I get so angry when someone interrupts a daydreaming session. They could be calling me on the phone, knocking on my door or doing something to get my attention, and my default reaction is anger. Followed by intense irritability that I’m being held back from getting back to my daydreaming.
I’ll either explode in anger that I’m being interrupted for something I consider to be trivial, or I’ll hold back on expressing my anger, but I’ll show that I’m extremely annoyed and irritated with the other party because I just want to get back to daydreaming.
It makes me feel like a terrible person. Do others deal with this? And how can these feelings be managed?

I’m the exact same way. That’s always been the case for me ever since I was little. Especially when your daydreams starts to get really good. It’s really annoying honestly. Definitely not alone in that.
Yes! I would get at the least very irritated. It took me a long time for me to decide to welcome the interruption as a way to start reducing my dream world immersion. That is something you would have to decide ahead of time, so that when the interruption comes, you remember, oh yeah i'm trying to do less of this. Then sometimes I would go with the interruption with an eye on the clock, like when will this be over?? don't feel like a terrible person, people get angry for way less things.
Also, it has helped me to realize I could return to it later, it wasn't going to go anywhere. The most successful strategy so far for me is to have certain times I daydream, like during exercise or going to sleep at night. Like having a boundary around it. That way I am getting more engaged in my real life.
