Her Campus Features Piece on MD

UIC student, Tayo Omoniyi, shares her experience with MD

Her Campus is an online magazine created by, and catering to, college aged women. Recently in the sites mental health section a short personal piece on Maladaptive Daydreaming was published. Here is an excerpt from the article:

In my daydreams, I had set up my own universe, filled with my own characters, settings, and plots. I could write a dozen novels from the recesses of my old daydreams. Some of my daydreams were also inspired by my real life. However, the daydreams caused a lot of distraction and kept me from really interacting with the world around me. I found myself detaching when I was in lecture, in conversation with someone else, and difficulty concentrating even on everyday tasks.
