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...

I was just thinking about this yesterday. I don't think it's separation anxiety or wanting a safe haven, I think it's more that when you're in unfamiliar surroundings, there's a lot more info to take in. When you're at home, there are things your mind probably barely even notices anymore. When you're somewhere else, it has to take in everything. We're pretty sensitive to sensory overload. I am, at any rate.

Grocery stores and airports can be particularly bad for me. Just thought I'd throw that in.
