Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I was researching a lot about MDD recently, I had been struggling with it for many years. I managed to stopped it and I have been living MDD free for half a year.
My problem is that I had to stop all daydreaming in order to do not relapse and I lost my main cope-with-stress strategy; every little failure or mistake makes me feel miserable. Sometimes I feel so empty without daydreams, I used to never be alone in my head. Part of me understands that I am making a bigger difference in reality now, but part of me cannot deal with a fact that my life is not special and it's pretty gray.
I want to ask, how did your life change after MDD or during periods without MDD? Did you end up feeling better in the end?
