    INTRODUCTION I am a 16 year old male who developed DP/DR seven weeks ago. One of the few things I still like to do in this state is write, so this is me doing that. After living through the last 50 days- each one being a new form of hell, after scavenging the internet for every piece of text...

    Okay so last week I took about an hour and a half writing this post explaining in full detail my situations but then I got a server error and it deleted the whole thing and for some reason I couldn't retrieve where it was auto saving LOL. So I thought I'd just summarize instead of giving the...

    Hey guys, I want to remind you all that DPDR is absolutely, completely curable. It'll involve rejecting your scary thoughts in ways you've never been brave enough to do before, but it is completely worth it. I'm a girl in my 20s... this condition once dominated my entire life, but I've been...

    Hi everyone! I am really happy to say that I'm basically fully recovered. I will spare everyone the long story we've all heard about what it's like to suffer from DPDR.

    Today is exactly one month that I am DP-free. DP was never my main problem, but it was the most acute. I felt as if I was not able to work on anything else while DPd, as I had no capacity to process things as I usually do. The other day my knowledge of another foreign language came back, only...

    Hello, Due to being alone for 2 weeks now, my solipsism thoughts and feelings are very bad right now. I was like 80-90% recovered, because I had a lot of work to do. I kinda felt "real" again and I slowly began to "believe" in consciousness of other people again. That was 3-4 weeks ago. I even...

  14. The Daily Forum
    So I have been a member of this site for awhile, popping in every few years to make note of something. But this is really good news I think. Since I was about 11 I started to not connect with my reflection in the mirror. Intellectually I know it's 'me' but cannot feel an emotional/physical...
