Therapy, specifically talk therapy, may be something you want to look into. You don't have to worry about not opening up to a therapist since that's what they're there for. Check with your parents to make sure your health insurance would cover therapy visits, and start looking into it. If it turns out that you do have some sort of mental illness that is causing this, remember that you are still loved and that mental illness doesn't make you a monster or broken. Mental illness is hard to deal with, but there's probably a lot more people out there like you than you think. Good luck.
This is not normal behavior, no. I really think you need to see a therapist to figure out what's going on. Writing stories and being deeply interested in fictional characters is fine, but you can take things too far and, as you say, start to have trouble differentiating between fiction and reality. Moreover, daydreaming is fine and normal, but "zoning out a lot" isn't. Most people with creative imaginations can get heavily involved in them, but if your imaginative life and your real life are colliding as you describe, you need to figure out what's going on. It could be simply that you are just TOO imaginative and that you need to find ways to rein in your imagination, creativity, and daydreaming where appropriate. But a professional could help you explore this.
It’s common, but not medically “normal.” It’s great that you reconize this behavior, but if it’s increasingly getting in the way of your happiness you should see a psychologist for a proper diagnosis and move on with that. When I was in highschool I’d almost have the opposite; where multiple friends would tell me about crazy things you don’t normally forget that we did from a few weeks ago to a few years back, and I would have no idea it was me they were talking about unless they told me. My memory has improved a little since then as ive gotten over trama and abuse from back then, so hopefully your issue will clear up as well.
I’m scared I might have the same thing
