Hey guys, so I've made some progress. I believe in the world again and that it's real for the most part but now my worried are focused on real work diseases. One being dimentia. I'm very nervous. Is it normal for people with depersonalization to experience this? It's like I know where I am and what everything is but at the same time I feel like I don't know what anything is and I fear maybe that's a sign that my memory is going to dissapear. Ik what every thing is trust me. Ik I'm in my house in my town in state of New York blah blah blah etc. but I feel at the same time I don't exactly know where I am or who or what everybody is? Is that normal for depersonalization sufferers? Also there are times I feel like I just woke up and what I mean by that is like I kinda forget what happened and it feels like I just entered a new moment. My therapist says that's the dissociation and it's common to lose chunks of times. Please let me know guys. Deep down ik I'm fine! But it's hard not to worry with depersonalization sometimes! Thanks !

This is all classic DP!

The distorted concept of time and impaired memory are very common in DP...

My memory is so bad. I struggle to have conversations with people for no reason other than I can't remember things. My advice to myself is start a diary, even if you just jot down a few lines per day. When you read over it, it will help recall the memories.

If you were to do this, look back through the pages and not recall any of what you've written down- then I'd be worried and would see a doctor.

TOTALLY I have that too. It's really hard. I literally researched dementia thinking maybe I had some freakish early onset form of it. Same goes for other things, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, alzheimer's, etc. I completely understand what you're going through.

I also had to start writing notes and putting sticky notes on things so I would remember really basic human needs type things. Like eating. My memory was just gone. I felt like I was skipping through time. Unaware for extended periods of time. I would look at the calendar today and it would be wednesday the 12th, I would look away, and then look back again and it would be tuesday the 2nd (or whatever) time passed very strangely. If I could have felt fear I would have.
