Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've visited this wonderful forum.
long story short I was diagnosed with dpdr and cptsd about 2 years ago, and since then with no improvement the mere mention of dpdr makes me dissociate, as I'm writing this now, I start to feel detached, I can't really research allot about this topic, and in general it's hard to talk about it to anyone because of the dissociation, and also, well you know, most people don't understand.
so my question is this, does anyone else also have this phenomenon? how do you cope? does it get better?
oh and just for the heck of it, I've started with Venlafaxine about a year ago, and I think it helped me with the emotional numbness, but I'm also in therapy and away from my abusers so who knows.. (my psychiatrist won't let me reduce my medication unfortunately)
