I ALWAYS KNEW THAT MY WILD FANTASIES ARE NOT NORMAL COMPARED TO OTHER PEOPLE I HEARED ABOUT MD ONLY ABOUT THE LAST WEEK 

BASED ON WHAT I HAVE READ IT IS ALMOST A DISORDER THAT PROTECTS ME FROM ANOTHER MENTAL ILLNESS

AS FAR AS I REMEBER I HAVE BEEN DAY DREAMING I CAN NOT REMEMBER A PHASE OF MY LIFE WITHOUT DAY DREAMING BEING A PART OF IT

I KNOW THAT I NEED TO GET RID OF THIS HABIT OR AT LEAST MINIMIZE IT AS IT AFFECTS MY LIFE NEGATIVLY 

SO I HAVE LOTS OF QUISTIONS ABOUT IT HOPE YOU HELP ME FIND SOME ANSWERS 

I REMEBER IWAS 4 YEARS OLD AND DAYDREAMING DEEPLY ENOUGH TO NOT LISTEN TO THE OTHERS WHILE THEY WERE TALKING TO ME I ADMIT THAT MY CHILDHOOD WAS NOT HAPPY SO HERE IS MY FIRST QUETION WHAT SORT OF METAL ILLNESS THAT I COULD HAVE HAD IN MY AGE OF 4 OR IT WAS JUST CHILD IMAGINATION THAT DEVELOPED LATER TO BE THIS SELF DISTRUCTIVE HABIT?

MOST OF MY FANTASIES MAIN CHARACTERS ARE MALES THOUGH I AM A FEMALE AND I LIKE BEING FEMALE DOES THAT HAS ANY THING TO DO WITH MY SEXUALITY? DOES ANY OF MY FANTASIES HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH MY REAL PERSONALITY?

IF I STARTED TO MINIMIZE MY DAYDREAMING TIME HOW WOULD I BE FEELING AND FOR HOW LONG BEFORE I GET MY NORMAL LIFE BACK ?

I AM NOT SURE THAT I CAN GET RID OF MD COMPLETLY BECAUSE I NEED IT FOR MY PLANNING SKILLS AND ENHANCE MY CREATIVTY WOULD THOSE SKILS BE AFFECTED IF I STARTED TO MINIMIZE MY DAYDREAMING TIME ?

MY PLAN SOFAR IS TO OVERCROWD MY SCHEDULE AND DEAL WITH THE PRESSURE BY MEDITATION AND PRAYERS WOULD THAT BE HELPFUL OR IT WOULD PUSH ME HARDER TOWARD DAYDREAMING? 

DO I NEED TO SEE A PSYCHIATRIST OR I CAN HANDLE MYSELF ALONE ?

Hi, nice to hear from you @thaouista. I am new here too so I don't know the answers. Perhaps you can read more of people's posts? That's what I am doing so far. I see some people prefer the term 'immersive daydreaming' rather than 'maladaptive ' so I am going to look more into the differences in how people perceive and live with this. Good luck.

Dear Thaoupista, please use regular letters and not capital letters when writing, as it is considered "shouting" :-)

We can't give medical advice here, we are just here to share experiences.

If you have any concern about you sexuality, personality or health, it's a good idea to see a professional.

What I can say to you is that maladaptive daydreaming is an addiction and getting it under control won't damage your creativity, because MD is not creative fantasy, it's just a dysfunctional behavior.
