    Hi there, I've been struggling a lot with blank mind lately. In the beginning of my DP (earlier this year) I still had the cognitive ability to reflect and have an inner dialogue about the symtoms. Despite of my symtoms I felt a sense of purpose, since I had a meta-state where I was able to...

    Hey everyone. It's taken me a while, but I think iv'e finally found a somewhat simple (okay, not that simple) way to describe my DR. It basically feels like I'm the main character in a movie that I'm acting in, and that I memorized the script in my head to a t. But when it actually comes time...

    Hello everybody! ;-) Does anybody know how Harris Goldberg (director of the DP-inspired hollywood-movie "Numb") recover from depersonalization disorder? I know he overcame his DP, but how did he do it? Did he take medication? Did he see a therapist? Thanks for your help! JottEff

    Am I the only one who has felt like it's not really me that is breathing? Like I can hear myself breathe, but I don't feel like I'm the one that is actually breathing, which freaks me out. I also feel like everything is a dream all the time. I question everything if what is happening right in...

    Hi, I'm a 13 year old boy with GAD and I've been having severe and regular panic attacks since about 2009, aged 6. I developed DP/DR symptoms around 2/3 years ago. I've been on and off with my symptoms and they've been fairly manageable up until now, yet this year they've sky rocketed and I...

    Hi, I've had dp/dr since about 2015. Since then it got a bit better (less anxiety attacks, more assurance the world is real etc) but now I don't know what's happening to me. Before with dp/dr I had emotional numbness and it scared me, but I got over it. Today I don't know what happened but I...

    Hello everyone! So I have been up and down with my depersonalization the last few weeks, certain things are better and some things are worse.

    When I was 14 I struggled with DP/DR from smoking weed. I cant remember when it actually went away or how long it took, but eventually it did I just don't remember it being as bad as it is today. My DP/DR started in February of this year when I was pregnant. Nothing stressful had happened and...

    Hi all, I've been struggling with persistent dp/dr for about 1.5 months now, following taking a pill of MDA. For me, when I'm in a stress-free, familiar, positive environment, I can feel "ok", but only because 100% of my attention can be focused on the immediate moment. In these cases, I don't...

    Hello, So I started suffering with DP/DR about a year ago and I think it was because of constant overthinking (because of my OCD) and that was causing me to get anxious which in result caused me to feel numb. Anyway, I suffered for around a year and now I think I'm over the worst part but I...

    Hey, So ever since I started suffering with DP/DR (since about May 2015) I feel like I don't care? I, like a lot of people, had emotional numbness in the beginning but then it got slightly better. Overall I guess DP/DR has gotten better in the sense that I deal with it better, it doesn't freak...

    My head feels locked in neutrality and remoteness, I have a hard time accessing my thoughts and it feels like the voice in my head is gradually getting quieter the worst my condition gets. Simply processing the informations and memorizing simple things is a hassle, it's not just my emotions...

    While my DP is pretty much gone, I have two remaining symptoms which are kind of annoying. When I'm under a lot of stress I'll notice that my arm and foot will feel like they aren't there. It's not a physical numbness, persay. But it just feels off. I usually can ignore it when my mind is...
