I was almost completely cured of DPDR that I had experienced at different levels on and off for about 5 years. About a month ago, I was around people smoking weed which sent me into a panic and then I had a close family member die that night as well. My DPDR has been back full force ever since then. My doctor prescribed me sertraline (Zoloft) and I've been taking that for about two weeks. My anxiety and DPDR are still pretty much the same. DPDR is affecting my school, job and relationships. I don't feel like myself and I'm scared I'll never get back to the happy, energetic person I was just a few months ago. Does anyone have any tips or has anyone gotten better using SSRI's like Zoloft? Any words of encouragement or positive experiences would be great. I was supposed to move across the country this summer and now my whole life is coming to a hault because of this. I can't even talk to or connect with my closest friends. Reading is even hard for me. Any help would be really great.
