I have noticed that some of my DDs involve me going to see a therapist as part of the story line. I do or say something that gets me ordered to go to "medical" for an evaluation lol. But I think the…Continue

the unknown person

anyone ever have a character in your DD that you didn't create? that you don't know from some movie, book or life? a mystery person. I have, from the beginning. I think if I could just figure out where this person came from, I might get to the bottom of why I DD. I can't remember the first time he appeared in a DD. If I could, I think it could answer some questions. I thought about hypnosis but I am afraid of that. How to make myself remember.See More

"I was diagnosed Bio Polar when I went to a psychiatrist about my MDD. Not knowing what to make of my on running DDs he called them racing thoughts and labeled me bi polar.  I don't believe I am. "

sleeping my life away

 I seem to be sleepy all the time. I just want to lay down. It is the only time my brain shuts up. Sleep. A rest from the mental clutter I’ve had lately. Like an introvert in a crowd of talking people. My mind gets so noisy I just want to scream “shut up!” How to find a quiet place.See More

greyartist replied to Philippa Somerville's discussion For me, lowering histamine controls MDD
"I'm confused on what histamine is. I always thought it was what makes you sneeze, have allergies. You take things like Benadryl for it. I never heard of it being in food."

greyartist replied to Kay M's discussion How much control do you have over your storyline?
"During times when it is at it's worst, the story writes itself. It is like me being tied to a chair and forced to watch a movie, usually a traumatic one. When it is less I have more control and can shange things when it starts to get uopsetting."

greyartist replied to Elisha's discussion The root cause of Maladaptive dayreaming?
"I think MDD is much like depression in that it has many causes. Grief, trauma, abuse, chemical imbalance, emotionaldisorders, etc. Mine is most certainly chemical imbalance, since it started with my menopause and was eased with hormon therapy.…"

fog1 The line between reality and something else. I can tell when my illness is getting worse. Maladaptive Daydreaming Disorder is an illness, not an excuse to waste your life fantasizing about what you will never have the will to try. But to me it is most diffidently an illness.
