Know what my dp feels like?

21 May 2012 - 05:24 AM

It feels like being in a shell of some a turtle's shell. And when I strain my head out of it, it only lasts a couple seconds...if that. It automatically wants to retreat back to going inside the shell. Does this make sense? It feels like my brain is inside a shell.

Feeling very fucked up, but not caring

21 March 2012 - 04:41 AM

So for the past couple of days, my symptoms have been unusually severe, and while I am aware of how messed up and out of this world I truly feel...I find that I don't Like I know how bad everything is...but I just don't have the desire to do anything about it. Anyone else get this after having had DP/DR for awhile? (in my case 2 years now)

Also, something else that I'm noticing that doesn't sit very well with me is how my writing abilities have become affected recently. I'm someone who would write lengthy responses and explanations to people, but now my responses have become so short and a lot less meaningful. (take for instance this thread)

I am a robot.


A Trend I've Been Noticing

06 March 2012 - 08:39 AM

I've noticed that in quite a few people who have managed to successfully beat and overcome DP/DR, it usually ends up coming back...whether it be weeks later (like myself), or months, or even years later. Why is this? Is it true that once the mind adapts to dissociation as a coping mechanism for whatever reason, that it will ALWAYS divert back to that same '' learned coping mechanism'' once an individual comes face to face with certain life stressors? This is very unsettling for me, and makes me feel hopeless because it seems that one cannot truly EVER beat this disorder/condition without it coming back to haunt them at one point or another again.


Does your body feel sluggish?

29 February 2012 - 07:01 AM

Hey guys...just wanted to post and see if this was a common thing to have with DP. I've noticed that throughout the time I've had DP/DR, my body has felt so sluggish and physically heavy like it's hard to move around freely. I don't know if it's because of the dissociation or what, but I just feel very sluggish. One of the very first things I noticed upon my spontaneous recovery this past April was how free and light my body felt. It just felt ''right.'' I felt airy and was able to move with great ease. So my question to you guys...anyone get the sluggish/heavy body feeling as well?

Anxious vs Dissociated

09 February 2012 - 09:20 AM

I've been noticing a trend among DP sufferers. There are those who have more anxiety and less dissociation, and others who, like myself...have intense dissociation, but almost non-existent anxiety. So I ask you guys...which would you prefer to have? High anxiety/low depersonalization ...or...High depersonalizaton/low anxiety?
