In a weird way i agree with you. I feel that dp makes me diffrent from the rest. We look at the world in a diffrent way. It changes you, its mind opening. In my case it really connected me to myself. I examined all my thoughts actions everything trying to figure out what was wrong, and it left me really in touch with my self. And buried deep in all the fear and the negitives im glad that i can find one positive... Experiences make you who you are . and sometiems... once in a while im kinda proud of that.
I must say ive had dp from so long the thought of not having it is scary.. Just molding in with everyother person. and life moving so fast not like with dp.
At the beggining i thought how could anyone live with this. I wanted to die. But i didnt even have the energy... I think its mostly because you feel so alone.. so fucking crazy.

That is like one of my favorite sayings!
Kate, I love what you posted here! I feel like I know myself much better now, too. I have way more self confidence and could really care less what people think (most of the time) That coming from a super people pleaser is really a step forward. I do still have my issues, but it's like I had a huge growth spirt in learning to deal with this. I do feel stronger!!!
