hi my names justine I’m 23 I have been struggling with dpdr since I was 15. It all started after a bad trip from smoking too much weed out of a bong. I woke up the next morning and I felt that I died and I was in some after life/coma. It feels like I can’t even recognize my own family. I’m talking out of my body 24/7. I can’t sit down with my family or go to family events because I get panic attacks of how they look and how my surroundings look. Sadly to say this feeling has not gone away in 7 years now. I never snapped out of it. I feel it’s Permanent. I thought for so long something was wrong with my brain and that there’s no way this can be mental. I saw a neurologist that Did testing of my brain and they found nothing. I’ve had ct scans, mris, various amounts of blood work and nothing shows. I also struggle with severe panic attacks, ocd, and health anxiety too. I’m scared I’m stuck this way. I don’t even remember what it feels like to feel alive and normal Does anyone else experience it 24/7 too? And what has helped you? I was on pristiq for 2 years and omg it was my miracle drug. It made me be able to live my life and feel so more more comfortable. Lessened the Derealzation and anxiety. Unfortunately it stopped working for me and nothings helped since. I highly recommend pristiq for anyone wanting to try a med for their dpdr. Only downside is Withdrawals weaning off it are TERRIBLE.
