Where wild minds come to rest

Started up again with a new therapist. Just finished first session and didn't bring up daydreaming. Why is it so hard to admit this?

Not bringing it up immediately isn't really wrong. It depends on whether you trust that therapist enough to reveal that issue. Wait and see, and when you're confident enough (you'll know when you are) bring it up. It may even happen naturally, like you're talking about something else and it culminates into MDD. Take your time and have patience, so long as you don't hesitate beyond necessity you'll be fine.

I agree. You should tell your doc about MDD when you feel comfortable enough. I didn't mention many important things at my first several sessions. And even now after half a year of therapy, even though I opened up to my doc a lot, I don't describe my dd-s in details, she only know the very fact that I have them in my head and ofc I say when their intensity goes up.

I think it's totally okay not to tell the first session. Do you know your therapist before? Anyway I think you have to build trust first. I think I wouldn't mention MDD upfront too. But maybe you will manage to mention some clues like having problems to focus on something or whatever... 

I think we feel embarassed about MDD. More known mental issues like depression are more accepted by society. But daydreaming is just a childish way of wasting time.

Maybe search for a scientific paper describing MDD and bring it to the sessions. Just to show in case you manage to mention MDD or your therapist asks the right questions... A paper maybe let you feel more secure that your terapist's gonna believe and listen.
