I have had dp for the best part of 2 years now, and have been on a rollercoaster of ups and downs, good times and bad. I have tried benzo's but had a horrible experience on them, so am now determined to beat this thing 100% drug free.
Over the last 2 months, I have been forcing myself to relax for just 30 mins a day. When i say relax, I dont mean watching the TV relaxing, I mean hardcore relaxing. I lie on my bed, dimly light the room with a coloured lamp I bought, play some extremely relaxing music (nothing with a beat) and burn some essential oils in an evaporator dish. For the first few weeks I still couldnt get dp off my mind whilst lying on the bed, but I have noticed that over the last few days, for those few minutes I am relaxing, I have been actually experiencing what dp free feels like again.
Now I do it for 1 hr a day everyday and actually lookforward to my relaxing time now, and hopefully over time the dp freeness will hover around a little longer each day.
Go on, I dare you to try it, just 30 mins a day of proper, real relaxation, for 2 months, and let me know if its working. Stick with it, i have found a brief salvation from my dp hell.
Let me know how it goes
