1) Just because I look completely "normal" to you, does not therefore mean that I feel it inside! Never judge a book by its cover.

 

2) The DP makes me really forgetful, & no; it's not the same as when you get 'a little bit forgetful now & then'.

 

3) The DP also makes me emotionally blunted, & again no; it's not because "I'm not close to people" that I feel this way.

 

4) Please stop ignoring what I say about my condition & then judging me based on your ignorant assumptions!

 

5) Please give me the benefit of the doubt as regards my condition & just accept it, even if you can't fully understand it.

 

6) I'm not a fricking retard, I'm not crazy, I just feel that way; so do not treat me as such. It's only my perceptions that are warped, not me.

 

7) Telling me to 'pull my socks up' etc isn't helpful, but it is a good way of making me REALLY FRUSTRATED WITH YOU! :rolleyes:

 

 

 

:P

 

 

 

PS: Follow this link & read from page 202 under the heading DPD and the Family.

Love this!!

1.Like some have said I'm really forgetful..to the point where I make a note of everything.

2.I get really spaced out and flat with emotions sometimes...I'm not mad or trying to be rude I'm just in this fog.

3.Sometimes I don't want to hold a conversation...panic attacks set in and I get really nervous sometimes

4.Try to understand that all day everyday it's like being in a dream or constantly high...not fun at all

5.Try to understand where I'm coming from...don't write it off as just something in my head...if you're going to be my give support

There's tons of other stuff I could be but the main thing people need to understand is that this sucks...it feel like you're trap in your own body at times and can be very very scary

It took everything and ruined my life

I think the biggest thing I want people to understand is that I'm not ok. I've been dealing with this for awhile now and even though I get up every single day and take care of my son and my responsibilities, I'm still not ok. I've only told 3 people about this and they all say the same thing: "you seen fine to me". The thoughts won't shut off and I can't get past the whole not feeling real thing. I'm going hell. I feel like I'm missing out on everything, and I hate when they say I'm not missing much.



People tell me the same thing."you don't seem different to me maybe a little more quiet".My girlfriend basically broke up with me over this...said she couldn't read me and the I should little emotions and was always flat.I tried to tell her that this is the hardest thing I ever had to deal with and that I'm seriously trying right now.She didn't believe in doctors or meds and thought that it's just an imbalance that could be corrected with the right diet and a change in thought patterens along with other stuff.Said meds only mask the problem.I agree to some extent.Hell when I was with her I got to a place with DR where life wasn't that bad with...think I was seriously starting to recover.Then I set myself way back listening to s friend about shrooms.Now I'm back at square one and determined to beat this...and to help as many people along the way as I can

I agree with all this.
 
I would also add that I specifically want people to know that I struggle with this EVERY minute of EVERY day, not in episodes. Granted the severity changes, but at no point in any given day do I feel 'normal' (although what 'normal' is can be debated).



I agree.This isn't like a panic attack where it last 5-10 mins at a time.No no this is constant.Everyday all day.With only a small bit of relief in between.For me,it's horrible at the start of the day.I wake in a deep fog and slowly through the day I adjust.Once I woke up and everything was normal.I think.Anyways it felt that way and I almost cried.I think I pushed it away because I was just trying to focus and just be whole for once.After I showered that morning it was DR busy as usual

The real problem with DP is not the symptoms...Its the persistence of the symptoms...Its constant...We get no breaks from it....

I agree. It'd be easier if we only "felt" it once in a while. "Feeling" it constantly makes it unbearable

If we could trade bodies and brains for the day you would have a very different opinion of what this is like to deal with. You might even crap your pants.

 

I most certainly didn't choose to feel this way.

 

You don't have to speak to me like a 2 year old, I am not stupid......I learned to count past potato a long time ago.

 

Just because I sit on the couch and watch TV to distract my mind doesn't mean I am lazy.

 

I would love to be able to do the things everyone else does like being more social, travel, go on adventures....It really isn't because I am content to sit here with my thumb up my a$$ that I don't do them.

 

One good day doesn't mean I am cured.
