    As usual, this post is probably going to be very long. I wasn't too sure how I should title it, but I settled on what I did because it's essentially the overarching issue of what i'm dealing with. I feel nothing towards the idea of recovery. This is not coming from a source of depression or any...

    My disorder never ceases to amaze me with how rapidly it changes and progresses. I was doing really good for most of last week until Sunday. Saturday night I upped my dosage of Zoloft from 25mg to 50mg and man do I regret it. Combined with bad sleep, stress and anxiety about school, and I think...

    Upon discovering the tremendous therapeutic benefits journaling gives me, I realized a healthy way to use this forum would be to do just that, and be surrounded by a community in the process. First I want to start off by describing this weird and scary sensation I've been getting; hoping...

    Lmao, I knew I couldn't do it. I told myself I wouldn't post on here again, but to be fair I almost made it two weeks! yay... My disorder has made yet another increase in severity, and things are pretty fucking crazy now, I want to document what I've been experiencing since these past few days...

    This disorder is confusing the hell out of me. It seems so much more anomalous than others. Every story I read they describe the onset of being more or less abrupt. And after it happens it stays the same. Or, they developed it at a young age and over many many years it gradually worsens. But...

    Im 16 years old and I got dp/dr 7 weeks ago, since then the symptons have increasingly gotten worse, I think its somewhat related to anxiety/stress/obssesive thoughts, it started after a panic attack. Part of me thinks the primary problem isnt the anxiety though because I went a while without...

    Ive made a few other posts relating to this as well, and here I am again lol I got dp/dr almost seven weeks ago, I believe it was caused by a huge panic attack in the midst of a depressive episode, im 16. since then it has gradually worsened. It is definitely related to anxiety to some extent...

    This is a really stupid question. But I'm so desperate for hope. Im a 16 yr old male who developed constant dp/dr six weeks ago. It was very manageable at first but overtime it just kept getting worse. I would describe the progression of my dp/dr as a downhill slope with very tiny uphill...

    Before i explain my story. It is important to note that Ive actually experienced dp/dr (mainly dr) episodes since I was 7. But they lasted for only minutes to hours at a time, and grew increasingly more infrequent over time to where I could go several months without experiencing them. That is...

    During some time in August, I was triggered to fall into a dissociative episode, and around the beginning of September I fell even deeper into it. I think it's probably the worst dissociation I've ever experienced. During regular conversations I will easily zone out within 30 seconds and I have...

    it feels like my brain cant handle any one thing for longer than 15 minutes . at first i thought it was just laziness and not wanting to do things but it feels more than that. i cant even focus on hobbies that i actually enjoy doing. and its gets difficult to listen to people i care about...
  14. Introduce Yourself
    Hello everyone! ♥︎ I'm an 18 year old girl who first developed DPDR due to anxiety when I was fifteen years old. I've had ups and down, but as everyone knows, at He start it is excruciating to slowly feel as if you're slipping away from yourself and all things familiar. Most days it seems like...
  15. Introduce Yourself
    Hello everyone. I've had this disorder for quite some time now. I would say roughly 2-5 years? Not sure. And for the most part, I'm able to be at peace with my mind. I'm able to settle the physical numbness my body creates. I'm able to combat the thoughts that go through my head over the course...
  16. Introduce Yourself
    I’m desperate. I don’t even know how I’m typing this. What I think is DPDR has literally stolen EVERYTHING from me. Just keeping my eyes open is second by second torment. I wake up in the morning absolutely dumbfounded and confused. The word is blurry and vignetted and it feels like my life...

    Hi everyone So I am about 2 months down the line in my wonderful journey with dpdr - most of the symptoms have cleared up, I feel in my body most of the time, things look real enough which is progress - but at the moment I am really struggling with the Existential thoughts. I have really...
  18. Introduce Yourself
    Hey all, I am 27 year old and have struggled with DPDR (especially derealization) for over two years now. In this period of time I have suffered a LOT, but I have also learned a lot and am slowly getting out of the hole that is DPDR. Hopefully forever. In this time I used these forums a lot to...

    So I just recently came across a website by a therapist in the Netherlands by the name of Ben Meijer. He claims to specialize in the treatment of DP/DR as he had it between the ages of 5-25 years of age. Since 2012 he says he’s specifically tailored his practice to treating victims of DP/DR...

    is obsessing and being pretty much terrified about the though of being in the afterlife and being there for eternity a symptom of dp? i can’t seem to shake this and it’s ruining my life, i’m only 17 and have so much to look forward to but now i just feel hopeless that this won’t go away
