Calm, grounded, & satisfied (I'm having a good day).




Glad to hear that, what made that day a good day?

For Some Odd Reason Every time I'm In My Bedroom Things Seem To Normal Out(somewhat). I Don't Get It, I guess My Mind Feels Safe When I'm Inside And Comfortable. When I'm Outside That's When The Derealization Starts Up, I Guess That's When My Mind Goes "Oh Shit! I'm In Danger!". I Guess That's The Norm For Everyone
Suffering From DP/DR.

I can definitely relate to this.


I agree with John, that this has a lot do with anxiety and the difference you feel between your bedroom and outside is the difference between being in the presence of others and being alone.

My dude u gotta get the fuck outa ur house, go to the store, buy a drink, ask the Hindu dude what's going on, go to the mall, buy a shirt, idk man just get out and live, when I get weird feelings I just think it's unreal feelings and that's what it is, just say it's unreal which it is and keep going, idk what kinda dp u have, I've learned some tricks maybe I can help, like working I felt weird or even walking, I use to really over analyze sounds but I fixed all of that, now just talking im not so great, cus it use to just flow but I gotta try really hard, but it's all good I've been getting better at it, but what do u struggle with? And dude u gotta get out!! Hit the gym man, fuck it, do anything


That was a bit of an exaggeration, I do get out of the house every day and often go on walks and bike rides to pass time. I go to class 2 or 3 days a week.


I've had DP/DR for 7 years, although the past year my DP/DR & anxiety has been pretty severe ever since I began tapering off of clonazepam (aka klonopin). 


I struggle with having the emotional equivalence of a potato, as well as the attention span of a potato; I feel nothing and it's extremely hard for me to focus on anything.  I'm constantly in a perpetually exhausted state; on top of my DP/DR there is tons of anxiety, so I am always very restless.  It's really hard to get out of bed in the morning because I am so physically tired. I wouldn't even say I'm depressed... I'm just exhausted. I have friends that I see a few times a week at the college I go to but talking face to face with people trips me out because eye contact makes me uncomfortable when I am anxious (Which is whenever I am around others).


All in all, I have a very racing/unfocused mind that makes it difficult to partake in life because of the lethargy.


I agree that the best thing to do is just stop thinking and go out and live.  Sometimes it can be difficult to do some of the things I'd like to do.


I appreciate your support and motivation, thank you for that.
