My worst fear is being alone...which is ironic because I'm currently blocking people out of my life because I just dont want them to see me like this. I'm just in a constant stupor and its embarrassing.

it WAS my worst fear, until learning that it is almost everyone's worst fear with this hellish disorder. it was a great comfort to learn what i had has a name and that people don't actually go crazy from it....

Yep, I worry that I have early stage psychosis, even though I know I don't. Somehow I still manage to worry that I do. Earlier on, for example, I saw black cobwebs in my room for a second when I walked in. :? Also, when I was sitting in a toilet cubicle at work, I realised I had forgotten what the layout for the toilets was.

I hear you on that. A nasty cycle there.

I go crazy almost every day. When I get that feeling... I can't feel anything else. I could do something very bad and have no immediate regret.

yeah, i've recognized that same feeling too. i find it best to try and immediately distract myself from it somehow, because the recognition that you "could do something very bad and have no immediate regret" leads quickly to the fear that you "will do something bad" which increases anxiety/fear and makes the dp/dr even worse.

but you don't go crazy every day...you FEEL like you are crazy. it is important to make that distinction. "going crazy" implies that you have no recognition that something is wrong in your feelings/thought processes.

You're right. I FEEL crazy. I can still draw a line between good and bad. It's just a very thin line.
