I feel so frustrated that I don't know what to do with myself. I have been in a DP'd state for 3 months (since 1 May), my cat going missing, being really ill and then dying caused this DP to start again. I have been getting a bit better each day. I would say at the moment I feel quite normal, but not really normal. I am connecting to my sense of self, but I always seem to feel like I am near the end of the DP, I get another trigger upwards, but it never seems to be the one that clicks me back to normal. I seem stuck in my head "who am I" going around and around my head for most of the time. I was thinking perhaps I had become obsessed with who I was, but then I am 35 years old and for all of those years (when I am not DP'd) I have not been bothered by who I am. So I can only assume it is still the DP. Can anybody relate to this, feeling quite normal but still not right. I don't have too much anxiety/panic that stopped 2 days ago, but I still don't feel quite connected and it is really frustrating me. I am scared that I am not going to get out of this one. It is the longest one I have ever had. All the others have been 4-7 weeks long. I have been in a DP'd state now for 3 months and I am beginning to think I am not going to get out of it this time.

Help.... I just don't know what to do, I am running out of ideas on how to get "me" back again.

Who ARE you? If you don't want to tell me, write a letter to yourself, like a journal.
