It seems to me that a lot of people here have DP purely by chance, or a change in circumstance. I have it instead because without it I would be constantly in pain from traumatic experiences as a child (bullying, social isolation etc.). I'm not saying I enjoy having DP, but I've come to see it in a new light these past few days as when I had a slight break from it the other day felt an immense pain. I'll not describe it for you because I don't want to whine or whatever, but that's what I felt, and within an hour or so of that pain I just snapped straight back into depersonalistion _ I could feel my mind start to go cloudy and the pain just melted away into nothingness. So for me, at least, I have a whole load of other issues I need to sort out before I actually get around to 'curing' my DP.
Anyone else here experiencing DP as a result of trauma, or because of some mental illness?
