I worry REALITY doesn't exist

It's like if you've been blind your whole life and that's all you've known, you don't know what sight feels like, but you know it's there, cause others say it is. But then if you've been able to see, then some accident causes you to go blind-- you know what sight is, you know it's out there, but after some time you forget what it feels like. You have a new reality. But you're also aware that others have something you don't.

I don't know. I just don't think I'd recognize reality if it bit me on my behind. I hear about it, and read it exists, but it always feels out of reach.

It's so sick but this DP/DR stuff is soooo hard to explain sometimes. Sometimes I think I'm just doing it to myself, and I choose to feel this way... And other times I know I don't because who the heck would want to feel like this.

Almost like, I was so afraid of this DP/DR would become my new reality that it ended coming my new reality.

Boy..... :roll:
^ I agree! This can relate to anyone, but I think that once I start doing better in my career and find a new girlfriend I'll start to feel better about life and as long as I stay busy.

A big part of it is staying busy, and being sucessful at what youre staying busy with.

At least that's what I think will help me get better. Dont know about the rest of you.

It's all the same and different for all of us. I know that sounds weird but, it makes sense to me.

Almost like when you dont like youre present reality, this disorder is a way for your mind to deal with it. In a way we need to make ourselves happy with our reality in order to start to enjoy it.

Does that make any sense?
