#590328 Depersonalization as an enlightenment

Posted by fel49 on 16 September 2018 - 06:45 AM

Hello all,


As a DP Suffer I have a specific question. Do you consider DP as a enlightenment or a sa positive thing? 
Indeed  illness or symptoms shows something is working with us and give us a signal that we need to do some change ?

So maybe I need to do bigg change in our life ? Change work ?  It is because I have no find my purpose or I do not live on the present or analyse too much myself ? Like DP is to show to face fear and reality or signal I am on the wrong  way ?

Or it is just to stop analyze too much and live fully my own life and DO THINGS I LOVE ? Its look like signals when I was policeman I lost my personality my "ego" (so depersonalization) and this job was not for me so symptoms come..

But why I have still have tit ? Did I have no found my own love. Maybe love and accept myself with positive outlook and do things I love ?


Its look like it is a crisis conscious. I have found a interesting comment on your tube:


"DP results from a premature (immature) awakening to an experience of self that "we" aren't prepared for, whether by trauma, drugs, alcohol, stress etc. It's easy to dismiss talk of enlightenment as airy fairy bullshit when "we" are sunk into the depths of despair at the meaningless of life in the throes of DP. Each are like noon and midnight, occupying the same position on the clock, though signifying opposite times of the day. One light, the other dark; during one period we are awake and the other we are asleep. DP isn't cured, but rather endured and seen through. It is the "Dark Night of the Soul" as described by John of the Cross, hundreds of years ago, in his book of the same name. The more we struggle against the quicksand, the more it sucks us down: what is resisted will persist. It's difficult to accept this as a necessary part of our growth, but here it is, nonetheless, even though we were not ready for it. You will come through with greater humility and wisdom, no small things. Your ability to appreciate life itself will be amplified. There is light at the end of the tunnel. The sun always rises."
Thanks all and sorry for my bad English

I think that while the symptoms may be the same for many of us, the cause usually isn't and therefore DP treatment isn't a one size fits all approach. I have had success over the last few years with medications. Some people have had sucess with other means. It really seems to be a process of elimination to find what works for you and what doesn't.


You right we all different and one thing can work for someone do not mean it can work for me.

And you finally overcome ? What kind of medication did you take



#377987 can we believe on a serous recovering

 Hello all


I am French and as i can see DP/DR is not really know In France medicine. I would like some support because it make me sad and feel condemned to have it all the rest of my life. What do you suggest ? Start a new therapy. Some hope ? The cure do not exist ? Any advices ? Can we believe on a recovery ? I do not live on Paris. It hard to find a good specialist. There is no books in French regarding this condition :( It make me sad to see all programs are on English. What kind of therapy that could be the best with good results ? I take a anxiolytic and will see a psychiatrist in September.


What do you think?

#368293 this permanent blurred vision

Posted by fel49 on 31 March 2016 - 03:21 PM

Even if it is physical, there's nothing they can do if the problem is not detectable. You can get a second opinion, to see if another doc has a different opinion/detects anything.

If no cure for the vision arises, I suggest counting your stars when it comes to neurological functioning...things could be a lot worse.

That's not to say having blurry vision for eight years is not difficult! You could see a therapist to go further with the DP lead, or perhaps see a neurologist.

Nothing in life is permanent, by the way. I wish you the best. I hope you discussed with with your primary care physician.


Yes i will talk to my own doctor (for neurologist)  and will see a other specialist on eye surgery just for having his answer too.

When i was younger and no DP i remembered my vision  with my glasses was also no really perfect. I was 6/10 on left eye and 10/10 on right eye 

It is maybe just the feeling of being like on a dream caused by DP and blurred vision interpreted by my brain and create it.


Lets see if there is physical problems with specialists.
