I've dealt with this disorder aka the DP/DR demon when i was 15, once again when i was 17, and unfortunately it has reeled it's ugly head again at 32.
Hope to share my struggles and triumphs as well as offer any words of wisdom to those that are struggling with this horrendous disorder.
I currently work in finance, pretty much a 9-5 kind of gig that provides well but doesn't give that sense of purpose in life. I've had a pretty average run in the lovelife department but i carry my heartbreaks on my shoulder alot which gives me a negative/protective outlook towards things. I think my DP was triggered again at 32 because of my unhappiness on multiple levels that i have failed to address.
I believe DP/DR is a defense mechanism of the mind to protect itself against further negative experiences, I really hope i can help contribute to the boards....especially any young folks who are dealing with this, I am walking proof that you can recover and lead a normal life. I am also walking proof that if you fail to act on what makes you unhappy in life you can relapse. Finish & Save
Best of luck to us all
