Hi friends!
Yes I'm still here but I'm still doing better all the time.
One thing that's bothered me lately is time. One of the first things that I noticed before I knew what was happening to me is that time felt like a blur. It was strange. Like time was speeding by. Now that same symptom is bothering me. I feel like time has been flying by and I can't seem to be content or in the moment either. I miss that normal living day by day feeling. It's causing me a bit of anxiety. Like life is just passing by and I'm not even in it fully to enjoy it. It's just strange and uncomfortable.
Anyone else experiencing/experienced something similar?

Yes....But I believe its down to abnormally poor concentration levels....Almost like poor concentration tends to speed time up...Lunch time comes along and your left thinking what the hell was I doing all morning...Like did I just dream everything I did this morning???????????????

Just try to multi task for a while and watch what happens to your concentration and also your time perception...

The other thing to remember is that we are in such a heightened state of awareness that we tend to over observe and give too much attention to stuff like time perception amongst other things...

We are basically hyper aware of everyday things normal people just take for granted....Lets face it our DPed minds exaggerate alot of stuff...

It feels like the last year has been a blink. I hate this symptom it makes for having absolutely ZERO memory which people notice in me. They [point it out even bc i just dpont remember anything thats happening to me.

Even after DP, my time perception doesnt seem to have changed. I dont feel like it is October, time flies, and I am terrified. Funny that time, especially the date is the biggest trigger for my anxiety/OCD, whatever DP left me with.
So I think its because excessive worrying. Your brain needs time to create certain memories, but anxious thoughts seem to interrupt this process.
