Should I be daydreaming so much?????

I've been daydreaming excessively and I began to worry about it so I looked it up and came across MD (Maladaptive daydreaming). I started out just imagining me talking to someone a friend from school, neighbor, family member usually a person I would see the next day. I imagined what our conversation would be like. This wasn't  bad, BUT THEN it got so bad that they were no longer conversations, but a whole other world! With many characters and different events. I would laugh, cry, argue and for long periods of time.  This was all in my head right until I Started Whispering and soon enough I WOULD ACT IT OUT! I tried to stop, because I was FREAKING MYSELF out and I did for a while.


My will-power eventually crumbled and I started to get up really late. I was awake, but I stayed in bed daydreaming for 3-4 hours.  I tried to keep it all in my head so I began waking up late everyday for a while and I thought it was okay, YOU KNOW I  AT-LEAST WASN'T ACTING IT OUT.  Then I couldn't sleep, because my  brain wouldn't shut off and guess what I was doing in my head.  Yup, you guessed it I WAS DAYDREAMING! So I wasn't just waking up late know  because of my daydreaming I was also not  falling a sleep either, because I was daydreaming. I would eventually fall asleep out of exhaustion. 

I kept this up for a while, but what was left of my will-power is know gone and I'm ACTING OUT AGAIN!!! 

I want to stop, but I don't know how. Almost anything triggers it music, books, movies, friends, problems.  PLEASE HELP any advice will be appreciated.

 Do you also daydreaming?  Please tell about your experience;  how you started and how are you copping with it.

I also have family problems and I don't have a good relationship with my parents. I'm mostly scared for my dads reaction! He wouldn't take this lightly and I really don't want to be treated as if their where something wrong with me.  -Molly

I also have conversations with people I know and on rare occasions the conversations goes similar to what I imagined, but most of the time it doesn't. Other times its people I dont't know. -Mynx

I have the same scenarios as you! I usually use real people and imagine what are conversations would be like! It's just awkward and disappointing when I actually talk to them and the conversation doesn't happen like my daydream.

ik i only joined today but the only person that knows about me having MD (besides people on this page) is my best friend and i didnt know what it was called until about three days ago! I get bored a lot, so i just pretend to go to my room to read and daydream there. I dont know if i want to try therapy yet either cuz a lot of stuff is happening in my family right now and i dont want to worry them or have them pay money for it.

 I usually try to stay away from triggers, but then I get so bored that my own boredom triggers it. jajaja Thanks you! I really want to try therapy I guess the hard part will be telling my parents. Yikes! I can only imagine what they'll think. :)

Hi jenny im molly :). ive been daydreaming as long as i can remember and ik how you feel. even now im daydreaming what your response is going to be lol. Ive been told that therapy can help a lot with MD. there are a lot of amazing people on this site that can help you with your situation. I try to limit how long i daydream for though its hard for me to when its triggered by something.
