Hey everyone this is my first post in here,i find all your stories interesting and familiar..

i had to habit of going to my own universe since about 6 and it never bothered me to much,i actually enjoy it and think its a awesome ability..i DD for about 30min a day in average but sometimes it can be up to 2hours.i dont feel addicted to it although i sometimes have a strong urge to do it like after watching a cool show etc..

so my question is those of you who stopped or lessen your MDD, did you notice a improvement in your daily life?your functioning?social skills?

i dont do well at jobs and most of it is because im dreamy while work(i daydream at work but just about everyday stuff like all people do,and not zone out into my own universe etc) and i think alot of my social problems is because of my inattentiveness too..so i really wonder did stopping DDing helped you be more attentive during the day?

Here is my rambling response.  I have lessened my MD in some respects but I can go on DD binge if I have a particularly anxiety invoking event in my life.    I DD more on the weekends so my therapist had advised me to start scheduling outings with friends and family on the weekends. So of course, my social connections and social skills improve because I am interacting with real people on these outings.  By building real relationships, it enhances my life.  Sometimes I may DD at night which can reduce my sleep.  I am most attentive when I have had a full night of sleep. I am also more productive if I plan out the night before what I am going to do that day.  I also try to get the task that I have to get done that day the first thing.  At work, I try to focus on how the task I am doing at hand is helping someone.  I get motivated when I feel like I am helping someone so the task does not seem meaningless and insignificant and this helps prevent me from drifting off into the DD world.  I try to get done my "real world" responsibilities so I can later DD if I want.  Also lately if  I feel the urge to DD during the day when I am at work, I will go here and write a blog or chat with someone.  If I go into a DD scenario that could take up 2 hours of my time potentially so a quick chat or comment here will take less time and I am connecting with others like myself who are trying to manage their MD so they can still have a life.   I have had periods where I have stopped MD but that is usually when my "real world" responsibilities take up all my time and then I find later I will go on a DD binge when the "real world" responsibilities are done.  Sometimes after DD, I have a kind of foggy feeling afterwards but then it subsides and I can get back on track and be attentive.  I don't have ADHD or anything like that.

I can't offer an answer because I haven't been able to stop or lessen my MD.
