Including mental and physical, what sort of illnesses do you suffer besides dp/dr? Have they worsened since onset, appeared alongside, gotten better, etc.

 

I have suffered from depression horribly before, along with tmj (jaw locking issue) before due to stress, and my anxiety has GREATLY worsened, and though my depression, is in a way, better, the suicidal thoughts are so much worse. I have noticed ADHD and OCD symptoms a lot, and they've become less manageable since me having them prior. My doctor diagnosed me with bipolar type two, but he wouldn't hear me out that it is simply just DP.

I have advanced heart disease. (Atherosclerosis).  In 2001, I underwent CABGX5 (coronary artery bypass grafts times 5).  I had the procedure done at the Stroobants Heart Center.  I briefly researched the procedure and asked if it could be done "beating heart" ie. off the bypass machine.  Dr Frantz said "I always wanted to try 5 on a beating heart!" LOL

Stroobants is a great story. I think he was a Belgian immigrant who started a successful machinery operation. He built the heart center when he learned he needed CABG and was told he would have to go to Duke for it. He didn't feel like traveling. Stroobants also enjoyed success in animal genetics.  Just a cool guy. Actually, I have suffered very little from heart disease.

The only discomfort I felt was angina and shortness of breath upon exertion. A month following the operation and I was back to playing full court basketball. It's been 15 years since and no problems.

Nothing. I think I might be in a small minority.

I have severe depression. For people with mental disorders it is not unusual to have other mental disorders, too.

Depression is a whole new order of suffering.  I once went 52 days without real sleep.  Every 3 or 4 days I would "enjoy" 3 hours of unconsciousness, but I wouldn't call it sleep.  I would be tossed back into consciousness rudely, as if my sleep had been a puddle that had evaporated.  Insomnia is a torture that increases the likelihood of suicide by a factor of 5.  Anxiety increases that by another factor of 5.  How can you be sleepless without anxiety?  Depression with insomnia and anxiety is a near death sentance.  I don't know how I survived.  Not sure I could do it again.

For me sleeping itself wasn't that much a problem. Sleeping regulary was a big problem. Before Mirtazapine I often went to bed at 6:00 and and got up at 16:00. Often this interval shifted forward each day, so on the next day I slept at 7:00 to 17:00, than at 8:00 to 18:00 and so on. That's bad, but inability to sleep is worse of course. I know that, because when I took Aripiprazole I wasn't able to sleep, although I would be tired. When I withdrew from Clozapine I wasn't able to sleep for 10 days.
