Is MDD blocking our future?


I was listening to a radio show and the guy was talking about what we visualize or daydream becomes our future. I have always heard what you think or ponder the most will come to pass.

This may keep us from having the motivation to go on the better things and may stop the “projection” of synchronicity. Some believe your subconscious will send out “requests” for the “universe” to bring to reality through chance encounters.  Not saying I believe that but it does make sense that MDD could be limiting us from reaching our potential. What do you think?

Are we coping? I guess we are in our own way, in differing degrees. As a functioning MDer what is your day like? How do you cope? I found a youtube video from a young girl who is struggling with MD. I can really relate to her feelings of despair. I’ve been in that dark place and return there from time to time. But in between those lowest times I do cope. I manage to go to work, to maintain a marriage. It is often a matter of putting one foot in front of the other, not knowing if…
