okay spaced out pals. here's the thing. everyone's telling us to just ignore it and that is SO ANNOYING TO HEAR because it's like
if you had a chronic pain in your arm and people tell you to ignore it it's like i LITERALLY CAN'T because it's SO OBVIOUS.
but the way to function with this is to pretend it doesn't bother you - over time your thinking patterns will change and though you will still be spaced out, it won't make you as depressed/anxious because it will just be something you have and that's it.
Yes, it sucks to think about that. DON'T GIVE UP HOPE - more research will be done, there are other options you haven't tried yet, you will feel present again one day - but just in case that day doesn't come/it takes a while, you might as well enjoy life as best as you can whilst feeling spaced out!
Last year I could barely talk to people I was that spaced out! I didn't want to leave my flat for fear my existence would be snuffed out it felt so fragile. But now I wake up and although I still am living in this weird dreamlike world, I can function and make an impression on the world, despite barely feeling like I'm in it.
It will be okay! I Promise! Don't give up hope! Practise loving what you can experience!
