Hi there,

This is my first time posting on wild minds network, but I just want you to know that there is hope.

I struggled with MDD for years, and I nearly failed many classes because of it. I feel like it developed in me because I was in a bad place at the time and the only positivity I found was in my dreams. So I would escape to them for many hours, like you. But as my situation improved, and I didn't have as much pressure from the outside world, I slowly began to stop, almost unconsciously. The amount of time I was dreaming dwindled. Until the day I realized "I didn't have a single daydream today."

My daydreams don't interfere with my daily life as much if at all, though it can sneak up on me.

I don't have any advice per se, but please believe me that one day things will get better. I believe in you.    :]

My advice to you is to STOP. I did this too often for years. I wanted much better things, but only got the worst of things out of MD. It made everybody think I'm a nutcase. And my family now thinks I should seek psychiatry.

Your lucky nobody knows about your daydreaming. I made it show and it was too embarrassing. It took me a few years of self-therapy to slow it to a stop. But I still catch myself wandering and staring into space, even when I am working and attending virtual meetings.

You just took the first step by admitting you have a problem. Also you see how your life is unmanageable. Now just believe you can change , read all the material out there on combating maladaptive daydreaming. Do the work one day at a time, and you will get better!
