Hello people,

I am new here, but already this site has helped me immensely! I can relate to almost all the posts I have read so far. I had my first dp/dr episode when I was 17. I am now 41 and I have gone through cycles of wellness as well as cycles of depression. I also have OCD which really deepens the dp/dr. I had been well for 4 years I think (with the occasional panick attack every so often) while on Gabapentin and Anafranil and I went off the Gabapentin in May of this year and now I am a basket case. I feel worse every day, with only moments of clarity in between but I know I will be well again, because I have done it before. PLease take heart everyone who feels hopeless, there is hope, you will be better, as will I :) I have to go back to see my Dr., I went up with the Anafranil and I hope it works within a week or it is back to the gaba??? I really don't want it in my system. Anyone here that has healed without drugs?? If so, what worked for you?

I have beat it without drugs and without seeing a doctor. Coming into the Lord has changed my life. To me I found DP/DR was just an illusion that my mind made real.

I have it off and on for 3 years. I was living with it for almost a year really bad 24/7 and one morning I woke up and it was gone.

I changed my way of thinking. For months I couldnt even think, I didnt know to listen to what I was thinking or not becaues I didnt know that it was me talking/thinking. But after while I started to gain a little control of myself, with the little control I had I used it to the best of my ability.

Slowly but surely I got a little more control every so often. Finally I relized that this was all an illusion and that I made it through heavy anxiety and depression.

Boy it was hard! Beyond words... But God gave me the strength to go through it. I know it can come back at anytime, but I'm not thinking about it all the time because if you do it will come back. I keep telling myself that I'm fine, that i'm not sick and I doing a lot better now...I can say i'm cured. :D

Hi! Thank you so much for your reply, it means a lot to me, right now, I need all the reassurance I can get! I am also very spiritual and believe in a higher power and that helps. I wish I would wake-up healed too some day, and everyone who suffers too. Thanks
