Multiple choices are allowed, so please select all that apply. Apologies in advance if I have neglected to mention any group, if this affects your choice then please select 'Other' and post which background you come from. I appreciate that the racial groups I have used may not capture the complexity of human race, but it would be a bit difficult to produce any meaningful results if there were 1,000 ethnicities to choose from. A case of choosing the best fit may be possible, for example Jews may either choose White European or Middle Eastern.
Hi, I went to see my GP today and he said he's happy to write a referral for me to the DP clinic in London, at the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College, but he doesn't have any of the details. He's asked me to send him them, so does anyone here know them?
Interested to here how your perception of time was altered by DP, if at all, and any psychiatric reasons for this. I find that things feel like they were much, much longer ago than they were, I don't suffer memory loss as such but I feel as though a great deal has passed between the present time and some event yesterday even though it hasn't.
Anyone else feel like time is taking an eternity to pass by?
I'm sure most people here have had that eery feeling which signals the beginning of a panic attack, when suddenly familiar objects, people, experiences begin to feel strange and frightening and within seconds you're depersonalized and in the midst of a proper anxiety attack. I've noticed that during this period of time in which my mental state is in flux, from normal to depersonalized/anxious, I often get a pounding headache at the front of my head as well as shortness of breath. In fact it isn't really, in my case at least, a headache, it isn't painful it is almost a kind of heavy, pounding feeling, I become very aware of the frontal lobe area. Anyway, my questions are these, firstly does anyone else get this and if so, does anyone know if it is caused by the process of dissociation or is a physical symptom caused by the anxiety?
