hi eveyone, sorry to bother you all, ive just been feeling very strange and wondering why... and then i stumbled upon the idea of dp and dr... but i dont know if it fits me, so i thought who better t ask than those whove been there? well obviously a shrink but thats not really an option right now.

so basically i have frequently these feelings of being totally detached from everything... like at school ill just feel like im in a video game, or when i fight with my parents ill just go silent and feel like im not really there... and in general sometimes my body just feels totally numb. like, i touch it and there's sensation but somehow it never really reaches my brain. my consciousness. its so hard to explain but i was just wondering if any of these things are like dp or dr. it varies a lot though and when im depressed its reeeeally intense... but now im not really depressed particularly, jsut a little down cause of the tiem of year (i have s.a.d.) but otherwise fine.

it also varies depending on whats going on... in bad situations or when certain songs come up and ir emember stuff, it gets much worse, but if im mostly happy its usually goes away basically. though right now im talking with my friend and its good but i still feel this numbness.... also a weird thing is some songs trigger it really intensely... theyre not even songs i have bad associations with or anything, just... they kidna put me in a weird trance.

i dunno, sorry for rambling so long, just would appreciate some input if anyoen has a moment.

Dear Shy,
Hello. So far, it sounds like you're describing DP. My best suggestion is to read the stories, and the thread, "What doe DP/DR feel like to you?" ... it's up at the top. Might give you a sense of what other people feel here.

And keep posting and asking questions.

Welcome,
Take Care.
D :shock:

:) thanks a lot, dreamer. ill do all those things you said.

ugh im feeling it really strongly right now... such an awful numbness...

its funny though, it used to bother me a whole lot more, to the extent of i felt the need to (and often did) self-injure b/c the pain would bring me back to reality. but now i just let it come and go as it pleases.. doesnt even bother me that much at this point, id just really like to understand whats going in, you know?
