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!!!

My onset of dp was 17 years ago. I am now 41. All along I was convinced I would get better , and gradually I have been. The last half of it has been fine really, I still feel everything is unreal etc etc but I am much more okay - less terrified about it. Getting in touch with buried extreme feelings has been really important. My onset wasn't drug induced, I had a horrendously abusive childhood including sexual/incest. The onset was caused by intense stress and horror - homelessness and believing my partner was smoking himself to death... it has been a total thing, all the time - not in and out of it.
