Gonna say this long story short:
I've had this for as long as I can remember, I can't self-diagnose myself yet cause I have to wait till I get help and I'm young. For now, I've had lots of imaginations since I was little, It has caused me issues talking to people in my neighborhood properly but I'm comfortable talking with childhood friends and classmates cause they make me feel happy. Also I'm really organized but sometimes if I haven't talked to a person for some time then I would forget their names. I'm currently trying to control myself and I have mastered it a bit but its still there.
Why can't you self diagnose yourself? All of us are self diagnosed, given that most health professionals don't even know about MD, let alone how to diagnose it.
Make sure that what you're trying to get rid of is just the maladaptive portion of daydreaming, not daydreaming itself. Daydreaming is an important function and trying to get rid of it completely is basically impossible. What have you been doing to control it so far?
Don't give up what you want most for what you want now.

The reason is that I can't assume that I have the condition till I get some medical help but I know I do have it, its just that I don't wanna jump to conclusions so I have to wait till something happens.
Its unfortunate that not enough people know about it.
As MD isn't a recognised condition we have all had to self diagnose ourselves but if you can see a reason that you might be using excessive daydreaming to cope with it is well worth trying to get some professional help with dealing with what might be the underlying cause.
