    This is probably going to be long and very rambling, but please bear with me. Some of this is copied from a post on reddit by what feels like the only other person out there experiencing what I'm experiencing. They stopped posting a while ago though, which feels foreboding. Starting about two...

    Hello, I am writing these lines because I am "clearer" again today and I know from my times with very strong derealisation symptoms how often I researched on the internet and the partly very negative reports of experiences influenced me in an unhealthy way. I am also writing these lines because...

    Hi everyone! I'm a senior film student at a university local to New York City, and I'm creating a short film about both my experiences and others' experiences with DP/DR. Since there's a huge lack of DP/DR representation in the media, my goal is to create a mini-documentary that accurately...

    I don’t know what I am looking for by posting. I wouldn’t dare self-diagnose myself, and I am not prepared to seek out a diagnosis from an expert. I know the implications of having this sort of diagnosis listed on my PMH. I am a medical professional working in a field that encounters a wide...

    Hi! I'm Heleena, and I've decided to join this support group to get some help for when I have bad dissociative "episodes." Some basic information about me ? I am 16, and have been diagnosed with OCD, Major Depressive Disorder, and possible Cyclothymic Disorder? I have been treated for my...

    Hi everyone, a few days ago I wrote my story here on my account , I am still recovering, but there is a thought that haunts me constantly ...Can DPDR come back after a few years of being recovered? Is there a way to don't make it come back? I'm afraid it may come back even stronger.

    Hi everyone, I am a 16 year old student and I live in Italy. Unfortunately I too, like many of you, got DPDR from weed. But now I'll tell you my story better. I have always been a sociable girl, full of friends, and with a very quiet life (never had problems with family or anything like...

    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...

    Hi All Ive had what I have been calling derealization for 18 months now. Its not simple and came with other health issues for me, which is making recovery complicated because I keep questioning if is derealization. I dont experience existential thoughts. I havent ever just laid around dazed...

    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...
  12. Recovery Stories
    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...

    Hi. Sorry if this is too much of an information dump but I'm trying to figure out my brain and could use some help from others who understand. I'm 18 and have been struggling with mental illness since my childhood... Panic attacks, severe social and generalized anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc. I...

    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...

    Ive had dp/dr for about 9 years now. Ive been getting help for it but alot of these people have never dealt with someone like me. Its like a guessing game for them and ive been trying a lot of different things for years and a lot of medication for years. Im actually off meds now because that did...

    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...
