I still have alot of DP symptoms but the medicine takes the overwhelming power out of the symptoms and as a result i can function....I have never been totally DP free since i deveoped it but as a result of meds I can function....And from where i was that is huge for me....When i had DP in its chronic form I was literally left totally incapacitated squirming in my bed in absolute hell....Low dose anti psychotic took me out of that state and handed me a big chunk of my life back...

 

I wouldnt wish were I was on my worst enemy...I came so close to taking my own life several times..In fact at the time if euthanasia had been legal in this country I would have taken that option in an instant....Not today though...Today im normally a 6 out of 10 and that is fine by me....

Can you tell me what anti psychotic they gave you? I just started Wellbutrin a week ago but I don't think that's the route I need to go. I told the doctor and neurologist how I feel and I don't think they really understand it.

 

I have DP 24/7 now, it all started after smoking some laced weed (pupils were dilated like crazy, freaked me out) and then the DP started the next day and lasted 7 days. I woke up on the 8th morning and it was completely gone, I was me again and so relieved. It stayed gone for 6 months and came back off and on last August after some stressful events, now it's back 24-7 since January.

Yes, I have had it since January 26, 1973, 24/7. I obviously had to learn how to adjust to it.

21 years. Not 24/7 thankfully. This is life though. Some of us just have it worse than others.

I know this reply is 3 years late but i just found out about this term at all. Ive had this for as long as i can remember, not in episodes but 24/7. It would get worse with social anxiety, anxiety in general, etc and it wouldnt be as bad at all when im having a break down but it would still be there. I dont remember a time i didnt have this, for years i thought i was the only one and that i was weird. I dont know what life is without this disorder. I have yet to be diagnosed but im almost positive ive found my answers.

Hi I’m new here and as I’m reading the posts I’m so happy to see that what I’m experiencing isn’t just happening to me. I’m not alone. Unlike some, I have no idea what triggered it for me but I’ve had it for about 4 years now 24/7. In the beginning I cried every day because all I wanted was for this to stop but I had to grow to adjust. Therapy helped but I am no longer going. I did have an edible and freaked out from it but not sure if that triggered because symptoms didn’t start until a day or few after I came down from it. I also have had some very triggering life situations come my way. I don’t know what caused it but I can feel it getting worse these past weeks. I think talking will help so here I am.

Same here, non stop dpdr.
Taking meds, the condition got better with meds, time and rest.

My personal issue is that I am trying to figure out when my dpdr started but cannot.
I have been to the depts of it and back.
Some parts of my life were so painful that I barely remember. I felt like a zombie few last years before "crash". Eventually it got unbearable.
After years of meds and therapy, I am doing pretty good and gradually getting better but not fully recovered yet.
