Set times for it, be strict about it.
Also, try to get some "fun/leisure" in your life, it helps combat the urge to MD.

Maladaptive Daydreaming was my whole life, I was told it was a very bad thing to do and so tried very hard to stop. Now I have constant dissociation and feel like killing myself.

It is not always a bad thing, it can be a coping mechanism and as long as it doesn't intefere with your socialness and work/studies or just basic day to day things, its a good coping mechanism as things go.
I have started to try to bring it back into my life for the same reason you've mentioned.

Yes I Do! 100% all of Somer Eli findings will be related to me! And I assume for you too, if thats why you're asking... I am conducting a study at university in order to help provoke the idea that this can be a mental disorder ie if it effects day to day life (which it does me) but my doctors refuses to help! If you have any questions on this feel free to contact me ! whether you suffer with it or just plain curious ! x

Yes I do. It hasn't affected my life negatively and I can somewhat control it so I don't know if it's still maladaptive daydreaming or if there's a separate name. But when I researched my symptoms maladaptive daydreaming seemed to be the closest thing. If anyone wants to, I would love to talk. But yes, at the moment I do think I have it. I had it for as long as I can remember.
