Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I've always been a really self destructive person. Aside from MDD, I've dealt with self harm, alcohol, drugs, eating disorders, even a caffeine addiction. Recently, I've been trying to be a better person and fix myself. I've stopped all of my self destructive stuff except for MDD (I know it isn't always self destructive, but for me it is and it always will be). I've been having a lot of problems stopping, as I knew I would.
I think the problem is this: my MDD character is my identity. I don't know who I am without her. She's been a major part of my life since I was 6. I literally do not know who I am without her.She's my identity. So I'm having a lot of problems moving on from MDD. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for me? They would be greatly appreciated.
