Have you ever had moments in time where you lose your certainty about things? You, them, the world around you, the way things work and fit together all of a sudden aren’t clicking anymore and you just don’t feel sure about things? Totally lost? Or do I have dementia or something?
Yes often. Its something im addressing in therapy.
Dont know if you relate to this but this seems to describe how i experience this.
I’m glad I don’t have that, although I’d like to know how it feels. I had a dream where I was disembodied, with cars driving right through me, but I still felt the experience was mine.
Im still trying to figure out what all fits into it, so far ive noticed i obsess over why something is called what it is (like why is a chair called a chair and not a table?), i notice frequently how disconnected the world feels think about how im.noticing/visual perception (like dissociation), i usually have multiple layers of thoughts going at once and will flip between these thoughts uncontrollably so i circle in thinking and never finish a thought, and sometimes i feel i have to super focus on what im doing, like breaking down all the small steps that normally are done without thought, sometimes i suddenly feel like i cant connect with who i am and the past feels like it didnt happen. During psychosis i tend to get cotards syndrome and nihilistic delusions in general.
