I been having DP/DR/brain fog for 7 years, it started after a panic attack. When i had gave birth to my child 4 years ago, the fog lifted (im sure it was, and is a proof that DP is created by wrong amounts of hormones/neurotransmitters) and i got my emotions back. After some months the DP came back, 24/7 that is. Anyway, now ive been eating lamictal for 3 months, and anafranil for 3 weeks. For the last 3 days i cant even describe what happening.. my empathy is back!!! I feel warm fuzzy feelings for my family members (so strong i just want to hug them), get sad when i read a sad thing in the newspaper. This is so overwhelming i cant even believe its happening. I know that a bad phase can come again, but at least now i have hope. And this comes from a person how for the last 6 months almost been suicidal! Just wanted to give some hope to some people!
