Sharing a Tool to help with Focus for Work/Study

I think many of you also have trouble staying focused when you are trying to work or study.

I find that sometimes I go into a "MDD tailspin" when I have a lot of work/ or important work to do. I remember distinctly that when it came to studying I was always distracted by my MDD. I also have an underlying hyper vigilance that usually gets in the way.

I found this online site/ company called focus@will

Here are some links:…

Playing a game to get SUPERBETTER

Hi Everyone

Just wanted to share, I've been playing a free online game called "Superbetter". It was invented by game designers under the guidance of health specialists to help people improve personal resilience (i.e build up optimism and motivation).

They consist of quick and simple exercises that help increase emotional well-being. It has different "packages" for depression, anxiety, addiction etc. I've been playing it under the depression package, its easy to…

Kindly Requesting Help with Finding these Ebooks related to Emotional Healing/Trauma and Understanding

Hi All

I've been reading a lot on the effects of childhood trauma disassociation and connection. I have a reading list related to these issues and have sifted through the internet but was unable to find downloadable pdf/ epub version of these books. (Yes I'm the type who tries not to buy ebooks if I can get them for free). Was wondering if anyone had access to the following:

1) Born for Love: Why Empathy is Essential and…

Movie based on MD: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Coming Dec 2013

Hi All

Some people here are familiar with the story "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" originally written by James Thurber in 1939. It's about a guy who works for a publishing company and lives in elaborate fantasy worlds but eventually goes through a real life adventure. 

I strongly suspect that the author understood MD very well. Anyway it was made into a movie in 1947, but the modern remake with Ben Stiller as the main character Walter Mitty is due to come out…

Need help calming down? Give this a try

I'm not sure how many of you also suffer from compulsive rapid cycle MD episodes, when over a period of days or over a course of a week your MD's are more frequent and obsessively intense. When I am caught up in one of those cycles I have great difficulty trying to break out of the loop.

I know that music is a prominent trigger for MD, but I recently found a track called "weightless" by Marconi Union, its 8 minutes long…

Aller Anfang ist Schwer- All Beginnings Are Difficult

I love that saying, its simple, all-encompassing and most of all very true.

Since I've acknowledged that I have MD, and connected with the idea that I am not a single/ individual anomaly with this condition. I have begun to approach my life very differently.

For the past year, I've been traveling the world (mostly Europe), learning new languages (I am of immigrant background originally so I speak several languages already) and challenging myself to do new and different things.…

How do you feel when you catch others M.Ding?

Today during my lunch break I walked through a crowd of people and spotted one well dressed gentlemen very clearly talking to himself. Mimicking facial expressions etc while he was walking along....it really mad me feel better.

I thought well at least I am clearly not alone and I am not MDing now so whatever attention he gets from people around us, at least it's diverted away from me.

Has anyone caught someone else random stranger or someone you know blatantly MDing?

Acting out on your frustration in MD

Yesterday, I had a baffling encounter, it was supposed to be part job interview/ part information interview except the woman sitting across the boardroom table from me was either deeply inept or very stoned (or both?). It shocked me to the core because I am a lot more qualified than she is and yet not only was she patronizing, but she was literally making annoying childish whining sounds as I tried to ask her basic questions about the company. 

I felt like I was being…

Why I hate Barney the purple dinosour....

I'm not sure what the generational breakdown of the members on this site are. But I'm sure that many of you share experiences of vivid fantasy role play as a child. I remember distinctly that when I was little I used to wonder if playing pretend with invisible things was a strange and abnormal thing, I also recall watching episode upon episode of Barney the purple dinosaur...remember how he encouraged kids (almost compulsively and subliminally) to use their imagination? "Barney is a purple…
