Feel free to let it loose here. It's very healing to just release it. Swear, yell, show us your anger, your sadness, your troubles. Let that inner darkness deep within go and let it flow! Doesn't have to be DP/DR related...free your demons but in an exorcism kind of way, not encouraging to make it worse! I trust you get the idea icon_mrgreen.gif

I just want to sleep forever, but sleep, simple as the idea may be, does not come easily.  Otherwise I wouldn't mind having a monk-like existence in a monastery or something, just reading philosophy or whatever interests me all day, with only simple expectations and get away from the gossipy, WASPy, judgmental and superficial nonsense that currently envelops my present existence.

Interested in why you chose to post a venting rage / anger thread in "the Bright Side" section?

Don't therapists and psychologists explore such subjects and bring them into the light of conscious, the darker contents of one's mind? It's a form of healing to let things out. Suppressing things end up eating you inside. Lux E Tenebris, a Latin saying meaning Light Out of Darkness. If you attempt to transcend into Heaven without addressing the lower Hell, then you'll fall.

True enough. Still feels out of place to me, but I don't know which sub forum would be better either.

Good idea for a thread, at any rate. Especially since there's really nowhere to just be able to vent without having to hear advice and criticism.

Sometimes I think I would rather have a terminal illness than dpdr. At least then I could enjoy the rest of my life

I feel like DP/DR is a terminal illness.  Just a very very slowly progressing, excruciatingly painful one.

I've been getting into these deep and intense nostalgic trances as of lately. I'll focus my mind on memories of first love, the sense of exploration and happiness I had as a child. It'll feel very dreamy and fairy tale-esque, almost bittersweet in that it'll give me really warm feelings within my stomach but also sadness in that those days are gone and I'll never experience them again or be able to go back and make it better. It make me intensely miss people who are no longer in my life such as family that has passed away and old friends who I no longer talk to. Also feelings of normalcy that I long for when I wasn't going through DP/DR, severe depression and overwhelming anxiety. I just find myself sitting and replaying montages of happy moments when I was younger on loop within my head now. I need to focus on the present instead of the past but it's become so hard since I rarely know what it feels like to be happy anymore so I have to look back for it.

I do this too, though I've given up on the present moment. The present is at best dull and unrewarding and at worse absolutely terrifying. I've allowed myself to reminisce about better experiences and fantasizing about some magic cure or time-traveling device than just constantly be in agonizing misery.
