Where wild minds come to rest

Im not suggesting anyone do something theyre not comfortable with, or not ready for. But im just thinking what if more people told others about MDD. I personally think that MDD is much more common then any of us realize. For example, as a child, i use to be a compulisve liar. In order to make my dreams feel more real to me, i would tell others about them. I eventually grew out of doing that, thank god, but recently ive been thinking compulsive liars are very well known. Maybe more of them have MDD like me, theyve just never grown out of lying. The point is, if more people with MDD came out and told the right people, it could help steer us in the right direction for help. I know its not easy. It took me 17 years just to finally admit it to myself. And then another three years to finally tell my therapist. Which lead me to research MDD. And today, ive just told a psychiatrist, who gave me some very helpful suggestions and explanations for this strange addiction i have. I havent felt this hopeful in a long time. Im staritng to put the peices of my life together. I couldnt have done that if i hadnt been completely honest witht he right people. I hope and pray that those of you who are ready can tell the right people, and ask for help. The more people do that, the more the word gets out about MDD. I truely believe knowledge leads to change.

By the way going to a psycologist or a psychiatrist and not telling about your daydreaming is the most stupid thing you can do. Its like going to a doctor and not showing the part of your body that hurt most. Its a waste of time and money.

I am thinking the same thing. Actually do not say "I am MDD its a disorder... and so on". Except if you are speaking to a counsellor. But to friend and family say "I am daydreaming a lot, it is a problem from me". And let them choose how much they want to care. Even if they do not think it is anything to be concern with you have been wining something: you are not afraid they may find out anymore. And I never met anyone thinking I am a freak or changing their behaviour after I told them what daydreaming is. People do react to what they can see or experience and they can experience nothing of your daydreaming. But if you can say, "Sorry I was not lessening to you, I was just daydreaming again” or “No I didn’t call you, I thought about it but I was daydreaming so I forgot” it will make things easier to everybody.

Perhaps one day I will meet someone who says “Are you daydreaming too?” and I will not be alone. But I have to be consequent and keep speaking about it. Yes, the main problem is that most people do not relate.

He told me about having abnormal theata(I think that's the word he used) in my brain. He said daydreaming is something that is extremly easy for him to do too with his add. He found out about his theata levels after an EEG. He suggested I look into getting some neurofeedback which is what I plan to do. Also changing my diet ad excersize will defenetly help too he said.

i agree, my family wouldnt take it seriously at all. And when i actually mustard up enough courage to tell my therapist, he was so surpirsed by what i told him, he actually looked up "excessive daydreaming" and found out about MDD. The right people are anyone that can help. They are out there, we just have to find them.

I guess it would help.but our family probably wouldnt believe it,and therapists who doesnt know about it isnt helpfull. Who are the right people?
