    As usual, this post is probably going to be very long. I wasn't too sure how I should title it, but I settled on what I did because it's essentially the overarching issue of what i'm dealing with. I feel nothing towards the idea of recovery. This is not coming from a source of depression or any...

    My disorder never ceases to amaze me with how rapidly it changes and progresses. I was doing really good for most of last week until Sunday. Saturday night I upped my dosage of Zoloft from 25mg to 50mg and man do I regret it. Combined with bad sleep, stress and anxiety about school, and I think...

    Upon discovering the tremendous therapeutic benefits journaling gives me, I realized a healthy way to use this forum would be to do just that, and be surrounded by a community in the process. First I want to start off by describing this weird and scary sensation I've been getting; hoping...

    Lmao, I knew I couldn't do it. I told myself I wouldn't post on here again, but to be fair I almost made it two weeks! yay... My disorder has made yet another increase in severity, and things are pretty fucking crazy now, I want to document what I've been experiencing since these past few days...

    INTRODUCTION I am a 16 year old male who developed DP/DR seven weeks ago. One of the few things I still like to do in this state is write, so this is me doing that. After living through the last 50 days- each one being a new form of hell, after scavenging the internet for every piece of text...

    This disorder is confusing the hell out of me. It seems so much more anomalous than others. Every story I read they describe the onset of being more or less abrupt. And after it happens it stays the same. Or, they developed it at a young age and over many many years it gradually worsens. But...

    Ive made a few other posts relating to this as well, and here I am again lol I got dp/dr almost seven weeks ago, I believe it was caused by a huge panic attack in the midst of a depressive episode, im 16. since then it has gradually worsened. It is definitely related to anxiety to some extent...

    This is a really stupid question. But I'm so desperate for hope. Im a 16 yr old male who developed constant dp/dr six weeks ago. It was very manageable at first but overtime it just kept getting worse. I would describe the progression of my dp/dr as a downhill slope with very tiny uphill...

    Before i explain my story. It is important to note that Ive actually experienced dp/dr (mainly dr) episodes since I was 7. But they lasted for only minutes to hours at a time, and grew increasingly more infrequent over time to where I could go several months without experiencing them. That is...

    During some time in August, I was triggered to fall into a dissociative episode, and around the beginning of September I fell even deeper into it. I think it's probably the worst dissociation I've ever experienced. During regular conversations I will easily zone out within 30 seconds and I have...

    Hi, new here but long time DP & DR suffer 5+ years, onset from weed. My DP sorted its self out, when I cured my anxiety, I have very little emotion numbing, like I feel normal emotionally, in my own body and real but the Derealisation visual symptoms just never got better! I also have visual...
  12. Introduce Yourself
    Hello! I have read many posts on this forum over the years but have now just decided to create an account and make a post of my own, mostly because I feel extremely alone and am not sure what is going on with me anymore. Anyway, I have had DP/DR three times prior to now, once when I was 12...
  13. Recovery Stories
    So I have a bit of stuff to say on this it's really long sorry! It's worth a read though I promise. I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety and panic disorder sophomore year of high school (I'm 20 now) because I started getting extremely severe DP which lead to some more severe DR. After about...

    Hey guys! So this is my first time posting, and I want to help others as well as help myself. So let me give a back story! So, 4 years ago in February 2014, a senior in highschool, I had my first real panic attack in the shower (from trauma of rape and bullying). I was freaking out completely...
  15. Recovery Stories
    When I conquered DP I had this little thought in the back of my mind just how useful I could be for others who went through the same thing. The truth is often reading about it in the past would trigger feelings and symptoms for me and I would avoid it altogether. In fact, I can't say for certain...
  16. The Daily Forum
    So I've basically had some anxiety problems for a while now, getting worse in the past two years. I've had issues w stuff like dp before, but here i am again, freaked out. I'll explain (i know this sounds dumb but the mind can play tricks on you when you have anxiety). So I have been reading...

    When I close my eyes, I feel like everything in front of me does not exist, like it's not really there, it's just a void. I know it is there but in my minds eye it's not. Hmm, rather strange, anyone else have this? is it dp or dr? Thanks

    Hey, So 2 things that I've been feeling recently and was wondering if I'm the only one, cause I'm pretty much convincing myself that I'm going mad 1)Sleep I am 16 and have suffered with dp for about 2 years now but recently its been a lot more frequent. Every night I will look at my clock and...

    Hey guys, Today I celebrate my birthday, and I feel a bit more "in-sync" than usual. I guess people focusing about me on my own special day makes me feel more "real and connected" than usual. Recently I shared my story with the forum (which you can read by looking at my profile I guess) and I...
  20. Recovery Stories
    Hello. I am a male teenager and have a story to share with you. My experience started about 7-8 months ago. I smoked a little too much weed and got paranoid and traumatized. A few days later I started feeling wierd and so I researched my symptoms. It was DP/DR. I was so hopeless and terrified...
