This video is from 2018 and may have been posted already. Deeza shared it with the chat.

"Depersonalization, a dissociative symptom often looked over by the mental health community and profession, will be experienced by 50% of the population once in their lifetime, while only 2% of the population will suffer from depersonalization disorder chronically. Laura brings light to this mental disorder by sharing her 11 year battle with depersonalization disorder. Laura Weinstein is a student journalist, as well as a vegan, LGBTQ+, and feminist activist from Coral Springs, Florida. She is the opinion editor of North Broward’s online newspaper Brainwash, where she publishes everything from movie reviews to controversial articles on questioning the foundation of personal ethics. Laura is an officer for the Gay Straight Alliance of NBPS, and runs social media for the club as well. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx"

Have seen it before, not so positive in my eyes as she still suffers from it.

“Only 2% of the population will suffer from depersonalization disorder chronically.”

Two percent is a hell of a lot of people to be referred to as “only”, and I highly doubt the number who experience it is that high. After all if it were, it would most certainly get much much more attention than idly currently does.

Yep, 2% is a huge number. Two people out of every hundred chronically DP'd? Yeah, no way. Like you said, there would be high awareness of it.
