Hi Abe my name is Tris, I too am having a hard time really confusing in someone about my DP as well. I do my best to explain it to my SO, but I find that it’s really hard for anyone that isn’t experiencing it to really understand. I just found out about my condition a couple of weeks ago. The first time I had a symptom is when I was at my new job. I was walking and suddenly felt detached to not only myself but everything around me. It gets really intense at times but I know together we can all overcome this battle we all are facing with DP. Feel free to confide in me or anyone else anytime you need to.
