Curing the root cause of my derealization.
Posted 04 March 2012 - 12:33 PM
I'm making a concerted effort to stop giving my dp & dr so much power over my life, but it's hard when I'm haunted by memories of teachers and employers yelling at me for not being able to learn properly. I'm starting a new job soon and I'm worried I haven't learned enough about myself to make sure things don't end up the same way as in previous jobs.

just wondering 1) do you take medication? 2) if you do, has it been re-evaluated recently?
I was diagnosed with add last year, and my psych prescribed me 30 day trial of Strattera. I actually think that Strattera made my symptoms worse. Strattera made it made it easier for me to fixate on my dp and dr symptoms. Mind you, that this was all last year. I was only diagnosed with derealization a few weeks ago, so this wasn't something that was treated along with the add. I made an appointment with a psychologist who specializes in dissociative disorders. I'm not to optimistic about it to be honest, but I'm hoping he can help. I currently don't take any medications other than magnesium, fish oil, and St John's Wort pills. I don't notice any differences in my mood or overall mental health. I now realize that this is a problem that pills won't be able to cure. I have serious self confidence, learning, and other mental problems that make living a normal life nearly impossible for me. When I find the answer to these problems, I'll be able to live a more normal life.

how to rule that out. Give therapy a chance, if you go into it thinking it won't work it may take longer to work
