    Is feeling more and more emotion a sign of recovery? I got so pissed at my boyfriend yesterday and it made me happy that I could actually get pissed off. Or even when I cry, crying for me feel like a release, it makes me feel real. Also my memory is getting better, the first few weeks are all...

    Trigger warning, I guess? Maybe? If you're feeling really unreal/anxious, don't read this, it may make you feel worse (probably). Okay, now that I have given sufficient warning, I'd like to ask you guys about how you deal with doubt. I always say to myself when I'm feeling really panicky or...

    I am going to say something here that might shock people. Depersonalisation and derealisation doesn't exist. I know, right? Sound crazy? Well, give me a few minutes to explain. DP and DR is an obsession disorder. It is an obsession with the self. The vast majority of people think outwardly...

    I just wanted to share an excerpt of a simple little down-to-earth book I am reading called "There is Nothing Wrong with You" by Cheri Huber. As I am starting to face my suppressed emotions, I am realising that my fear and negativity is connected to self-hate from all the invalidation I...

    I know that in order to get better we have to let go and not think as much, but I love thinking. But thinking scares me. But I love it. What do I do?

    How am I supposed to take baby steps (like, walk around the block and try not to freak out) when I have all these responsibilities like school and a job? I mean, yeah, it's not much, but it's overwhelming for me. I have trouble leaving my room to go to the bathroom, let alone go to school and...

    Anyone else here freaked out by sleeping? It's like, I finally feel better and then I have to start all over again. Every single day. Also, sleeping itself is really weird, you know? Anyone feel the same? How do you motivate yourself every morning?

    I just feel so alone, even in a large group of people. Especially with loved ones. How do you feel less alone? I feel like shit even when I'm not panicking because of this.

    So, I see a lot of post that tell us to stay away from things like the new, depressing TV shows, horror movies, etc. I find this very difficult because I love things like that. I love watching the Walking Dead and the news, I like reading about serial killers. None of these things give me...

    How long should I wait before I take a lorazepam to calm myself down because of a panic attack? Should I take it as soon as I feel anxious, or just when I feel like I can't stand it any longer? I don't wanna build up a resistance, but I also am incapable of calming down and staying calm a lot.

    When I'm on the computer is about the only time I can relax. When I'm not on the computer I can't stop focusing on myself and how weird it is to see/move/exist, and I get scared. Anybody else feel this way? How do you stop relying on the computer so much?

    I've never told this to anyone, so here goes. When I was 10, I banged my head on a radiator, in order to relieve some anger. Makes me sound so crazy, I know. Anyway it was just a little bump but when I stood up everything had changed. I instantly told mum wat had happened, describing my feelings...
