In Topic: Been Dp/Dr for 3 months

Welcome! I got DP in 2017 after a bad weed experience. It took me over 2 years to fully recover. Keep the faith.

I can imagine that this pandemic is doing no favors to people suffering with DP. I am lucky I recovered and graduated college before the pandemic hit. 


Keep the faith.

Psychiatrists aren't going to do s**t. They operate in science and medicine. DP is a problem within the mind, not the brain, and chemicals and science won't help. Do not waste your money.

DP is truly the most terrifying experience I've ever had, and IMO there is really no medication for it. I think benzos could be the best way to alleviate the symptoms, however this comes with a BIG disclaimer that I've never actually taken a benzo and am just going off of research about what benzos do and my assumption that DP is anxiety driven. Benzos can also have issues with withdrawal which would likely aggravate DP. So please do not go running to benzos willy nilly. Do your research and consult your doctors. In my opinion, the philosophical conundrum known as the "mind-body problem" is the root of all DP. Some people "get" it and some just don't. I envy those that don't. 


The mind-body problem is something that caused me great stress and anxiety when I had DP and I had no solution. My DP was drug (marijuana) induced when I was 21, and over time my mind eventually was able to restore itself to its pre-weed state. I should note that it took a month for me to get over DP the first time, and then I got drunk and stupidly smoked weed again and it took over 2 years to get rid of DP the second time. Time was the only thing that helped me, and I think that was because I had had 21 DP free years before. I knew what "normal" was like and my mind eventually found its way back to it.
