I'm curious about others' experience with DP/DR. Mine started when I was 15, with the first episode of feeling detached, and ever since seems to go in this cycle: worsening in the fall/winter, getting better in spring/summer, then repeating, all the while getting progressively worse. The way it appeared out of the blue makes me think it's genetic, or perhaps is caused by some chemical imbalance that is causing my brain to do this. Can anyone else relate to this? I've also had physical symptoms, popping in my forhead, which seems almost as if another part of my brain is taking over for the damaged part of my prefontal cortex over time, probably as a result of an unbearable amount of stress/anxiety. Any thoughts are appreciated!
