I just discovered that this is a real issue, and that I am not alone in my obsession thanks to this site. I have been MDing since middle school at least, I try not to count younger years because I believe most children (especially only-child kids) probably day dream often.
I dont plan on admitting the type of DDs I have but its been a habit of mine to create a senario whenever I like someone. someone I've met or someone I've seen and will never meet, I'll have the same set of 3 scenarios play out for months. if I lose interest in one person, another immediately takes place and starts the story over. I do it on my drives home, or sitting at my desk but I MUST do it in order to fall asleep. most of the time I want to nap just so I can do it. I've always been insecure about it, but since I discovered its name, Maladaptive Daydreaming, I have at least admitted it to my boyfriend who after years of dating had no clue.

I'm exactly the same its scary how much this sounds like me. as I've gotten older its gotten better.

I do the same thing. A lot of days I spend the whole day impatiently wishing for the time it's "acceptable" to go to bed, so that I can just curl up and DD.
