  1. Introduce Yourself
    Hey guys! I think this is gonna be a fairly long one but hear me out please. I haven't posted on these forums since 2016. I've been free from DP/DR for about 5 years now, and I somehow felt I wanted to revisit these forums to tell my story and to provide any help I can for those still...

    I'd like to hear from people who've had chronic DP/DR for 10+ years (8 or 9 is fine too.) I'd like you to list off every kind of treatment method you've tried during your recovery. Please only list things you tried for a minimum of 1 month. Trying something for a few days, or even a week or two...

    Hi, I have been struggling with post partum anxiety over a month now. It started with an episode of derealization and I am stuck since then. I am on an antidep and an anti psych, I have seen some improvement but I am scared to go out. I can't tolerate light much and despite trying to accept my...

    Hello everyone, I just wanted to give you some hope that recovery is possible. Some background: I’m 18 years old and I began suffering from dr/dp about 7 months ago after a marijuana “od”. About two weeks after I took the edibles I started experiencing panic attacks everyday. My physiatrist...

    Dear reader, I just wanted to give you some hope if you have any feelings of despair or hopelessness. INTRODUCTION I've been experiencing feelings of DPDR for quite some time now. I really don't want to go in detail on my DPDR experience because I want to keep this post as positive as...

    Hello, I have Depersonalization and Derealization 24/7 for 7 years now. I used to do a lot of Mindfulness way back which really helped me. And i'm trying to pick it up again. Sometimes i notice i feel a little more aware of myself when doing this. But it only lasts for maybe one hour. Are...

    Hi, my name is Ruby, I'm 24 and from the UK. I suffered from Derealisation mostly, but also a few symptoms of Depersonalization, 24/7 for about 5 months, and then intermittently for 6 months. My episode was induced by an anxiety/panic attack, not drug-related. I remember seeing a lot of...
  8. The Daily Forum
    I'll try to compose this even though I'm in a very blank state at the moment. On several occasions I've found a way out through daydreaming. Or through the ability to fantasize. To play. I know we are told not to think too much. However, certain types of thinking can be a wonderful tool to...

    Hello all. My Experience I developed dp/dr when I was 18 years old, having been anorexic and bipolar. I went through a long stage of mania where I lost reality. What really triggered my dp/dr was my experience using LSD. While tripping, existential thoughts raced through my mind as my reality...

    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...
  11. Recovery Stories
    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...

I will be doing a video series on youtube discussing, first what dp/dr is, the symptoms that it causes mentally and physically, what makes dp/dr worst, the best diets to be on, the best routine to have in life, and...

    Hi Everyone, 10 years ago I was diagnosed with DP and with all of the various symptoms mentioned on these forums. As of today almost all of the symptoms are gone, as well as anxiety, depression and all of the other mental health issues I had. There are now only very minor symptoms left which I...

    Hey guys, I really feel like I need to share some positivity and hopefully inspire some of you going through what is probably the darkest time of your life. I am not 100% cured yet, but I'm the closest I've ever been and I know that a full recovery is not far away. I won't go to deep into my...
  16. Recovery Stories
    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. I started experiencing DP/DR at a very, very chaotic time in my life. I was just about to move states away from my family and...
  17. Recovery Stories
    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...
