Hey Zach,

 

I relate to this. I've collected a ton of books throughout dp (from 16 to now, I'm 34), and I haven't read them, it's too hard I make it in chapter 1 and then put it down. Driving is a big no for me, especially at night. My motor skills went away since day 1 of dpdr. I also find it difficult to speak in person. Even walking in reality is strange...


In Topic: Depersonalization anxiety?

11 February 2021 - 09:00 PM

Growing up I had anxiety that would make me miss school, even back in 6th grade I missed 2 months because of anxiety. That was before DP/DR. I've actually gotten over a lot of my anxiety some years ago. At my worst points I was just numb to it all. It's a blessing and a curse to feel. Which maybe is why some say this is protective mechanism, if anxiety becomes too strong then we default to dissociation.


In Topic: Feel better then worse??

Hey there jen1017,

 

I can relate to this. I feel very close to recovery, and then I'll have a few bad days to a week. I'd explain it by the fact that even Pre-DP we'd have good times and bad times. It's been an important lesson to me that DP/DR is not all encompassing. We tend to over blow it out of proportion. That's no hard to do because it's actually the hardest and worst things to experience chronically. But for example, our hearts still beat, our lungs still breath.
