My name is kat and I just found out today that I suffer from maladaptive daydreaming. I've been doing it for months now and I've always had a strong imagination since childhood but now it's getting in the way of my studies and my everyday life. I now daydream for hours on end and it's usually based on my real life situations sometimes but mostly depends on music. I really need to stop but I don't know how. If someone could please help me get my life back on track I will be very grateful
I'm in the same situation. Right now I have exams in school and instead of studying or sleeping I spend hours daydreaming. I've thought about writing a book about my daydreams so I can turn them into something productive. It would be good to talk with someone with the same experience. Maybe we can help each other?
Welcome, Kat! When I was in school/college I found it easier to get my work and study done if I did it in a more public space, library, cafe, common areas etc. Can be a little distracting but still works better than being somewhere private you can DD freely.
