Hi I'm Anna, I'm 19 and I've been maladaptive daydreaming since I can remember. I did have a very traumatic and out of control childhood so it makes sense that daydreaming became a coping mechanism of mine. However, my life is becoming much more stable and the coping mechanism has become more of a nuisance. I tend to think of situations or people that make me feel out of control and make scenarios in my head to conquer them...if that makes any sense. I tend to pace around my room and often will move my mouth as if I'm talking and listening to music. Anyways, I hope this is a good first step to conquering my MDD habits.
