This is weird everybody........I posted on several occasions about my DP now gone after about a year and a half torment session. Today I had the misfortune of being involved in a bicycle crash on a slippery road about half a mile from my house. Result: a two inch gash that had to be stiched, and worse of all, a possible torn or ruptured achilles tendon.....I won't find out until I go to the orthopedic next week. They just put me in a splint and on cruches. Under normal conditions I would have gone into full DP mode during times of intense stress and pain, but not this time; I remained fully aware and felt the intense pain as I had to bike on one leg home for about a mile. My heart rate and blood pressure remained low as well during the emergency room shenanigens, but no DP. Really weird because I could have used some disassociative emotion, something that always has been a part of me to a certain degree during times of stress

My pain threshold seems to be much higher, these days. I sliced a gaping wound in my finger the other day peeling suedes at work. I was watching TV. It took me a while to work out what had happened, and even when I did notice the freshly splattered blood, I stood there completely motionless. Retrospectively it's kinda funny to think about how my co-workers panicked and I just stood there. Oh, the wonders of having DP. :p

That is exactly what I'm alluding to. It seems when actual tangible medical mishaps occur I take it in stride, but DP has a life of it's own and you can't specifically pinpoint what's wrong. It's that "unknown" factor that terrifies us all with DP.
