You're an egotistical moron who thinks he's more philosophical then you really are. Don't push your crap filled ideas on people. If you really care about the people on these boards and forums you wouldn't post stuff that's so negative. You said that you don't remember what DP/DR felt like once you were cured... so then why are you telling me (and others) that it's all in my head. Oh, and thank you for calling everyone with DP/DR stupid... it really credits your post.
I've changed my way of thinking and it hasn't changed a thing. You ARE NOT a professional or expert in this matter so please don't tell me to just change my thinking and I'll get better. This is an actual disorder and like a lot of disorders, it's not a matter of simply changing your thinking. Some people have imbalances and need actual medical help. Nobody has really found the solution to DP/DR.
You said it yourself, we (the people with DP/DR) are philosophical... then I'm PHILOSOPHICALLY telling you you're full of $***. Just because something didn't work for you doesn't mean it won't or doesn't work for someone else. For some people, it IS a matter of "getting out of their own head" and just letting their system/brain get back to reality. Others, it might not be so simple.
How did you get DP/DR? Mine wasn't a result of stress or weed. So, I'd assume if you actually have had it for that long you'd realize that it's not a matter of "change your thinking."
If you're going to post advice, 1. dont belittle what people are going through by saying their fears are stupid. 2. Do some research. 3. Try and encourage people. Don't discourage them from at least seeking help with this problem. It took me years to finally come to a point where I'm ready to start dealing with this...
There's a lot of fear,rigidity, impatience, frustration, anger and negativity in your post.
Ask yourself why you posted your response in such an angry, hateful, frustrated matter and maybe you would see that I'm in a better position then you are.. Then maybe you would take the time to realize that you are still stuck in your head with your hate, anger, fear, negativity and frustration. Whilst I'm dp/dr free and feel 100 percent fine after having dp/dr chronically for 6 years. Maybe even after that you would then step outside of your own hateful angry rigid head and see that I wouldn't be here if I didn't want to help people.. I would have just forgotten about it like it's so easy to forget . In the end it's only yourself that can help you because no matter what you're still going to have to live with yourself.
Now take the time to ask yourself if you're happy with you and your life.
I know the answer to that question but do you ?
