hey, I am soo glad I finally found something that really connects to my problem. Every word you said on your website felt like you were talking about me. I have daydreaming problems ever since I was 13 now I just turned 17 so it's been 5 years that I suffered through this disorder. Sometimes I feel like I have metal issues. I didnt know I wasn't the only one until I read your website. Every time realized this disorder is taking over me I wished I had someone to talk to, I wish someone could hear me and help me out but I'm too embarrassed to share this with my friends and specially family because I know they will never get me. I stoped talking to ALL my friends from the past 3 months the only person I barley talk to is my older sister she Always tries to take me out cause she thinks I'm depressed but when I go out I get a headache from talking to people Nd I can't wait to come home and lay on my bed listen to music and continue day dreaming. I tried soo many times to get away with it. I tried to exercise a lot, I tried to make plans for everyday, I tried writing everything in my mind to make mySelf realize how bad this is.... But I cant put up with it longer than a week after few days I get lazy I guess I give up and start day dreaming again. I don't sleep a lot and dont eat at all. I've tried everything but I still can't help it. None my friends or family members know what I'm going through I can't share this with them but at this point even though I know this is a waste of time but
still can't get Away with it. I read everything you talked about And you've been through exactly what I am goin through right now so can you please help me out of this?

It is your culture that has failed you, there is nothing physiologically wrong with a person experiencing this, not really. I am sure you are bright and intelligent young woman. I am similar age to you and have had this problem since 16

i had been suffering from maladaptive daydreaming since the time i remember. but i realized much later that i was actually suffering from this problem.i had this problem from my childhood and was unnoticed but by the end of my high school my social life which wasn't great either suffered even more and i just wanted to shut out myself from the world and hated to have coversations with anyone.it was like i was in a parallel world of daydreams even when i was on the streets or college later on.and then when i slowly started to face difficulties or realized that i was facing difficulties i thought something was wrong. i was diagnosed with depression and then anxiety but the cause of anxiety was my daydreams which tired my nervous system like hell.and then this hatred for daydreams and then slowly myself increased and even then there was no decrease in daydreams as all of them were not asked or wanted by me.they kind of started on their own.this problem had affected my academics,my social life and had forced me to go through hell. but now i finally know the problem , and trying my best to get my life back on track.would post on the progress and improvements in near future and wishing that all those suffering from this get out of it quickly.

Thank you so much for this. I have, like you, daydreamed...excessively...for as long as I can remember. There was a lot of shouting and condescension and judgement in my childhood. I never had a single specific fantasy world, but I did consistently imagine a better, more perfect version of myself...and as I've gotten older, daydreaming has interfered more and more with my day to day life...I've started graduate studies and it's a huge distraction for me now. I thought for a few years that I must have ADHD, and then more recently started seeing a therapist who raised the possibility of a dissociative disorder...after finding this site I finally feel like I've found people who actually understand what I'm talking about and what I'm going through. I still think it's possibile that maladaptive daydreaming lies somewhere on the mild end of the dissociative spectrum, but I couldn't relate to people talking about PTSD or anxiety-based amnesia. I sometimes avoid it by keeping myself insanely busy, but the second something emotionally trying occurs I slip back into it and waste entire days daydreaming. So much of what you've said in your video is so like what I've been through. Thank you so much for being strong enough to share this with us. It really means the world to me to know that I'm not alone.
