    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...

    So it's been a short while since I posted here and I felt now more than ever it is something I should do. Just to share my story (selfish right?) and also to see if anyone else is out there that is having a similiar journey. So around a month and a half ago I reached my breaking point with...

    For a while I've been plagued with the thought that for some reason, spontaneously, the world I am observing and living in will slip away and I will either A) Fall into an abyss of pure nothingness and blackness and spend eternity in this isolated hell or B) I will just die and lose all...

    So lately I have been dealing with depersonalization and derealization. It all started about 4-5 weeks ago when a girl from my hall was in my dorm. I looked at her and thought to myself, "What makes her her? Why is she the way she is? Why is that her personality?" and as I was doing this, I took...

    I'm female myself, and I don't know how many girls there are in this forum. But I've noticed that during or before my period my DP/DR is notably worse.
