I'm feeling forums isn't helping.

People saying stuff like it's fine to believe in solipism isn't helping.

Since I went on a forum and found out there was a term for how I feel I have felt this word into my head every minute of the day, I've felt drained, like I can't love anymore feel numb about life.

If this is such a common symptom with depersonalization one would think there would be some meds rather people on forums thinking it's fine to believe in solipism.

I never felt this way months ago since coming on forums it's put these ideas into my head and finding out every thought has a silly name attached to it.

Different philosophies and different ways of thinking arent bad. Believing in solipsism isn't a disorder that needs to be fixed. It's only when it becomes such an obsession that it ruins your life that you need meds or anything.

I agree that forums dont help people actively trying to recover dont help however. It just gives you another thing to obsess over and to keep it in your head.

Yes but I don't really want to think about this and it does affect just life I can't go out without being anxious.

Solipsism is anxiety related is it not with depersonalization? I don't think it's healthy to believe in solipism and most non anxiety people have thrown the idea out. Also I read there's other crazy ideas doing the rounds I question the meaning of life and uncertainty when you are not around ect so this is the issue..

If solipsism was true the opposite gender would not exist that would be strange. Also if it was true would 3rd and 4th genders not exist? Why only two why would I only male exist?

Solipsism is the idea that you can only PROVE that your consciousness is the only one that exists. Its just an extreme form of idealism, which is the idea that the only things that exist are things that exist in both you and other peoples consciousness.

The things you just talked about don't disprove solipsism in the slightest. People aging could just be your brain imagining peoples appearance changing over time. Reproduction could just be your brain creating new "NPC's" in your reality. Only 2 genders exist because your brain decided there were 2 genders.

However all of this is going off the assumption that solipsists think that reality is fake, which isnt true. Once again they only believe you cant PROVE that anything else actually exists. After all, the only reality and existence you ever perceive is your own.

The thing that dpdr sufferers get wrong is they assume that nothing else exists, which is kinda ridiculous imo

This is nonsense.

If age and others do I must not exist either because the process of me aging is the same as everybody else. Solipsism does not suggest I'm not real it's the opposite it's nobody else is real.

If I cook my dinner I can smell it, see it and taste it. If I come in from work to my dinner cooked logic suggest the sausage was fried but you are saying the magic man made it it just appeared like Star Trek and the food replicator. It only becomes cooked if I stand there?

There can only be two genders because it's the same with animals. Two of the same sex do not work to reproduce. If females don't exist Must have got here another way. Yet I still went through childhood and grew up like everybody else. There is a theropy that in reincarnation the previous soul stays with you until you are older but that's nothing to do with solipsism.

Listen reality is fake if you say you can't prove it. What solipsism can't prove is yes life could be a trick or an illusion but you can't prove millions of people are not part of this virtual experience too.

I go back to solipsism again I never heard of it so my mind made it up did it? Imagining people over time well I notice my furniture getting old I notice carpets wearing down and clothes getting old. So things do get old because time does pass. What you suggest is when I open a door everything appears when I close the door nothing is behind it. For that to happen the virtual experience would have to be beyond what human computers produce today for example a PlayStation game isn't as detailed as real life.

Solipsism is as bonkers as flat earth theory. Solipsism is saying everything just appears, joe bloggs is having that conversation because I'm here, nobody else deserves to come to earth and live a life only me im the chosen one. If solipsism is real it can't also prove millions of people are plugged into computers experiencing different versions of the earth. If solipsism is real no aliens exist because only earth exists. People breathing is all a lie, yet I'm breathing so if they are not really breathing neither am I? This is where it's bonkers "I" is so alike millions of others if you are going to doubt others existence then truth is you can't exist either but if you don't exist I would not be able to ask this question.

The fact is solipsism suggest you are the only one. But my post suggests you can’t exist either which goes back to depersonalization. And how else did I get here did the magic man teleport me down here if I have a family and watch them grow up do they vanish when I vanish? You watch them being born for then to not exist when I’m not here? It goes back to another theory everyone is pointless that’s another debate.

Genuinely not trying to worry you because based on your other post you seem to be struggling with these kinda thoughts. If its any consolation, i can definitely say that I exist and am a conscious person, and am almost 100% sure everyone else is too. There's nothing to be freaked out about. You need to get reinvolved with life because your obsessions with these thoughts are gonna ruin you. I was just trying to explain its possible to think about these things without it becoming unhealthy. If you really want to talk about it more, just pm me, because i forgot how triggering it can be to talk about these things when youre dealing with dpdr.

Just get a grip stop being stubborn and realize that ur not the only one. yeah we all have our own perception and maybe we all have different beliefs but we are still human beings living an experience called life. obviously other consciousnesses exist other wise u would know all languages and know everyones name before being introduced. pls get a handle and go out into the world and make it a better place. helping others is where u will finding meaning. be artistic, go places. like eminem said u got one shot. get out there
