This is a really stupid question. But I'm so desperate for hope.

Im a 16 yr old male who developed constant dp/dr six weeks ago. It was very manageable at first but overtime it just kept getting worse. I would describe the progression of my dp/dr as a downhill slope with very tiny uphill "bumps" but the trend is that it got consistently worse over the six week period. This past week it has gotten to the point of being unbearable. To summarize it the best way: Everything is so overwhelmingly confusing, even my own thoughts. Im depressed and anxious. I cant do regular tasks without freaking out.

At this point I dont care about recovery. I just want it to get better, just so I can stay above the surface. So does it? The severity of it now doesnt really compare to how it was just two weeks ago.

I went to the mall with a few friends today and socializing really does relieve it a little. Im just scared that its gonna get to a point where nothing will help me.

I just want some hope right now.

No matter what it is gonna stay forever but you will get used to it.
Im okay with that. But I just dont want it to keep getting worse. Does it stop getting worse eventually? Its been getting worse for six weeks since it started.

Right now you will feel that you are in hell, but keep pushing, have blackseed oil and keep experimenting with supplements, after 6 months it will get less heavy, though every month you will feel it's atleast better than previous month but after one year you won't feel like you are in hell, much in control, and right now at beginning you will feel that you are one second away from real event after one year u will feel like 0.15 sec away with no head pressure or eye pressure, lol, and just stop looking at your fucking hand and keep analyzing and whatever I said before was just to scare u and have fun, it will get alot easier comparitively, on feeling level if starting phase is hell, before DP it was heaven, so think after one year it will be in a middle, it's like just having a bad exhausting day after work you felt before dp.

Just pass your time don't forget to take pure black seed oil everyday, with vitamin B, fish oil and honey as an add on if u want.

Oh yeah, it will get worse in start, for me when it started it took me around one month to get full blown dp attack it kept increasing for one more month coz my anxiety levels were very high and it's natural knowing that u r fucked and listening this stories will scare the shit out of any person in the beginning when you had a perfect life and suddenly a thing which you never heard of have potentially sticked with u life time.

Many people say it's anxiety condition but it's not just anxiety, anxiety makes it worse, but without anxiety dp is not that bad, you will feel that you are not anxious but if you can't tolerate your dp than naturally your anxiety levels are high right now which will slowly come down with time, coz with anxiety and depression dp is not that bad give your brain time to heal.

Thanks so much, gives me a lot of hope and comfort. Their was a brief two and a half week period where anxiety was practically nonexistent, but it still got worse. I feel like it still got worse because I still had a shit ton of underlying stress and unprocessed emotions that was present even before the dp/dr. I think im overreacting to the fact that its getting worse. Anyways, thankyou.

Even I felt in beginning that I don't have anxiety but still have dp but anxiety in dp is different than usually we suffered before dp, you will understand it later and realize it's not that bad. Just watch movies and sleep and pass time and yeah keep taking black seed oil 100% pure half to full spoon everyday for lifetime.

Start it asap, don't listen to anyone else, they all will throw different things which are worthless, in case, if you want to feel good try Mucuna pruniens too sometimes but that's optinal, Blackseed oil is mandatory.

What worked for you?
i made a recovery thread you can read but basically i got used to it and fully accepted it then one day i noticed i have been symptom free for months, would have recovered much sooner if i just stopped obsessing about it.

Do you still feel anxious, low, depressed sometimes? Like when you don't sleep or when you worked more?

Thanks for the response

I dont know, im worried. The first week I was obviously consumed by anxiety and depression, But that weekend I got my shit together and started living. I was actually doing pretty damn good. I could distract myself from it for 30 minutes at a time and was honestly genuinely mentally ok. I guess I still thought about it a lot, but my anxiety was at a minimum and my depression was gone. Looking back though I remember eating ALOT, which was probably due to stress. But over time it just kept getting worse. Im on week 6 now and I simply can't distract myself from it anymore. If it still gets worse I cant comprehend how bad it will be a month from now.

Im going to the doctor next week, and I will probably get put on some sort of medication, not sure if that's advisable.
