In Topic: Real vs not real

Emotions do exist. As for wondering about the nature of reality, I think it's kind of intriguing. I didn't know how the universe and life on Earth came to be before I got depersonalization and I don't know after. It's a mystery of life.

or even the anti-depressants or anti-psychotics makes it even worser...especially in numb but sensitive minds

True. I remember suffering through many of the antipsychotics, probably because they were prescribed to me and I wasn't psychotic. They can help some people with depression, but for me they were just another thing to cope with.

I see. I've heard some theories like this about depression and psychological stress. A clinician who was reading articles like this one mentioned to me a link between depression and inflammation. It would be nice to have a job in research to try and help further the science, because we have a long way to go. I've heard that the mechanism by which antidepressants work isn't well understood, and their effectiveness is limited, which partly explains why so many depressed people suffer in spite of being medicated.

I still describe DP as feeling high all the time.

Sandervanc, your theory that stress plays a role in DP makes sense because to some extent you know it. However, when it comes to these theories about myelin sheaths and "bruising," where are you getting these ideas?
