The definition of maladaptive daydreaming often always highlights, the fact, that those daydreaming are aware they are daydreaming, and are aware of their external environment. Now I find that sometimes I go so deep into my dds that I am am not aware of the lost time, when I begun to lose time, or what has happened around me.  I can get up leave the living room to go to the kitchen ( a very short walk), next thing I know I'll be staring inside the fridge wondering how I got there and why I am there? In other words I lose all the in between. I don't remember leaving the couch, its as if I should still be in front of the t.v., but am not. So are you aware? Sometimes, all the time, or depends?

@The1andonlyAbber That is exactly what I mean. This is exactly how it is for me. Except it has been happening a lot.

I often daydream while walking from class to class at school. Sometimes class will end, I'll start daydreaming (or simply think deeply about and/or invent new things for my imaginary world, which I think also sort of counts as daydreaming), and then suddenly I'll be halfway to my next class, with no memory of walking there or even packing up my things after the last class ended. This only happens rarely, though.

Yes I am stressed, that's the story of my life. You make a good point maybe my stress level has something to do with my losing time and awareness? Next time I'll have to try and pay more attention.

Always aware then you definitely have great control! Yeah its the same for me time does pass faster in dd world.

An illusion? Hmm...maybe you're right.

Being aware is an illusion anyway.

Interesting. I am always aware, but I do realise that time passes a lot faster when I am in dd world than when I am actively participating in my real life.

Are you really stressed? I find that my MD changes depending on how stressed I am.
