while pondering a few posts today it seems that alot of you feel as though your body and mind feels as though its one step behind,this is typical dp for me and it takes up an enormous amount of my time and mental energy...but does anyone else feel as though the further they venture away from home the more unreal and unsafe they feel ?
what actually causes this,i would have thought that by now i would be able to deal with this symptom but it is so debilitating...its a feeling of being a 3 year old child and yer mum leaving you on youre on ina busy shop etc...

hi JC,

I see you're still fighting this battle of yours. I do believe, for you, the further away from your physical home (safe place as a child, perhaps), the more intense this seperation feeling gets. And I believe it is as simple as that. I think you feel a loss of safety and get yourself all worked up with anxiety, wanting to run back home and pull the sheets over your head. So some people associate this particular symptom with being with them all the time, while yours manifest itself as you get further away from home.

There's no time limit placed on how long we keep on fighting these battles. I do believe it is in the continued addressing of it and questioning why, perhaps coming up with that answer, perhaps not...that we learn to walk away and leave that particular anxiety behind.

This is just my simple take on it.

Keep working at it JC. It's gonna happen for you.
