You just have to accept that there is a brain inside your head. Its not a bad thing. Sort of like existentialism, so what if we are humans and alive on this planet or what ever. It unsettles you for no reason and you have to just accept it. It shouldn't freak you out, so don't let it.
We've all been where you are now, you have to be strong and it DOES GET BETTER!! You're in hell now, but it wont get any worse and you will discover your courage, and you will learn great coping skills from this. There aren't much harder things in life than coping with derealization. You've got this whole forum for support and remember, IT IS NOT PERMANENT!!! YOU WILL RECOVER!!!
I like you being optimistic. Can you please tell me how do you cope with depression?I mean I m still thinking how this could happen to me?I used to have such a normal life and so on.Thanks
There are loads of ways to cope and treat depression naturally, the way I coped myself is helping people. At every opportunity i got, i would be completely selfless and it really worked. Making other people happy really made me feel good about myself, like I had purpose and i was making a difference positively.
I also embraced a bunch of buddhist teachings, really good way to find peace is BUDDHA, especially regarding DP/DR.
The main thing you have to do, is put a fuck load of effort in, thats the most important thing.
I've had dr for 13 month induced my xtc... Your going to go down a path that could take you some time... After about 5 months is when I realized that I won't progress into recovery unless I find hope... Find hope in recovery forms, relationships, job, and hobbies. First few months are the hardest but every day it gets better little by little <3
Well said the first months are the hardest, took me a month to leave the house, and 4 months until i found some peace. REMEMBER IT WONT LAST FOR EVER!!!!
Think about how strong this experience will make you. I'm sorry you've had to go through this at such a young age, but you will learn amazing coping skills from this experience and you will grow into a stronger person!! Try to leave the house as much as you can, its scary going to familiar places with dp because it looks so strange and you're not used to being there with dp/dr, but you gotta go there man! you gotta leave the house and go to the shops and shit! You CAN FUNCTION with DP! Just take baby steps and you will learn this to be true!
I have the same thing mate. I would be writing a college essay and forget to spell "media" or something and I would think its my brain degrading. You just have to realize how stupid it sounds, Its gotten better after I started saying to myself "this fear is stupid and irrational, i refuse to fear it anymore" or something along those lines. but you have to actually believe it when you think this, because it IS true.
nothing changes over night, it all gets better with time
