I just realized I may have maladaptive daydreaming disorder.
This is how I procrastinate.
I avoid working because I am afraid of the work. I can sit in front of my work and still not complete it because of daydreaming. It’s a coping mechanism but it’s harming my productivity.
This is what causes me anxiety.
I need to get control of the impulse to time travel with my thoughts. I need to stay in the present moment.
Will talk to my therapist about it next visit.
I know I can overcome this, now that I realize I have it.
