I have been a member of this forum for roughly a year, ive struggled with DP/DR since my middle school years (currently 19 Yrs old). I am cured of DP/DR all because I stopped listening to the members of this forum.

The people on here are some of the most negative, down in the dumps people ive come across on any forum. Half of you claim you are Professional Doctors who know pratically everything about DP/DR. Most of you like to think that there is no cure to DP/DR, according to some of you guys nothing works, medicine doesnt work, supplements dont work, nothing works.

Well I will tell you, IF you want to get better you should start off by not buying into everything that is said on this forum. I got better because I went to a professional pyschatrist who actually knew what she was doing unlike some of you. She prescribed me medicine by the name of Zyprexa, she said if I took it for 6-8 months I will be cured, she also said taking medicine is just one of the few things you have to do in-order to get better. Guess what? she was right, I am almost completely off the medicine and I feel fine. During the last 8 months I didnt rely on just medicine to get me better, I fixed up most of the problems in my life, most importantly I stopped visiting these forums.

I learned to just live my life instead of thinking about all the negative that comes with DP/DR. If you are thinking about it non stop everyday you will never get better. Coming to these forums everyday will not help you in any way shape or form, it will make you think about DP/DR more and more. You people worry about every single little thing, if you feel weird for one momement you will blame it on DP, just look at the 1 page of this forum, people are complaining about disappering, sadness in the chest for no reason, bright spot in vision and many more. Im sorry to say but you people dont suffer from DP/Dr, you people are hypocondriacs. Seriously, if you all learned how to relax for a momement, things might get better.

There are some points that are true but some are clearly not. Not everyone experiences DP/DR on the same level and other stuff as you did. Some people dont even have any severe symptoms such as panic attacks or depression or whatever. Dont be too smart about it and stop judging people. Also the saddnes in chest that comes is really intense yea that is me and you have no idea how it feels like and how it affects you because you probably never experienced it or experienced it at the level as some people do.It feels like all of your family died and you want to cry but cant and even if you want to stop it yourself it doesnt stop so easily. I'm glad for you that Zyprexa helps you as it does to my friend she is taking it for almost 1 2 years now and she still isnt cured but she can live. Zyprexa is only masking your anxiety thats the reason you feel better and maybe DP/DR is better and i hope you dealt with the things you should. If you know why you developed this then good for you and if you know the reason why and how it happened. Just please dont judge people as having other symptoms besides DP/DR is really unpleasant.

You could be also so good to tell us some techniques you used to cure your DP DR?


Also some experience some symptoms on the fly (feeling fear/adrenaline for no reason,or DP DR gets more intense) without any trigger or even knowing the trigger and also like me i get reactions from food that come 15min or more after ingesting the food.

Also my DP/DR is 80% gone and i also exercised and accepted it but what bothers me now is Anxiety (Feeling fear/adrenaline for no reason or trigger thru day in waves) and depression (feeling saddnes for no reason thru day in waves).

Anyway some of your points are really great but not all of them. And yea to be away from these forums is really a good idea and just do the things you like and accept what you have. But sometimes it isnt so easy as there are other symptoms on the way but it can be done!!!

Just please dont judge people because you probably never or even never will experience the same level of DP/DR anxiety and depression as others did.

Anyway get cured and also others get cured!!!

yeah i know what you are saying

but mental illness is somewhat like a nightmare

when you are dreaming things seem so real and intense

but as soon as you wake up, your just like, oh just a dream, and carry on with life.

i think in the pits of mental illness it is difficult to see out, but once you get yourself out you realize how easy it really is to cure yourself.

personally i have found stuff like yoga and meditation to be really great just to do on a daily basis it keeps you healthy and increases your vitality, ... plus the more you practice meditation and the deeper you go the more amazing it becomes

i think it is best to set a goal, aim for something and dont let it out of your sight. look at the obstacles as challenges to overcome. pretend you are a warrior going into battle fighting for your life and others. nothing will stop you from winning!

i think part of what the OP is saying is if you focus all of your attention on the negative symptoms you are only going to make it worse. you should focus your attention on achieving your goal and overcoming the challenges, it is very much possible and also much more beneficial.

but yeah, i found stuff like yoga and meditation really great to practice everyday, not only for the 'immediate' health benefits and such, but also as a goal of achieving, to be able to control what i think, to be able to meditate properly, and then to be able to enter these extreme altered states (through meditation), to be able to perform the headstand asana etc.

Dude according to my doctors my DP/DR was extremely mild, I wouldnt be speaking the way I did if I didnt have it bad. I know what it feels like to have it at the most extreme cases.

I agree with you to a certain extent that it's easy to get self absorbed whith this illness or what I would name it. But having a supportive community like this is basically a good thing in my eyes, and then it's up to people how they want to make us of it.
And there are many reasons for people developing dp, I seriously doubt mine could be cured by meds for exemple.
Also I found that there are a lot of intelligent and reflective people around here who contribute to discussions about being human, mental health in general, environmental factors, personal development etc.

Thanks, I guess you cant handle the truth about this forum? I dont know what you find so arrogant about my post, I was only stating the truth, did I hurt your feelings or something?

You make some valid points but state them in a way as if you are a know it all 14yo then seem to try to pick a fight.
You clearly have some other issues going on lashing out at people.
Since you are feeling better maybe its time to go find a forum for those other issues.

He has a lot of valid points. This forum is filled with a lot of negativity. I don't think he's being arrogant - I think he's being realistic. In a sense we are hypochondriacs obsessing over our disorder, there's no doubt about that.

yeah right bro

i had this for 6 years before i knew what DP was, i thought i had brain damage and moved on, i just lived life the best i could (i still do).

then i found out about depersonalization, went to a psychiatrist, got diagnosed with dp disorder, took medication etc - no help. I've been living life pretty well for another 5 years after being diagnosed, no meds, no whining, but if i'm honest with myself my brain is ruined and i get nothing much out of life.

what now?

i'll tell you what, keep living life the best i can, salvage what i can - and not let little piss ants like you make me feel guilty for not recovering
