It's been a long time. What's new in the world of DR? Any new ideas or treatments? For those that don't know, I'm in my 40's and have had DR now for almost 20 years. I was doing a lot better for a while, but am lately experiencing much worse symptoms. I am on no meds. I returned here because it always felt like a more serious/mature crowd. Reddit, FB groups, and so on seem to be full of 15 year olds with "the cure" and people recommending to smoke weed.

Current symptoms-

- Severe DR

- Visual symptoms (color contrast looking wrong, changing light levels triggering worse DR especially going from bright to dark, seeing shadows move around the room in the dark, visual snow, seeing tracers, visual vertigo)

- Feeling hopeless (only due to DR)

- Flat emotions, no sense of ambiance to any setting, I seem to no longer have any emotions attached to strongly held personal beliefs when my symptoms are bad

- Mild vertigo all the time

- Sometimes having confusing thoughts / feeling not in control of my thoughts (this may be the most terrifying)

- Probably something I forgot to mention

Hi, I really feel that too. You worded that so perfectly, i didnt even know some of that could even be communicated such as the no ambiance to settings. Wasnt even sure anyone else ever felt that but me.

Welcome back man! My DP Symptoms have gotten worse lately to, I’m only 16, but i’ve had this for 2 years so far. I definitely don’t have a cure like those 15 year olds you were talking about, but If you ever need a young friend i’m here for you. I don’t really like talking to people about my DP, because you know how’d it turn out talking to someone about your “Depersonalization”.Literally nobody know’s what out disorder is, but i’m glad they don’t. Anyways hmu if you ever need anything <3.
