Maladaptive daydreaming: Here’s why you find yourself in regular, vivid daydream scenarios and what it means

GLAMOUR Publishes a Piece on Maladaptive Daydreaming

Glamour is an American woman’s magazine in publication since 1939. This month freelance journalist Fiona Ward published a piece on MD in the magazines online newsletter. Below is an excerpt:

Most experts say that if your day-to-day life is not hindered by your daydreams, then there’s no need to worry. 

MD can be debilitating – some can feel an ‘urgency’ to daydream, almost as though it is an addiction. This under-researched condition is often connected to dissociative disorder, where sufferers can feel detached from the real world or like they are another person. 

If you’re concerned you may be a maladaptive daydreamer, there is an online platform, Wild Minds Network, where others have shared their stories. If you feel you need help, consult your doctor – getting in contact with a specialist in dissociative disorders may also be helpful.
