Hi everyone. I'm Cheran, I'm 20 and I live in London. I currently attend uni. I've had dp for a week and i'm really freaking out. It's like a door opened to dp after I had pot brownies last friday. It's gotten so bad that i've had to stop studying and come home for the week to try and chill out. I'm constantly freaking out. It would mean a lot if someone who's recovered could talk to me.

My instagram is cheran_s1 and my snapchat is chezz1998 and my skype is g.scherbatsky

Thank you in advance

I know what your going through. I got DP after a panic attack on some strong weed. First 2-3 weeks I was freaking out just like you. Then I realized freaking out just makes everything worse. I just went on with my daily activities and tried my best to ignore it. Just do your best to ignore it, that's the only cure. Don't change your life to deal
with this, do what you would normally do before DP. Also I play sports, so exercise also helped me as well as drinking herbal teas.

I fully recovered after 2 months. I can now get drunk and drink coffee, and the way I look at is that Depersonalization was a gift to me, it helped me realize my anxieties and matured me as a person once I recovered. You will be better, it's not permanent.

Hey I have it again after two years free. I literally feel like my life has been whiped clear in my brain and I dunno who I am or what I am doing here. I feel like I need to think my way back to normalcy as the thoughts going round in my head dont make sense. Really frightened feels worse then last time. Linme how did u deal with feeling like nothing makes sense and almost like ur dead and never were here before.

Good reply. natural things + exercise is best way to cure. I would recommend as best and fastest working way martial arts & martial art forms (whatever wing chun, tai chi etc.) as they rely on focus and concentration. You can do it alone in ur room, pretending someone is attacking u and moving all over, or pretending some ball going at you and avoiding/ moving hand over it vigorously whatever makes u concentrate hard works great. You dont need to be "in those things", you just need will. It really works magical and of course every type of intense training works great (running, lifting weights, pushups etc.).. You just need motivation. Those things really bring your mind to normality very soon if you do it on daily basis. Also take vitamins, minerals.. herbs and teas are good choice also. I had very severe dp/dr i was almost literally brain-dead all the time, but as it started dissapearing my old problems said hello. Im agressive now and generally worse person, apathetic, no interests in relations etc. but everyone is different. Im in reality if thats the goal, and i believe there is no ultimate cure for this. For that i mean, if you get i once you can get it again later in life, since i your brain is vulnerable to that. You just need not to do things that trigger it

I am also back after almost 6 years free from this. To me it’s not the DP/DR that gets me anymore but the thoughts that go with it. I’ve gotten through it before and I will do it again. I will tell you that a lot of times when people recover, they don’t come on the site anymore bc they want to move on. But that shows that people do er better and move on.
