I have this upsetting problem:

Throughout the day things appear to slightly change, especially my perception of people. For example, I could wake up one morning and see my neighboor, who I've known for some time, and for no reason perceive him as a total genius, an ugly person can be beautiful, a fat man, skinny. These perceptual shifts are related to mood, but I'm on a mood stabalizer, and the shifts don't quite correlate. The way I see myself changes all the time as well. I NEVER look the same in the mirror.

Is this simply an aspect of derealization? Or are these changes due to another problem?

Do these strange, scary, changes happen to you guys?

Do you even understand what I'm talking about?

I get wierd stuff like that when it comes to seeing other people. I don't physically see them changing into what my perception of them is, but I do get something similar where I perceive them differently in my head. I find it frustrating, nevertheless, I attribute it to DPDR because this only seems to occur when I'm going through DPDR :) This used to happen to me alot when I did drugs also. It may have something to do with the creative part of the brain. If it gets bothersome, talk to your doc. Hang in there.

DR is the worst of the two. I get it way more than DP. I feel like I'm living in a damn cartoon, and everything seems so unfamiliar 24/7.
