Where wild minds come to rest

Just got this diagnosis, on top of PTSD and BPD. I've never told my therapist about my daydreaming, but one of the criteria is using fantasy as a form of escapism to interrupt painful thoughts. This definitely applied to me and explains why I do this. Found that interesting considering I never mentioned my daydreaming.

Off to daydream right now...had a bad day, again.

Dag! We need to be more recognized! When I was little doctors tried to put me on pills... Didn't work at all, I just felt very strange for the first day or so I took them after that they stopped trying to diagnose me..

My therapist only managed to give me some pills and I felt so dazed and drugged . Didn't like it, I think they don't understand nothing about daydreamers .I wish you luck Karen.

Yeah, a lot of people think MD is really Avoidant Personality Disorder, but it's not.  You might have MD as well, but it's up to you to figure that out because it's not an official diagnosis yet.  If you do want to tell your therapist about it, I recommend taking copies of the articles done on it as well as the studies done.  Make sure to state that it's been studied by real doctors who believe in it.  If your therapist is unwilling to hear about it, I recommend finding another one.  Good luck.
