Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
This is my first post in a long time. Decided to go back into therapy for MD, as the daydreaming has been getting a little overwhelming...multiple emotional breakdowns in the past few months. My "intake" appointment with the psychologist went somewhat unexpectedly in that she has no idea where to send me. She says I don't have depression or anxiety, and they've never had anyone that she knows of with a case of maladaptive daydreaming.
Recent research out of Eli Somer's lab shows it may be linked to OCD. Is anyone getting treatment like that and found it helpful? I mentioned 'dissociation' as that is also cited as a clinical condition in Somer's work. Anyone have any luck finding a therapist that was actually able to treat them? What has your experience been in therapy? Stay strong my friends :).
