Uni Girl, i have a tough time distinguishing the difference between what DP and DR actually are. I know that sounds foolish but it's true. I guess what it is, is that i'm much more "pumped up" into reality, whereby i'm much more interested in very practical tasks, as opposed to drifting off into DP induced contemplations. But the anxiety does go up and if i were to have another that practical "pump up" would become hazardous, in the sense that my mind would race too much.university girl said:Sebastian, your brain works half as fast after having a coffee? If you have increased anxiety from coffee (having had more than one cup- me too!), is your DR worse? In what ways are you a vegetable without coffee? Thanks.
Without a coffee, i just feel tired and stupid. It's the way the brain adapts to it (I don't think it was Sci. Am. Homeskooled, but it was one of those science magazines). If you are a coffee drinker who has had their "fix" you are much quicker mentally than if you're a coffee drinker who hasn't, and even quicker than those who don't drink coffee (for a short period of time that is).
That being said, i'm off to get a coffee now...mmmm...
