I think I’m dead, in the afterlife

Postby LucyTate » Wed Feb 24, 2021 2:31 am

I haven’t felt this way before. Tw for mentions of physical illness and, well, death and unreality

I have DID and at first I thought that’s what it was, the symptoms. It’s just, everyone around me keeps appearing as “fake” or “real” or “like me (in the sense of also being dead)”. It’s likely dissociation but it keeps coming back and bothering us. Memories worse than usual, honestly everything’s just been wrong and off for weeks. People act different, surroundings are different, things don’t work the way they usually do and it’s weird. I think I might be dead, or more preferably unconscious so I can get back to my life. I don’t know. Am I in the inner world? Was I always? Any answers would be nice. I will be telling a psychiatrist and therapist tomorrow at group therapy, I just wanted opinions from not them, too. Thanks!

osako has a point- the Dead cannot die, so no point in fearing you are dead- if you were, then you'd already have died. That's the hard part, right? Then after that, fear of Hell- well, if this isn't Heaven, at least it's not the Biblical depiction of Hell, quite.

This sounds very dissociative to me- either it's expressing itself... maybe more strong than it has? Or in a different way? Or... since y'all are DID- are you even the 'you' you think you are? Maybe a part is co-fronting that hasn't? We've... been having a lot of problems with feeling 'muddled' lately not sure who is who. And we're not even DID. How much more, when you have full blown DID, yeah?

Let us know how the therapy went.

Tell someone you love them today, for Life is short. But scream it at them in Klingon, for Life is also terrifying and confusing.

We do not delete posts.
Let it go.
Without (forum) rules, we all might as well be up in a tree flinging our crap at each other.
