My names Tiara, Im from eastern USA and I have been maladaptive daydreaming since I was about 16. When I was younger, I was free to go off on these day dreams as much as I wanted. However, I have a husband and kid now so the day dreaming has become a bit problematic. Sometimes it is triggered by music but most of the time it just happens. When I fight it I usually end up either waking up in the middle of the night or not being able to sleep at all. Luckily, my house has an office where I can hide away until the episode stops. I know this condition looks different on different people but mine is usually triggered by silence, boredom, movies, or music. Im not really sure of what Im hoping to get out of being in this forum. I just want things to be better.
