a very powerful addiction, and we have withdrawal symptoms when we try to stop. But I believe it is still necessary for me to somehow escape the dream world and force myself to participate in…"

Dear Andy,

thank you very much for inviting to be your friend here. I would be very much interested in sharing your experience with mine. All this is vey new for me ( knowing about the existence of MDD)  and although it is hell, of course , it good to know that we are not alone. I am very ashamed of it but I think that to be able to talk is a very good beginning to heal. It cannot be worse than it is.

I am in my late 40's now and I have suffered from MDD since I was 6 yeras old, as far as I remember. the worse is that I can even recall how it has started.  It was a schock for me to discover that this can be considered as an illness ( altought not yet expressed as such) for what you say is right, I am convinced that it is an illness, certainly a kind of OCD and as such we will have to treat it with medication one day. I also suffer from another OCD since childhood and that one no medication and no therapy has ever been able to solve. I think I can be very happy not be an alcoholic or drug addict, but MDD is a kind of drug which will not kill me, maybe, but will depress me and destroy my social life, if I do not get out of it once and for all. I have wasted my life because of it. I only wish that research will definitely help these young ones in future for when I read that some of them do not want to  quit MDD, because that is the most important thing  they have, it makes me cry !!! I will come back to you later. Thank you for your comments in advance and thank you for sharing !!

Kim
