Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
For the first time in my life- I have no real obsessive urge to daydream . I did something very extreme - I went on a vacation by myself , I had to share a room with a room mate (a stranger) and was also forced to interact with a group 24/7 for about 3 weeks.

I just joined and for a long time I just did not know what was wrong with me.
Then I found out there was a name for my problem after many years.
MDD has worn out its welcome in my book yet it still feels so good. I want to stop
