I'm glad I was of some service. I wish you well.The way he described feeling like just a set of eyes is exactly the way I feel most of the time. And I do often feel like that I'm trying to escape myself, but that's impossible, so depersonalizing is the next best thing.
Excellent read, thanks for finding this~!
I'm going to show this article to my psychologist I do believe. The first thing I asked him was if he knew anything about DP, and he said no so I quickly moved on, but I feel this can give him a good sense of what it's like for me, and likely why it's occurring.
It's a very insightful blog. I think there's a lot of other articles on there that can offer a different perspective on issues to people with DP.Interesting article, thanks for the post. I especially got a lot out of the comments posted below it.
Coward is such a god awful judgemental label to use, especially since you have no idea what people have gone through on here, some of which have even endured years of childhood sexual abuse. It's really unfair for you to come on here and throw around your labels in some kind of twisted attempt to stimulate people into recovery.haven't read it fully, but this is right on point: " that what defense mechanisms essentially do is divert attention away from sources of pain so that we no longer notice them."
this is almost the same as dissociation, running away from problems, repressing emotions, cowardice.
If you're a coward, that's one problem. If you're a coward AND very intelligent, you're fucked, because you'll create so good and logical sounding excuses that you'll believe them.
Two wrongs don't make a right. Self pity may not be the best thing but neither is going around telling people they are cowards and lazy for not being able to completely eliminate their dp. DP is the result of being victimized in life so why shame people for expressing that if they have a need to express that?That's funny, but apparently we do seem to need all the "help me pls " x 90000 and other countless self pitying victim threads.
