Hey there bluewine,


Welcome to the forum!


You can find lots of advice usually in the recovery stories section.


But along the way to healing, it's important to keep up on things like hygiene, household chores, etc.


I'd also advise to find joy in the simple things, like a cup of coffee, a small talk conversation with a friend, family, and so on.


Also know that if your loved ones or even strangers knew what you are going through that they would be really proud of you, and astounded how strong we are.


And, though you feel disconnected from your people, and if that bothers you, then deep down you do still care and love them, this is a just a temporary condition.

#627988 this forum was a couple of years ago much more positive

What exactly do you mean by "trolls"? What kind of person would waste their time messing with people on a depersonalization website?


You wouldn't believe.

From a moderator's perspective, you aren't seeing all the trolls we took care of back then.

#627338 How can this possibly be real?

Posted by ThoughtOnFire on 03 December 2020 - 12:20 PM

How did you get round to that way of thinking?

At the moment everywhere I turn there is one stark one after another. I can't shake the idea that they mean something more.

It's making me second guess everything. When I speak to someone I stop myself and say "why speak if they aren't real?". I've lost that feeling towards looking at people, photos and memories and having relief from them.

I keep trying to tell myself its impossible to be anywhere else and so on but I'm so scared just in case that's not the truth and though I never did transport anywhere, somehow this isn't the right place. Just alot of things don't make sense.


I pretty much accepted it as soon as it started. I went from being raised as an Atheist to a Believer that there is something "more" in life. Didn't know what it was, just knew there was "something".

#627202 Percent?

Posted by ThoughtOnFire on 28 November 2020 - 04:38 PM

Typically it's viewed as "how they are feeling"


Like I consider myself 85% to 95% recovered.


But it's like, what is that last amount?


When is enough going to be enough? 


It's very puzzling if you ask me.

#627200 I found a cure/treatment!

Any further argumentative posts here, (and elsewhere), will be deleted.

#627150 How can this possibly be real?

Posted by ThoughtOnFire on 26 November 2020 - 03:49 PM

I've experienced crazy synchronicities for many years now. And so have lots of others. I accept it just as the way the world really is, when one is open to it.

#624508 How do you guys live with dp/dr?

Posted by ThoughtOnFire on 20 October 2020 - 07:58 PM

In my own experience I'd say the Symptoms have always remained constant, but after a while I grew stronger.

#614980 The No-Cure Model

Posted by ThoughtOnFire on 18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM

Been this way for 16.5 years now. I've gradually gotten ALOT better over time. But finally to get completely over it, I'm now accepting that is is 'me' who will emerge from this. See, all this time I've always believed there was a cure, a way out, a recovery. But I subconsciously held on to the belief that the transformation would "kill" the DP'd me. But now I understand who I am in DP, will be the same one to cross back over to reality. Rather than some kind of "DP Ego" Death.

#614676 Safe to use?

Posted by ThoughtOnFire on 12 February 2020 - 02:29 PM

I've found antihistamines improve brain fog, ironically. Specifically I take the Costco Brand of Zyrtec... MUCH less costly! It's called Aller-tec.

#613516 DP/DR Theme Songs

Posted by ThoughtOnFire on 28 January 2020 - 01:26 AM

A while back I asked the Community to post their DP/DR songs and then I made a playlist of them all.


Here they are:

Even the most sane person would not do well isolating like that.

#608284 it seems to me that most.people who suffer from dp/dr are caucasian

Posted by ThoughtOnFire on 23 October 2019 - 09:59 AM

I'm locking this thread. It seems most of the counter arguments to the OP have been made. It's obvious that mental illness and DP/DR specifically is not greater in any skin color. I see no productive reason to keep this thread going. The conversation was more or less civil but I sense it could easily descend into a storm.

#606016 Marijuana Use With DpDr

Posted by ThoughtOnFire on 07 September 2019 - 10:13 AM

Weed makes my symptoms 100x worse. And for many others it makes it many times worse. You're best to steer clear of smoking marijuana ever again.
