Where wild minds come to rest

It feels like I have become more sad and emotional ever since discovering what maladaptive daydreaming is. I find myself crying a lot more. Is this normal? Shouldn't I be happy that I discovered the answer to my problems to whole life?

I am sure it is normal. I was in shock for  while when I found out what was wrong with me but then happy that I had others to talk to and didn't feel alone anymore. Give it time you will be happy now that you have a good support group around you.

It is hard to tell. While discovering MD is likely to be a significant step-up, life going on around you might have other effects on your emotion that cannot be told in this single event. If you insist this is the reason solely leading to your sadness, it maybe due to your awareness of the negatives of MD, and the recent upcoming unsuccessful attempts to cope with your problem. Identifying the problem is only the first step, coping it is the hard one.

Btw, please spare my  bad English as an Asian. I love to communicate, but everytime after I send my own reply, I always have doubts on whether my context is good enough to be understood clearly.

In addition to the excellent comments above.   MD is a huge part of our lives.  Finding out what a false friend it is is comparable to finding out that someone you love no longer loved you back, or even never loved you.  You may be experiencing something akin to mourning a loss of innocence.
