Derealization is a symptom, not a cause or disease. So it isn’t going to cause brain damage.

It is most likely the getting more stupid is where you are at with you DP/DR. DP/DR is often ‘stupefying’ –one of its many frustrations.

After extended periods of dr/dp do any of you find yourself more stupid, or increasing your intelligence/knowledge at a decreased rate from before you had it?

This is unlikely (though others will need to speak their experience).

There can be neurological causes of DR, so it is best to see doctors (even if they can be frustrating)

I am one of the few here with a bona fide, diagnosed, brain injury. There are ‘cognitive’ difficulties – very selective and seem strange (though not to doctors trained in this sort of thing). Slowly, over time, these are rewiring/repairing. Am not ‘stupid’ [let the reader use discernment :D ]

Your concern is understandable but there is a large probability that you will end up just fine.

Have you seen doctors?

You mention having DR but not DP, what are your main symptoms right not? (other than memory and concepts)

Well, I find it harder, basically, to think--especialy with things like self-reflection. And, not only does there seem to be short-term memory loss, but trying to remember things in general is more difficult.

One of the reasons that I find it likely for this to happen is that marijuanaapparently, if taken enough, causes a decrease in intelligence, and the experiences of derealization has been compared what is experienced when someone takes marijuana.

Hey - some cool links....I definately think I suffer from dr only not thanks for those links.

Why wont you post again, have you recovered? How did you do it if you have...?

Good, glad I could help.
And, no, I haven't. And I have only some derealization, not depersonlization, and hardly any of the other symptoms other people here seem to have, nor is mine nearly as bad a what others seem to be experiencing. I just made this account so i could post some of this stuff here, because after spending a little bit surfing the forums i realized that I may have some information that could help you guys, but, even though I may visit here once in a while when I'm bored, I don't really want to go on here regularly. I think I can manage without it. I can understand why this would help others who don't really have that much guidance in their lives for this type of thing, but my family is really understanding and helpful, so I'm not really in need of other sources of help, nor is my condition very severe. Really, the only problem is an inability to have the same interest and enthusiasm in my life as I did before, some discomfort, etc., and that's about it.
