I am new to this site and discussing my daydreaming is something new to me.  I figured I would make the most of this opportunity and read, comment, encourage, learn, etc.  So I have been reading through different discussions that interest or apply to me and now my anxiety is through the roof and I feel like crying.  I feel like I have jumped into the ocean with no floatation device.  Ha!  My daydreaming is at a minimum right now.  Guess anxiety lessens the daydreaming.  I don't understand why this is making me so anxious.  It bothers me that it bothers me.  It bothers me that I don't understand why this freaks me out so much.  Daydreaming doesn't make me anxious, but talking and reading  about it does.

All of us seem to have different things that help and hinder us.

If reading and talking about dd makes you feel worse you could to decide either to explore why that happens,it may give you some useful answers. Or do exactly the opposite and choose not to read/talk about it any more so you can put away that horrible anxiety.

Do you know what things make you feel better?

Anyway ,whatever you choose to do.Welcome to the site.I hope you find whatever you need here.

 This site isn't meant to make you anxious hun! I'm not sure if it's helped me or worried me more, actually, so I guess I can see why, maybe just knowing that it's (nearly) considered an actual mental disorder, which I doubt anyone would want, is probably what freaks you out, I think.

I had the same thing sometimes. It was mostly when, (usually assembly/quiet class) I was DDing about either something sexual or commenting about someone in my head, I tried to stop, or, at least change subject.

Maybe reading all of the stories makes it more real and not something that you just have in your head. I was so relieved when I found out I wasn't the only one but I'd been so used to feeling alone for so long that it was weird to be just one of many. I was always secretly worried that people could read my mind and they somehow knew what I was thinking and now here's this website full of people who do kinda know what I'm thinking. But it's okay because we are all in it together and it is a safe place.

Believe me, this site can help you through tough times and celebrate with you through good times.  There are probably no other friends to whom you can go for this support.  And there are lots of smart, creative people here who have weathered many storms & made their lives good, with lots of tips.  I've been a therapist for many years, but can't imagine anyone more helpful than the people I have found here.

This is somewhat true for me too. I feel very overwhelmed and a little anxious when I go through the discussions/blog posts. I've been trying to participate as much as I can. I think its a combination of things- exhilarating to know that there are many others like us, but at the same time the sharing of people's deepest secrets is a little frightening. I'm not sure why this, but participating in the forum will help.

Well we are all kind of jumping into the ocean with no floating devise. What would be nice to have on this board would be a good psychologist/therapist that understands MD that could and would be willing to guide us through the process professionally. As it is we are sort of all in the ocean together grasping for the floatation devise, searching all around for it blindfolded, half sinking half swimming.......we need the rescue ship!

This site isn't meant to make you feel worse.  You're not alone.  There are lots of people going through this with you.  Together we're going to figure out how to manage and make the best of this.  It's a good thing.  I hope you feel better.
