Hey. So, I've been struggling with dp/dr for almost two months now. Mostly derealization. I find that when I spend a lot of time at home by myself, I'm allowed to obsess over my thoughts and symptoms and this fear accumulates and thrusts me into a negative thought process.

 

When I actually force myself to go out and socialize, regardless of the huge disconnect and emotional staleness, I realize that I'm engaging in "normal" activities and that in turn starts to reassure me in believing that I am sane, and that I am here. Because you realize that people see you completely normally, so then you start to feel that way about yourself. Especially since you don't have much of a chance to obsess over your symptoms when you're around other people. 

 

It works for me! not permanently, but it gives me a little peace of mind and a break from my hyper awareness. 

 

any quick fixes for you guys?

 

- much love
