TO TAKE THE STUDY. PLEASE READ BELOW FOR AN INTRODUCTION.


INTRODUCTION

This study is designed to investigate depersonalization and derealization. Specifically, this study is designed to investigate both drug-induced and non-drug induced depersonalization and derealization and you can have either drug-induced or non-drug induced depersonalization and/or derealization symptoms to take the study. The study is sponsored by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (GCO # 05-0792) and the National Organization of Drug-Induced Disorders. This was also accomplished with the generous support and input from members of HPPDonline.com and dpselfhelp.com. If you choose to participate in this survey, your anonymity is guaranteed. All identifying personal information (such as name, date of birth, address and phone number) is not collected. To accomplish this, you will be provided with a randomly generated case number that will be used for you to access and complete the survey -- there is absolutely no need for you receive or send any email. If you are concerned with your IP address being recorded, please remember that you do have the option to take this test from any computer. We do not require you to use your home computer. We do not record your IP address with your survey data.

You will be provided advice on how to save your case number.

Imagine, I answered your question via PM, however the survey should be strict on the rules.

The reason there is a one day delay to take the test is to prevent individuals from repeating the test over and over again and ruining data (For example, an individual on methamphetamine who wants to ruin our data and take the test 100 times in one night). This way, we can prevent individuals from repeatedly taking the test. At best, they would have to submit a request each day.

Sorry for the delay.

To the first individual who took the test, you just got in before we fixed the closing page. It was likely that after you submitted your results you were sent back to the survey page, however this did NOT effect your results. This has been fixed this morning.

So far, 18 participants have signed up.

Please feel free to advertise the survey to anyone with DP/DR symptoms on similar web sites.

We have a day wait for the case numbers for security reasons. If you received your case number on 9/10/2005 then you would not be able to take the test until 9/11/2005 (it is not a 24 hour wait, it is based off of the date on the server only, so you may be able to take the test in 1 minute if you get your case number at 11:59PM. The date is based off of the server date, not your local date. Although we realize this is frustrating, it is neccessary as we have had problems with individuals creating posts or e-mails 100 at a time. This case, if someone is trying to ruin data we will be able to see the problems and there is no risk of a flood of bad data. This makes it *much more* difficult for individuals to create bad data and ruin it for all of us.

Thanks for your patience.
