In Topic: Physical romantic relationships...is it even possible?

11 August 2015 - 09:11 AM

I was with my boyfriend before my dp symtpoms came, and our relationship defintely changed a lot when I started to feel like this but relationships can definitely work! im not very interested in a physical relationship anymore, and I have bad mood swings and depressive episodes, but he has been very patient and is the only thing thats kept me sane! I dont think you have anything to lose by giving it a go, but its best to explain everything up front so they understand your behaviours better.

In Topic: Hello everyone. Can somebody tell me if this is DP?

what you said about not being able to pinpoint how it started and your memory being hazy is very similar to me. I think I've had my symptoms on and off for 2 years but I'm still no closer to remembering the beginning! I hope you find a way to feel better again x

When you're new to these feelings it can be very scary! I've been experiencing similar symptoms for over a year and it gets sooo much better when you stop thinking about it all the time and try to accept that this is how you feel. Stressing about it makes the symptoms 10x more prominent. it doesn't affect my daily life much at all any more unless i concentrate on it :)

p.s I also got treated for depression and anxiety and once those symptoms went away I started to notice dp/dr, wonder if its a common thing?

thanks everyone :) I think I agree that coming on here can only help to an extent and I shouldn't try to overthink things too much


In Topic: Wondering - are we all similar personalities here?

I'm completely different: I never think about things much, I brush feelings off rather than think them through, I'm quite laid back, sense of humour etc... but I think my inability to focus on my feelings and stuff means I've been storing them up for years and my brain can't cope with it!
