Hey everybody I have been on a long search to discover all the awesome things I feel and my list is getting big. As of now I have dp,dr, ocd, anxiety, eye floaters (not rare I don't beleive), oras (don't think that's rare either), and now i think i have synesthesia and/or ideathesia. It's hard to test.

For example when I think of the following number I see a certain color not literally but that number equals that color to me
6-haven't found the right color

Also for a long time as long as I can remember when I think of any idea or even just having a converstation I will see a picture instantly for a split second. For example my friend described a relationship with her and a friend I instantly thought of stairs outside with rails on either side. Idk why.

Also some objects, picture, etc. bring me to a specefic idea, picture, memory.
It's so hard to describe this one.

This thread reminds me a certain place where I work haha super crazy stuff

Also periods of time like weeks, days, months, seconds, years, etc. also remind me two d models I see inside my head

All this is really hard to describe but i'm trying to find myself and I hope I can shed some light into this.

Thanks ahead everybody. :) I'm so excited (that last sentence reminded me of a specific place in a video game).

I have synesthesia as well. Have had it my whole life. I have number form and hearing/touch synesthesia. I see numbers/ dates/ months of the year in number lines. My hearing and sense of touch overlap and I feel what I hear. If noises are sudden I get painful electric shocks in my fingers. My mom and sister have synesthesia as well and have different manifestations of it. My sister, for example associates colors with tastes.

That's pretty cool I can relate to the time line part. For me it's not just a line but there are steep slopes, ridges, brakes, etc. It's super hard to draw though. I've felt this my whole life and I think i'm just focussing on it to much. I'll just make sure to pay attention to it more when I see them. Do you visiually see the number lines or are they in your minds eye.

Yeah I guess so I just don't know anythin different. Compared to other synesthetes I barely have it. I'm super visual and know I know why. It's kind of interesting to think of how very rare both dp/dr and synesthesia alone are but together it's really cool to think about. Although I hate my dp/dr often, finding i had synesthesia yesturday put me on overload.

If I have this then surely it is related with the hive mind and amsr. I find Omega 3's really help keep the brain health up. There are great ASMR'tists here http://www.asmrstudio.com

old thread but interesting

I've been using hypnosis to gain some control over my dissociation and have a better practical understanding of trance states, as a result it seems to have induced a form of synesthesia.
