I need help How do I talk to a feinds with DP as well as me? it is weired bc i am in similar position-and i cant seem to get ANYTHING includnig words out of this friend. I suppose I am more of an extrovert....? NEED HELP FAST------thanks
You just talk to them like you talk to anyone else.. just realize that they are constantly thinking about what you're saying.. analyzing your every word and forming an opinion about whats being said. Just talk to them and if they talk back you're in luck.. if not just offer them ice cream, or something else completely random. Laughter.. is powerful like sadness.. it can be felt by someone with DP. Make em laugh and perhaps they'll tell you the secret to the universe (not that you'll ever want to know).
I don't know. I'm an extreme introvert and some times I want to talk about dp but mostly I don't. I only talk about it to some people. I would say don't push the issue. If they want to talk about it cool, but if not just let it go.
