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. A person that seems to have the feeling of depersonalization associated with a migraine, anxiety, epilepsy, and the likes may still be having just the symptoms and cannot be considered as having the disorder as yet. The said symptoms of depersonalization, when it has already becoming frequent and is affecting the normal daily life cycle or routing of the person, can already be diagnosed as a disorder.
How can you treat and recover from depersonalization disorder and what do you need to further understand about this condition?
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. It means to say that you have yourself to mainly fight your way out of the disorder by reversing its effect on you to weaken its control and power over you.
The more you fight depersonalization, the harder will it go away from you because it feeds on the negativity in your mind, therefore live with it and think of positive actions to weaken the attack. Learn to adapt to it and instead find ways to eliminate the stressors that cause negative changes in the brain that triggers the attack of depersonalization. Divert your thinking into something else and find a way to bring back the interest in the thing you love to do before and start reliving them again.
Think of ways to better express yourself and if socializing is still hard, do something that will change your current state of mind, like drawing, coloring, exercising or anything to keep you busy and occupied until you slowly feel revived. 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.
Self discipline and having someone to talk to like a therapist where you will be comfortable expressing yourself with and not fear of being who you are can also help you out of the depersonalization disorder in a slow but sure way.
