Have had dpdr for almost 2 years, a couple of months ago suddenly my perception and almost all my thoughts/mental Images are extremely Dreamy/fucked up/trippy its like a new perception just hit me its extremely hard to deal with and its barely liveable.

Best way to describe it, is like being extremely tired in your thoughts like you havnet slept for 24 hours or like you have taken some synthetic drug etc kinda hard to describe. Anyone Else experienced This? Or something similar?

Hi Kasper01,

are you able to describe more of your "new" symptoms?

Greets
everything feels kinda funny, its very hard to explain just like dpdr is hard to explain to a non dpdr person, its just feels like something is seriously wrong with my head like a screw is loose in my perception and thoughts/imagination like my brain is destroyed.

Extremely homesick too i feel like i dont know my family and i dont feel at Home in my own Home witch is horrible and sad, and i also experience impending doom about being stuck in this forever, witch is hell.

Been there two times. It feels like hell I don't want to recall it. i felt so empty and everything was weird, like something has changed and I don't belong anywhere. But it will pass and you will be back to normal.

Could you try to elaborate?
Well, I’ve had so many symptoms of dp/dr for many years – those who affect my vision, for example when I have an episode of dp I feel drunk or high though I’ve never been but other people describe it that way. Then it’s very difficult for me to function, everything looks very bright or sometimes dimmed, I barely keep my eyes open. I feel dizzy, numb, dreamy, dissociated etc.
And there are other “non-physical” symptoms which are more likely connected to my perception of everything and everyone and once they occur I know I’m screwed and that I’m going to feel like that for weeks or maybe months. The first time, it happened all of a sudden and I got this feeling of not belonging anywhere, for example when I hung out with my friends I felt so alienated in an unexplainable way, the city I live in seemed weird and unfamiliar, like I’m visiting it for the first time. I remembered everything, I had memories but It just didn’t feel like those memories are mine, it was more like I had lost my identity and now I long for the person I was. I remember trying to sleep as long as I could to avoid that but it simply didn’t help. I was in high school and thought that when I go to school where I had good time and good memories that scary feeling would go away but it didn’t. It lasted for 3 or 4 months and I was back to normal though not completely, I had other symptoms of dissociation but I was happy because that feeling that no place feels like home was gone. And I got it again after many years but it was not severe like the first time.. I felt like I don’t recognize my mom and my boyfriend and there was a constant panic and sadness, feeling of guilt. In my case the trigger might have been anxiety/family problems/toxic surroundings. Sensitive people are more likely to develop dissociative disorders I guess.. Wish you recover soon, all the best!
