This is an amazingly helpful and supportive choice of words, thank you. When I start entering the cycle of bad thoughts again I read this, and it helps me sit back and realise nothing is as bad as it seems, I must just embrace the strange physical sensations as they'll eventually go, its all in my mind and I need to stop being so over-anxious and such a compulsive thinker. Cheers to youI agree with this solution. Anybody who disagrees is pretty much validating what you've said. By saying the experience is too difficult to deal with they are obviously siding with their thoughts. If you know that things feel unreal, you have to have sense of what feels real otherwise you wouldn't know the difference. Or it wouldn't be a 'problem'. The irony of dp or Dr is that you only realize how ridiculous it is once you're outside of it and everything has come back into balance. The best way to gain power over anxious thoughts is to let them be, and see them for what they are: thoughts. If you believe thoughts can hurt you than voilà, you're a great candidate for Dr or Dp. I can guarantee that neither has ever hurt you in any way. You have probably only ever experienced suffering. Suffering is in your mind. It's the attachment to these thoughts. Every moment you have the ability to focus on something other than dp or Dr. Don't feed the thoughts. Do nothing about the thoughts. Do something else instead. Also, relax and allow yourself to feel the way you do. No feeling is capable of lasting forever. If you think that you experience Dr or dp 24 hours. It's simply not true or possible. There are moments in your day when you are focused on something other than Dr or Dp, but since you're so used to looking for symptoms and not difference you will probably disagree with me. It's okay, you're just experiencing a pattern of chronicity. Follow the steps outlined above. They are golden. Your mind is tired. It wants to return to it's natural state, but it doesn't need your 'help'. It needs your attention to be spent somewhere useful instead. The person who is truly in control of their mind realizes that the best thing to do in order to deal with negative thoughts is to never entertain them and just observe what they do instead. Eventually you will get distracted by life and there will be a point where you forget to look more and more and then finally it's gone. You're an obsessive thinker if you have Dp or Dr. That's to your advantage though. Find something else to obsess over. Just not this. When it comes to dp and Dr do nothing. When it comes to your life, do something.
Oh, and quite obviously thank you to the original thread post, that is also extremely valued and it will help me overcome this greatly.
