So I’m a teen and I have been daydreaming my entire life or at least I think I have. My family moved country when I was young and I think because I felt so lonely all the time, I used maladaptive daydreaming as a coping mechanism. I have to choose a degree course but I’m what to do because I’ve spent so much time daydreaming that I don’t have any interests. How do you find what your interested in outside daydreaming because I’m really struggling and It’s giving me depression.

In addition to all the harm MD does, it is kinda useful that it gives an opportunity to get to know ourselves better. What do you see yourself doing in your daydreams? If you never daydream about your future or anything career related you could start now. Just imagine yourself in possible alternatives and see how they make you feel.
I would recommend trying new things. I know it can be scary, especially when you don't know anyone. But if you have time, go out and explore, and do research. What about your favorite subject in school? that could be a starting point. For example, my favorite subject in school is English. I love to read and write. It's one of my passions so I am looking for future jobs that will allow me to do things I love. And don't stress about it too much!
