Can't stop escaping reality

I can't stop daydreaming, it's consuming my life. All of my strongest hopes and dreams are in things that can't ever happen in reality and it causes me a lot of pain in my heart. It's called maladaptive daydreaming, as a formal diagnosis. I can't help but get sucked into this wonderland that isn't actually good for me. I'm not growing as a person, it's like a hugbox I've created for myself so that I don't have to deal with life. Going back and forth from fantasies to reality was fine before, but as of recent it's so painful to come back. Even if I just refuse to daydream, there's this huge hole in my heart where I know God is supposed to go, but I just can't do it for some reason. I want to, but I can't. I need help.
