#304345 Recovered

Posted by orca on 12 September 2013 - 06:49 AM

Hello everyone.

I wanted to come make a post here as I used to see a lot of posts asking
Does anyone recover from dp/dr. I've come to say YES it's possible.
I've thought about making a post a few times to put some minds at ease and was
Actually feeling guilty that I haven't, but generally once you have recovered this site is
The last thing on your mind and when you do think of it you quickly ignore
The thought as it brings back to many bad memories.

Anyway I feel like I "cured" myself basically from being as mindful/busy as I could. You want to plan your days so there is no down time and you give 100% focus to any small task preferably something that isn't so boring at the start to get the ball rolling, for me it was getting outside more and taking the dog for a walk, washing the car, cleaning and trying to have keep my body healthy.

Doing this was basically like burying a seed, nothing really feels like anything changes as a seed does t grow in couple of days but after a while it sprouts and then bam your looking back thinking fuck me
I climbed out of that hell hole.

So once you have made up your mind to really get better,make a plan give yourself to
Everything you do mentally and physically. DO NOT ponder anymore trying to figure out
What is causing us such grief it generates it more, AND STAY OFF the computer
Also think about everything your grateful for as it will help keep a positive tone.

So go plant that seed. :)

So disheartening to see that we all appear normal but are actually horribly different..

It's like we are buried and can hear people rescuing us, but they are unable to find us and give up and leave.

"insanity is when you do the same things over and over again and expect different results"
force yourself to go out, engage in life..

#253203 OCD is causing my DP/DR

Posted by orca on 17 March 2012 - 03:42 AM

Look, bad intrusive thoughts is basically where I went down hill. I obsessed over it, I thought I was a bad person and that I'd snap and act on them.
All this led to intense anxiety for like 2 years that basically crippled me mentally, and I think after all this I eventually developed dp, also I'm not sure if it's that relevant but
I had experience with weed a few months before it all.

But I know what u mean by OCD, u constantly obsess over analysing your thoughts and why they kept popping up.

So your not alone, I randomly get intrusive thoughts here and there but I know I'm good and I can deal with them with ease.

#252118 DPD v enlightenment

Posted by orca on 05 March 2012 - 07:22 PM

I like this thread, a lot of good views and points..
I know that I still can find peace in DP/DR to a certain extent because after all it's put me through I Am thankful for it all, it's changed me,

Its made me realise how toxic my ego has been.
I now see why I should never judge anyone for any reason and that the best thing for me is to be mindful and love and accept everything.
I sort of feel it was no accident in obtaining DP, and because I was really on a bad track before hand dp it has now given me a positive insight into life.

For me I see this as being a possible first step to "enlightenment"

#252046 Temporary relief?

Posted by orca on 05 March 2012 - 05:09 AM

Yeah that's exactly right, it can become a unhealthy habit of relief or distraction being that it's a double edged sword.
Although when your are having a bad episode it's just so easy to submerse yourself into playing a game for half a day then going to bed lol.

#251948 Mindfulness, anxiety, and depersonalization

Posted by orca on 03 March 2012 - 08:06 PM

Big +1 for mindfulness here,

Maybe a admin should put up a pinned article of mindulness as it seems so important to regain the feel of life.

#251898 my techniques.. hopefully they help others

Posted by orca on 03 March 2012 - 03:29 AM

Hmm sounds like mindfulness and sounds like it works. And other people keep dismissing it. Their loss.

Yes! Mindfulness definitely is so important in the road to recovery.. I've always known it helps me, but you cant always remember what techniques helped when you have dp episode because your brain seems so cluttered and crazy.

Only now that I'm so sick and tired of dp I'm trying to place great emphasis on MINDFULNESS. I even brought a book on mindfulness to keep me focused,
And I'll tell you now, I walked through my house thinking What The Fuck! I don't remember half of my shit looking this way, because when your in a mindful state you take in life so much more and the little details on all objects instead of just seeing them as blobs that have no meaning,
And now in return makes me feel like I view the world as i did a few years ago, which was normal lol.

#251758 Is our modern world increasing the prevelance of DP/DR disorder?

Posted by orca on 01 March 2012 - 08:53 AM

Honestly i think a lot of these points are true. Sometimes i think our brains are still meant to be just living in a hut hinting deer, going to bed when the sun sets, living by the laws of nature. Maybe our brains havent evolved enough to all the crazy things our "progress" has allowed us to do.

I think the best answer is we arent living with enough balance in life.. Too much of anything is bad, eg use of technology and constantly having your head stuck in cyber world or just watching to much brain numbing tv lol.
Is it only me that feels a good peace when camping in bush for a few day? Or having no Internet for a while?
