do you truly think that sometimes you do this to yourself

i havnt always had dp but ive always been anxious at the most simplest of things..
as a youngster sitting on the shop wall with my friends when we had a little bit of trouble with shop keepers id always be the first to run home shaking and crapping myself...
when there was the potential for a gang fight id be the first to crap myself
when it came to drinking for the first time i recall running home after about 2 sips of cheap cider
even now im doing it ,telling myself i shouldnt be doing this,i shouldnt be doing that,i feel as though im wrapping myself up in cotton wool,and this is really whats causing my major introspection....
anyone else feel they are causing alot of this anxiety themselves by overanalyzing every waking moment???

if i could learnt to somehow break the cycle of obsessive thinking, i could probably beat this.

I experience the core depersonalization symptoms virtually all the time (with moments of exception) and it seems to me that this is just the way my brain interprets and processes sensory information-–the way my eyes see, the way my memories are stored and retrieved.
I know this is not in the mainstream, especially in this forum, but I have tried to find the reasons why I would do this to myself, and after considerable time and effort–-I just don’t see them. I am just tired of trying to believe, with no real evidence, that I am in some way doing this to myself for some obscure reason.
And I see no reason to continue searching for the thing that was already there, the thing that the drugs triggered or uncovered, when I see no compelling evidence that such a thing even exists.
There are other explanations suggested by the dual causes of these same sets of symptoms: Drugs and Trauma. But I won’t start.
