I have had maladaptive daydreaming for as long as I can remember(since preschool) I generally keep it a secret except I once told my mother, who found me some info so I now no that there are others like me. I also told my therapist, but she said I didn't have it since I haven't gone through trauma. But my parents used to fight a lot when I was little and my father wasn't abusive but at times he was extremely severe. I think do this as an escape, b/c anytime I am confronted I go deeper into my daydreams. I don't really want to share exactly what they're about, but a lot of the times it's a lonely person who really wants to fit in but can't no matter how hard they try. I am pretty sure that is because I'm lonely. I don't really have friends outside my family. People don't hate me at school but I don't fit in. When I daydream, i feel a little less alone. I just feel like there are a lot of emotions that I can't express sometimes.
