Are You a Maladaptive Daydreamer? Test

Maladaptive daydreaming (MADD), or excessive daydreaming, can result in distress, can replace human interaction and might interfere with normal functioning. The higher your score on this quiz, the more likely it is that you have MADD. (Note: MADD is not currently a diagnosable condition, so it's really up to you whether you believe you have it or not. I am NOT a professional.)

    Do you daydream for at least four hours a day, whether idly or with full attention dedicated?

I hate this :((
I want to stop, but I can't
it feels like I'm not the one who's in control anymore, I started to daydream since I was a kid and now I just don't like it anymore, it hurts me realizing the things I daydream of for hours and hours and hours are still a daydream in the end of the day, and there's no way it's gonna be true.

I literally have to think of the same scenario every night, continue the story from where I left off the previous night, and it helps me to go to sleep. I also daydream during the day when I get stressed. For some reason it helps and idk how to stop it. 🌻, up until now I thought it was normal.

Two things-
1- if you do this you should go to t h e r a p y 🥲
2- MADD can lead to stuff like depression so be careful with how frequent you daydream😬

I can't stop this habit, even everyone said it's not good for my health. But I think only this can make me heal my pain of my life that happens to me.

Excessive daydreaming is not so bad if not problems with sleep😥

I always thought that I was the only one experiencing this. I've had this disorder since I was little I guess since elementary school . when I'm alone, especially in the bathroom and in my room, it's like making a filming set there.made me feel like one of the characters in the story. I'm not just silent and daydreaming. but I talk and act as if I really exist in that world. even I don't just play 1 character but all the characters there. I speak as if I were all the characters in my world. Talking, crying, laughing, and yes like we are communicating normally with someone and we are also characters in that world. Even when I was sitting in bed suddenly I started creating new stories and acting to do something that was in those stories (in the world I created). Besides that, I always feel like someone is watching me, such as from the air holes in my bathroom and room, or the air holes in the bedroom door and even later from my cell phone camera. I even closed it, because when I started to enter my world, I always thought that someone was watching me. it's a little scary in my opinion .. meaning the disturbance that I have. I used to think that it wouldn't matter, but now I'm 23 and it's pretty scary now.

I always thought I was alone with is weird because my life seems perfect, so it’s not like I daydreamed to cope with trauma. I always had a good life, but I was never really happy. I didn’t realize what I did was a problem until I didn’t want to do anything except daydream...I was just so unhappy with my life I wanted to pretend I wasn’t living it (if that makes any sense). I know how weird this sounds, but I would pretend to be my own characters which I added to books or movies. I thought it was normally but it really wasn’t...everyone daydreams, but I would literally look forward to times when I was alone so I could just imagine what it would be like to live a different life. I finally realized that I was so unhappy with myself and my life that I pretended to lead another one to feel happy. I know it can feel hopeless at times, but it does get better! It may sound cliche and stupid, but it is very true! I developed this problem when I was younger so the thing that truly got me through this was imagining my future. I came to the conclusion I had to live my truth so I could have one. Instead of pretending to be someone else, live your reality! I know this may sound harsh, but if anyone knows it’s me, don’t waste time wondering what could be! Your life isn’t over yet and there is always time to do the things you dream of!

I completely agree but it's not seen as a disorder or a problem it's seen as overly daydreaming with control over what happens and when it will stop and for me I can't really control either undefined

Hi I think I have maladaptive daydreaming as I now keep on noticing I am daydreaming more about difrent people including me sometimes it's if I was in a movie sometimes it what if this happens to me and I am now getting concerned about how it's getting in the way of my life I can't think straight most of the time as I am either daydreaming or think about the dream and it's abit distressing do I have it ?

Wow i feel kind of crazy i thought that i was the only person but no I'm not, anyway
I love my characters i don't want them to leave they are more better from real humans :)
Maybe cuz I'm the person who control them but i feel happy anyway
In the same way i feel kind of weirdness cuz there's no one in my life doing anything of what i do i mean I'm the only person who dream and act , ext
I know that I'm different i don't play or chat or doing another things with real humans i have my life my dreams just me and my people
So after reading comments i understand that
WE ARE DIFFERENT and it's nice
Yah not crazy
And that's enough
