they just want to end it & put yourself out of this misery. I know Jasonfar told me in another post that i whine & complain too much, but this isn't that. Right now im just feeling totally hopeless, ALMOST to the point where i just wanna say f--- it. I don't know if i could ever bring myself to the point of suic***, but i just feel like now that all of this has happened & ive been exposed to this whole DP/DR, anxiety, drug, hell, that how will i ever feel good about life & about the world again?

i know i sound like im complaining, but im really not trying to.

Soulbrotha, You're not obsessed with the date of your first DP/DR experience are you? I'm crazy over anything dated 10.28.1994, the date of my first big, heretofore unabated panic, DP/DR marathon.

It could be worse -- at least you're not sleeping with newspapers from the date of your first DP/DR episode. :-) I can't get over this damn date, for some reason. It's like my life (or at least reality as I knew it) STOPPED on OCTOBER 28, 1994. Help!

Janine... Everyone ... --- thoughts, suggestions?!

I echo what dakota said. you gotta do this thing sober if you can. meds are simply a last resort. only take them if you simply cannot function. If you can do life without them, then that is the best way. It may be the road less traveled, but its the better option in my opinion. Hang in there SB. There are lots of us here to talk to if need me.

Do you feel like youre attempting to save up enough evidence in the hope that one day you will have time to go over it all and perhaps find the trigger to what caused the DP?

The trigger was taking 3 Vivarin tablets (600mg of Caffeine). I even tried a ridiculous catharsis where I took 3 Vivarin tablets again and again and again, and I couldn't bring on a panic attack (was trying to induce the same-sized panic attack as in 1994). I got some relief from this experiment and the DP/DR went away for a few hours, but came roaring back.

Thanks for your reply.

You'll probably never find an answer as to why this happened to you, and even if it didnt it would never amount to anything more than just some short term relief. We need to keep looking forward for ways which we can make our future a better place to live.

well, sb, my one suggestion is to try and see a counselor/therapist. there's a lot of things that i'm sure you've yet to examine about WHY you keep yourself so stuck on dp/dr so constantly. from your posts i would think that your constant focus on your dp is one of the things that is keeping you from recovering/perpetuating your feelings of helplessness. at the very least, finding a therapist/someone to talk to could help things dramatically. drugs and sitting around ruminating about all this can do only so much.
