I recently saw a quiz that was titled, "Are You a Maladaptive Daydreamer?" and I was like, hey, what's that? So I clicked on the link and went through the quiz. The result said that I answered the highest on every question and am most certainly a maladaptive daydreamer. I decided to do some more research on the topic and realized that it described my entire life. I don't think I was ever as happy as I was when I saw that. I know a lot of people say this, but I always thought it was just me and that I was doing something wrong, but now I know that I'm not alone and that this is a real, legitimate thing.
The only problem is, I don't know how to tell my parents. I've read that the best thing to do is to talk to a therapist, but I can't really do that without telling my parents. I'm so afraid of their reactions. I'm afraid that they'll brush it off as my being a hypochondriac and being silly and that I can just stop my daydreams like they're nothing, but I can't. Has anyone else had a hard time telling their parents or a loved one that they could please give me some advice? I don't know what to do...
