I do too alot of the time. One question tho, do you start the sentence in one way, and finish it differently? Like mixing present /future, skipped over a middle part etc? Its like my brain has an idea of what should come out, but i cant make it a finished product, if that makes any sense.

Classic DPDR. I have exactly the same, and it hit me literally overnight. Like a light switch I suddenly couldn't focus, lost peripheral concentration, started making typing mistakes, etc. It was like instant ADD.

Your whole DP condition hit you Just like that with no warning?
Yes. It started with just feeling surreal and dreamlike all of a sudden while walking around. Then I took another hit about a year and a half later when all of a sudden the above (cognitive) symptoms hit me. Both times in an instant. Needless to say I've been pretty afraid of any further sudden downturns.

Thats perfectionism as well as poor concentration ASM...Another side effect of anxiety disorders and DP!

We check, check and check again! Whether its windows at night before bed or typing posts in a forum or a scarey thought that enters our head randomly...

We hate making mistakes and are bad at trusting our instincts (In fact we dont trust our instincts most of the time)

We are left with, "Did I ?" or "Didnt I ?".........."Is it ?" or "Isnt it ?".........."Will I ?" or "Wont I ?"..........etc etc etc...

Anxious people hate making decisions because we fear the consequences....We end up totally confused as to what to do...But when it comes to perfectionism we have no problems making decisions...In fact we are rigid and positive when it comes to our perfectionism...

The result is a rigid person stuck in routine who at the same time is terrified of making choices and of taking on new challenges in life....Now if thats not a confused fearful individual I dont know what is???

DP = Confusion and Fear!!!
