    As the title says, after 5 years of being DPDR free it has come back. I'm really annoyed and upset that I'm in this mental state again. I can live with most of the awful feeling for the most part, but what is keeping me feeling like I'm going nuts or that I'll never be better is the following...

    I've had derealization for the past two years. The worst symptom for me is the head pressure. This strange feeling is always with me. I have been able to tolerate it, but I can never truly relax. The pressure becomes extremely intense when I first wake up, when I am tired, and when I am...

    So, i basically just want to get this off my chest and hope for some good replies. For the last week i have been thinking and kinda worrying a lot about if i may have Bipolar disorder. Why i think i am Bipolar is because of my really vivid dreams that i have during my sleep. This is really...

    Of course, we are all looking for solutions to improve our health. I have been learning more about pineal gland lately and I'm a little mind blown. I was on a Facebook DP support page and one member said that detoxifying the pineal gland is helping with symptoms. I think the pineal gland may be...

    So for the past week EVERY NIGHT I wake up an hour or so after I fall asleep and I wake up confused and scared with thoughts rushing through my head pretty fast. I go into an anxiety mode where im so scared. It takes a while to wear off (usually wears off when i focus on something else like...

    I don't know what the hell is wrong with my brain... On average it takes me 30min to an hour to fall asleep which is fine and I end up going to bed a little early so I can get my 7-9 hours in, but then randomly every other week or so I have bad nights... for the past 2 nights it has taken me...

    hi everyone, does anyone else (specifically those who struggle with the blank mind symptom) have these specific issues with sleeping?: my dp/dr and/or whatever else is wrong with me was triggered by one use of a type of ecstasy more than 2 months ago, and every morning since the incident, i have...

    After 8 months of serious dp and dr i have the feeling of not caring anymore. This may sound great but what bothers me is sometimes i think i dont have any problems anymore: when you have psychosis you also believe nothing is wrong with you. Im scared because this happened after a week of sleep...

    This year I started getting sleep paralysis quite regularly--I had experienced it maybe two or three times before but it started happening super frequently around September. It's been coming in waves, but there are times when I'll get it almost every night and often multiple times in a night...

    Lately I'm not sure if I'm getting better, worse, or staying the same. I can eat, but my appetite is usually not there until late in the evening(zoloft side effect?). I can get to sleep on my own for the most part with no sleep aides, however I'm still confused as to whether I sleep all night. I...

    For some reason whenever I am in first hour and fifth hour I get this strange fuzzy/blurry feeling. It is very hard to describe. I don't usually get to weird with it in the morning because its not that severe but in 5th hour right after I get somewhat anxious. Like I feel like I am entering...

    *Copied over from my blog, because I am lazy* My first blog entry to ever be written, as the name suggests I'm afflicted by the dp in my dreams to the same level as my woken self, I've been reasonably unwell for coming up to 5 years, my dp started with some rather extreme vertigo and related...

    Firstly, I've been feeling better recently. My body feels real again, sometimes I even think too real, but maybe that's just because I'm not used to the feelings of reality yet. I can concentrate a lot better, I still forget stuff but it's improving, the other night I looked at my clock and...

    My name's Jordan. My battle with DP started about two years ago after a series of panic attacks. I had been dealing with a lot of stuff. My brother's death, my shitty job, and the fact that I couldn't to go to art school with my friends all kind of just culminated in this storm of emotions I...

    Hi, has anyone ever tried the Sleep Restriction Therapy? I read today that not only it can help with insomnia but also can relieve depression. I strongly believe that the unplanned, difficult to control napping I do everyday is contributing to my DP/DR, depression and irritability. It's kinda...

    Hi everyone, I am a grad student in psychology with an interest in neuroscience. This story really caught my attention b/c it shows how profoundly we need sleep. It also struck me particularly hard because my current DP's onset was caused by my years of chronic stress and then lack of sleep for...

    This going to sound like my golden moment of idiocy but I've been wondering. If DP is just the by-product of a tired mind going through a lot of stress, wouldn't sleep be the best medicine. I mean, I notice when I wake up after sleeping 8 hours I generally feel good and my memories are a bit...

    Hi guys, I have been fighting against DP since 15 years and did a lot of self-monitoring over these years to identify triggers and short-term reliefs. While I could perfectly live with the dizzy feeling, what troubles me seriously is a constant tiredness that stay even with enough sleep. I am...

    I was wondering if anyone else knows this. Of course everyone knows the feeling of the unreal feeling throughout the day. You see things but you can't really process it, can't feel it etc. But what I have recently noticed is that when I'm asleep I FEEL ALIVE in my dream. I can really feel things...
