    Happy New Year! "I" had dp/dr for 2 decades. Many realizations/revelations happened to me in 2018. Take 15 mins or so to do this now. Please don't look a head at the subsequent steps. Just do the 1) sit in a quiet place and relax. Breathe in and out. If your mind has thoughts, let them come and...

    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...

    So...this is my story experiencing Depersonalization (and also some derealazation). I have been suffering this for One year now, and truth be told, it has been the most horrendous, emotional , hardest time of my whole life. I'm no stranger to Mental Health issues, but Depersonalization has...

    Hi, I've had DP/DR since 2015 and whilst the physical symptoms have gone and I do feel more connections to people, I still get existential questions. My question is: how can I be at peace with them? I know there's not answer to them and I have to accept that, but how? Has anyone else who had...
  6. Depersonalization & Media
    We can all 'space out' now and then. We get to work and realise we haven't noticed a thing we walked past, or find we are on the last biscuit without realising. And when big life changecomes, again, it's a normal response to feel overwhelmed. Anyone who has lost their job, or lost a loved one...

    Hi, I started thinking about how reality is all subjective and we all perceive it differently and it really freaks me out. Cause then we might as well all be living in different realities. And no one can ever actually truly relate to another right?? I'm so scared please help me

    For a while I've been plagued with the thought that for some reason, spontaneously, the world I am observing and living in will slip away and I will either A) Fall into an abyss of pure nothingness and blackness and spend eternity in this isolated hell or B) I will just die and lose all...
  9. Managing DPD
    Hi all, I've been a member for some time, but never posted. I originally joined maybe 3-4 years ago when my dpdr was at its absolute worst. I was 15 at the time, now I am 19 and have experienced a great deal of recovery over the past year. I used to experience incredibly severe dissociation, so...

    Before reading my post, I please ask you to take a moment to look at what you consider consciousness to be. Imagine we take away your personality, your memories, your ability to think, essentially everything that makes you, you. What is left is a very minimal "essence" of you that simply feels...
  12. Introduce Yourself
    Hello everyone, I have been suffering from the symptoms of depersonalization/derealization for about 3 years now. I am 19 years old and until recently the symptoms weren't too bad and I just associated them with being tired. I have never really been an overly social person, I didn't have many...
  13. Introduce Yourself
    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...

    SPOILER: Angry ranting and lots of cussing. Having spent the last... fuck, God knows how long, searching the internet for answers, I came here. I need to get this off my chest for once. When I was a kid, I was obsessed with magic. I'm still obsessed with magic. Magic never happens (at least...

    Hey guys, me again, feel pretty shitty at the moment but writing here always keeps me a bit grounded. Deep in my heart, i know that it is reality what i experience. But somehow, i think, i literally fear accepting that this is reality. Can anyone relate? Everytime i start thinking about...

    I notice that despite my dreams being very ominous and disturbing.. They feel more real than being awake. I feel "awake" in my dreams. Before DP I it was vice versa. Do you feel more alive in your dreams, too? Also, have any of you developed different sleeping habits with DP being present? Ie...

    My dp started 3 years ago. i remember the moments leading up to the incident. I was never so fixated on me inside. but 20 minutes later i underwent the biggest mental processing shift ever. it happened after i had a bad panic attack high. i view it as when i let out all the insecurities and...

    I see a lot of people wondering why their memory is so bad, why they don't feel like themselves, why they look back on years of DP and wonder "how the hell did that go so fast?" It's all connected to your lost sense of time. I saw someone say earlier that our sense of time is off because we're...
