Hi Tinkerbell,  what helped me when I got upset and really wanted to daydream was actually concentrating on what made me upset and have thoughts on it like my own opinion to what was going on and this prevented mding.  I mean its ok to daydream but only for short periods of time. mding is when you daydream for hours.

I read your comment about finding people with similar issues to yourself and feeling the need to help them, and it resonated with me. I think that going into a friendship to help someone can be less scary because it's more structured. You both have roles: they are the person who needs help and you are the person who helps.
