Article: Maladaptive Daydreaming; A dangerous type of daydreaming
The Postdale Daily is a Ugandan media company that publishes articles on news, politics, business, tech and sometimes mental health. Recently contributor, Mayende Collins Israel, put out a short piece on Maladaptive Daydreaming, following up on a request from a reader. Below is an excerpt:
Last Friday (Apr. 1) we published an article on Mental Health and after sharing it on several social media platforms, it apparently ended up in a WhatsApp group where a member after reading reached out to me with a question saying, “I’m kindly requesting for your help If possible please, How can I reduce or fight against maladaptive daydreaming please sir? because it’s seriously eating me off.”
When the term maladaptive daydreaming showed up, one could think perhaps it was April Fools Day joke. Reason being that Maladaptive Daydreaming is not listed among Mental Health though it is one of them. I’m not an expert so I had to do some thorough research before replying.https://postdale.com/maladaptive-daydreaming-a-dangerous-type-of-daydreaming/
