derealization

  1. Discussion
    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Okay. When I had my first bad dissociative episode I deconstructed the concept of language in my mind and stopped understanding sentences and words and letters. It all seemed meaningless. The concept of tiny symbols representing sounds so we can communicate seems absurd. Every word I said...

    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...

    Hello, I have been having derealization for 20 years now, and some depersonalization mostly in the first 10 years and it tended to fade away. What is puzzling me is that the vast majority of people say that their symptoms are correlated with anxiety or terrible panic attacks, and it doesn't...

    Ever since I developed DR (not so much DP) few weeks ago after a bad marijuana trip, I feel the following cognitive symptoms: As if there's some delay in my brain processing information. It feels like I am seeing something but it's not really processed by my brain unless I really focus on it...
  20. Treatment Options
    Specifically a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. Which means the cannabis I consume has an equal amount of THC and CBD. I take a very small amount every 4-6 hour's, and it makes me feel so fucking normal. It doesn't make me high, and no other formulation works as well. Brands that have worked for me...
