"Ok but sorry I need to quote this like:
"I'm a witch and in ritual we often say we are "in a time that is no time, a place that is no place, we are between the worlds." That is the truest description of my life. And that is where…"
"Oh wow, that's really interesting! If you don't mind me asking, can I ask what about your daydreaming led to the loss of those jobs? I daydream a lot too, and trying to fight it definitely doesn't work for me. Also, not that you have…"

And about my therapist, I was honestly so surprised. I had never talked about my MD before with previous therapists (I felt very ashamed and "crazy" for having it, and back then I…"
I must say it's only recently that I have been able to "keep" my MD somewhat in check. And of course, there are still times when I go into MD without realizing it (music is an especially strong trigger for me). Chronic…"
It is exactly the same for me, but I just want to share something my therapist told me that I thought might benefit us all. She said it's absolutely normal to experience a "relapse" of MD when we are isolated, but it…"
