i feel pain but i think it's not as much as it was before this dissorder....
i went to the dentist today and i can't say i had a rough time(and i had to take a tooth out!) only the shot was a little pin prick.. i left worrying because i didn't eperience enough pain.
for example right now yes my gums hurt... but it] doesn't bother me, this hell i'm living bothers me much more...
i am thinking if i could have an arm cut and still not care..
is this some side effect of dp? or ptsd more likely?
the idea of my mind not processing pain is freaking me out

wishing a
happily ever after...

For me pain is sometimes much much worse than it was before I got dp/dr. Sometimes I now trip out about pain the same way I do about everything else. I have gotten some pretty bad injerys and felt almost no pain at all but at other times I got very small injerys and felt tremendous pain. For me pain comes in waves, sometimes it is very intense and sometimes it doesent exest at all. I see light and hear sound and even think about things the same way I feel pain. Sometimes light is very bright and its hard to see, other times it seems to dark. Sound sometimes scares me because it seems so louad and other times I cant even hear people talking to me. Sometimes my thoughts are extream and very intense with great meaning but other times I don't seem to be thinking at all.

I am certain that this is all because of the drugs I took when I was younger. I know this because when I was on the drugs I feelt this way to an extream. The bad acid trip I am on now is just an evil echo of the origanal trip I had when I was 16.

hi sheep. I relate to this. I once cut myself accidently on wire, but i just thought it was clothing stuck and only realized it was me when blood came through my clothes. it has happened quite alot that i just dont register pain as i have before. I think its a ptsd thing for me but is hard to say as i have both ptsd and dp so im not 100% on where it stems from. But my thinking is that its ptsd as its somthing that seems to occure even when im not dp'd.
