    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...

    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.

    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...
