    Emptiness suppressing suicidal thoughts?

    For the last few years, and more so for the past few months, I've felt numb and emotionless and unmotivated. It isn't there all the time but it seems to be there for a good portion of the day, especially at night and when I am alone. I've noticed that the empty feeling usually follows after I...

    I've suffered from DP/DR for about 7 years now. My anniversary of my diagnosis has just recently passed. I've heard that DP/DR goes away on its own, especially if it's the result of heavy drug use. My DP/DR is trauma based. I won't get into all of it, but let's just say that over the course of...

    Derealisation? Daydreaming? What is this???

    Every couple of months I go through some sort of strange spell where I feel separated from my reality. Like I'm supposed to be a different person living a different life. It is usually triggered by a dream, fiction book, or new tv series. Sometimes it is specific, where I become fixated on a...

    How do I come back to Earth?

    Hello, everyone. I need some advice. I am starting to feel like a real life Pinocchio. When I was a kid, I daydreamed and played pretend just like all of the other kids. But while that went away for most kids by the time they hit their double digits, it only got worse for me. You see, I have...
