    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...

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...

    Im 16 years old and I got dp/dr 7 weeks ago, since then the symptons have increasingly gotten worse, I think its somewhat related to anxiety/stress/obssesive thoughts, it started after a panic attack. Part of me thinks the primary problem isnt the anxiety though because I went a while without...

    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...

    Hi guys! I'm new to DP/DR, I've only had it for about a month but the amount of comfort I find in reading all of your stories and posts has helped me know I'm not alone. However, I'm really worried for my upcoming move to the UK - currently I live in Malaysia with my parents and I've gotten...
  14. Introduce Yourself
    I guess I'm writing here because I feel alone and I don't understand why this had to happen to me. As I'm writing this I feel completely detached from my body and myself, as if this was two dimensional. I'm 19 years old and my disorder has become prevalent ever since I started university a...

    Hello everyone, I don't see many posts in the section of managing DPD. It seems that huge number of people who are on this website have been dealing with this disorder for many years. What did you do to cope? How did you make it so far? and sorry for being rude but what abstained you from...

    Okay i have been coping with DP/DR for almost 2 years now and personally i feel like a functional robot or to some extent a psychopath. Psychopathic tendencies have sky rocketed for me : 1. I get bored very very easily. 2. Only way to cope I found is to work on something that is a bit...

    Im suffering from insomnia and it worsens and exacerbates my dpdr x1000. Does anyone else on here have the same issue? Is there any medications or strategies that help? It would mean a lot just seeing some responses. .

    To begin, I will give a brief explanation describing my DpDr and as to why I felt I needed to write about this particular subject. If you would like to skip ahead to the struggle with my parents, read under the ___________ My DPDR started when I was 17 years old. I've suffered from severe...
  20. Managing DPD
    Hey everyone, what ive seemed to have gathered recently (even though its so hard for it to sink in, is that DP/DR/Anxiety are all thought based disorders. Thats what i think anyways, they all stem from some sort of thought or way of thinking. Which some of you may already know. Well, i came...
