The Holy Grail of Curing DP/DR
Posted 12 April 2010 - 09:54 PM
Throw a bucket of icecold water over your head and clean your room.
i found out that happiness helps it go away for short periods of time, if im stressed, or overall bin a bad mood, it gets worse... i end up freaking out because it gets so bad, and it gets even more worse. (isn't that a dandy?) so, if you can find a way to be happy. the HAPPIEST thing, whether it be video games, sports, dancing, kissing some girl or just being around certian people (without smoking weed/drinking, it'll just make it worse.)
man, you cracked me up. going to bed in the best mood i've had all day.

These are personally the biggest factors that decide a good day from a bad one DP wise. Good luck to everyone on their journey through recovery.

I'm gonna have to agree with everyone else. Tommygunz pointed this out to me, and the day I skimmed through it, I already started feeling hope. Very good information. You say that most of this info was from another user and dpmanual.com. How would you compare "Depersonalization: A Recovered Sufferer's Comprehensive Guide On How To Cope With And Alleviate It" (dpmanual.com book) to another depersonalization book such as "Feeling Unreal: Depersonalization Disorder and the Loss of the Self". I ask this to everyone who has read either book, because I ordered the second book I listed, and now I'm thinking about getting the first one. But if books on DP pretty much offer the same information (excluding exceptions), then I won't feel bad about my decision. On the other hand if most of you have read the first one, and claim it is better than any other book then I will probably shell out the $40 to get it. Thanks.
Hey there Patrick,
I honestly have never even heard of the book you have ordered yourself so I cannot vouch for its content, but as for the dpmanual.com book, it is simply a must buy! It is so well written that not only is it easy to read (DP can make reading a chore), but its personal tone makes you feel as though the guy is actually talking to you as you read it. Very comforting and very reassuring indeed. Even though the self-help side of the book is pretty much the same info as you can get elsewhere, I would still 100% recommend it just for how personal it is, and the experience it can pass onto you in coping with the daily grind.
Best of luck to you Mister Patrick :] May it bring you some peace of mind in the days ahead!

if you look around the forum, someone posted a link to download it for free. i can't remember who or where it is though. either that or you could pay for it. it's worth it.
The member who posted the link to the download of the DP Manual was JumpJump,but i just can't find the link to it now.

Great post , it pretty much reaffirms everything I learnt over the years I had DP
I would also recommend paul david's book 'at last a life' (anxietynomore.co.uk)
The only thing I am not sure about is the buddhist exercises - I think they might cause you to focus on yourself too much? I personally avoided anything of the spiritual ilk and I recovered fine. But then of course everyone is different and it seems to be helping some people - I guess they will make you relax more, I would just say be careful they don't increase introspection!
