Do you feel like you wasted some of your life in your daydreaming?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Silver Swan Jun 30, 2018. 3 Replies

I have been daydreaming for years. When I say years, I mean I cant remember when I started. Of recently, my daydreaming has started to make me depressed. In my daydreams, I dream of real people that…Continue

Has anyone felt more and more disconnected with reality?

Recently, it seems that I have lived in my head more than the real world. I daydream everyday for several hours about old schoolmates and being closer to them than I actually was. As days pass, I am…Continue

When the going gets tough- The side effects of maladaptive daydreaming

I thought I would one day reach the age where I no longer have to daydream. I thought that one day I would be able to express my true self with courage and optimism of the future and what it would hold. However, time passed and my draydreams hadnt stopped but only evolved. I wish I had time to go back and not live in my daydream but I cant. I am 26 and I fear that I have wasted so much time not doing a lot of things I was supposed to be doing. I feel like I dont have any goals. I feel like I…See More

"Yes! I can relate to your story. I too was disillusioned into thinking that my daydreams can become true. It sounds so crazy. Dreams are just dreams, right? Thing is, to overcome this, I keep on thinking of real people's reactions to my day…"

Do you feel like you wasted some of your life in your daydreaming?

I have been daydreaming for years. When I say years, I mean I cant remember when I started. Of recently, my daydreaming has started to make me depressed. In my daydreams, I dream of real people that I know and played out my interactions with them. What is more disheartening is that I often missed out on my real life. It was like I was so desperate to be friends with the characters in my daydreams (who are real people but not people that I am close to) that I missed out on the friends I actually…See More

Hello everyone. I hope everyone is doing well.

I never thought I will get to the point that I am really fed up with holding on to things. I love daydreaming because its comforting but at this point I am sick of it. I have held onto people and things that no longer serve me. I have dwelt so much in the past that I cant focus on my future. I have no idea if the career path I am following is actually the path I want to be in. I have no idea why I have so much hate against people…

Lost track, time while living in the clouds

Hello everyone. I am writing to share my experience as it may help some of you that deal with the issue. 

I have been dealing with maladaptive daydreaming for quite a few years now even though I came across the term only this year.  I am now 25 years old and I no longer want to continue to suffer with this issue. 

Problem, social anxiety and misdiagnosis

As a child I used to suffer from social anxiety in which I was very shy and would often keep to myself. Though I would…
