    Hello, so I'm no stranger to DPDR, in fact I had it for about 5 years now, with 2 and a half years being 'cured'. Initially Prozac cured me 100% (I often see people say it never fully goes away, not true for me), in 2018 I had to learn that alcohol binges were a trigger for me, and I've had 3-4...

    Hey, I've been lurking here for a while now and I feel like it's time to tell my story. Since I am not a native speaker, I apologize for any linguistic errors. My story of struggling starts circa 2 years ago after i finished school. Then i went on holidays for about 2 weeks and got a job...
  3. The Daily Forum
    I finally don't care about anything DPDR can throw at me... except the emotional numbing. I could have the worst existential thoughts, panic, vision problems, memory problems anything... I wouldn't care if I just had my emotions which I can then distract myself with by doing fun things or...
  4. Recovery Stories
    Hi everyone! This is really hard, just being on this forum makes my heart pound. But I really want to help, I know how hard and just hellish going through dp is, so if I can give even one person in here a tiny bit of hope it's worth a bit of discomfort on my part. First of all, English isn't...
  5. Discussion
    One of the biggest things I struggle with regarding DP is my complete and utter lack of emotions. I can only really feel anxiety, guilt and shame and the occasional slight frustration. I feel nothing when I laugh, nothing when I cry, I don't feel love for my friends, family or pets, I can't...

  8. Depersonalization & Media
    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...

    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...

  17. Introduce Yourself
    Hello, I've been suffering from DP for about 4 months now, and in all honesty I was doing very well with it after the first 2 months. I did not feel disconnected anymore, but I kept feeling emotionally numb, or what I thought was numbness. It really was just my emotions being dulled down. I...
