I like the term 'moment of clarity' I'm going to start using that.

I used to get them almost daily in the summer when I had no responsibilities/obligations and a simple walk in the sun or reading a book would often get me there.

Now I get them like once a week. Although I have a theory that what largely ties into depersonalization is the sense of feeling we have no control. I find that as soon as I push myself to seize the moment and just slow things down and try to enjoy something, it's easier than I previously thought. I feel as though the hardest part is letting myself "slow down" and do things calmly.

It's like when I try and take a nap; at first it's really hard for me to close my eyes and lie still, and it almost feels wrong, but the more I just let myself relax and lay there, over time I become more okay with just 'being' and not being so wound up and restless all the time. And there have been a few times in the last few months where I have been able to do this, and by gradually relaxing myself I've taken a 15 minute nap and woken up feeling super relaxed and anxiety free.

Heblehblehbleh!!! Had another clarity moment. But i still felt unreal during it. Possible due to anxiety. Anyways i was just enjoying the sounds of the birds. My eyes automaticly opened like theyd been stuck shut for so long and i was there jn the real world but not quite. Anywho i just started snapping my fingers, and it was amazing. Best thing ive experienced in 16 years. Better then the last clarity moment. omg omg. I cant belive im doing this no medication! Keep it up guys! Ill need to find the stem to the problem were im constantly over thinking what im doing instead of just doing if that makes sense. I need to live my life not analyse it!

By blank mind i mean i hold all my tension up there,meaning im numb to my emotions thoughts and pretty much everything that goes on up there. I do have inner monolouge and can picture things mentally but it is very subdued. So its like i got a block of concerete in my head. Literally feels like it (constant headache feeling like my brain is exploding) Seeing my dad passed out from neumonia was to much for me and it all was stored in my head. Writing this im gaining the sensitivity in my legs. I dont believe its any thing scientific because ive brought back the feeling in my body myself and have even had clear and full vision before. Unmedicated. I am seen as a very rude person because im blocked up in my head and say i do things i normally wouldnt. Its time to come down from the clouds and into my body haha
