I'm frustrated too. I have to take a leave of absence from my job and I don't know when I'll go back.
I know that a lot of ppl are negative on this site and it's hard to read sometimes. I have had periods of feeling ok. Which are wonderful even though it comes w a lot of anxiety.
But right now, at this moment, it is very hard. I forget where I put stuff a moment ago. And time goes very slowly.
Ppl say that there is a hyper awareness to this disorder, but it is all you have sometimes.
An inability to stay on topic is also tricky.
My day today will be getting help with my leave of absence from work and going to the dr. Also helping a friend with a will signing.
As frustrating as it is to try and get rid of it, it usually depends on how the person got DP/DR. It might take longer for someone who developed DP/DR to recover if they got it from some sort of psychological trauma as opposed to someone who got it from substance abuse.
