Anxiety has always thought to be the cause of dp, cause they usually exist together. I dont believe this. I believe that dp and anxiety are two seperate symptoms of the same problem...low serotonin. Serotonin levels are essential for our memory, perception, and a feeling of well being(plus lots more). Most people in this state are hindered in all these areas.

Mostly the Paxil Im taking, but I belive the vigorous excercise and milk intake (tryptophan) ive had recently are boosting its effects.

I did feel, a little over a year ago, a period of. . . I guess transcendence, a higher point of view. It lasted not for a moment but for more than a month. I thought I was experienceing the world and myself as more real than I had in decades.
Then it stopped, and then I could barely imagine what it had been, and then thought I had just imagined it.
But I had also stopped what I had been doing for a month or so before this awakening. It was Wellbutrin, quitting smoking, vigorous exercize, and watching my diet. The wellbutrin alone didn't do it.
Back to the Y for me. Break out my fitness software. I'm serious.
Great news Joe. Don't slack off. I'll meet you in the real world in about a month.

I was exactly your age when this shit first started to happen. I look back now and I understand why felt the way I did. My conditions then were very mild but I let them go for over 10 years and eventually I ended up in this nightmare. I used to self medicate with caffeine and alcohol but all it did was make it worse. I feel very bad now that I didnt figure this out sooner. I could have spared myself and my family alot of suffering. Life goes on.

without sounding selfish i wish i was you right now.
i hope you continue to make progress and that everything fitts into place for you, but dont run away, keep us updated as to how your going and what is helping you, it might be the info that we all need to get over this (what i believe to be the worst mental health condition).
cheers and keep smiling.
