I have had dp for about 10 years. It is relatively stable now but still interferes with my life a lot. I currently manage with exercise, medications and mindfulness. I recently went back to talk therapy which did not help much as it was all about my past and trying to find trauma that I don't consider myself to have had. Anyone tried these other things like EMDR or brainspotting or acupuncture? I'm open to new things and potential tools.


Thanks for reading,

I don't know what brainspotting is. But I've done EMDR and acupuncture. Didn't help, but also didn't hurt.

Some people have said they've gotten some relief from teanscranial magnetic stimulation. Just another thing to consider if you aren't aware of it already.

I just started acupuncture. I heard it helps with insomnia, perhaps it will help with dpdr. I will let you know. Last week was my first session, so lets see in 3 weeks or so. 🙂

Honestly at this point, I don't think there is a cure. I just really accepted it as a fact of life - I feel like once you call DP real life, that is real life now? Who can prove otherwise? Maybe we've always had DP, like DP is a state in which you are over analyzing what it is to feel real anyway.
