 One thing I've learnt about MD is the way it can shutdown your ability to feel and process your real emotions. Often I have been told that I have a "poker face" and that it is difficult to sense the…Continue

"I think we are very hungry of emotions. And the more we crave for them, the more we need to daydream them, and nothing in the real world compares to them. Maybe it's like eating everyday super-sugary food, and not being able to appreciate more…"

Emotional disconnect and MD

 One thing I've learnt about MD is the way it can shutdown your ability to feel and process your real emotions. Often I have been told that I have a "poker face" and that it is difficult to sense the emotion in what I am saying when speaking to others. Having had a therapy session today, it was made clear that there is a complete disconnect with how I feel... I often cannot name the emotion I am feeling at any given moment.

"All I would add is that there is absolutely nothing "insane" about anything you said. And that in order to get the most out of therapy, we have to be open with the therapist about what's going on. It doesn't help to conceal…"

"Hi Camoran,  I understand what you mean - initially it was the stress that the intrusive and negative DD had caused me to wake up and see how this is impacting my overall mood, emotional and even physical state. Becoming aware of how ambivalent…"

"Hi Martha,  Yes, I have definitely relapsed during lockdown. Being at home for such a long period of time has caused me to indulge more in daydreaming especially as I have had not much to do to break up my day. I have noticed that it comes more…"

"Our experience has always been a mix. We experienced a lot of sustained trauma early in life so our daydreaming was both escapism and what we now understand to be our body spirits trying to make sense of painful experiences we were struggling to…"

"It's turned out different for us. We managed to shift it into a positive feedback loop that helps us self-actualize in shared reality. But I understand that's not the norm, and I think with the level of shaming most people experience with…"

"The worsening you experienced over the course of a decade was the only way it could go if left unchecked. At its core it's a self-perpetuating feedback loop of simulating scenarios in your head which allow you to experience feelings that the…"

"That is a very interesting post and resonates with me. I am a lot older than you, but I have come to a lot of the same conclusions gradually that you seem to have come to fairly young. That the daydreams are a way to express strong emotion that…"
