Conflicted about MDD

Started this discussion. Last reply by BlackUnicorn Dec 3, 2016. 4 Replies

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.See More

"I'm in the same place right now too. If I'm alone for even a minute I'm sucked back under and it's draining me as well. Hence why I am back on here looking for blogs and discussions and anything to keep my mind busy."

"I understand what you mean by the triggers and how staying busy helps. Try to hang in there until Jan... maybe try and enjoy the MD as an escape if you think you can easily drop it again when you get back to your life. At least you know and…"

"Not bringing it up immediately isn't really wrong. It depends on whether you trust that therapist enough to reveal that issue. Wait and see, and when you're confident enough (you'll know when you are) bring it up. It may even happen…"

"I agree. You should tell your doc about MDD when you feel comfortable enough. I didn't mention many important things at my first several sessions. And even now after half a year of therapy, even though I opened up to my doc a lot, I don't…"

"I think it's totally okay not to tell the first session. Do you know your therapist before? Anyway I think you have to build trust first. I think I wouldn't mention MDD upfront too. But maybe you will manage to mention some clues like…"

Therapy Time

Started up again with a new therapist. Just finished first session and didn't bring up daydreaming. Why is it so hard to admit this?

"Hello. Nice introduction, you're definitely not alone. I also suffer from depression so I totally understand your empty feels. I also wonder if I could ever quit daydreaming. I have definitely gone through periods where I haven't and times…"

"That's a good thought with the seasons. I realized that nature is a strong triggre for me, took me very long to figure that out. If I see a beautiful or somehow poetic scene. I use it immediately as a stage. In a deep forest it's the worst…"

New to this, not to MDD, but to talking about it. Browsing through blogs and groups is an eye opener. I go through phases when MDD is controlled and fun to it spiraling out of control and a deep dark depression sets in. In in the dark place now but finding this network helps.



Maybe I can get back to the control soon and have fun with it again. I'd really love to have conversations with anyone here, maybe I'll even find the courage to share details of my stories as I love to hear… Continue
