Having been reading this forum for over a year now I should probably know the answer to my question but I'm a slow learner. So I visited a new doctor. She stated I'm depressed and have dp/dr. I asked her if she thought the last two are symptoms of the first, or symptom of anykind, but she said that my dissociation is an illness of it's own. And that's the total opposite of what I've been reading from this forum. So should I know think I'm having the actual Depersonalization Disorder and not just for example depression/anxiety symptomized with depersonalization and derealization?
