I am reluctant asking questions on this board for fear you all have been over these things before.

But...I am wondering if daydreaming comes easy for any of you all when you are feeling symptomatic. I tend to want to drift in my mind, out of my mind. It just seems so easy and is a good escape. The subject of the dreams are many, to winning the lottery to being a suffering hero. But they work, for awhile. But if I do it too long I start to get a sense of fragility in my mind, as if I am going too far with my "self". I would assume too much of this harmful, but I am wondering if a little bit is almsot therapeutic. Any thoughts?

I am sorry for all these questions. I had gone many years without really knowing what I had, and it was not until a couple years ago when I found a drug related website where some folks have dp/dr that I started to relate a bit to real humans about this problem. Upon discovering this site I find myself as a new kid in a big city, for I discover every day another connection with you people that I have never spoke of to another human being. It is very validating and illuminating for me. I just wish this site had been here when this all started for me. I am glad it is here for you newbies.

Hey jft

Yes, this happens quite often for me as well. It makes good sense because DP is basically being locked into that state of daydreaming. Daydreaming is a healthy form of dissociation that allows your brain to take a rest for a minute. When you can't snap out of that daydreaming state, you are in DP land. So think of DP as a 24/7 daydream.
