Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I know that this take on MDD is nothing new but I was reading a book on alcoholic addiction and I would say that
MDD is pretty close to alcoholism. Meaning that some of us have lost complete control and dwell 24/7 in a DD.
Behind the scenes however, alot of us are unaware of co-existing depression /anxiety related disorders that fuel MDD.
Willpower could not help us because we are bio- chemically set up to self-medicate through MDD.We NEED to DD or else we get irritable/antsy etc. This is different from those of us can go without DD and not get upset for say 2 weeks.I think we have to fix the underlying problem before we can normally DD.
Just my 2 cents
