Is DP/DR worse than Schizo?

Lately I have been thinking that this disorder that I have, whatever it is, may possibly be worse than schizophrenia? Why? Because Schizo people have no idea that something is wrong with them. Where on the other hand we DP/DR people are overly aware that something is wrong with us, thus the reason we keep feeling like crap. Honestly, have you ever seen anyone on this board with schizophrenia? No, because they have no idea that something is wrong with them.

This DP/DR stuff makes life hell, because we aren't seen as crazy, no one knows what we are going through, we are so aware that things aren't right and constantly are thinking about the way we feel, and we are expected to continue on with life like nothing is wrong. And it blows.

I guess just the fact that we are so overly aware and analytical of our conditions and always analyzing how we feel. That is what I was trying to say. If I was able to not think about how I feel, how I felt last week, how I am gonna feel in the future then I would be fine. But instead I think about how I feel 24/7. For example, I was watching a movie and picture how I would feel in that current situation that is on the screen. Or when I have to go to the bathroom, I picture how I will feel walking to the bathroom. Or if my friends ask me to go out, I picture how I am gonna feel at the bar. Or on Sunday night, when I have to go back to work the next morning, I think about how I am gonna feel at work. It sucks.
Ok, there is a difference between DP/DR and Schizo, but sometimes I wish I had no idea that something was wrong with me. In no way would I want to be Schizo, but if this DP/DR isn't hellish, I don't know what is!

btw, aren't these complain posts becoming a bit redundant

how are you gonna get better, if you just keep complaining and complaining man, we talk about this all the time, dwelling on it gets you nowhere.
I agree...but no need to call me out in the middle of a thread. Was your second post really necessary? C'mon plr. It's cool if we discuss it between IM and shit, but just keep it like that. No need to call me out on shit in the middle of a thread. Secondly, you have NO idea how I feel. None what so ever. So until you do, don't judge and think that it is that easy to just not dwell on it. Obviously, you are able to not let yours effect you that much. I can't say the same for myself. You even said last week, I don't really understand the detached thing. So there you go. You have no idea how I feel. Until you learn that, don't be so quick to judge and assume. Peace.

kelson im just trying to help man

i guess just in a different way, Im not into the whole " paragraphs of useless advice " style. I think the only way to get better is to find the inner strength and just move on.
I understand...I'm working on trying to find that inner strength...unfortunently I haven't found it yet...but I'm working on it. I appreciate the help, just know that it's easier said than done sometimes.
