    When I first started suffering with DP/DR its was pretty bad. My vision was weird, I had panic attacks, I was emotionally numb, and I was questioning everything. It's a lot better now, but I still suffer with t every now and then. My question is: is it truly possible to actually FULLY recover...

    Hi Had DP/DR for 2 years now and the main problem I have with it is existentialism. Lately I've been overthinking whether or not we actually have choices in life. If a person does something bad are they really to blame? If a person has certain experiences and has lived their life in a way...

    Hey, I've been suffering with DP and DR since about 2015. It's better than it used to be in the beginning, but back then I would obsess over existential thoughts and they'd fill me with doubts and make me feel anxious. I'm better at ignoring them now, but I don't feel truly over them. They made...

    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 had DP for a good 2 and a half weeks but then it sorta lifted. I just had a feeling of things being 'wrong' and a feeling that I couldn't put my finger on. My body felt weird and alien. I was detached from my emotions. Well it started to lift but then these philosophical, metaphysical and...

    So I know the whole 'thinking the world is fake' thing is a common DP/DR symptom and a lot of people go through it, but does anyone else ever think/feel like that maybe it's a test and that if they gave in and actually genuinely started considering whether or not the world is fake and started to...

    To answer existential questions, these words matter a lot... #1. Know #2. Perceive #3. Understand

    Recently I've been having an influx of intrusive thoughts related to life and existence in addition to severe depersonalization, which, unfortunately, makes me feel like I no longer know who I am. Additionally, I am constantly questioning life and existence at every waking moment, although the...

    SPOILER: Angry ranting and lots of cussing. Having spent the last... fuck, God knows how long, searching the internet for answers, I came here. I need to get this off my chest for once. When I was a kid, I was obsessed with magic. I'm still obsessed with magic. Magic never happens (at least...
