Hi friends!
We need some positivity around here and I think it would be fun to get to know each other.
So I think it would be fun for you guys to share 5 facts about yourself (positive & not dpdr related.) (also I realize a lot of us feel pretty lost about ourselves right now but it's still doable)
It can be where you're from, any pets you own, random quirks or whatever!

I'll start
1. I absolutely love gardening
2. I've been married to my husband for 3 years
3. I have 2 dogs (border collie & a shi tzu) chickens, horses, sheep and a few kitties.
4. I could eat Mexican food for every meal, everyday for the rest of my life.
5. The Office is my Netflix go-to.

1) I am addicted to pizza.
2) I speak three languages fluently.
3) I am left handed, green eyed and 6'5'' so genetically I am pretty unusual, I guess.
4) I am twice divorced at the impressive age of just 33.
5) I am deathly afraid of heights and can't go three steps up a ladder without pissing my pants (but oddly have no problems with planes etc).

I'm quite boring really but I'll try to think of five things!

1) I'm (slowly) writing a horror novel.

2) I designed a strategic board game I'm trying to get published.

3) I'm a self-taught guitarist and play my own stuff.

4) I'm quite domesticated and enjoy cooking.

5) I watch comedy a lot and once wrote a comic novel.

Ok really cool! here we go

1) I am a troll. Not in a negative way, i love to prank my family and friends and we end up laughing together (yeah even despite dissociation I can still have some good laughter)
2) I have 2 cats, and i love animals
3) I love playing CS:GO, it's a shooting game, I'm pretty good at it.
4) I'm on first year of psychology in college, i really love studying the mind, emotions, physical body, and I think i'm creative and have many theories about the mechanisms of DP (even if they may be crazy and non-scientific)
5) I am a spiritual person, i believe we are souls, i believe there is an 'afterlife', i believe there is God (not a judgmental God like many religions say, but a some form of God or Source of life and the Universe)

Thanks for sharing!

Fact 5 and open mindedness will bring you peace in between your ears......

Been saying it for a long time now....DP sufferers are seriously clever people...

Just reading through these posts proves it...

James fact 1 is very important...simply because even though we may not be feeling too good we should never underestimate the power we have to make someone elses day better by making them laugh....

1) I absolutely love riding my cross country MTB off road in the summer sunshine, & do some 2 hour rides when able.

2) I recently left a cult after believing their nonsense for the last 24 years, & It's good to finally be free.

3) I'm really good at writing, & have been thinking about trying to earn a living from it.

4) In a sim racing competition in 2010, I came 58th in the UK out of 120,000 plus.

5) I used to do a lot of comping, & have won tons of stuff over the years.
Comping Space Monkey???

Have you been on tv and stuff like on 15 to 1 or other shows like Countdown etc....

This post was a great idea considering we all as anxious people have terrible low self esteem....

Its about time we all started realising and started becoming aware of the amazing things weve achieved and done in life (With or without DP)

We are all actually pretty damn kewl talented people...
