Maladaptive daydreaming
I am 23 years old and Maladaptive daydreaming , pure ocd and my past have ruined my life that i can't have fun or enjoy anymore. I am scared and try to overanalyze about my future. I can't live in present. I left antidepressants and don't know what else should i do. My past mistakes and daydreaming too much from childhood that i use to believe is true was a biggest mistake of my life. I achieved nothing that i used to dream about. I don't need motivation but i don't know what to do in my life. Why do i think that everything is fake? I don't enjoy things. What should i do?
