I have read that many people here in this board feel their DP worsen during sunny days. Also fluorescent lights seem to aggravate DP state in many of us. However, I LOVE sunny days and feel always more alive and less derealized when the sun is shining. Fluorescent lights are no probrem to me either, though I do not like artificial light.

I also have wondered how people feel better when wearing glasses, as for me wearing glasses makes my DR feel worse. Maybe this is bc I have very strong near-sightedness (more than -10) and glasses shrink my view quite a lot and also my vision is always "framed" with glasses. Contact lenses do not shrink the view, nor do they frame it - and what is most important for me: while wearing contact lenses I don't feel looking at the world behind glass, which I already feel bc of the icy wall of derealization.

I remember that when I first got DR, I used to take my glasses off and sometimes could get rid of DR by watching the world without them. Unfortunately this stopped working quite soon though. :(

But, the point of my post is to wonder why we are so different - why sunny days make DR worse for some people and I feel better? And why some people feel that wearing glasses feels better, when I feel the contrary? I don't have any anxiety, maybe the partial reason lies there? I don't really know, but I find these differencies interesting, as they feel so paradoxical to me.

I absolutely HATE strong sunlight, especially in the spring when the sun is very strong. I also don't feel weel in fluorescent light.

I don't know why it's different for you. I guess that not all people with DP are sensitive to light, allthough many are.

i like the sunlight its comforting, especially after alot of rain and snow, i sure as hell think its better than rain, my dr gets worst when i wear sunglasses because it makes the world even more fake for me, as if im in some video game for nintendo, DR vision sucks! i cant get used to it, its too fuckin trippy im sick of it, im sick of how i cant understand it. Its not like you can describe this shit really, I think our nuerotransmittors for perception get slowed down seriously. WTF ! WTF IS THIS CRAP, THIS IS BULLSHIT! im sorry i only got 5 hours of sleep last night and i feel jumpy, i just want this shit to end for all of us, its affecting our lives so bad, i can feel my whole future going down the drain because of this scum that has a fucking name.
