In Topic: Dissociation from mental illness itself?

25 October 2020 - 09:19 PM

Oh yeah, and you also get freaked out whenever you seem to manifest things, or experience coincidences. This is all psychological selection bias my friend. Once again, this is a psychotic thought process, I mean that in the nicest and most honest way possible.

In Topic: Dissociation from mental illness itself?

Really told myself I would get off this forum but I have to reply. I relate a lot to the fact that you don't "feel" anything towards the idea that you have a mental illness. I think in my case, it is merely the result of severe depersonalization to the extent that I have become detached from my own thoughts. Thus when I think to myself "this is all just DPDR" that thought itself suffers from the dissociation, so I can't connect to it. 


I am not a psychologist, but I am going to be honest and say you may suffer from some form of psychosis, and definitely OCD. I made this judgement from reading your other posts. I may not remember them correctly, and I am sorry but I couldn't be fucked to go re look at them before I reply as I've been on this computer for four hours now. The fact that you give in to the belief that you have suddenly been transported into some alternate reality may be a symptom of psychosis, albeit mild maybe? You describe that you do constant rigorous reality checks. But these are extremely atypical. You describe checking random number sequences for any patterns or something to make sure you are in the real world? This is full blown psychosis coupled with compulsive and obsessive behaviours. I suggest you get treated for OCD and psychosis. As I've said, im no expert, just a thought.


This is a shot in the dark, but maybe it helps to let you know that you ARE in the same reality as EVERYONE ELSE. You are merely experiencing a distorted perception of the world, nothing less, nothing more, trust me.

In Topic: Fear that I have a degenerative disorder- irrational?

Im from Canada. According to my mom an EEG would fall under the type of healthcare that is paid for by taxes, thus money isn't an issue. But im not sure, I honestly don't know anything about the financial side of things. 


Sorry, I have very little knowledge on this subject. But what I am seeing based on your anecdote is that you can be epileptic without having seizures? Because if you had them obviously you and your doctors would know what is wrong right away. 


I dont know. According to the great tool of Occam's razor; It is probably more likely that I simply have DPDR, and It just hasn't fully developed yet, rather than some neurodegenerative illness that I somehow instantaneously developed after a panic attack. But who the hell knows!

Lol, I am a pretty neurotic person, everyone calls me a pessimist, and I hope to god im merely being pessimistic when I assume that I might have a degenerative illness. I asked my doctor about an EEG after describing my situation in rigorous detail to him. My doctor said that it would essentially be a waste of time, I guess I must not show any symptoms of any serious neurological illness or something. But I guess doctors are known for fucking up. Even If I am epileptic, that doesn’t really explain my increasing Depersonalization does it? Epilepsy isn’t necessarily a degenerative disorder, but I could be wrong.

It seems to me that your issue is very physical. It actually seems like you might not even have DP. Have you got your thyroids checked? Its pretty bizarre to me that your doctors didnt take this more seriously. Have u tried an eeg?
