> Do you ever find the lighting seems way off and makes you lose your bearings?

I do when I depersonalize, and sometimes I will just be sitting in the living room and it will feel as if the lights dim for a second. Kinda like the light is far away or as if it is only a 25 watt bulb (when it's actually a 100 watt). Is that what you mean? I'm pretty sure that has something to do with anxiety disorders in general.

>Can I ask if you have any other diagnoses?

Yes, I have quite a few others actually, I'd like to make a note that I do not agree with all the diagnosis', and I'll point out the ones I don't agree with.

Panic Disorder
Geralized Anxiety Disorder
Severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (worst one)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder w/Borderline Traits
Bipolar III
Dysthmia
Schizotypal Personality Disorder *This one I do not agree with and neither does my therapist. My pdoc is the only one who seems to agree with that dx, but that's cause he's the one that assigned it to me.

So, thats me... It sounds like a lot, but the GAD and PD are practically one in the same, and dysthmia is just depression. The Bipolar III only acts up when I take certain antidepressants, other than that I'm fine in that area.

Do you mind if I ask you what you've been dx'ed with?
