hey guys, im thinking of leaving this bord soon as i feel theres only certain amount of positive use for it (which im highly greatful for)... ok ive recently got to the point where my dr/dp is too bad to live with sooo ive changed my life and really trying to get over it. Im really into nlp and pyschologyical technquies, and im doing alot of something called anchoring to stop myself thinking about dp ever and its really helping me. We all know how impossible it is to not think about dp but over the last week ive slowly changed my thought pattern. This is how i started, as soon as any thought came into my head about a negative feeling i would use a mental distraction like just saying la la la la in my head but really thinking about it and totally blocking out me thinking about anything else as u simply cant think about something when ur thinking of something else. I know this sounds stupid but i got this idea from being drunk... when im drunk i cant feel dp cus i dont care enough about it and other things are soo much more worth thinking about, now all i do when i notice anything weird i can just make my mind go blank and find something extremly quickly to think about this only last like 3 seconds but it like stops any horrible thoughts starting...its like im interupting someone in the middle of a senstence and never letting them finish, ill do this until about 3 hours later when i think shit i forgot about dp then ill just do it again soo i never think about it... now for the achoring part... when i think wow i feel really normal ill sing some song i like in my head or tap myself on the head or some sorta anchor to the emotinal feeling .. ill then fire this anchor off when i notice i feel abit shitty and it will lift me up slightly and then ill do my blanking thing untill i again forget about dp which u dont notcie untill u remeber. Like alot of people with dp im into obessing with thought patterns and my own body language etc .. i think there is alot of use for putting theres sorta technquies into some positive thing for our selves. Im not accademically clever but im really clued on psychology soo all this stuff im going on about is very hard to describe. Just always have something u can concentrait on really hard when u have the slightest thought of dp. if u cant think of something just look at random things around u and just blank ya mind and think only about them. I think this blocking out any thoughts after a while could do alot of good.. and knowing the course and not being scared of it is a huge part of dp. probably aload of bollox but i tried and thats what my mum says counts hahahahahaha! i think homer says it best ... 'well put something on im starting to think' haha quality .. peace jay

Hi mate,

I do a lot of this. When I'm getting negative thoughts etc, I'll just say to myself "Cancel" and try and think of something else. Only thing I find is that it's hard to keep it up. Sometimes I forget and go back to a day dreaming state. I also find that after a few beers I dont give a shit about anything and the dr/dp does'nt bother me one bit. It's returns with avengance the morning after though. Bummer!!

yep. i started out like that as well, in order to feel healthier. I dont think that's what did it for me though. But its a good start.

What I'm really into is this sentence Janine writes: engage yourself in the drama of your life. I think that's what did it for me. People, emotions, the exciting prospect of uncertainty. Life is this great uncertain moment happening at any second, the discovery of it, is what keeps me going.

Im glad you are feeling better man.
