It's unbelievable that next to nothing is known about this pathology we all share. That's one of the worst things about DP.....that doctors and everyone else gives you a look like a "deer in headlights" when you mention it. It pisses me off so bad that it's conflated with anxiety. Clearly, we are not anxious 24/7, but have anxiety as a secondary element to this BS.
I don't think anything is ever going to change in the medical research community, because they are all in a big circle jerk over us as all having primarily an anxiety disorder.
