Hey all...

Wow, I just came out of 5 terrible, terrible days. Symptoms were the worst they've been in a long time. I was pretty much bed-bound. I have absolutely no idea why they were so terrible and for 5 days straight. Usually I will have one or two really bad days in a row, but never 5. Having so many bad days in a row makes me scared to plan to go out and do anything for fear of having another bad day. I can't help but wonder what triggered these bad days when I seemed to be doing better. Some of you may attribute my bad days to some deep psychological trigger but I really don't think that's the case. I just wish I knew what, if anything, led to these bad days so that I could prevent them from happening again. I am sure I am not the only one who goes through these mysterious periods of worsened symptoms. Do you also wonder what causes them? Just looking to relate to someone. :)

Yes, the last few days have been very bad for me. I feel like I don't know what I'm doing, on auto-pilot, so distant from things. It's the weirdest it's been in a long time for sure. The thing is, I really don't know what triggered it.

That's the most unsettling thing for me b/cuz I cannot always put my finger on why or how my symptoms started kicking my ass to a greater degree. I feel for you, with the 5 days in a row, and I wouldn't let it get too much in my way of planning. If you get into an activity that you planned and feel bad, have an out, whatever works for you. But try to be good to you, (you know the saying "Easy does It...But Do It) build the strong parts of you up, so they can help out and encourage the scared parts? ie; keep up on as much daily stuff you can. Thinking peaceful thoughts your way,

UniG, I've had that, and I feel for you going through it.

There's not much else I can say that you haven't heard before, but one thing I have noticed is that, occasionally, I've felt really bad and decided to just do stuff anyway. Every time I actually feel better than I did before feeling bad in the first place, no idea why.

I don't think you need to worry too much, though. You will pull out of this, I'm sure. It might be due to something so small as a change in medication dosage (if you're upping dosage there's nothing "wrong" with that, but a change will temporarily make you feel different sometimes).

Anyway, I hope it gets better. All the best.

uni g I feel really bad when I become inactive. I don't know if this is anyone else's trigger but mine is inactiveity and people.
I have a paradox of decisions to make about being around people being alone and inactive and being lonely. My triggers are being alone and being around people, how do I deal with that?

I look up to people like you on this board uni g. I think that you are doing a lot better than I am and I am sure that you will pull through this illness.

I've felt really bad and decided to just do stuff anyway.
Monkeydust is right, just do stuff anyway. Being productive and active is the best way to beat dp/dr. I hope you feel beter soon uni g.
