"Wow thanks guys! I've not heard of the counting 5 things you see etc thing before. I feel like that would work. And also reading something to keep my focus on something else. I'm definitely gonna try those out thanks so much XXX"

"I read this somewhere and it works.  Count off 5 things you can see, 4 things you can feel, 3 things you can smell.  Be very specific and it seems to ground me and pull out."

"Oh and there is this 5 second countdown rule which kind-of helps but maybe it'll help you more. So basically whenever you daydream and you realise it countdown from 5 and then it should help you get back to reality but it doesn't always…"

"So far I've found bringing my attention back from daydreaming helps. These things have helped me:  1) Speaking out loud or singing 2) reading something small, like the ingredients list of a product. 3) listening to songs you don't…"

F J commented on Damask's blog post MD has ruined my life
"It can be very difficult. Sometimes I try to limit it when I need to do something by putting my absolute focus on that task and being around other people. You can also go to a doctor and try and talk through it to get some help. Good luck with it…"

F J replied to F J's discussion "Idealized self" in the group Write your dd plots
"Secret: that makes sense to be fair. A lot of people seem to do it for escape. I do too but I think I like to escape from who I am and become who I wish I was - confident."

Vicious cycle

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 4:41pm 4 Comments

I want to get this off my chest as I don't talk about my MD to people I know....

I feel like my low self confidence causes me to daydream a lot abd in turn my daydreams cause me to have low self confidence... Hence the title - vicious cycle!

Any advice on how to break it... I just wanna be brave and confident in myself enough to live in the real world.

Boredom/Too much free time

Posted on December 7, 2015 at 12:08pm 7 Comments

I've concluded boredom and too much free time is the biggest cause for my day dreams.

It started when I was younger as an escape from bullying and social anxiety and now I use it for escape, comfort and entertainment.

Any tips on how to keep myself busy to stop doing it so much??? Desperately looking for a graduate job... but for an English student with social anxiety and poor communication skills it's not the easiest of tasks!

Dealing with MD...

Posted on January 8, 2015 at 6:08pm 4 Comments

Hi all,

I was wondering what your best ways to handle MD in your day to day lives are?

I am struggling to minimise my daydreaming and I do not want it to take over my life.

It can help and be a source of creativity, comfort and escape but I would like to hear some

suggestions of how to fantasize less so I can enjoy the moments and people around me, if you have any...

Thanks guys and have a good day! :)
