This is a really old post, but I am a new member and wanted to share because I too experience this.Until @chant2012 mentioned it in my diary earlier today I have never heard of "Maladaptive Daydreaming" but I have serious problems with maladapative daydreaming, and whilst writing this post I see someone else has mentioned it before. I also have intrusive thoughts and distorted cognitions as well.
How could I have never heard of it?
Do you have problems with it? What do you do to work to fix yourself?
You are not alone! As you can see.This is a really old post, but I am a new member and wanted to share because I too experience this.
Having good conversations with a loving and caring person can reduce the effects over a period of time.
Good idea. I think it was also because I got up at 2am in the morning and did a 8am - 4pm course and then also did another 4 hours study. I was over tired I put myself to bed at about 7pm and slept 10 hours.Smaller steps?
From maladaptive daydreaming, to distracting daydreaming, or productive/delightful daydreaming?
