Thanks.

The white matter disruptions found in depersonalization is more likely related to how the brain is used. . They reflects the kind networks disrupted, the overregulation of emotions. So, there are some impact on gray and white matter. You do not find atrophy or any other indication of abnormal changes in cells like in schizophrenia or neurological disorders. You are in reality trying to make the condition more serious and irreversible with thinking that should be such basis.

Sandervanc, your theory that stress plays a role in DP makes sense because to some extent you know it. However, when it comes to these theories about myelin sheaths and "bruising," where are you getting these ideas?

"The Holy Grail of Curing DP/DR" (https://www.dpselfhe...of-curing-dpdr/)
The role of the Myelin sheaths has been mentioned here.


Thinning of the myelin sheaths is a better way to describe it, instead of bruising.

Chronic stress makes the myelin sheaths thinner. I think people are stuck in DPDR because there bodies aren't able to heal properly anymore. Aren't able to heal the myelin sheaths, because the sheaths are so thin. But you can still walk around and act like a normal human being because nothing is broken, it's impaired. But you don't feel like a normal being, you feel excluded from reality.

if you had nerve impairments, what does it changes...you cant repair it deep in your brain...only through healty physically and psychology life-style a process of rebuild or restore...so it doesnt helps to do more research... i know its hard, i do it like you, but thinking about it is a dead end street

but what else to do, when the hole fills with water...to look how you are dying (and in our case dying inside)...deep breathing and relaxing makes the dying not better

I see. I've heard some theories like this about depression and psychological stress. A clinician who was reading articles like this one mentioned to me a link between depression and inflammation. It would be nice to have a job in research to try and help further the science, because we have a long way to go. I've heard that the mechanism by which antidepressants work isn't well understood, and their effectiveness is limited, which partly explains why so many depressed people suffer in spite of being medicated.

True. I remember suffering through many of the antipsychotics, probably because they were prescribed to me and I wasn't psychotic. They can help some people with depression, but for me they were just another thing to cope with.
