Hello,

Does anyone have problems with reading, writing, or driving due to their DP/DR? I guess I need to be more specific...All of the above have become naturally harder for me for me. I have been suffering from this off and on since I was 19 and now I'm 36 and now it feels worse than ever. I am to the point now where I feel like I should stop working because it's gotten that bad. It's almost like I'm playing a video game, and I've gone from level 1 to 100 in difficulty.

Thanks,

Zach

Hey Zach,

I relate to this. I've collected a ton of books throughout dp (from 16 to now, I'm 34), and I haven't read them, it's too hard I make it in chapter 1 and then put it down. Driving is a big no for me, especially at night. My motor skills went away since day 1 of dpdr. I also find it difficult to speak in person. Even walking in reality is strange...

When my depression was really bad, it was too much of a mental strain to listen to the radio.

Serious depression can render you into a near vegetative state. There were times I was

driving someplace on my day off, and found myself halfway to my place of work, which

was in the same general direction but not my intended destination.

My cognition is the worst, my memory span is destroyed. I forget everything. It's the worst part of dp/dr in my opinion, it makes you feel like you lost everything. I was a very bright smart, sharp quick person. But I turned into a retard almost. I still do all the things you mentioned above, but it's very very hard. I just keep pushing
