    I keep having extremely existential thoughts like the following: - I think about how the universe can even exist - I think about how weird it is we're living on a rock in space - I think about how it's weird we exist and are conscious - I get scared of the idea of eternity - I've also been...

    Hey guys I'm new here to dpselfhelp, I guess i'll just lay it out all on the table so i seem more transparent. First. My father became ill of cancer in January of 2018, after a long and hard fought battle he passed away in August of 2019. I was unbelievably close to my dad as he was my best...

    Hi everyone So I am about 2 months down the line in my wonderful journey with dpdr - most of the symptoms have cleared up, I feel in my body most of the time, things look real enough which is progress - but at the moment I am really struggling with the Existential thoughts. I have really...

    Hi! So I am a 20 year old female, and I recently started having existential thoughts + DP/DR last month. I remember what triggered it, I was watching a video of WWYD (The TV show) and in it, they discussed the amount of people in America with alzheimers and how serious of an issue it is. I...

    How long did yours last? My dp and dr is basically over except for bearable fogs but I still have questions humans Just shouldn't even pay attention to. They aren't even normal dp questions. Just weird stuff. What I don't get is why they are still here but my dp and dr is gone. Did they remain...

    Hi, How do o stop the existential thoughts? And when I do get them how do I stop being scared of them and over analysing them constantly? I have OCD so I tend to overthink and I don't feel satisfied until I'm 100% sure about something which, obviously when it comes to existential thoughts, you...

  8. Introduce Yourself
    Hello everyone. To be honest I've never written on a forum before and I'm not really sure what to write really. All I know is that about an hour ago I had the scariest existential terror episode attack (there's probably a more proper phrase describing this but for a lack of better words I'm...

    Hi guys. Im so happy that i created this forum in my imagination so i could heal myself from DpDr and get some help from people that i created in my imagination. Haha. I don't think that we should loose out sence of humor, even though the state that im in right now isn't exactly the happiest...
  10. The Daily Forum
    Hello guys, so I've been experiencing dp for about two months. Initially like many people from this forum I began to questioning if my reality was just a dream (derealization). I felt like my eyes where mere projectors and I was living in a movie. I was able to continue my life and eventually I...

    Hello, I am new here, so just thought i'd say hello and share a bit about my story and share some tips. My DR/DP all started from a panic attack from a bad trip taking hits from a bong. I have never had a panic attack before and this brought on so many horrible symptoms. My legs would shake, I...

    Lately I'm not sure if I'm getting better, worse, or staying the same. I can eat, but my appetite is usually not there until late in the evening(zoloft side effect?). I can get to sleep on my own for the most part with no sleep aides, however I'm still confused as to whether I sleep all night. I...
  13. The Daily Forum
    Hello guys, Two years ago, I used to have strong DP in a really bad form, It got to the point when I had to interrupt my studies and leave my family for a while. Anyway, I managed to recover by myself, using some meditation techniques, getting out of comfort zone, jogging, change of...

    Hey all, While I often feel the "physical" symptoms of DP/DR, such as feeling my head get heavy, getting exhausted, and other anxiety symptoms, most of the time my symptoms revolve more around my thoughts. I think the big existential thoughts about what life is all about, what we are as humans...
  15. Recovery Stories
    I've been there. I know the feeling. "I'm never going to be back to my regular self, and if I do recover there will be somethings I'll never be able to move past. I have acquired a new perspective on life, and I was so diluted about my existence before. This sucks." I was deep in the dark hole...

    Earlier today I watched a program about what came before the big bang, and then afterwards I watched a program that tried to disprove the existence of aliens, and there were some believers on there saying that aliens were our "creators" or something along those lines. I do love my documentaries...
