Maladaptive day dreaming. PLEASE HELP
Does anyone else maladaptive daydream? I’ve done it since I was a kid and now a days OCD is making me feel so guilty for it. I dream about scenarios that make me feel like a rush if serotonin if that makes sense but the things I dream about aren’t things that align with my values now and I feel terrible about it. I would never actually do these things but it’s like I automatically start thinking about these scenarios especially when music is playing and it’s easy to drift off and think. Everything I dream about I would not be doing in real life but I feel disgusting and terrible for thinking these things. I feel like with intrusive thoughts you can help but think about them but when it comes to maladaptive day dreaming I think about these things in purpose? But I don’t want too but I’ve just always done it since I was little. Please tell me I’m not alone. Does anyone else experience it and if so how do I not feel bad about this.
