Thank you support you. I am on year 17. You had it for 7 years, how long are you recovered? You took an SSRI for support but do you believe we Chronic DPers make the journey longer by obssesing over it. Why do you think you had it for years when others recover in a relatively short period of time. In essence what do you blieve is the best rute to recovery-meds, therapy. Many people say stop looking for a soluion and accpt it and it will fade once yo don't give it atention. Do you believe this? Your mail indicates that you continued to search/research for your solution throughout your 7 years. I have mainly accepted that this is with me for life and I have learn to function with it but feel my life is completely compromised. But I imagine if it ever did go that I would be so overjoyed and take life by storm.

Your home environment sounds alot like mine was when I was growing up. My mother however was my saviour! Very gentle peaceful woman, but never really understood what I was going through.

PS I got a flash back when you mentioned Mother Hen, I remember her from the orginal DP forum. I always use the handler Dyna. I remember her being very kind and generous with her support. She got DP after the birth of her baby if I remeber correctly, who is probably a teenager now!!

Thanks for the very inspiring post. Best wishes to you and yours. Dyna

Do what you need to do. Remember, you are still You, as you were born. Just hang in there. The mind does messed up things to us sometimes. It's a defense mechanism. :)

I miss her dearly. She helped me out so many times when I was down. She didn't give up on me even though my need for reassurance was relentless! Ha! :)

Dyna what is your most debilitating symptoms and how do you go about your day? I tried several SSRIs and my home didn't make me feel any closer to better. The house was were it was triggered. Very stressful. I was always set on recovering. It was sudden, after a nap from college and wham! The vacuume cleaner in my room suddenly was so friggin' foreign and abstract looking. And I was questioning it. I knew right away this crap isn't normal. I was petrified.

I remember my "dreams" were just fog with some orangey clouds. So abstract and depersonalized in my initial dreams. Language also felt weird to speak and see/speak/hear words themselves. Lol

My most debilitating symptom is feeling like I am in a dream state and not with it.
