Depersonalization Disorder: Overcoming Attack And Getting Over It
Depersonalization disorder is the third most common psychological symptom after feelings of anxiety and feelings of depression.
People experiencing depersonalization have the feeling like they are away from their own self and sees himself as though another person or identity but can still feel the body’s sensation, emotions or behaviours. Depersonalization is also a symptom of anxiety disorders accompanied by sleep deprivation, migraine, epilepsy, and stress but this can only be symptoms. Depersonalization disorder or DPD is diagnosed when these symptoms recur often and are consistently affecting the person, thus, altering the daily routine or activity.
When you are already in this condition, how are you able to overcome and treat it to become your old self again?
Most of the testimonies of individuals who have suffered depersonalization disorder crisis have said that you cannot find the cure for it, yet you have to face it and respond to the attack positively to keep it off. You have the full capacity in yourself to get rid of your depersonalization disorder by means of making a reverse response to the pull of the symptoms and counter it with positivity until it subsides to diminish.
Do not fight it because the more you think of overcoming that disorder, the more anxious you will become and that will feed the depersonalization feeling even more. It is already there, and the more you give in and let yourself be its slave it will encompass you, therefore, start eliminating the things that stress you as that can trigger the attack of depersonalization. Create a diversion on how you think and feel in order to change your focus into something more productive, like doing the things you used to doC and leave no room for the negative vibes to seep through you.
There are many ways that you can think of as a way to make a diversion for yourself and you can either play a game, watch funny movies, cook, do some stitching or coloring – just anything to keep your mind occupied with other things than the feel of depersonalization. Most of all, stop worrying and find the courage to divert your thoughts on positive things because negativity will only pull you back down.
Always remember, no pain no gain, therefore, since this way to freedom from depersonalization is not a one-stop process, you have to be patient and continue the belief of being able to get over the disorder.
All the same, it will as well help in some way to have a personal therapist assist you as it will give you the confidence and guidance that you may need to achieve your goal aside from the comfort that you can have someone to share what you feel and are going through.
