Topics I've Started

Your ethnic background

07 February 2012 - 08:36 PM

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.

Details for DP clinic in London?

30 January 2012 - 03:16 PM

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?

Time perception very skewed

14 January 2012 - 03:03 AM

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?

'Schizophrenic Brains Not Fooled by Optical Illusion'

See whether you see it concave or convex. I saw it as sticking out when it was really sticking in.....which is apparently a good sign? :confused:

Headache accompanying dissociation during panic attack

07 November 2011 - 07:36 AM

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?

Just curious, I'm not worried about it.
