Maladaptive daydreaming, for starters, is addictive. Everything is happening there and then, You hardly have any idea of reality. You make facial expressions i.e grin, laugh or even feel like crying , which will be noticed by the people around you , who will then rate you “crazy” or “weird” , leading you social isolation, which further pushes you into daydreaming.
