Re: Alice in Wonderland Syndrome

Derealization/ depersonalization are two conditions that can cause these kinds of effects.

In the past i have attempted to focus on this perception to see how far the rabbit hole goes....its not good.
Funny. I had these symptoms form and take hold in a single month of July of one year. I perfectly remember and know how things are supposed to look. Not seeing them as I know them takes joy, immediacy, a true sense of connection and responsibility out of life. It's like being drunk except that I never sleep it off and wake up sober. So ten years might pass by but whether something happened yesterday or ten years ago, it feels equidistant in time. And living outside of time, I let it slip by me by decades unless emergency strikes.

Re: Alice in Wonderland Syndrome

TheChemicals,

Have you ever had breaks in your symptoms?
The first time I connected my audio-visual sensory distortion to ADHD, was when somebody, who claimed to have ADHD, said that he had these visual disturbances since his birth. He said that he only learned that his perception was faulty and real life looks quite different when a doctor put him on an alternative ADHD medication and he had a visual breakthrough.

Re: Alice in Wonderland Syndrome

I used to get this when I was in my mid twenties. I believe it was from lack of novelty and staying indoors for too long. Sh*t drove me nuts. The walls would start moving and you could actually hear fragments of your thoughts. Once I was out of that zero growth job of 8 years things changed.
