    I've been suffering from dpdr for 3 years now, and most of this time my symptoms were pretty straightforward. Feeling distant from people, world looked weird, cognitive difficulties, emotional numbness etc... Lately though I'm in a confused state that borders delirium. I cannot explain what it...

    So far I’m taking Magnesium and Taurine. Both are natural and have positive effects. Do you recommend a particular one for anxiety and derealization? Thanks

    Hello, Has anybody had severe cognitive impairments, as a result of this. I mean to the point where simple memory is obliterated, can't do the most basic calculations and so on. I feel literally stupid. To put it in context, before my issues in 2015, my old professor advised me to think about...

    Hello everyone! I found something amazing in one old book. Basically description of person with derealization cured by taking some ADRENAL GLANDS meds. (adrenals are responsible for example for cortisol we often blame here). Link to book...

    Hi there guys :) Due to DR and accompanying brain fog, it's very difficult to engage my brain and concentrate well enough to write and explain myself easily at the moment, but I will do my best! I've had derealization/brain fog for almost 6 years now. This all began when I was diagnosed with...

    Hello everyone, When I first got this disorder, I did not even know that I have what is called depersonalisation. I did not know what the term is. All what happened is that I got brain fog after three weeks of weed panic attack. All my search on the internet for three weeks was "Brain Fog" and...

    Hello guys, I have been going to the gym quite often recently but I am noticing that after a tough exercise that my brain becomes so heavy especially when the blood moves quickly to the brain. This increases my derealisation and depersonlisation. Can anyone relate? Do you think that we need...

    Hello guys, For those who are studying or working, I was wondering if they have any tips when it comes to medications that will help relax when it comes to public speaking. I have a talk that is scheduled soon and really terrified! I used to take propanol before which helped immensely before...

    A lot of people here have been suggesting taking supplements for the brain fog: B Complext, Magniusum, fish oil, etc but these supplements give me horrible brain fog every time I take them. They intensify my brain fog and make it much worse! So, I stopped taking them. Anyone have similar...

    I used diazepam again for 14 days/5 mg a day and it cleared the brain fog and the head pressure completely. I saw the light for a week! It was amazing. However, once stopped, the problems came back more severely! Valium is known to be depressive too. So, I felt very down for a week. Is not there...
  14. Introduce Yourself
    Hello Everyone, I can't tell you how long I've had depersonalization because I don't remember when I experienced my last moment of clarity. I know it was cause for concern on my part in 2012 when I was preparing to present in front of 400 students in a popular music history course. It may...

    So to my previous post I talked about my mom having a feeling of DP but she said she is feeling better. I'm not sure if she even had DP to be honest but she told me that she had an out-of-body experience so she understands my dissociation which is still hard for anyone to understand. I have been...

    My name's Jordan. My battle with DP started about two years ago after a series of panic attacks. I had been dealing with a lot of stuff. My brother's death, my shitty job, and the fact that I couldn't to go to art school with my friends all kind of just culminated in this storm of emotions I...

    I have noticed that my numbness has reached a new low. I fear to say that I don't really get a reaction anymore when it comes to unfortunate events. I don't think I have the ability to fully understand this. I also see everything as a blank piece of paper, but I lack a working pen. I'm kind of...

    Hello everyone, I'll try to cut to the chase. Im almost 22, began smoking weed almost every day at the age of 20 for a little over a year, did LSD 3 times and shrooms once during that time span. Never saw weird shit, nothing that would cause me to think i was crazy during the time. The day...

    Okay, so this is going to sound really weird but here goes: I've had dp for little over a year now. At first it started with one or two panic attacks and then evolved into brain fog and some memory loss. For the first 4 months I had no real problems. Yeah, the fog was annoying but it didn't...
