Anyone regain reality after long-term/chronic DP/DR

I'd like to know if anyone has had success or heard of others who've had success getting over DP/DR either partially or completely after 10 years plus. The reason is I haven't really ever attempted to get over "it" because I didn't know what "it" was until last year. I just figured I was alone. Now I'm starting to experiment with meds and I would just like to find out if there is hope for long-sufferers, not just drug induced sufferers. Thanks!!!

Hi, My name is Janice and I have not posted for a long time. I have had DR for 18 yrs. I have tried just about every medication there is and I have never found any thing that has helped the DR. I am now on a new anti-depressant called cymbalta. It's not helping either. I really thought that once I got off the klonopin I was addicted too for 17 yrs that eventually the DR would go away. I have been off of klonopin 17 months and the DR is as bad as it ever was. I feel as though I will live with this the rest of my life. I try to enjoy life as much as possible but it's no fun living like this. I can not concentrate and my memory is really bad. Everything is so unreal. I barely remember what it was like to be normal. I want to be normal again so bad. I am so glad I found this site again. It's hard to believe that there are so many others suffering form this illness.
Take Care, Janice
