Do you feel as if you have had DP/DR all your life/as long as you can remember?

P.S. Do you think we could just go quoting into infinity like this? What an experiment that would be!
that is such a ridiculous thing to say!!! sometimes shrinks can do more harm than good (imo). of course it's not reality, otherwise people would understand what you mean when you describe dp to them.nayashi said:Yes, and what really pisses me off is that my shrink is always saying "well, if you've felt this way as far back as you can remember, how do you konw THAT'S not reality, and when you have those 5-second-reality states, that's not the altered state?"
I want to stab her.
But now that I think about it, I think I've always sort of had it, but I think I really really really had it when I woke up on my 12th birthday.
Not the dp and dr, but i have had schizophrenia all my life....the dp/dr didn't start up until about 2 years ago when the schiz symptoms worsened.mrmole said:
i think this is a very logical question and i wonder the same thing. maybe the original poster meant they have had episodes of it come and go all their life?dreamworld native said:i dont understand how someone can have dp/dr for all their life. if its always been a part of you, how could you tell the difference between a normal concious and having dp/dr? how do you suddenly say.."oh theres something wrong" if your mind has always been like that? if someones always had it.. what would make them realize? how do they know what not living in reality is if they've never lived in reality.
