I've had problems with daydreaming for years now. I had lyme undiagnosed for 7 years and did 3 years on treatment. A few years ago I found something called "maladaptive daydreaming disorder". It sounded exactly what i was experiencing!! Except...
Now that i'm off treatment and still having some problems, I've been noticing a few things. While on treatment I did have mental problems and this past year in college I started seeing a counselor/therapist at school. She brought up if there was a possibility of the Daydreaming being connected to Lyme/health problems? I thought about
it but since i stopped seeing my original Lyme doctor and my second Lyme doctor was pretty bad, I had no one to ask.
But now I've slowly been getting some mental problems returning (which i will make another post for it) but the daydreaming has kind of returned but in a new way. I hate saying this but its almost like a delusion. Like I'm slowly not noticing the difference between reality and daydreams. I've been noticing its worse or more apparent after I eat something that will provoke Candida so I thought it was Candida. But now other symptoms are creeping up, again only when i eat bad, so idk if its possibly Candida, Lyme, or toxins that is causing this daydreaming problem.

Does anyone experience excessive daydreaming? (and yes it is different from brain fog and depersonalization).
