I feel like I'm trapped in my own body and life. There was a time where I didn't think like this, but now its crippling. I can't even eat. I'm so scared it will never pass.
Please help me.
Please help me.
This comment literally made me cry tears of joy.I understand you. I've had the existential crisis thing before, and I know it sucks ;/. I think what helped me was... well.. eventually you just get tired of obsessing and happiness just finds its way back to you. Time heals wounds bro. Letting go is very important. You have any good friends or family you can confide in for comfort?
Theres tons of success stories man, people completely reverting back to their former selves. You just have you allow yourself to. You just have to let go of the foundation of anxiety. I personally see a psych who I just talk to and that helps. After a while It just seems to fade a bit, and thats without me exercising, going out, taking vitamins, all the things that are recommended I barely did, and I still got better. Just apply your self one step at a time, try to clear your life of those anxiety inducing events or thoughts. And all of your negative thoughts and feelings will fade. You can do it man.Hey, sorry for bumping this, but... I'm going through the curing process, and I'm wondering... do you return to yourself after this? Is there a chance that you can?
Hey buddy, We were all at a point when this was all new to us, its beyond scary. But I found reading certain posts a little comforting and helpful back then. You just gotta be careful what you read on here, some of it can be frightening but everyone has a different case. This is my 2nd severe episode of debilitating DP/DR, I fully recovered through my first one. The feeling was unreal, its like your born again into a more mature, more intelligent person. It was like heaven, and the crazy thing is that feeling lasted for 3 months and probably coulda lasted forever. You have this great appreciation for everything. Got back into drugs though and relapsed hard.. But there is hope buddy, everyone will recover sooner or later. It won't be easy at all, but it is 100% possible and its all will power really. Most stuff for me is really uncomfortable, and im at rock bottom now also. But the more exposure you get with uncomfortable situations, the better you deal with it. The easier it gets to calm yourself down. So overall the answer is yes you can get back to your old self, but you'll be even better than your old self. Obviously something in your past caused you to get here, too much stress, trauma, drugs. Most that will be gone and you will feel like a new man. Gives you some motivation to push hard and keep going!Hey, sorry for bumping this, but... I'm going through the curing process, and I'm wondering... do you return to yourself after this?
