Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I've experienced several forms of zoning - whether they are MD-related or not, I do not know. Sometimes if I concentrate on an object it appears to be far away and yet really close or really big and really small at the same time. Other times I zone and the world around me feels like it's not real - like I'm somewhere else, but viewing it from this perspective. Today I was staring at the computer screen and the words changed, like when I cross my eyes to see a 3D image, like the words were popping off the screen, even though they were 2D.
How long does your effect last? and what snaps you back to "reality"?
Derealisation is what it's called.
Sometimes I'll just stare in the distance, zoned out. But, i don't lose lucidity. Sometimes i get amazed that i am real or alive.
