Re: Dealing with Depersonalisation

It's great that you've been trying to do some mindfulness stuff @roseisnotaplant! Those types of things help me a lot, I hope they're helpful to you. Smiley Happy If it's working with the depersonalisation I can have a look around for some more mindfulness exercises if you like? 

 

I'm glad to hear you've been doing okay. Did you feel like talking about the 'not great' part, or nah? Either is fine Smiley Happy

Re: Dealing with Depersonalisation

The not great part is just feeling super spaced out all the time, it's just frustrating. It was pretty bad yesterday, and it's like, 'Oh well, I guess I'm on auto pilot for the rest of the day' :/ The mindfulness works a little, trying some more would be cool. @DruidChild

Re: Dealing with Depersonalisation

So glad to hear that mindfulness is useful @roseisnotaplant! I know that there's a free online mindfulness course offered through a site called Future Learn which you might find helpful Smiley Happy

Re: Dealing with Depersonalisation

That sounds frustrating @roseisnotaplant :/

 

I found a few things that could be helpful! First there's Smiling Mind, you probably know that one! https://smilingmind.com.au They have a bunch of guided mindfulness things and meditations. 

 

There's a bunch of mindfulness worksheets on this website - http://www.stillmind.com.au/mindfulnessworksheets.htm - they could be helpful?http://www.stillmind.com.au/mindfulnessworksheets.htm

 

I don't know if you experience other types of anxiety, other than depersonalisation, but this awesome YouTuber called Lucy (who suffers from anxiety) talks a bit about strategies to use in this video - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4O53tADdnEs

Re: Dealing with Depersonalisation

Awesome, I'll check all those out, thanks @DruidChild!!!!

I do experience anxiety - it used to be pretty bad but it's been a lot better recently. (And I totally know Kaelyn and Lucy, but I haven't seen that video, I'll watch it now, thanks Smiley Very Happy)
