    I'm suffering from DPDR for almost 2 years. There were few reasons why it happened, but the main reason was the I was smoking weed. The first weeks were the hardest, I didn't feel alive at all, wasn't able to sit and talk with my mom or see my girl friend. After I went to psychology and start a...

    I work 8.30am to 5pm daily and then do an hour of gym from 5.30-6.30pm. I usually have a half dose (100mg modafinil or 75mg armodafinil which I get it from highstreetpharma) with my morning coffee and it definitely gets me through the day. My question is, would it be ill advised to take a...

    Hello all, I've written here a post a while ago about the treatment, which it was right but it needs some tweaks, so I'm writing this post to update you on the tweaks. Disclaimer: if you want to follow the treatment, do it at your own risk. I've wrote before that it's an electrolytes...

    After having suffered with DP/DR for a couple years off and on and some bouts with it when I was little, what I noticed was my eyes. I know you can relate! Whatever you are suffering with that brought you to this forum, you know exactly what I am referring to here. I remember getting DP'd some...

    I've been suffering from it for a few years now, I think it's getting better or at least parts of the disorder are getting better. But when I first realized something is terribly wrong I was 19 and I went to all kind of doctors and specialists, neurologists, psychologists and psychiatrists...

    Every so often, I come back to post about this. Medical marijuana drastically helps me with this condition, but I have no idea if it will help or hurt others. However, I have to share on that off-chance that it might give someone else their life back too. The medication I use is this [link...
  7. Introduce Yourself
    Hey all, I am 27 year old and have struggled with DPDR (especially derealization) for over two years now. In this period of time I have suffered a LOT, but I have also learned a lot and am slowly getting out of the hole that is DPDR. Hopefully forever. In this time I used these forums a lot to...

    So I just recently came across a website by a therapist in the Netherlands by the name of Ben Meijer. He claims to specialize in the treatment of DP/DR as he had it between the ages of 5-25 years of age. Since 2012 he says he’s specifically tailored his practice to treating victims of DP/DR...

    I have had dp for about 10 years. It is relatively stable now but still interferes with my life a lot. I currently manage with exercise, medications and mindfulness. I recently went back to talk therapy which did not help much as it was all about my past and trying to find trauma that I don't...

    Important notes before reading the program:- 1. If you wish to follow the program, follow it at your own responsibility, I only share information. 2. Each one of you would require different ratios of minerals, some may need more magnesium than calcium, some may need them in 1:1 ratio, etc...

    Specifically a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. Which means the cannabis I consume has an equal amount of THC and CBD. I take a very small amount every 4-6 hour's, and it makes me feel so fucking normal. It doesn't make me high, and no other formulation works as well. Brands that have worked for me...

    Hi guys, not really sure what I want to say here. I've had very little luck with therapy helping the DPDR. I have found consistency in sleep to be a major help. But meditation and grounding exercises haven't made a massive difference. My psychologist wanted me go squeeze my arms and legs or a...

    Hey guys! So this is my first time posting, and I want to help others as well as help myself. So let me give a back story! So, 4 years ago in February 2014, a senior in highschool, I had my first real panic attack in the shower (from trauma of rape and bullying). I was freaking out completely...

    Trigger warning for those who are affected by stories of failed treatment. This isn't a story to sap you of hope but it is a story of a crazy attempt to fix this thing that didn't work. Read it as a cautionary tale, I suppose. I'm a male in his 20s from Australia. When I was 14 or 15 I started...

    Hi, if anyone here happens to speak German, there is a pretty extensive article about DPD in the magazine "Gehirn und Geist" this month. It talks about possible causes, involved regions of the brain, treatment options etc. It quotes several studies and apparently the journalist has also talked...
  19. Managing DPD
    Hey DPSH DP is seriously devastating. I suffered from it 24/7 for over 4.5 years- January 2010 to around October 2014. I know how miserable it can make you feel. Like your mind is 10,000 km away. Like your body is an empty vessel. Just remember, misery loves company. You may gain strength from...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post on this forum. I suffered from chronic derealization and depersonalization for 1.5 years as a result of going through chronic SSRI withdrawal. Recently, I was cured by something and I would like to share my experience. First of all, before I get started, I...
