Lately I've been obsessing over the passing of time and it it's really fucking up my brain. I think about how the present really only lasts a second before it's just a memory in my brain. I feel like I'm not perceiving time in a linear way anymore and I feel like right now only exists and past events like 5 or 10 minutes ago feel like they never happened. I think about all the events that happened today or yesterday and they just all feel so unreal like they never happened. I hope I'm making sense because it's hard to explain. I get irrational thoughts like if I just popped into existence this very second along with all my memories.

Does anyone else have experience with these thoughts or feelings? I've read that weird time perception is semi-common with people who have dp and dr. I feel like I'm going crazy, if anyone could relate it would make me feel a lot better.

Yup been there obsessed on that. Sometimes I’ll trip out how every millisecond is the past and there’s always something occurring in my brain. I’ll be like what’s the present? What’s the moment? How can I be in a moment if time moves that fast? Yeah it’s kind of trippy. Linkin park guy def has some dp going on it seems, he had that line wear he talked about how the clock ticks life away it’s so unreal... straight up

Thank you so much, it's reassuring to know that it went away for you. I have severe OCD so it's been in my mind pretty much all week and I can't seem to get it out of my mind. Dp and Dr really make everything about reality seem so bizarre and time I feel is one of the weirdest concepts in life. Has anything helped you get these thoughts out of your mind? I started doing meditation yesterday and I hope it helps.

I was on the bus home today and could not remember getting the bus there it seemed like it had never happened. Yh it's so weird the present does exist really you think about something happening in a mo and then you've done it or it happened and the present is autopilot any way

I don't know I just scared of thinking about it ,you can't get rid of this thoughts bro there's no way to forget about it you can't forget it by trying to forgetting about it! but you can replace your thoughts and forget about your weird thoughts
Read stories books think about that stories think about your friends think about whatever interests you
