Yes, i've read the recovery stories back to front, it does happen to the 100% but not for all, that's just how it goes. I believe everyone who keeps trying will see a big improvement.
I was emailing a friend on this forum the other day about a story that actually gave me some perspective. The guy in question had DP for 20 years and recovered, usually i'd never read that, thinking it's the worst story you can read, but it's not. It shows it's never too late. In his case he lived with it 19.9 years, tried a few meds in the early days and gave in and just let it be, after 19 years he went back to the doctor and found a med that worked, recovered in a few weeks / went a hell of a long way in his recovery.
I think the problem with this condition is living with it and being in recovery is totally different.
Sometimes you are stuck in just dealing with it and a lot of people make you believe that time fixes everything, time sure can fix DP sometimes for sure but if you aren't making headway, explore your avenues I say, but that's just me, i am pro meds with this disorder as I know how they changed my DP and i've read so many cases like this, where they found the right thing and got back to living quickly. Sure things like acceptance and stuff is all good teaching but it's a bit like depression when someone says "change your mindset" as if's a fault in a thinking pattern..i had major depression according to my doctors years ago that lasted 4 years, accepting did not do anything, meds fixed it and rather quickly.

I had dr/dp 9 years ago after a panic attack. I had symptoms like hyperawareness of myself en terrified that I could see and think and other strange thoughts. I was a stranger to myself and the world was strange. After a while it didn't scare me that much and I totally forgot it. 9 years I was happy. In that time I once asked myself: am I scared to see? And I laughed, what a strange thought....9 years later and I have dr/dp again and the same thoughts and again I'm terrified of them. At least I know now that I can overcome this terrible state..so hold on.
P.s. sorry for my English
