    [An important note: if you are 'new' to all of this, do yourself a favor: turn off your computer and try to forget about depersonalization or derealization.] You can find my introductory post from 2012 here...
  3. Introduce Yourself
    Hello to whoever reads this! I'm 24 years old, and I am from Norway. I thought I'd share my story. I think mostly to help myself. I was recently diagnosed with BPD, or Borderline Personality Disorder. My psych actually calls it by its less common name Emotional Unstable Personality Disorder...

    So, about a year ago, I discovered that a low-fat, vegan diet was able to eliminate much of my dissociative symptoms, although it was definitely not a cure. It's been months since I last consumed oil-containing food, and during this time I felt much better than before and wanted to believe that...

    Hi guys. I'm sorry if I shouldn't be creating this topic, but I'm really, really desperate. I'm not gonna tell my whole story here, but basically I've been dealing with DRDP for 2 years 24/7 (yes, I got the no-rest, no-space-between-episodes, constant version). I also have depression and...

    Thought I'd start a diary on my experience with lamotrigine. A very brief background: Am 29, Male, from the UK. Suffered all my life with panic disorder which appear as a result of DP/DR. Started an SSRI when I was 17 and life improved to the point where I tried to come off them at 28. Three...
  9. Introduce Yourself
    Before I start... I just want to thank you so much for reading this. This is the scariest thing I've ever had happen to me in my life and the comfort I get from knowing that someone else had/is having the same experience as me is invaluable. I'm 24 years old, have a boyfriend of 5 years...

    I'm so sick of doctors telling me what to do. That I should try to deal with this through therapy and that I have to give my meds over 3 months to work. It's just back and forth. My current pdoc lives over 75 miles away. I go there he says nothing. Just asks me how I feel. And I want to be...

    Background info: I'm going to attempt to make this a short post but I'm willing to go more in depth if anyone wants me to. I have a ton of experience that I feel would be very helpful as far as medications go (ie what has worked and what hasn't). I also am willing to go more in depth with my...

    I find this rather intriguing you guys (and girls). I have been researching for hours now. I will try and sum this all up with a brief explanation. According to many articles and researchers, the neurotransmitter "glutamate" may play a key role in ptsd, dissociation, schizophrenia, prolonged...

    Hi, I'm a french girl, 30 years old (sorry for my english by the way), and I have DP for the second time. First time was 5 years ago, and I had it during 1,5 year. I began a therapy (psychoanalysis) and with time, DP disappeared slowly. Because of a heavy past (incest), now the DP came back in...
