Just wondered how DP affected everyones creativity. I've lived with DP for over ten years (although i'm actually well on the road to recovery now...) and in that time i've written many stories (scripts) and produced many home made short films one of which is being used in an advertising campagne...nothing too mainstream unfortunatly. I mean, sometimes its like my head is exploding with ideas and to be quite honest i blame (or thank ) my condition. If i look back to the person i was before DP came into my life, i'm not sure he would have any artistic view on the world at all. I suppose Depersonalisation gives you a chance to look at the world in a hole new perspective. I know this could be a good or a bad thing depending on the individual but seriously, i think DP game me a chance to evolve. I guess Depersonalisation for me was like a long dark tunnel...going in as one person and comming out another. Or mabey like some kind of metarmorphosis, if that doesnt sound too cheesey. I've spent so many wasted years wishing for my old life back when all along i should have been making foundations for a new one.

Ok, i'm blabbering on now and its late, although i would like too discuss this further if anyone can relate to this. Stay safe!

I believe this syndrome could probably bring out creativity; especially in art, poetry & song.

As it takes alot of deep emotions to make the perfect one.

I don't know how this would enable creativity seeing how it is such a negative experience that usually saps people of energy. I think in the depths of a DP episode many would simply not even relate to the concept of art or artistic expression or feel the need to do anything other than try to cope with a strange and alien experience. Now if you came back from a DP episode feeling completely like yourself and then were able to use your negative experience as a source of ideas, then maybe it could be positive.

my creativity is awful or
i am in an awful sate. i do have ideas now and then little ones but they are
to put it exactly like advertisments!! i mean in duration and meaning!!
and i hate that.
i can't play music which is the only love of my life
i can't draw. because for some reason i can't draw the analogies correctly
i was perfect at that before
and i can't write stories. i loved to write sci-fi but honestly
i can't think of anything or project myself to any storie
i feel like a cripple and stupid.
instead of the charismatic super shy kid i used to be.
and i am not shy anymore for a weird reason.. probably because i don't care.
sorry to ramble...

Before DR/DP struck I'd never written a sentence in anger in all my life. Since DR/DP, I've written volumes of Fiction, some Poetry, and am generally brimming with ideas - some good, others dire. The whole traumatic experience has definately unleashed something in me. Whether this 'talent' (cough) was in me already, latent or not, I don't know.

I still can't sing, write music, paint, draw or do anything else artistic, but there you go.

My creativity has been utterly destroyed by this horrible monster. I can't draw, I can't write, I can't THINK. All I end up doing is staring blankly into space, trying to reassemble the hopelessly fractured images and thoughts swirling around in my head. Heck, it happened for a good 5-10 minutes while I was trying to write this pathetic little post. It's no wonder I lose track of time so often...

DP destroyed all my creativity, confidence and just brought such emmotional numbness, like my brain was sucked out, although mine has been chronic 24/7 maybe if it wasn't i might get a chance to be creative again. sucks for me period............
