  1. Introduce Yourself
    Hi everyone, first I want to apologize if my English is not perfect, since English is not my native language. I'm living with DP/DR for about 6 years now (with a interuption of 2 years) and have now decided to share my story. It started when I was 17 years old, just a few days after I got...
  2. Introduce Yourself
    Hey everyone, I was so excited when I found this site on reddit and I'm hoping to be a part of this community. I've been mild/moderately depersonalised/derealised for about 2 years now. At first I didnt even notice I was feeling nothing. It's like a vacuum sucked the feelings out of me, I know...
  3. Introduce Yourself
    I've had this for years. My sister and I started spending more time together and I recognized stuff we had in common that I hadn't seen as symptoms. We both now have our proper diagnosis. While it doesn't change anything, I feel like I can now address it properly with more understanding of its...
  4. Introduce Yourself
    Hi, I'm 22 years old, almost 23, and I've recently started to deal with what I believe to be DP/DR symptoms, and as most people who go through it, I'm very, VERY scared! Instantly as I was going through this forum, which I'm sooo happy to have found, I was able to identify with some of the...

    Hey everyone, just wanted to introduce myself, I am a fellow Depersonalization sufferer, marijuana induced, but I've had the disorder in short spurts since I was a little kid.

  7. Introduce Yourself
    Hi Everyone, So I have just found this forum and thought I would write my story in hopes that someone out there might have a similar story or be able to relate. I first experienced derealisation back in 2002 (16 years old) during my first ever panic attack. My nan was dying of cancer, i was in...

    Excuse the perhaps lack of context, I'm pasting this straight from a document I wrote a little while back. This is the only way I can think of properly introducing myself on this forum so here you go: A few years ago, when I was just starting high school and throughout a great portion of my...

    So my DP story starts back in early July 2015 it was the first time I experienced it and it went away after two weeks. Fast forward to October 2015, now I spend everyday feeling my DP. Panicking and anxiety all the time, I can't sleep its that bad sometimes. I can't be alone and I have no one to...
  11. Introduce Yourself
    Hi everyone, I'm new here but have been a DP/DR sufferer for 11 years. I just wanted to share my story, both for my own therapeutic reasons and in hopes that it can comfort others in knowing you are not alone. Like many others, I believe my DP/DR may have been triggered by marijuana use at a...

    Hi Guys, I'm new here, and my English is not very good, so now you know. I'm a 22 year old guy from Holland. Since a little more than a year from now, I suffer from derealization. It started when I participated in a concentration experiment/study. I had to concentrate very hard for a very long...
  13. Introduce Yourself
    Wow. I guess I need this. I woke up, terrified, and came to the forum to read. It seems to be one of the only things helping me cope with my latest bout with DR/DP. I did NOT expect to write all this. It just kept flowing out of me. It is written a little incoherently and started out a...
  14. Introduce Yourself
    Hello! My name is Allison, and I'm sixteen years old. As of October 22nd, 2014, I started experiencing terrible existential depression. I was up just a few hours too late and I thought about my existence. Ironically enough, it was sort of a joke. Like, 'Ha, it's late, time to contemplate my...
  15. Introduce Yourself
    Hello, my name is Shawn and I want to share how I feel and hopefully find a solution for myself, and give support to others who have been through what I have been through. A quick run-down of how it started. When I was in grade 9 just a couple of years ago I was introduced to pot like many...
  16. Introduce Yourself
    Hello. I'm new to this site but have been experiencing on and off DP/DR since I was about 14 (I am now 17). I can probably say that my DP/DR has come from drug use, although it apparently runs in my family on my dad's side, but it started off after having my first bad trip on synthetic...
