I was diagnosed about 6 months ago now and began medication 5 monthd ago. I have had very small episodes before but around october had a breakdown which caused some severe dp/dr to start that i was in and out of emergency for. I could tell if i was awake or dreaming and nothing felt real. Since medication its gotten better but it still is there constantly

Hi Lexi._.guz. I was wondering what they had exactly diagnosed you with if you don’t mind me asking. I have been dealing with dp for almost 8 months now I have bounced between doctors and therapists. I was wondering how the medication is helping you. And what is the medication specifically for (as in is it for another condition such as depression and anxiety that may be causing the dp). And I was wondering if you think it would be worthwhile to try and pursue trying to get a medication for dp. As I do struggle with anxiety already. It may be worthwhile trying. It’s just been hard to find someone willing to deal with what I have and give me solid answers.

I have a wall up from the world.  A wall in my brain that I can't tear down.  Sometimes it's thinner, and sometimes impenetrable.  The thinner it gets, the more emotions I feel.  It's almost like armor.

This is exactly how I feel with having DPDR.

Like a robot.... I somehow get through everyday but go to bed every night wishing not to wake up. I have had this for 6 years now straight with the odd break here and there. Before that I had it twice and it went within two weeks.... Now I have lost hope of it ever going. I hope we all get better days,

I feel like my feelings don't connect.
Everything I sense just feels confusing to me.
I try to talk but it doesn't make sense.
I hate being around people when I'm dissociating because I feel like I have to hide how I feel otherwise they would think I'm stupid or talk to me about it and sometimes that triggers me.

Suddenly I feel like I switched in this reality from another dimension.
Like I had another body, another life, but now I'm in this reality and I don't know how to function like a human being.
Everything around me seems like a movie I'm watching.
When I look into the mirror, I can see a body that doesn't appear to express the thoughts/emotions I carry inside.

I've had DP/DR for almost two years now.
I felt like I was going crazy.

I hope I will be able to be normal again
