I have problem getting up before completing my sleep, whenever I stay up late and then try to get up from sleep with a help of an alarm, i first get into consciousness and then tell myself how am going to get up from my bed after I have this daydream session only to find myself fall unconscious due to sleep again. Then even If I don't sleep during the daydream session I can't get off the bed and do my 'really mandatory work' in real life before spending the time on my bed enslaved to these… Continue

So in reality i am surrounded by 4 walls with no attention or recognition whatsover but then my daydreams act as some portal to an another world where I recieve attention,admiration and love .
Tell me how hard it is to make the decision to not go there while i can, and instead focus in the real world where its boring now?
I think when power is given it is often misused for ones own selfish needs.
some of us were given the gift of immersive daydreaming to help us in times of… Continue

Will seeing a psychologist help or should i only see a psychiatrist?
It is hindering my academic performance badly
I do not want to see a psychologist until i turn into an adult by myself since my mom is narcissistic that is she will use my disorder against me to hurt me.btw i believe she already knows that i am abnormal.
But then at… Continue

1)stopped indulging in fiction books ( which has been my childhood habit) and movies too i suppose
2)And then when i was 13-14 i used to sleep almost the entire day, every day for maybe approx 1 and a half year
( i was depressed at that time )
So I think doing the above did reduce my "desire" for maladaptive daydreaming .
But still i daydream uncontrollably.
So i infer my daydreaming could be a comorbid with some other disorder rather than just being a… Continue

I am aware how people describe maladaptive daydreaming as an addiction ,I mysyelf have had this form but currently i experience it as an uncontrollable lapse in concentration
,I no longer feel pleasure from it.
Anyone else like me?
