Hello I have dp for 5 years now maybe someone has experience with living with dp or tips? Like how can you have a job when nothing seems real and the dp is getting worser in stressfull jobs. And Im just not intrested in anything, everything feels meaningless. When people talk to me at my job its like im not there I just dont understand what they are saying, I cant follow conversations, I cant focus, I cant memorise, I feel stupid. Im prettending all the time, im lauging while I find nothing funny, I respond on questions while I don't know how to respond and I just dont care what they are saying. I want to feel again and be intrested in what people saying. Also I just dont have the energie for jobs, cant support sounds, and bright lights. I feel very warm when i hear sounds then Im scared and my heart is beating faster, feel much stress. So how do you guys find a job? How do you guys take care of family and friends, Im losing them... How have a relationship? I just want to be interested in things, I want to read but my thoughs seems not mine, I cant memorise what im reading, I forget afther 2 sec what I have read. This is so painfull for me I feel really stupid. Just cant do anything anymore. I try every day but im just an robot no emotions no pleassure. Just totally mixed up in my head.

It's a good question.

As for me when it comers to work, no way i could work a full 8hr day every day of the week. If a work day was more like 4-6hours i think i could do it.

I thought the same thing, I’ve made it through undergrad with pretty shitty dp/dr i even got into a doctorate program lol. It’s recently gotten pretty bad to where I’m so internalized that I don’t even know what I’m doing sometimes. I’m worried that all my hard work is gonna get ruined by this bullshit condition. Even though you feel alone, just know you’re not.

I am in the same exact boat! I really don’t know how anyone can work with DP. I am “doing” it but it’s definitely not me doing it. I am really considering ending things. I don’t see a way out. Dp has me so scared I don’t see how anything can be seen rational right now. I am non existent truly

Hi wow thank you all for the reactions and tips! Yes indeed the things that helps for me is sunlight and sport. I recently found a sport that I come little bit closer to my self, so I do that a lot. But most of the times I just dont have the energy and feel to much dp. I tried already some things to feel better, took lots of meds, nothing helped got worser, tried cbd oil, tried vitamins, avoid all the sensitive things. Went in psychical hospital for few months, lots of psychiator appointments. But they are all saying im in a psyhose and am just depressed. They just never diagnosed dp/dr because they know they cant fix it. Im eating very healthy, dont drink alcohol, dont smoke (cant support them anymore, cant even drink one bier) Tried to work but cant dp is getting worser and worser. Just ran away at my last job couldnt hold it anymore. So I quit working. Now I thought maybe I just need to run away from things, from stressy moments, from discussions, obligations, society, material stuff. So I bought me a van and im one month travelling now. But I need to push myself so hard to get up and cook and survive, dp stays the same. I cant do it anymore. I trie to get up otherwise I lay down in my bed sleep and being spaced out. Nothing helps feel so confused its never calm in my head. Going back home now and go to another doctor and ask for diagnose tests. My diagnose is ptsd,dp/dr but really want to be sure. Maybe I try the SGB shots...
