    Hi, I think I've accidentally, in my efforts to control and understand DP, created a horrible habit in my brain. That now is kind of ruining me, worse than my original symtoms. In the beginning, even though my symtoms were scary, I found ways to cope and sooth them. It could be affirmations...

    My Recovery Story First, let me say that the reason you'll see more bleak stories and comments than positive ones is that once you've recovered, you're back to living your life and you've moved past it, so generally speaking you don't feel like taking the time to revisit and write about your...
