If I could fix one problem right now with my dp, it would def be my talking

 

i remember before dp, if someone talked to me, its like, i would feel something in my heart to say or something would pop up in my head and i would just say it

 

now when someone talks to me, i honestly, always, feel like saying nothing, like i have to force myself to talk, like always feel like saying nothing, dont feel anything in my heart to say, nothing pops up in my head

 

its almost like.. i cant focus on what they said to me maybe?

 

like maybe there talking but im just not comprehending, i dont know..

 

anyone know what im talking about? anyone gotten past this part?

 

anyways

Yeah I had read that the pre-frontal cortex is responsible for that kind of communication/bonding that is an evolved part particularly in mammals and when that part is fucked, it affects communication processes. (Mammals evolved to recognize facial expressions and communicate within groups unlike other animals) I get what you mean. I've always been an introvert but this is different. It is like certain things are not processing and so no response is conjured.


I'd say emotional numbness + the tenseness I feel all over my body and bruxism while sleeping. It's like there is something that needs to be let out and when it does I'll be fine. Things will make sense. Suffering will end.


I had an episode a while back where I went to put out the trash, on my way back inside I felt bad, like my mid was just filled with this ominous bad feeling (i get paranoid as when these things happen i always feel it around my heart and I really hope the dp and bruxism don't have an affect on my heart , - anyway) before I got inside I just sat on a chair outside and the feeling just slowly crept up increasing, just tremendous physical pain (my intuition tells me this is what my body actually feels like without the usual numbness of dp) and suddenly my whole body out of nowhere got really really sick, I was in so much discomfort, I threw up from the pain, I sat and could barely move. Every movement hurt and my jaw was contracting non stop, I'm sure it was a discharge of tension, afterwards the world looked more clear...my skin was more feeling, I felt more calm. Idk but stuff like that give me my ideas of what dp is.

I sit here and wish for dp to leave but whenever a moment comes where I can feel it leaving and some reality seeps in, I'm overwhelmed and my mind instinctively blocks it again because surely your mind knows what you can  and cant handle.

Idk

No identity/self, I thought having numbed emotions was bad until my brain decided to forget myself, Walking around with noone driving with no connection to anything and the world is the worst,your home isnt a home and your family just look like noone.
Really hoping I get out of this soon.

Feeling disconnected when I go out into the world. Like when I am in a shop and I don't feel like I'm in my body. And when I'm outside on a sunny day and feel like I could fall off the earth because I am so ungrounded. I just want to feel connected and not the floating/detached sensations.

the reason that you do not have an identity is because your emotions are numbed. The reason that people without DP can connect with their identity, their family, and their homes is because of emotional responses and emotional memory. You and I have very similar symptoms. Seen people get their emotions and identity back. Trial and error.

I'd have to put in for the severe cognitive impairment.  All these other issues stink to hell as well, but my number one fear with my state is being permanently institutionalized, or getting in trouble for unintentionally shoplifting, or having to deal with law enforcement in other ways with this condition, or getting shot by a cop because I'm so unaware of what's going on around me for some reason.  So if that problem went away, then at least I could be minimally function and survive on my own.  The emotional disconnect and everything else has to take a back seat.

 

But I do think that all the symptoms I have are intimately connected to one another, such that improvement or decline in one domain will result in improvement or decline in the other aspects of this illness.

Now I’m confused as to what I have. B/c I can connect with people and I have emotions, I just physically feel disconnected instead of mentally

DP can come in many varieties. Do you mean physically disconnected from yourself? Because feeling out of body and physically disconnected are common symptoms however I don’t have those types of symptoms often mainly just numb emotions and fragmented thought process.
