I Can't Believe Other Pekoe Do This Too.

I never knew this was a real thing. I really thought I was the only person who did it. Ever since I can remember, I've imagined myself as being a different person. I would "pretend" I was someone better looking and more interesting. Sometimes even the opposite gender. But all of it is in my head - on the outside I'm just regular boring me. I don't know why I do it, and I've never told anyone until now. I figured it was just some weird thing that I do, but sometimes I think I restrict myself by doing it. I think that I would rather live these exciting lives that I create rather than my real one. How do you learn to accept yourself and not have to daydream anymore?

I also have MD and what helped me on an emotional level is figuring out why I have it. Everything happens for a reason, I found that the most logical reason I have it is because of my Epilepsy. My Epilepsy is triggered by concentration and I firmly believe that my brain developed MD as a way of protecting itself from seizures by not allowing me to concentrate. I don't believe there is away to get rid of it unless you get rid of the cause. In my case there is surgery to fix Epilepsy but its extremely risky and expensive so I won't be going that route. I wish you the best of luck I hope this helped.
