I'm not really sure how to use this site, this is the first time I've really joined a forum, unless you count tumblr. The past two weeks really highlighted some troubles I've been having, with anxiety around my abusive mother and abandonment issues in romantic and platonic relationships. Also found out maladaptive daydreaming/excessive daydreaming is a thing and is typically not considered "normal" so that was a shock for me. I can't seem to find a therapist based on price alone, so all of this has been a real struggle.

I am new to this site also, but from what I have seen it is friendly and supportive. I’m sorry you’re having a hard time. All I can say is try to be kind to yourself.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

I've always daydreamed excessively. It makes me much happier than real life. And what is 'normal' anyway? Just because most people don't do it, it doesn't mean it's a bad thing. Most people have relationships and most people have a job, but that doesn't mean that celibacy and unemployment are bad in themselves. Loneliness and financial struggles are a problem, but they're not a given just because you happen to be single and unemployed.

Equally, the problem with daydreaming isn't the daydreaming itself, but to what extent, if any, it hinders and restricts your day to day life. If you're still able to do what you need to do and if you have an intellectual understanding of what's real and what isn't, I don't think daydreaming is a bad thing. Writers could be considered to spend a large portions of their lives daydreaming and I doubt many people have an issue with that.
