This is my third episode. I was fine for 3.5 years. Now I have relapsed (due to stress) and have depression, anxiety. I doubt I will make it out of this one. I'm questioning everything.

Grateful to have browsed this site today. I’ve been dealing with DP/DR for a number of years now and always felt odd how little mention there is of alcohol as a trigger. Weed was my initial trigger but since abstaining from marijuana the only trigger I have is alcohol and I’ve gone through enough trial and error in my drinking experiences that I’ve found a tipping point in the number of drinks that send me into a DP spiral. For me, if I were to have anything over 5 Budweiser type beers I will get thrown into an 8 day intense DP experience. The oddity is that if I stay below that magic number I don’t seem to get any intensity of symptoms. There’s clearly a brain mechanism at play here that we must have similar machinery for. Although many people on this site share similar symptoms, I think there are all sorts of different clusters of ways in which they get to that point. In terms of developing a better understanding of this I think it’s critical that the most similar of cases collaborate in ways to drill down on what might be going on biologically. My hope would be to gather a sampling of people with alcohol as a major trigger and see if there’s a way for us to contribute to a research community that has the background to study this type of thing and maybe uncover clues on just what the he’ll is going on
