    The more I try and get to know people the more I begin to ask myself how I much I actually have in common with people. It feels almost like everyone I knew in my life I really had nothing in common I mean I've met nice people both here and in real life but I wonder how much I ever had in common with anyone kind if like the world's just slipping away.

    It kind of feels odd I'm not sure if anyone will understand or make sense of this.

    I often have similar thoughts and I have to remind myself that there are people that have experienced things similar to me. They share those experiences with me and thus should be able to understand me if they have any empathy at all.

    As for the feeling of the world slipping away. I don't know how it is with you but with me it is often because I'm having an episode of dissociation.

    It just kind of feels like I'm losing my mind the other night I was having a vape then I couldn't move my legs not matter how hard I tried I was staring up at the night sky felt sort of fuzzy everything was fading and I was being dragged out of my body for a brief moment I felt like I could move outside of it. That's kind of what I was meaning about the world slipping away it's not common it happens but it does happen. Sort of like I'm dying I'll just look at my lifeless body idk it's kind of screwed up

    I've felt like that before. It is often a more extreme form of dissociation.

    I understand that feeling. You just got to take it day by day and find something to work towards.
