Today I'm walking down the corridor in college, and I realize I haven't thought about my DP or anxiety all morning!

And of course what does that start? The feelings of DP.

I am beginning to realize I have been in this cycle for so long, my mind feels the need to self-sabotage whenever I feel a sense of normalcy. It's a response, a conditioned reply I have accustomed myself to.

The question now is, where in this thought process can I intervene, and 're-route' it?

Ha, yes! But I think you're halfway there... If all it takes is a simple thought about DP to trigger it, then all it takes is not getting that thought to prevent it from happening. I know you can't force yourself to not think, but if there was a way that those thoughts could be made quieter, have their power taken away from them or just silenced altogether, then you may not get DP much anymore. Which shows that DP could simply be a symptom of an unhelpful thinking style.
