Depersonalization can give you many symptoms, and a lot of people mistake them for schizophrenia or other psychotic illnesses.

That's what this search is. That's why you work so hard at it. That's why you're here.
I'm not speaking in analogies. I mean exactly that...less the camouflage garb, the 100 round mag glock and night vision, a rescue mission all the same.

You Will Heal, over a long period of time. And you will relapse.

Yea, I know-this feeling we have is “horrible." That’s not what I’m talking about.
