Feel better then worse??

11 February 2021 - 01:47 PM

I’m sitting here at the moment feeling very disconnected and unreal and I’m so annoyed because just last week I was feeling pretty good and I would have said I felt very close to recovery. But now I’m feeling worse again.

Does anyone know why this happens? How can we feel so good for a week then plummet back down?

Is this a normal part of recovery? I’ve recovered before, but I don’t remember it being like this.

Why would *this* happen??

Long story short I started having dpdr again after being free from it for 5 years.

There are two things that bother me most, the excessive thoughts that nothing is real and having a bad sense of time.

But I started a new medication almost 3 weeks ago and last week I felt really quite good. Time was still sort of distorted, but I wasn’t having the thoughts of unreality. Even when I brought the thought up on my own it had no affect on me and didn’t make things feel unreal.

I was feeling like that for an entire week and now over the last few days those thoughts and the anxiety that goes along with them has returned.

Even the feeling of time distortion has gotten better.

Why would this happen? How can I feel almost 100% better one week and then the next feel like I’m going crazy again?

I know I recovered once before, but I have no idea how I did it.

5 years free of DPDR and it’s back again...

As the title says, after 5 years of being DPDR free it has come back. I’m really annoyed and upset that I’m in this mental state again.

I can live with most of the awful feeling for the most part, but what is keeping me feeling like I’m going nuts or that I’ll never be better is the following:

- the feeling that my days don’t link together and that every morning I wake up I feel as though I’ve just become conscious for the first time. It takes a while to feel like I’m actually a real person after waking up.

- not quite feeling like myself like maybe I’be lost myself somewhere

Does anyone else have these feelings? The first one is most bothersome and I’ve never really seen many ppl describe that as a symptom so it’s the one that worries me the most.

I’m sure these symptoms may seem mild to some of you, but they frighten me.
