Hi I would like to remain anonymous so call me Sloane please, I'm 19 and I've had aspergers all my life but I had recently found out about Maladaptive Day Dreaming today and it got me really worried. I've excessively daydreamed all my life but I'm at a point where it doesnt interfere with anything. When I work, I end up daydreaming but it would never take me away from my job and I am able to have conversations and make time with friends without it interfering as well but I know that I've daydreamed almost everyday. I'm if there was a cause if I do have MD like if it starts from a trauma or if it's genetic but regardless its something that happens in my day to day life.
I live in a verbally abusive home and I mostly daydream to cope with my mother taking all anger out on me. It's helped me when I get anxiety. I just don't know if I should do anything about it because it's not effecting my life negatively and this is something I've done for almost all my life. No one really knows that this happens to me other than my boyfriend and mother hence why I am anonymous but I don't feel comfortable going to my mom since she's not equipped with venting.
