Libby replied to Zadie Rahman's discussion SO GRATEFUL
"I remember my google search and the discovery of others like me. It was such a turning point for me because I didn't feel crazy. I had been living with the fear of my own craziness for so long, it was a wonderful moment for me. I'm so glad…"

Libby replied to Libby's discussion Thoughts about triggers
"I agree with everything you said Jules. I get triggered by movies, songs, books, events in the news, art, even people. Realistically, unavoidable. Then certain situations, like mundane task or time alone, will just allow it to go. But I suppose that…"

Jules replied to Libby's discussion Thoughts about triggers
"I don't actually think that doing mundane, everyday things is a "trigger" as such...but an environment that encourages my DD's. My triggers I would say are things like, movies, books, music, an event, or after having a…"

Libby replied to Libby's discussion Thoughts about triggers
"I agree. You can't avoid all triggers. Singing a song might actually work better than trying to concentrate on something else. I have gotten really good at concentrating on mental tasks, but concentrating my thoughts while simultaneously…"

Libby commented on havoc_s's blog post imagine an opposite world
"@LilySierra I was reading this in one of the few papers written about MD: Excessive fantasizing may have been described as early as 1893, when Breuer reported the case study of Anna O. which he published jointly with Freud in ‘‘Studies…"

Ellen replied to Libby's discussion Thoughts about triggers
"I don't think it is possible to avoid all triggers.   When you are doing things like folding laundry, driving, or walking (walking is a big trigger for me), I think the best way to avoid daydreaming is…"

Libby commented on Amber W.'s blog post Intro and Question about merging my fantasy with reality...
"It's strange, I didn't suffer from MD when I was pregnant either. I'm wondering if it was something with our body chemistry. My DDs will never be realized because they are rather ridiculous and absolutely unrealistic. However, when my…"

Thoughts about triggers

Thoughts about the advice to avoid triggers...It seems most common that MDers can identify a trigger for their daydreaming, usually some kind of media. How often does your brain make the switch without any known trigger, or maybe something triggers  it that you wouldn't have imagined. Do you have to have a trigger? For me, certain things are a sure fire antecedent. However, some things will trigger me unexpectedly. I notice this happens when I try to avoid my known triggers, which I do think is…See More

Libby commented on havoc_s's blog post imagine an opposite world
"I wonder about the ratio all of the time. I also wonder if I know someone in real life who has MD. I think I would know if someone I was close to had it only because I would know what to look for, but what about acquaintances. Is the ratio so high…"

Libby commented on Emily's blog post Ok... here it goes.
"Hi Emily. I joined a long time ago, but I have never been much of a poster and I never introduced myself with my story like you have. So it feels awkward for me to welcome you here, but welcome anyway. I can identify with a lot of what you say. You…"

Libby replied to Ellie Hale's discussion What are you doing when you need to day dream?
"You are more positive about this than me. I think of it like my brain has a drive to fantasize. I have done a ton of little experiments on myself to try to control it and what I realize is, I can't just stop it. I am mentally unable to just…"

Libby replied to lamira's discussion Im new here:) a little a bout me...
"Hi Lamira I have also been diagnosed with ADD. I gave up my ritalin. It's helps me in so many ways, but it makes my creative juices flow like Niagr Falls and it's too much to bear. I know that sounds crazy, but it's somehow…"

Libby replied to Adriene's discussion Does anyone know?
"Hi guys. I'm Libby. I'm glad to have found you all. Anyway, My family has no idea. After I completed Cynthia's survey, I felt uplifted and inspired. Everything felt different. I started thinking...It has a name now. There is a…"

Thanks! That never gets old! Lol. I've been living with this for all my life, and it's an on-going struggle. Having you all here helps me a lot. Psychology isn't like medicine. There's no quick fix for anything, so having support is crucial. I think as you read some of the forums you'll find that this is a safe place to hang out free of fear or judgment. Speak as much or as little as you want. If you want to talk about something and are afraid, just remember there's likely someone else who's been afraid to say it to who you can help. You can just hang out if you want as well. Let me know if there's anything I can do. I'm still learning about this, but I'll do what I can to help.
