If there was a cure for your wrank imagination, would you take it?

I will have MD permanently.

No, this isn't a pessimistic outlook on the cure for Maladaptive Daydreaming; it's a confession. I have to confess that even if a cure were an option, I would not take it. Oh! What a thing to hear myself say! But it is true.

So tell me, my fellow tortured souls: if you had a free ticket to sanity, would you take it?

 

The philosophy behind my belief is simple: our personalities as human beings are based on our experiences.

But experience itself is an objective priniciple; it is our perception that alters and biases the experience, and forms it into our character.

Our perception, our ability to think builds our personalities, and anyone with MD certainly has a unique method of perceiving and thinking...

I know I am a good thinker, and I fear the worst should my MD be altered, considering it is the method by which I do so.

@Heidi & greyartist: I'm telling ya, if you really want it to go away, you can practice it out of existence, but you really have to be dedicated to doing it and have a strong desire to let it go.


After reading what you wrote, I'm actually planning on trying this. I just need to find my bracelet or whatever to help. I think getting back into journaling as a spiritual practice and centering prayer will help, too. I just need to take the time to do both.

how do you practice it away???
Read my previous posts from this thread, and if you have any more questions, just ask.

I'd be the first in line at the pharmacy to get that pill. I won't deny that fantasies feel so SO good!!  But it interferes with my life too much and doesn't let me feel genuine happiness. I did get rid of two kinds of disturbing fantasies I had often in life when I ended up in the ER  because of food poisoning. As I laid there dying the fantasies assaulted me non-stop and I found myself thinking "omg, the last thoughts of my life will be garbage pipe dreams... after that I never thought about those particular kind of fantasies again. Perhaps I associated them with physical pain at the time and well, it stuck. Now I have just two more types of fantasies I need to get rid of, but it's very hard. At least, I feel I'm half way to ending the md. I hope this doesn't offend you, I just know it in my bones that I could be a much better person if I wasn't constantly  spacing out all the time. For one thing, I would have better social skills, lol. : P
If I had a ticket to sanity I would take it.  I have a lot of talents that I could be using if I didn't get overtaken by my daydreams.
