Hello all. My name is Michael. I'm 42 and have had dp/dr for about 15 years now. I think it's trauma related. I just recently had a major resurfacing of ptsd stuff during a bipolar relapse and my dp/dr went into overdrive. I'm now in survival mode. I'm wanting to do some emdr for my trauma. I suspect if I can have a successful ptsd treatment, the dpdr will resolve. I got Harris Harrington's program and have been practicing his grounding techniques. I haven't really had the focus for all the writing assignments though. I think his material is great, I just am not in the best space for doing the homework at the moment. Maybe once things die down a bit. I feel like I'm on benadryl all the time now. I super don't like it. I'm on lithium 1200mg/day, and 7.5mg of zyprexa for sleep, as my sleep is terrible. Had a nightmare last night featuring a king cobra larger than a python upright looking at me in a large field i had to cut. Interpreted it as traumatic memories I'm trying to ignore because they seem too scary to face. Yikes! That was scary just to write down.
