"Your situation is  exactly like what was mine when I was 17. I can tell you how to get rid of MD, but trust me it's not an intelligent thing to do. First of all always remember you should never feel guilty for your MD. It's the best…"

Should I go for therapy?

I'm a 17 year old and MD has been severely affecting my studies for the past two years. I need bring down my daydreaming time to just a few hours per day so that I can give that time to studies.I have tried searching for possible remedies but couldn't find any. Regarding therapists or psychologists most people wrote that their therapist didn't knew about MD and wasn't able to help much. So what should I do? Should I try meditation and other things to improve my condition. (If yes then please…See More

Hello Harshit. I'm a new member myself and this is my first interaction.

i started MDD when i was about 4. I am 30 now and i can say i have lived half a life. I have always been the smartest in my entire school, but as i grew older my MDD became worse and i started failing classes. as a result i sank deeper and deeper into depression and came close to suicide. I guess what i am trying to say from my own experience is that i think you should address the problem early on so that it wouldn't leave such scarring consequences on your future.

- Regarding Therapists and Psychiatrists, it is true that this is a new field and few specialists are aware of it, but i recommend following up with one anyway in case it kept progressing, if it is possible, someone who is up to date on recent medical literature and published data. 

- Studying in public places (libraries, cafe, at a friend's house...) was helpful for me to focus on my studies. When i am alone, i would leave post-it notes all over the room that say MALADOPTIVE to remind myself to get back to reality. i also wrote notes on my hands or my books to get myself back to studying when i felt i was letting go of reality. Another thing i used to do when i found it hard to concentrate, i would incorporate my studies in my daydreams, like i would imagine myself reciting the subject infront of the whole school (that way you have to actually read it!) or that i was tutoring a friend.

- Try to identify and avoid the triggers to your daydreams.

- Another escape i found was in books and games. when i sense that i have been daydreaming too long i would force myself to  read a book to get my mind away from the dream. 

- Later on, the best terminator of my daydreams was work. I intentionally became a workaholic. (But you don"t have to do that. It wasn't really healthy)

here are some resources that i found online that address the issue, hopefully they will be helpful for better understanding:
