Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
You experiences with MD are so very similar to many people on this site. I'm not sure if anyone has really found a successful strategy to stop MDDing yet. I'm sure a lot of us are trying. At the moment I'm looking more to manage it instead of aiming to get rid of it completely. (It takes baby steps)
I am trying a number of things, but the key thing I've been shifting focus on recently is the emotional triggers. I am looking for healthier ways to process the feelings/emotions I experience so I am not tempted to MDD. I think to a certain extent it has helped. I do find myself more present.
