I've theorized that I am more likely to MD when I do not get quality sleep, or if I consume too much sodium and my blood pressure rises. DAE have any theories like this?Continue

Comparing MDD to drug addiction

I have a hard time comparing my MD to drug addiction; I've never experienced drug addiction, therefore I don't feel that it is my place to compare myself to a drug addict. I've always thought that MD is just how my brain has been wired since birth. Unless someone scans my brain and says, "Yup; your brain lit up exactly like a person addicted to Narcotics," I won't compare myself to an addict. I see discussions all over the internet where people who suffer from MD make claims that they are like…See More

The Connection between MD and Sleep?

I'm starting to wonder if the parts of the brain that are responsible for dreaming at night, during REM sleep are responsible for daydreaming as well. I've noticed recently, that my MD's are more prevalent in the mornings (as I am waking up) and the context of my daydreams are more unrealistic and troubling than they are throughout the rest of the day. I've also found that the dreams I wake up and remember can trigger hour-long daydreams that follow the same themes while I am in the process of…See More

"i'm the same way laura. i find it takes a lot of physical energy to daydream (at least to daydream things that have some sort of substance)"

"I don't know if I'm more likely but I have noticed my DDs kind of lack substance when I don't get good sleep. They're pretty boring, can never think of anything."
