Crowds and being in large spaces used to make my Dp about a hundred times worse.. I have always been an avid concert-goer and honestly things would become SO unreal and go in slow motion. Now I have no issue with it anymore, I can go to concerts and be in other crowds without issue.
Bright sunlight INSTANTLY causes DP for me no matter how good I was feeling just before that. And when I'm out on the streets in sunny Singapore with a whole bunch of people around me....let's just say I get the jitters so bad I'm now accustomed to wearing black shirts so the coffee stains don't show. :roll:
I think that's because of the noise crowds make and too much things to focus on at the same time.Our DP/DR'd minds are not used to that,they just can't concentrate on those situations.What we want is peace and quite.Otherwise we tend to freakout.
