  3. Spirituality Discussion
    Hey, to support my "incoming" recovery from DP/DR i want to daily meditate. I listen to 528hz and 432hz everyday, i don't think it works. But are there any other frequencies or meditation, that helped you cope with this condition?
  4. Depersonalization & Media
    I have had DP/DR for 12 years and have found ways to recover and thrive again. I will be doing a video series on youtube discussing, first what dp/dr is, the symptoms that it causes mentally and physically, what makes dp/dr worst, the best diets to be on, the best routine to have in life, and...
  5. Treatment Options
    I usually cannot tolerate serotonergic/dopaminergic medications but hydroxyzine is the least offensive and most helpful out of the ones that I've tried. Hydroxyzine helps a tiny with OCD and general anxiety, but nothing compares to a benzodiazepine in terms of how it makes you feel aka "the...

    Hey guys, A while ago Ive expressed how Zolpidem, or Zolpidem Zartrate also known as Ambien, completely cures my Dp/Dr. Although it gained a lot of views, I have not gotten one response. I truly feel as if this is the answer we all have been looking for. The freedom last for roughly an hour...
  7. Recovery Stories
    Hi! So I am a 20 year old female, and I recently started having existential thoughts + DP/DR last month. I remember what triggered it, I was watching a video of WWYD (The TV show) and in it, they discussed the amount of people in America with alzheimers and how serious of an issue it is. I...

    Hi All, Allow me to first, express my most deep sincere apologies for how harsh the realities of coping with dp/dr may seem at times. I have been dealing with this since I was in high school, I am 24 and approaching 6 years of having dp/dr. I am married to a beautiful woman who supports me and...
  9. Introduce Yourself
    Hello! I have read many posts on this forum over the years but have now just decided to create an account and make a post of my own, mostly because I feel extremely alone and am not sure what is going on with me anymore. Anyway, I have had DP/DR three times prior to now, once when I was 12...

    Hey! I'm a 16 year old girl who has suffered from dr for 2 months and dp for around a week. It started as the world feeling 'fake' and would come and go. At that time I was completely connected to myself and family.It randomly came on in class but I had it for a couple of days before then. I had...
  11. Introduce Yourself
    Like many of you, I entered a derealized state after smoking weed. I can remember the date like it was yesterday, February 24, 1978. I had spent the entire day getting high. In those days, nobody knew what DP/DR was (I only have Derealization and once in a while the Depersonalization clicks on...

    I believe this to be true for me. Whenever I have a strong motivation or interest in activities, esp anything work related, dp lessens considerably. At that moment, I'm too engaged in the activity I don't give a fuck about dp. dp just becomes boring and unimportant. Also, I suddenly start to...
  15. Introduce Yourself
    Hello, I'm Jäger. My story begins 5 years ago, when I was 15 years old. Summer night, I bought a 2 liter of Mountain Dew, a couple Monsters and a bag of chips. School had just ended for me, and I was playing games online for 20 hours a day, and sleeping for only 4 hours of the day. All day and...

    Im 16 years old and in High School, what I noticed is that when I walk to my class, with my friend during lunch or paying attention in class everything seems to overwhelm me so much. My dp/dr has been very intense lately and in the past it would only come and go. I am having trouble processing...

    4/20/2013. That was the day, that was the day that the dp/dr hit me, and I'm not lying to you when I say that it hit me like a truck. I remember the day down to a T and It's something I never want to experience again and that I would not even wish on my worst enemy. 4/20/2014 started out like...

    I have this feeling that some invisible bastard is controlling my thinking, actions, etc. I'm not schizo as I'm aware my thinking is bullshit but it just FEELS like it. The moments when I had my dp/dr gone, I felt like that bastard was gone and I finally felt free. There are other things that...
