#286459 distinguishing past from present? dp

Posted by gill on 08 May 2013 - 03:05 PM

I've had similar.  I think it is part of dissociation.  Probably has to do with the disruption of memory that happens with DP/DR.   I cannot clearly remember the experience of DP/DR while my dissociation is diminished and vice versa.

" the only reason I joined and am making this post is to show you all this.."


If the self is an illusion; then why would you attribute the actions of 'making', 'posting', and 'showing' to yourself, 'I'?   

#268532 people look awfully strange/foreign like, please help!!!!...

Posted by gill on 13 October 2012 - 05:06 PM

Just about everything can look strange/alien with my DP/DR; even words, sentences. Think of it like this.... Does anyone try to read a book 5 sentences at a time? No, because it's too much information to comprehend at one moment in time. Well so DP/DR is like too much information getting to your awareness at one time. Everything starts to become confusing because it's more then you're meant to handle at a time...

#262340 Trigger- is DP&DR being enlightened about "the system"?

Posted by gill on 06 August 2012 - 02:30 PM

DP isn't enlightenment. If it was, then no one would consider it a problem. Enlightenment is what happens when you got out and experience life, gaining wisdom.

This sounds like psychotic thinking to me. DP isn't 'more real' than non-DP. It just can seem more real or important because of the intense feelings often associated with it.

#261633 Why do you guys single out DP

Posted by gill on 27 July 2012 - 09:45 AM

I could say "stop worrying about it" for ANY problem a person has in life. How is this some unique insight into DP?

#261274 Do I know how to feel normal?

Posted by gill on 23 July 2012 - 06:07 PM

When I'm feeling normal I'm not doubting whether or not I'm normal... it's intuitive.

If DP were a symptom of anxiety, then it would come and go based on my moods. Anxious, DP. Calm, no Dp. Doesn't work that way though. It's continuous. When it's continuous; that means it's a long-term after-effect of stress. Obviously, if people reduce their stress, the DP should fade with time. But it's not going to instantly disappear the moment a person feels relaxed again.

#244774 have you ever seen or see people like dead?

I prefer the term 'soul-less organic meat puppets'. But that's just me.....

#243506 We're F*cked

Posted by gill on 04 November 2011 - 03:32 PM

Welp, I'm much improved from a year ago when I first came to this site, and there's been setbacks, but overall, yeah, I'd say at least half better. So I think a lot of this comes down to just having patience. It's better to think of improvements over the long term, then day to day. Because you know, day to day things can vary so much, it's just not going to be consistent usually.....

#242264 Lost and not sure whats going on.

Posted by gill on 18 October 2011 - 02:33 PM

What's interesting to me is that newborns have no self-concept, they don't know where they end and the world begins. And, of course, they don't develop one by asking questions such as 'who am I', or 'what am I'. They develop this sense by interacting with their environment.

So then, with DP you have some of this diminished sense of the external. Your mind then has more of a tendency to focus on internal thoughts. But in doing so, the self-concept can be diminished since it cannot be derived alone from internal thoughts, but must be developed with some interaction with the external.

#241476 Newbie to the forum, not to the 'condition'

Posted by gill on 04 October 2011 - 07:46 PM

I like 'inconvenience', or just how about 'issue' or problem. I never used to put much thought into what it was called but I do think it makes a difference now. Many people have gotten through dp/dr so it is something that can be overcome, problems can be overcome, issues can, bleh, disorder just sounds so negative and stagnant. Doesn't have to be...

#240835 Do yall really believe...

Posted by gill on 23 September 2011 - 08:20 PM

I'm recovered, please swallow it, even if your theories says it's impossible.

So you've recovered then, from this illusionary illness you created because you felt negative emotions? Good, I hope in the future now if you have negative emotions you don't confuse yourself again into thinking you have an illness that you don't have.
