Silver Swan replied to Eanna's discussion MDD affecting real life relationships, how do I start getting daydreaming under control?
"I found living with MDD was a gut-wrenching and disheartening ordeal. I used to daydream as a small kid myself, and did believe I'd grow out of it. It finally slowed down to a quit as I approached my thirties, I guess, because I really had no…"

Talking to my imagination

This is so embarrassing, I was in the bathroom and my mom was calling me. As I shouted back and opened the door, I heard her words, "Are you talking to yourself or are you listing to me? I saw my first hummingbird." This isn't the first, I've met countless people who noticed I do this, then much later in another situation, they'll bring it up.Have any of you had a similar experience?See More

Silver Swan replied to Sakshi's discussion Have you felt the MD get worse with age?

Seeking more tangible things

Posted on August 16, 2018 at 11:07am 0 Comments

I literally spent nearly 20 years day dreaming about needing a boyfriend, but just today, I feel that was a scary thing to do.

I don't know many people who've done this! They basically just payed attention to others and got the partner they wanted, in a super outgoing manner. I wonder if maybe I blocked myself from people too much by diving into MDD. I was never attracted to many real people throughout my life, as they weren't as favorable as my MDD characters. So, I wondered…

Expressing yourself is everything

Posted on August 13, 2018 at 12:17pm 0 Comments

Everybody use to gossip about me and taunt me in school for a simple reason: I didn't talk at all. I was your shy awkward type who didn't ever fit in. I had a couple friends at a time, but not too many. Everybody else was extremely chatty, super outgoing and extrovert—"and neurotypical." I was the only student that had autism spectrum disorder, so I was challenged with communicating and interacting. So my school and college job experiences were rather traumatic. Even into my…

I discuss my life situations, but only in my MDD

Posted on July 23, 2018 at 9:02am 0 Comments

Whenever I want to express how I feel about my life situations, I discuss them with imaginary friends, because they actually listen to me without getting snarky. I find that real people don't understand my form of language or they're like "Then, do something something about it." Actually, real people wonder why I've gotten into that situation in the first place, or they can clearly see what's evident, snip at me what's going to happen and what I better do in future. It's as if in…

It shows

I don't know how you guys do it! I try everything to conceal my day dreaming. I will put on startled, worried, wary or perplexed expressions to hide it. I'll even move my eyes around and bite my lips. People will still look right at my eyes and maybe even into them! I guess, they still wonder what goes on in my head. If I make a slip up at home and even work, people will think, 'is she wondering?'
