DAE get triggered by the mere mention of dpdr?

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've visited this wonderful forum.

long story short I was diagnosed with dpdr and cptsd about 2 years ago, and since then with no improvement the mere mention of dpdr makes me dissociate, as I'm writing this now, I start to feel detached, I can't really research allot about this topic, and in general it's hard to talk about it to anyone because of the dissociation, and also, well you know, most people don't understand.

so my question is this, does anyone else also have this phenomenon? how do you cope? does it get better?

oh and just for the heck of it, I've started with Venlafaxine about a year ago, and I think it helped me with the emotional numbness, but I'm also in therapy and away from my abusers so who knows.. (my psychiatrist won't let me reduce my medication unfortunately)

Yes I got the same thats why i learned to try to avoid explaining it to people or think of it.To the ones who already know i have this i just refer to it as "voldemort".Like "voldemort is currently very strong in this moment"
