I do not know what caused it, whether it was head trauma, or psychological/physical abuse as a child. Either way, I had chronic dp 24/7/365 for my entire memory of 22 years.

It's now been about 2 weeks or so dp free. :) I can't believe how good it feels. I just want to say that If I can recover, anybody can! Always have hope, for there's always hope to be had.

I believe that I have recovered for a few reasons.

1. Temporary relief from meds which allowed me to focus and sort the problems in my life.
2. Realizing powerful mental blocks placed upon myself from trauma and figuring out how to lift them.


I want to thank everybody for their support and friendship and advice and just everything that everyone has done to help and encourage me along the way. I don't think I'd have done it without this site and the support I've found here. I'll stick around. 8)

hey, i'm 22 years young as well. I can remember having spouts of dp when i was little, thought nothing of it as they went away within days or weeks, until i took a whole blunt by myself. Since than its been chronic, and i blame my own stupid mistake, wasn't the pot, it was a dormant disease set off by the pot, but i'm interested that we're the same age and have it, how do you react around your friends and family, for me, no one understands. I had my best friend watch numb and still, nothing. The only person who understands is my therapist, and i feel like sometimes he doesnt even understand. Get back to me if you can!

Can you tell us more about what type of meds you used? And more about lifting the mental blocks? I am especially curious because I too have had 24/7 dpd for as long as I can remember(25 years). I just found this forum and will get around to introducing myself, but in the meantime, I just had to reply to this.

As for medication, I was on Anafranil for a few months. At first I was also taking Xanax, but that was substituted with Vistaril after a couple of months. Anafranil continued with Vistaril as well as Lamictal and Invega.

Note that I had also been diagnosed with bipolar otherwise unspecified, and ptsd.
