Hi! I'm a 25 year old woman suffering from (drug-induced) dp/dr for more than 7 years now. I haven't posted on this board before, but I'm reading it since couple of weeks.
For years I tried to ignore my dp/dr and just tried to live a "normal life". But in the end I couldn't do it anymore.
So I made some big changes in my personal life, I found a therapist (again) and started to do yoga. My dp/dr got better, but didn't totally disappear. A month ago I decided to stop taking birth control pills (after 10 years). And I feel so much better :D So more real. I can concentrate better, my emotions returned. I feel almost normal again (not 100%, but it is getting better everyday)!

Is there anyone with the same experience?

Hi Mandy, I can relate to the thing you said about birth control pills. They made me feel like a bit zombie - I never felt very bad, but not so good either, like my emotional range was diminished. I guess you know what I'm trying to explain. I have had an intrauterine device - just the thing with copper, no hormones - now for five years, and it has been a great choice to me. I'm glad you feel better with therapy and yoga, I have thought of starting yoga too, but haven't had time for that yet (well I guess interest actually, as I seem to be so lazy...)

Very interesting! I moderate on a post partum website and many women get this after delivery, when the hormones take a sudden plunge! Oh, those wonderful little hormones! It is so great that you have found out that that little pill may have been just the thing that was keeping your body out of whack!!!

I have heard that taking estogen can make your symptoms worse or better. Same with progesterone. So much more research should be deticated to this.

I 'd love to hear more from you and how you are doing. I sure hope you just keep on getting better and better!!!
