I don't know if I could get rid of my MDD or not. I would miss my characters too much. I just wish I never had it in the first place. My characters would never exist to me, and everything would be okay.

I don't mind daydreaming at all, but I hate that it has become a replacement for reality. My imaginary friends are the only friends I've got, and I miss them dreadfully when I'm "away". When I try to stop daydreaming, reality just feels like a dream. It's scary.

But yes, I wish my MD would go away, and I have confidence that if I find the cause and the remedy, I won't need it anymore. I want to have real friends so I won't need my imaginary ones. I don't want to stop daydreaming altogether—I just don't want it to get in the way of living life.

It's okay.

Please forgive all the typos. Writing in this forum in mobile is extremely difficult.

I would not. I love my daydream characters too much to want them to be gone. Same for my daydream world itself. I just love them too much. Of course they can be a hastle at times, but I personally feel the pros outweigh the cons.

I don't think I will want to get rid of it completely. Maybe minimize it but that's it. I also think the pros outweigh the cons.

I would happily get rid of my MD if it didn't interfer with my creativity or day dreaming in general.  I find it so humilatinmg to be pacing a room or laughing to myself because of something in my head which isn't real.

If I could get rid of the shorter MDing, when little scenarios, often quite upsetting, pop into my head one after the other at an extreme pace, I most definitely would. They lead to me being anxious and paranoid, worrying about little things. However, the longer stories, that I have woven in my head for years? No way. It's a way to escape tedious everyday life.

Well, all cirumstances considered... I don't think I could ever get rid of my ability to daydream and immerse myself so completely. But I would definitely get rid of my addiction to it.
That's really my problem... being so dependent of daydreaming as a way to escape reality and relieve stress.... relieve the pain of not achieving all the things I hoped I would, being lonely, being isolated, etc.
I just wish I could find a more productive and healthy way to relieve my stress and anxiety levels... So far, the only methods that have ever helped me have been: friends, daydreaming & fantasy, video games/movies, food, cat and other various entertaining time-wasting activities. Needless to say, out of all these... I would only consider the time spent with my friends to be kind of productive and meaningful... everything else is just wasting time. Working a lot helps, but... it doesn't relieve any stress at all. :D

Anyway, thankfully I was able to come to my senses on time and have improved my condition a lot in the past few years. To compare, I can say that I don't feel the need to have characters anymore, whereas I used to have quite a few in the past... of myself, of one or two love-interests, or a few made-up enemies I always ended up humanizing in the end. Anyway, thank God I got all that out of the way... and I was also able to overcome a lot of personal problems, which I believe caused the need for me to create that "ideal" version of me. I am soooo.... so, so relieved to have gotten that out of the way, I just can't describe how much better I feel in comparison to before. I used to hate and pity myself so much.... agrh, like a huge chuck of rock has been lifted off my chest. I feel happier now, more peaceful and more real.
Anyway... I've certainly improved a lot, but I'm still very far from removing the habbit completely.
But I so would if I could. I wish I could enjoy the benefits of being such a good dreamer, without having my concentration and productivity suffer as much as it does now =(

Storytime! So today, my mother, my friend and I were in line at the AA (Automobile Association, for booking for my full) and there was a kind of long, slow-moving line, and my friend was so bored, like we talked for a bit and she ended up walking off and looking at stuff on the walls and all that and came back and walked around a bit and then sat in a chair for a bit and she was SOOO bored.

Me? I was reasonable content. Like, when she started talking to me, she pulled me out of a daydream, but besides that I was just in my own world for a lot of it. It's like, what goes on in your brain? How can you not keep yourself entertained without external stimuli?

Basically, I would get so. effing. bored.

But it would be good to have a little more control over it. I think I've actually got more than I used to.

Well my MD is locked up in my medicated mind and I'm unable to daydream at all. I never wanted it to stop and I want it back but if I stop my medications I will completely lose my mind.

I want out sooooo bad these days.  For me, it's resulted in many wasted years.  I don't have fictional characters but mine are all living breathing people that change over the years.  I know it's great for some people but not for me any more.  I only realized how bad it is for me recently.  I have many regrets unfortunately.  

What medication, if you don't mind saying, took them away??  I've been on anti depressant meds for years but I still find a way....I want to lose my MD....
