I'm not conceited enough to think that what I've been up to means very much to everyone on here...but here's an update for my friends, and hopefully, a couple of nuggets of hope or wisdom for people without a clue of who I am.

I've been to this site on and off for about a year and a half. I've experienced DP/DR severely since about 16. Unfortunately, my parents sent me packing because of it at about 18. I was attending college on scholarship for about two years when some severe health problems hit me besides the DP...headaches, chills. So I dropped out for a year. Luckily my major was medicine. I'll never take anything for granted again...life is so fragile.

I made the jump back into life about two months ago. I took all the knowledge I had at my disposal, and found the right doctor to treat me for...drumroll....hyothyroidism. My bloodtests were within normal limits, but the normal limits for TSH are purposely set very liberally. My symptoms are getting better...not all there, but better. I'm at classes again, in a relationship with a special girl...and landed a job teaching medical exams for Kaplan's tutoring service. 15 dollars an hour, and great hours. Its nice being the teacher and not the taught for once. And this is just vanity, but I even auditioned for a movie role this past month. Sure, I probably didnt get it, but you have to try sometimes. This post DOES have relevance to DP though. Sometimes I think we all undershoot our potentials here. Sell ourselves short. Taking gambles everyonce in a while in life pays off, though. Someone I knew once said that in your twenties you think everyone is watching and your scared, in your thirties you think they're watching and you dont care, and when you're in your forties, you realize noone was watching anyways. So I've stopped caring what others think of my failures, and it helps.

Well, I hope everyone on here is doing okay. Soulbro, SleepingBeauty, Wendy, Dreamer, Janine, Sc, Coucou, Happybunny, Jason, Rob, Lewis,DakotaJoe, Martin and everyone else I forgot to mention...I'm on every now and again, and I hope you all keep getting better too!

Peace!
Homeskooled :D

And there you have named one of the greatest secrets to happiness, lol....I'm serious!

Very cool updates, HS....and I couldn't be more pleased for you. LIVE. And enjoy every minute of it.

and, by the time you hit 50, you forgot you EVER cared, grin

p.s. My boyfriend taught at Kaplan for awhile - and loved it.
