Has anyone whose recovered or still going through this ever think about their past as in what life would be like if they hadn’t gotten dp? I keep picturing my life If I hadnt gotten this. Will recovery be worth it? Will I not think about this anymore?
I do this too, though it's more of couterfactual thoughts rather than thinking about the past.
I often think about what kind of person I would be in the absence of my issues. What career might I strive for? What type of friends would I seek out and have? Where might I be living? It's an impossible thing I answer because I can't truly imagine being anyone but myself, whoever that is.
