Dpdr won’t go away because of fear of dpdr

I believe at least that my dpdr started from ocd over my breathing ( which has gone away a long time ago ) but my dpdr has remained. Everyone says work on why you got dpdr in the first place and once that goes then dpdr will go... so why hasn’t mine gone? Is it because I fear and hate dpdr so much ? It’s the worst thing in the world.

I hear you! It's horrible. How long have you had this & what symptoms are you having. The hardest thing about depersonalization is not thinking about it. You're not alone, hun. I've had this for nine months chronic, it's soul destroying. X
It’s been three months this time. First time I had it in 2011 was for over a year and then in 2017 I had it for a month. I think I might have more derealization than depersonalization. I have the drunk/drugged vision (brain and eyes can’t connect with things or people), dulled emotions, tired, no motivation, anxious and depressed all 24/7. I feel like if the vision part went back to normal I would be totally fine.
Wait I’m sorry can you explain that a little better ?!
I wonder why the brain takes different amounts of time to heal? I had it for over a year once, then for a month and now I’m at 3 months for a third time around :( or whys it last so many years for some and a week for someone else? I hate it
