"Living in a Dream | Laura Weinstein | [email protected]"

28 May 2020 - 03:37 PM

This video is from 2018 and may have been posted already. Deeza shared it with the chat.

"Depersonalization, a dissociative symptom often looked over by the mental health community and profession, will be experienced by 50% of the population once in their lifetime, while only 2% of the population will suffer from depersonalization disorder chronically. Laura brings light to this mental disorder by sharing her 11 year battle with depersonalization disorder. Laura Weinstein is a student journalist, as well as a vegan, LGBTQ+, and feminist activist from Coral Springs, Florida. She is the opinion editor of North Broward’s online newspaper Brainwash, where she publishes everything from movie reviews to controversial articles on questioning the foundation of personal ethics. Laura is an officer for the Gay Straight Alliance of NBPS, and runs social media for the club as well. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx"

"Luna is diagnosed with Complex PTSD (C_PTSD). Throughout her life she has felt outside of her body and not human. After seeking help Luna’s therapist explained that this is known as derealization and sometimes occurs in people who have faced trauma. Luna is now ready to share her story with the world but fears many won’t believe her."


How many therapists are helpful?

Today. my new therapist who I thought was going to help me told me that I need to take my medicine and think more positive thoughts. This was a revelation to me, because for the past decade I've been giving my medicine to the dog and trying to think the most negative thoughts I could.

DP and feeling out of touch with reality

09 December 2019 - 10:46 PM

We know DP is not the same as psychosis or insanity, though some psychotic and insane people have DP. Why, then, can DP make people feel so out of touch with reality? Is it their primary issues which cause them to feel out of touch with reality, but they mistakenly blame DP? Interested in your thoughts on this.
