Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I've recently been looking into other mental disorders and the very similar effects some have compared with MD's symptoms. For example, the general symptoms of ADHD match up very well with the most commonly reported symptoms reported of MD, such as procrastinating, habitual daydreaming (obviously), poor focusing ability, etc. I'm just curious as to what you all feel about the similarities among disorders, what might influence those, individual experiences/diagnoses.
Last year I made an interview with Dr Soffer Dudek and she talked about the connections between MD and other disorders, also ADHD, you can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOFX609hAyM&t=1795s
There are similarities but also overlapping symptoms. It means that sometimes people are diagnosed with ADHD but they could have MD instead because the criteria for diagnosis are not set for finding MD yet.
