I have a hard time even understanding what mild and moderate is, if you actually have it it ruins every aspect of your life even if it's extreme or "moderate", that my experience with it anyways so i'd defenantly take the 6 months since it's the shortest!

I don't think anyone who has experienced the most severe DP could ever choose it over anything else, mild or moderate. 6 months would be several lifetimes in that state. I'm currently unable to work or keep track of time, forgetting where I am and how to do simple tasks, can't follow conversations, have no enjoyment, gratification or pleasure of any kind, can't feel my own memories or emotionally remember anyone.
With mild/moderate DP you can still think about and experience other things. With DP at its most severe there is, seemingly, nothing but the DP.

Having had a moderate form of DP for a while - it's a bit like not having DP, but there's just a constant or frequent 'off' feeling, even if it's only minor. But it's possible to ignore it and get on with things, unlike with the most severe DP.

If you could guarantee me an ABSOLUTE DEFINITE END to this hell I would absolutely put up with chronic severe DP for a good number of years...
This is the whole problem with DP....There seems to be no end to it....Nothing gives proper long term relief...
I mean even the meds I take that give me a lot of relief from the Chronic form basically only improve my life to a 5 out of 10 level instead of the zero out of ten it is whilst going through chronic/severe DP...
Chronic / Severe DP = No functionality!!! ......At any level (Have been there many times especially in the early days / This is basically a mental hell of immense indescribable suffering)
Mild / Mid DP = Functioning!!! ......But at a lower than average human level (This is where I am most of the time ONLY because of my meds)
Zero DP = Living!!!! .....Getting on with lifes ups and downs like any average human being (I have sadly completely forgotten what it is like to have this zest for life)

I think severe dp for 6 months but at the same time mild dp for 2 years. I think mine is mild because I see many people can't go out of their house which that makes me think they have it severe. I enjoy going out with dp i hate being in my house. But even before that lol I am an out doors person. Since I have mild dp....i don't want to meet the SEVERE Dp Soo.mild for 2 years is ok for me
