    Hello my name is Alannah, I'm a 28 year old female born in Adelaide South Australia living in Baltimore Maryland. Recently I was finally able to put a name to what I've been experiencing for as long as I can remember. I believe I've been having Depersonalizations since I was a young child...

    Hey guys, I've (F25) made this account because I finally feel truly normal - there's no longer a risk of me browsing this forum and slipping back into the "simulation" DPDR mode. You CAN achieve this, too. It hasn't been easy. It's involved going about my day, surrounded by others, submitting...

    Hi. I am not diagnosed with DP, but I have anxiety and it is sort of a secondary symptom. It really varies; when I was younger, I would have short, incredibly intense episodes which i called "third person mode". Since being on medication for depression and anxiety, I haven't really been dealing...

    Hello everyone, after 15 months of constant DPDR (which was triggered by smoking weed_ definitely not for the first time), I smoked weed again (after 15 months of sobriety). Here is the whole thing: I took a trip to the north part of my country with my old friend(cousin) and stayed at the...

    Hi everyone, I am new here (obviously). I am 53 years old, a mom, an artist, writer and scholar, and survivor of childhood sexual, psychological and emotional abuse. Two months ago I had a breakdown when my father died: my C-PTSD blew up so badly I could no longer function,. I was flooded with...

    We can all 'space out' now and then. We get to work and realise we haven't noticed a thing we walked past, or find we are on the last biscuit without realising. And when big life changecomes, again, it's a normal response to feel overwhelmed. Anyone who has lost their job, or lost a loved one...

    My name is Brittanie. I'm 18 and I've recently been diagnosed with depression, among other things. Traumatic childhood events have made me the person I am today. However they have also given me unwanted feelings that I cannot always explain.. Often I live more in my dreams more than I do while...

    Hey everyone, long time no see! :mrgreen: A popular Youtuber and musician, Dodie, recently did an interview with the BBC about how she is using 'trans-cranial magnetic simulation' as a method to help her overcome depersonalisation disorder. I am a big fan of Dodie's music and it makes me happy...

    So after reading through a couple of these topics, I'm interested to see if anyone experiences DP like I do. I've noticed that I will dissociate for about a week almost every month (sometimes I can go two months without it). It's almost like a routine, strange enough. A lot of times, I'll...

    This has been a topic of interest for me to post here for a few weeks, so I figured that I'd go ahead and make this post as I'm very interested in hearing what you guys have to say about this. The main reason why I bring up this subject is because dissociative seizures are something that...

    Hey there! My name is Alyssa and I am a 20 year old college junior who has had DPDR for 3 and a half years. My journey with DPDR has been a strange one. I woke up one morning after a party in high school completely dissociated and I have never been quite the same. The first year of dissociation...

    Hi, My DP/DR is not nearly and bad as it used to be, but I still get the existential questions and stuff and it keeps changing my perception on the world and it's like it's wearing no me down everyday till I'm nothing. One thought in particular that is messing me up at the moment is "why are...

    Hi, I don't know if mymedication is making me feel worse or if its just because my dissociation is so profound. I am as possibly depersonalised with a total loss of identity as is possible. I am 3 days into pregabalin. Can anybody relate to feeling this way about medication? Is there any...

    Hey, I am new to the forum, and I guess I should give a little background before I start. Unfortunately, depersonalization is not something I am also new to. I have struggled with depersonalization (and derealization) for over four years now. I should also note beforehand that I have always...

    I dealt with symptoms of DP/DR for many years without understanding them as such. Now that I am in therapy, I have started being able to track my symptoms more clearly. What I am discovering is that while some of my DP/DR symptoms are ALWAYS present (visual snow, for example), I am actually...
