I am 33 and have been daydreaming all my life. Only since I was 12 did it start to become maladaptive. My worlds got thicker as I got older. I recently fully woken by my MDD just now. I look back at two decades of strong daydreaming. Right now, I am very afraid and beside myself, with no friends around to talk to. My family is quite disturbed by what I've been doing. My mom thinks I deserve the crummy life I have.

I thought you were really making progress.  What is happening?

I actually am making progress. I'm more awake and alive than before. I was just discussing what happened to me years ago. It took me a lot of recuperation afterwards. I'm feeling better just now.

I am 50 and have been doing it for as far back as I can recall. 

That's OK, I was an excessive daydreamer up until I approached my 30's. Reason I quit was due to life. I have to find ways to be self-supportive and out of my parent's hair.

I'm also 33 and have always had MD. I'm trying to find ways to stop it but I haven't had much success. I'm a member of a few MD forums and chat rooms, Reddit pages and the discord but I've not found anyone who has managed to totally stop. There have been a lot of suggestions but I haven't found one that truly helps me.

Since three or as long as I can remember.

Ever since I stopped daydreaming, the way my past worked out now makes so much sense. It's finally entering my head why everyone behaved how they did around me. When you live in your head, you don't care. Of course, I was growing and developing, so having been doing MDD, it was hard to make the right judgments. You tend to live in your own world during adolescence. That is before you finally get real world experience. When you become an adult, people suddenly act up on your secret habits, as you have to communicate very well and be with each other more than ever. I also expected so much for my future. I wanted anything to get married and start raising kids, as early as my twenties, but that never happened. MDD took full wind of my attention on the external world around me. I've met many people who apparently found me rather deaf, if my extreme silence didn't bother them. Unfortunately, you can dream about whatever you want, but you can't put in black and white. It will just lead to utter dissappointment.

I am 62 and I have been doing it since before I was in kindergarten. I still do it although these days it happens in short bursts rather than the hours at a time it used to be.

Met too. My MDD is now in short bursts. Although, my mind meditates for hours when I'm off work. I just don't live in alternate worlds anymore.
