    i don't really know when it started but i'm under the impression it started when i was quite young. i hold onto small memories of me as a child—waking up to the smell of the crisp morning air, the sun is just rising and the sky is tinted with orange, pinks and purples. or riding down the hill in...

    Good evening everyone, I hope you can help me feel less alone, and to understand if what I am feeling is also felt by any of you. I will try to explain myself as well as possible, because I am Italian. I started suffering from DP about two months ago, after a year of high stress, on the...

    Hello all. My Experience I developed dp/dr when I was 18 years old, having been anorexic and bipolar. I went through a long stage of mania where I lost reality. What really triggered my dp/dr was my experience using LSD. While tripping, existential thoughts raced through my mind as my reality...

    Hi! I'm new here and already feeling so grateful knowing I'm not alone in this journey. So, I'm relatively new being in a relationship with my boyfriend. When we first started dating he was all fine, but then only on the second month or so that his depersonalization started to affect him. He...

    Hello, My DPDR started like 6 years ago, I had a lot of panic attacks/anxiety. I was also very obsessed with getting better. And it made it more difficult to recover at that time. I've not been paying so much attention to it anymore like I used to do. Also I do not have any panic attacks...

    Hello! This is Khulan from Mongolia. I'm 20 years old. I started getting short episodes or moments of depersonalization [for about 5 seconds every time] since I was in elementary school. I would get confused and ask other people if they felt what I felt, too. Since I was a child, people didn't...

    I recently came across Hyperleap, which gives access to a lot of neurological information. It speaks to the majority of issues of concern to me. Either this information wasn't known 10 years ago, or it wasn't available on the web. My descriptions of the experience of migraine aura never led...

    So I used to have (self diagnosed) depersonalization. A bit of context of my experience so you guys know where my ideas are at rn, I used to see my body as just flesh I can control (who would've had it's own conscious if I hadn't taken over) and that I was a parasite moving the host body like a...

    Long story short I started having dpdr again after being free from it for 5 years. There are two things that bother me most, the excessive thoughts that nothing is real and having a bad sense of time. But I started a new medication almost 3 weeks ago and last week I felt really quite good...

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6764488/ The EEG or electroencephalogram, can help establish the origin of dissociative symptoms, (unless I read this abstract wrongly.)

    After having suffered with DP/DR for a couple years off and on and some bouts with it when I was little, what I noticed was my eyes. I know you can relate! Whatever you are suffering with that brought you to this forum, you know exactly what I am referring to here. I remember getting DP'd some...

    Okay so last week I took about an hour and a half writing this post explaining in full detail my situations but then I got a server error and it deleted the whole thing and for some reason I couldn't retrieve where it was auto saving LOL. So I thought I'd just summarize instead of giving the...

    Hey guys, I want to remind you all that DPDR is absolutely, completely curable. It'll involve rejecting your scary thoughts in ways you've never been brave enough to do before, but it is completely worth it. I'm a girl in my 20s... this condition once dominated my entire life, but I've been...

    Good evening to everyone! I wish good luck to everyone. We have to believe one day will be normal again. We are all fighters. This is my 5 months story until now. After an intense period of psychological stress due to a break up and dismissal from work i felt something in my head like headaches...

    Hello! I just joined the community, but have read a lot of topics and discussions in the past years. I have DP/DR for 4 years now and it has been a real struggle, but there have been also a lot of good days. At the moment I have high blood pressure and I feel really bad, of course DP/DR is...

    Hey guys I'm new here to dpselfhelp, I guess i'll just lay it out all on the table so i seem more transparent. First. My father became ill of cancer in January of 2018, after a long and hard fought battle he passed away in August of 2019. I was unbelievably close to my dad as he was my best...

    Hi. My name is Sandra. I have had chronic DPDR for almost 8 yrs now. I suffered in silence up until April of last year. I didn't know what this was.. I didn't know what I was experiencing. I thought I was going crazy and therefore didn't seek help sooner. Keeping this to myself has been...

    Hey all, I am 27 year old and have struggled with DPDR (especially derealization) for over two years now. In this period of time I have suffered a LOT, but I have also learned a lot and am slowly getting out of the hole that is DPDR. Hopefully forever. In this time I used these forums a lot to...
