I want to start by saying to everyone with DPD that I’m so sorry you all are dealing with this. My son has been suffering with chronic constant DPD for at least 8 months. It just gets worse and worse. He is so afraid that he has lost himself forever. Yesterday he told me he wanted to die. He doesn’t feel that way today, but I’m so afraid for him. It’s so hard to see him suffer like this. I cannot imagine how horrible it must be for him and all of you. We have just found a new psychologist who is going to do a lot of testing, but all that will take time and I want to find all possible ways others have been helped. Would it be okay for me, a family member, to participate in this forum to look for any way I might help my son? Maybe some day, when he is better, he’ll come here himself.
