Another trap we fall into in dp states is that when we recover,we will sort our lives out and get busy again.Its as if we go on a hostile strike against the world and ourselves because of our pain.
When I feel stronger I will look for a job
When this is over I will take on the world
When I recover I will set new world records,rise to dizzy heights and be famous because the world owes me.
To morrow,next week next year...but not now,Im too angry,Im too helpless..Im too clever at making excuses to do nothing and remain trapped in my own head.In a world of ifs,coulds,buts,shoulds,woulds we do nothing except postpone the pain of living everyone else feels and we continue living a shadow of a life,growing accustomed to our own excuses.

The world owes us nothing;we owe the world for lost time.

that is very true. i keep sayin to myself when i get back i will have a huge chip on my shoulder and i will live life to the fullest and enjoy and do everything i wanted to do, but how am i going to get there if i do nothing. its hard. i have no answers, but i guess we have to do something, but even if i distract myself i always feel unreal, dp is always there, everything still feels fake. its crazy.

Hola,
Hows this for spooky...I am starting to rely on my DP to get me out of situations where I dont want to listen to someone talking to me. With my DP It is SOOO easy to just "TUNE OUT" everyone and anyone, I am starting rely on this new found "tool" more and more. Is this like having a case of "Stockholm Syndrome"? Hmm...maybe I gave up on the meds too soon.:)

I wish you well.

Tony
