Hello,

A lot of people with DP say that they don't really feel their DP when they play because they concentrate on the game and not how they feel.

I, however, actually have trouble playing games because of my DP. Is anyone else like this?

I guess I belong to the first group.

I'm sure the DP/DR doesn't go anywhere while I'm playing videogames, I'm just not thinking about it while playing.

Can you describe just in what way your DP is disruptive to videogaming for you?

Personally, I stopped playing most of them 'cos I always end up spending too much time on them and using them as a means to avoid the real problems in my life.

Then again, they can be fun from time to time.

I feel the DP so strongly that I can't completely focus on the game. I also get all woozy and stuff from playing. I've been scanned for epilepsy, but I don't have it.

Today my DP is the strongest it's ever been, by the way.

Also I feel like I'm not even playing sort of, I'm just watching myself play or something...

Do you experience things like head pressure? (Can see where that would be a distraction.)

That sounds pretty normal (my head is always in a deep fog after an hour or more of comp/vid games).

I don't think so...at least I haven't noticed it.

Videogames are a much welcomed escape for me. I always tend to enjoy them. However on one occasion I was so DP'ed/full of anxiety that all I could focus on while playing was on how it was programmed and how the game was made. Existential gaming is odd. :D
