I?ve been wondering, what is it based on, that mentally challenged people shouldn?t stay at home staring at the wall (even if they wanted to) and instead get moving and go to work or anywhere etc.? I haven?t been doing the last much in quite a while and I admit I?m not getting better. I just wonder what?s the point of being active if it gives you nothing and feels like nothing, I?ve read many say no matter what they do, it doesn?t help, which also makes it harder. I would like to want to get up and go to the uni, but I just don?t. So why should I, will my brain cells start partying again if I feed them with sights and sounds? (I?m not being hostile, just asking so that I?d say ?ohhh, that?s why?now I?ll gotta hurry up and go collect insects?.
You may want to say "duh" :roll: , and you're welcome.

Even if the theory does not work for some (dp relief) one still gains from getting on with life and getting out and collecting insects becasue it can temporarily distract, may increase some happy hormones, and all in gives a little something more to a day than staring at a wall. I relate though to your thoughts, for sometimes when out and about I jsut feel like shit (if not worse) and ask the same question. But many times I feel maybe jsut a bit better than shit, and that is postive, and sometimes I jsut feel good and normal, and it is becasue I initally got the feet of the bed and on the floor. Just my thoughts is all.

it will eventually get better

but also

if i go out and take a walk or go to the library when i don't want to...

I HATE it and feel worse!

But only because I'm more of an active party person.

if I go out to a bar where there is a cute guy i have a chance of seeing and all my friends will be there and we can dance to music, then I feel great, I love it!

if I go to the "uni" to study, i hate it! but if I go to the uni to go to one of the classes that interests me, i love it!

it's not just where you go, it's doing what you secretly want to do, even if it's something as "silly" as flirting nonstop with boys or reading about Paris Hilton or playing with makeup. Anything. ANYTHING.

Maria - ask yourself a question. Are you happy ? Would you be happy if your DP went ? And if (when) it does, would you continue to stay at home doing bugger all ? I doubt it somehow.

You've got to realise that is your illness is making you stay at home and feel like you're not going to enjoy anything, or do anything.

tack for replies, I'm happy as a drugged penguin for response. And that's a lovely picture, just sorry for the family she ate. Sigh, this dp just seems to overpower everything, for instance, when I meet a good friend I can't get excited of her company at all but just be quiet sunk in my own world- like a zombie. This applies to every other situation too, nothing can pierce my dead zone. Everything feels exactly the same. That's frustrating. How do I know what to do when all is covered in a big fat blanket? But I've taken one step forward, nowadays it actually starts to feel uncomfortable to stay in bed after I've woken up...yey!
