Hey guys this is exactly what I am talking about. Like I will see a email I am meant to reply to and I just am that slow cognitively, that I just overlook it. I don't mean to....it just happens. I feel for everyone of you I really do as this has brought me to my knees and I sometimes think I will never get up but then I realise that I have felt better before and nothing lasts forever so I hold on. There is no easy way out I know that for sure.
Don't ever give up guys....don't see DP/DR as an enemy as then its stronger in your mind then and you will notice it more.....somehow, someway we have to carry on alongside it. I swear that is the key to getting rid of it as I had it twice before this and I carried on working and doing stuff and it went away within a week.
I had the same issue when i was working. I struggled to read the email in the first placeX. Then, after maybe 4 times going over it, I just couldn't think of what I was supposed to do with the information. And much similar stuff. Have no idea how ineven kept that job as I barely did anything. I think they felt sorry for me. Anyways, I realized I couldn't put up with work anymore. Just ask emotional distance is unfair in trying to have a romantic relationship, it's unfair to some company that they should pay me for doing practically nothing.
