What part?? The "you all are perfect and not going crazy" part?? If so, it's true!! You may not believe it, I know I didn't, but it is 100% true <3

Oh my god. I toked to much weed on the 30th of may and I had the EXACT same symptoms of you. I had anxiety for days thinking what if it was laced,synthetic et etc. Although I did it with a friend and he was fine. I didn't think about DP/DR for a straight 2 days and probably thought about it once, and in that time I felt no symptoms. It has been exactly 2 months now and I don't have it chroniclly. What can I do?

What you can do, is pretty much distract yourself and live life as if nothing ever happened :) live life happy!! Don't think about dp at all :) I don't happen to have a twitter, sorry :(

Thanks anyway. I somehow convinced my self I'm going schizo then the next day I can be fine. What did you tell the doctor? What did he do/prescribe. I'm 16 and I got it right before my birthday, so I had it on my 16th bday :(. I'm just depressed right now, I feel like shit.

I don't know where your at, but its 5 AM in the UK and I haven't slept in over 48 hours. I'm the 8 months Ive had this I have never felt this bad. It's more anxiety/fear than physical symptoms. Also did you have an issue where your nose was constantly in your vision?

Oh my gosh.. Happy late birthday!! I'm sorry you happen to have it on your birthday. I had dp for my birthday too. Just know that you are NOT going schitzo. You are 100% normal :) dp is just high anxiety and fear!! You got it because you freaked out. As did I. Forgive yourself and forget what happened and live life ^_^ I told the doctors everything. They just say I have anxiety and gave me meds. I was prescribed with Lexapro and it helped me a lot :) and I too was depressed. I just cried every night and stayed in my room. But what helps depression and anxiety, is sleep. So, love, you must sleep. I know you can't sleep, but try something. Drink chamomile or take melatonin. I take melatonin and I sleep like a baby!! XD oh my goodness yes. Seeing my nose gave me more panick attacks. It's weird, but yeah :(

Thanks so much. You probably don't reallise it but your words have helped relax me immensely, mainly due to the fact that out situations where nearly identical. I rarely have anxiety, Its just phases that I might get once a week :(

Also, sadly melatonin isn't available over the counter here in the UK a doctor has to give it to you. Unfortunately I can't go to the doctor so I'm going to have to find alternatives

I'm glad I can help, dear!! That's what I'm here for ^_^
Aww poop.. You can try drinking chamomile tea :) that helped me for some time ^_^ you can also keep yourself busy. Like, excersise or a lot or chores. Although, excersising didn't quite help me. It actually made me more dpd. You can try it once and see how it goes :) and chores didn't help me either. I thought a lot of negative things :(

I don't have obsessive thoughts any more. The thoughts no longer dominate my mind. How long until my perception is back to normal? How long was yours?

Oh good!!! You are being lead to a wonderful path already!!! It'll take time. But you're doing great so far!! Just accept what you see and before you know it, it'll be gone :) for me it lasted...a year and a half o.o but that was because I didn't help myself in the first few months.
