Dpdr is something you have to work through and is a product of stress from what ive gathered. Even if its just low grade stress that the person doesnt think affected them too much, sometimes for some sufferers, it seems to just come out of the blue one day and thats because at some point, the brain just went "nope, cant deal, im going into hiding" the meds may have not helped cause the dpdr could be caused by depression which is a different stress which again needs to be worked through.
Yeah, I've also experienced these 2 types of depression. Now, I'm in complete emotional numbness that I don't give a damn about anything, but the pdocs tell me my dp/dr is from anxiety?? I was prescribed anti anxiety meds which hardly ever touched my dp. I'm so confused
Dont worry too much about the total numbness, ive been there, multiple times even but its just temporary. Basically just an emotional vacation. Try to live your life as best you can while in this state. I remember a day while at the peak of that where i was hanging with friends, completely lost, hazy and feeling no connection or emotion toward them or anything and even tho that day didnt seem like improvement at the end of the day, it helped in the long run and the more i did it, the more things started coming back.
