First of all, congrats on being recovered!!
What an amazing post. There hasn't been a post like this for a long time, so thank you for using your precious time.
I'v been dp'd for about 2 years now and I'v had better and worse times. In retrospect i think the best times were when I started dating again, forcing myself to be with friends (So NOT isolating).
Right now I'm in a very rough patch again, but reading this just reinforces the believe that socializing and just LIVING is the way to recover or atleast make things MUCH better.
I also believe that dpdr is a combination of severe anxiety and OCD. Sometimes I can feel better but because of recurring obsessive thoughts I can slip back into a depressive state within seconds. So staying inside that positieve mindset flow is so important.
Again, thank you for making this post! I'm gonna try my best to start seeing friends again and making socializing a top priority.
