Anyone got any tips on 'How not give a flying fluorescent fu*k' about something?

There's several things going on for me at the moment that are bothering me. And, the fact that they are bothering me, is bothering me.

I love being me.

Honest. :roll:

Actually, if you want to get serious, if there are things bothering you, I think you need to deal with your feelings. It was the fact that you HAD feelings at all about things that I was making a "joke" about when I said pray for a bad case of DP.

I don't think you should force yourself not to care about things.

I think you should just be who you are. You are a person. You care about things. Don't turn yourself into someone who rejects his personhood on the one hand (wants to "not care" about something) and then claims to want to feel something on the other ("I am a zombie.").

What's bothering you, Mr. Mole?

Good point, Sojourner.

It's silly things that are making me feel a bit anxious, which in turn is making me anxious becuase I'm so frustrated I'm anxious in the first place. :?

I was fiddling with this thought last night what should I do to prove to my mind at least my subconcious mind taht I dont care or trick it even though i do :).

Dp/Dr is like walking on a tightrope, tilt either way you fall off. Let anxiety in and you fall off a balanced feeling. So to show that you dont care and make it stick i feel the best way to do that is not to fight your feelings.

Accepting your feelings for what they are is probably one of the best methods I have found. Do not try to fight the thoughts out of your head, accept you ahve the facts dont dwell on it, and keep doing something. I feel the less energy you use against a thought the better chance you have. Accepting I have anxiety thoughts makes it easier than fighting every battle with them.

But thats my two cents.
