    Hello, I have Depersonalization and Derealization 24/7 for 7 years now. I used to do a lot of Mindfulness way back which really helped me. And i'm trying to pick it up again. Sometimes i notice i feel a little more aware of myself when doing this. But it only lasts for maybe one hour. Are...

    Okay so I'm pretty sure I have dpdr. I'm 20 years old. Basically I was messing around with weed and mushrooms for a few weeks. I noticed my anxiety was really high when smoking and stuff. Anyway one day I went to my room casually like normal. And then suddenly I felt like my body was being...

    Hey folks, long time (decades) DP/DR sufferer and lurker here. I am at my wits' end with my current regimen, even though it's the "best" I've found in my 27 years of TR DP/DR, Depression, OCD, Anxiety. In a nutshell, my compulsive mental checking (the OCD) often triggers a Spike (i.e. a...

    Hey so 5 weeks ago I smoked weed ( I have smoked weed before) but this time was way more traumatizing.

    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 everyone, I'm hoping I can connect with someone dealing with the same situation. After I watched Harris Harrington's dpdr program a few years back everything he said clicked with me. I lived half of my life pretending that my family was normal until I realized it was dysfunctional and...

    I keep having extremely existential thoughts like the following: - I think about how the universe can even exist - I think about how weird it is we're living on a rock in space - I think about how it's weird we exist and are conscious - I get scared of the idea of eternity - I've also been...

    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've been suffering from dpdr for 3 years now, and most of this time my symptoms were pretty straightforward. Feeling distant from people, world looked weird, cognitive difficulties, emotional numbness etc... Lately though I'm in a confused state that borders delirium. I cannot explain what it...

    Hello this is my first post so I'll just get right into it I've had constant 24/7 derealisation since I had a panic attack two months ago. Not sure what to do.

    As the title says, after 5 years of being DPDR free it has come back. I'm really annoyed and upset that I'm in this mental state again. I can live with most of the awful feeling for the most part, but what is keeping me feeling like I'm going nuts or that I'll never be better is the following...

    Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've visited this wonderful forum. long story short I was diagnosed with dpdr and cptsd about 2 years ago, and since then with no improvement the mere mention of dpdr makes me dissociate, as I'm writing this now, I start to feel detached, I can't really...

    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...
