A lot of people write 'hey, get off this site to get better.'
This advice is written by people who've all been here and now recovered.
In the good old days (before internet) there wasn't anything like this site. And if you feel 'on your own' now, imagine if you didn't even know there were others who had this thing.
This site is a very valuable place. I get that some people need to get off it and get on with their lives. If being on this site is preventing you from getting 'out there', then obviously that's not a good thing. But the site can also be a great support. Before the internet, you would have been really on your own. You can get on with your life and still come to this site, that's for sure.
Seeing many different stories here, I'm beginning to see people are different, have different symptoms, have different needs and are at different places in their recovery. I'm beginning to think that the 'everybody listen to my advice,' is actually one of the (final) stages of dpdr, it is so very common. (oh, yes, I've been through the stage!)
It is as if you have become an angel, and out of the goodness of your heart, you descend back to hell and see the poor devils crying for help. You declare 'I will save you, brother, sister! Let's get you out of this place! Follow me!'
But could it be (I know you won't agree), but could it be it's not really the others you are trying to save.
It is yourself.
