I was at a lake and I had told my mom and dad I wasn't feeling well and that I felt like I wasn't in my body and that I felt really off. They said I was fine and it slowly got worse until I had a really bad panic attack and had to go to the teens pyche ward for about ten days cause I completely numbed out and having panic attacks. I was stressed about after life thoughts and felt like I was dead. I thought I was gonna be dpd the rest of my life which made my anxiety worse. Then I got out and stayed in my room for a few months until I became accepted with dp.

I was at a friend's. We were watching a film while smoking weed and at some point, I started questioning everything. Like ''why do we have bones, organs ? '' etc. I even remember thinking about Plato's Cave ( http://en.wikipedia....ory_of_the_Cave ). Then I had a huge panick attack and got back home in a hurry.

Driving on the highway with my boyfriend when he stopped at a gas station. My only words were "I don't feel like myself." Scariest feeling of my entire life.

Plato's Cave makes me think about DP aswell for some reason, even though I believe it means something completely different according to my philosophy professor.

It's interesting how the demographic of this site has changed. It seems that the majority of dp cases now are not drug induced or facilitated. A few years ago, nearly all users had a drug related event that started it all.

I felt like I wasn't fully awake and I kept trying to close my eyes and open them to maybe give me some sort of jolt. That jolt never happened so I began to dwell deeper into DP after a severe panic attack where I thought I was having shroom flashbacks.

My first dp episode started after a weird dream,I woke up with panic attack and suddenly my room wasn't my room anymore,everything was so unfamiliar and scary.It lasted 4-5 motnhs. This year my second episode started after I came home from a trip in the mountains,everything looked scary,whole life experience looked scary to me but I went to bed,I thought I was just tired and everything will be back to normal in the morning.And I woke up with panic again but this time I freaked out about the fact that I am alive and I exist.Freaky,freaky..

It was maybe 2000. I almost drowned. Came home feeling fine. Fell asleep and had a panic attack. Woke up, boom DP and visual snow. I hated the visual snow more. I eventually recovered.


Back in 2004, I almost drowned again, but this time I had the panic attack underwater. Finally, made it out the pool, but I was totally DP'd and hyper vigilant... and I'm still currently DP'd and hyper vigilant lol.
