Feeling pretty alone here. Since dp/dr,I literally get depressed at the stupidest,most random things.
Examples:

1) Watching the news and thinking about how we live in a world of suffering depresses me 2) depressed at seeing 'fake' and 'contrived' people. 3) feeling like the world and society and socialising is just so heavy and burdensome 4) feel like my mind cannot take much more. Feel like a psychotic break is imminent.

Arghh. I did not have this before dp.

Can any1 relate?

Yupp. I just learned about the yale haloween incident and the brand new mass shooting in texas which was the biggest in texas history. It's all so depressing and incomprehensible. And the yale thing is so weird and scary, considering it's an elite ivy school league or whatever they call it. Yet all the students have the mind of a 2year old. I actually just have to share the video it's just so shocking to see. These are the "top" people who will lead the U.S in the future.

Hi i know what you mean ever since i got dp things make me depressed easy compared to before I got dp .
I feel i get affected by things really bad and i get angry over stuff thsts not in my control or doesn't even affect me personally.
Ever since dp I have a really hard time controlling my emotions so i think that's why things affect me so much now.

I️ feel opposite. Like I️ don't care at all or have any love or a soul. I️ said to someone the other day, I️ wouldn't even care if my parents died. I️ was way more effected by stuff before dp. I️ was a kind and compassionate person. My dad even said the other day
" you used to be a kindhearted person, what happened?"

If only he knew....

Yup. Gird up your loins. This is the new and improved pampered generation who throw fits and bouts and all sorts of tantrums in varying degrees when they are challenged, criticized or even talked about. All I heard was whimpering, moaning and whining. This generation gets so many privileges that others in the past never had.

For goodness sake, I'm 29, so I sadly belong to this generation and yet I don't take the little things for granted. Even before my DP I was thankful for many things and appreciated the tools and things available around me. I come from a broken and many other broken things and I never whine to others about that shit, if I want ot do that I do it with a very trustworthy person that is close to me or my counselor and NOT make some public outcry because my insecurities are too much to deal for myself...whiny whiny.

Just hearing them talk and hearing their logic...made no sense. These individuals are the type to nag and complain about dinner being too hot or too cold. They are the ones that fear challenges so they in turn gang up on one person, yes sure, this is a professor who has a responsibility but for goodness sake...wait until you acuall find out what they are complaining about. This country is getting dumber, more insecure, more proud, less open-minded, more egotistical, etc.

You cant argue a point with some people these days, their emotions get the best of them and they will justify their logic with loud talking or just gangign up wth other likeminded numbnuts so that way you look like the black sheep.

Your subject line hit the nail on the head.

That is a big part of your problem.

You can't relate to people.

So you should seek out people you can relate to- intellectually stimulating people. Nourishing friendships. Loving relationships. A therapies that's a good fit (you will know because you will be interested in seeing them).

My dp escalated when I was around people that were totally wrong for me - no common interests, not on same intellectual level, not a healthy relationship, dissimilar goals, etc.

Find things that make you feel whole and interested in life.
