Hi, um, this is my first post on this website, so I guess an introduction is a good starting point.

My name is Tess, I'm 14 and I hate DP/DR. I've been struggling with it for a while, at least a year or more. I don't really know where it started- last summer I had a falling out with my dad, and I don't talk to him much anymore (my parents are divorced) and we thought that's where it started. A "traumatic event". But I had some memories creep into my mind from the year prior about being DPed, and some even from a few years ago. I remember having it happen once or twice when I was maybe 8.

I don't really know how long I've had this, or what caused it, but I just want it to go away, you know? I don't know anyone else my age who has it so that's one thing I'm hoping to find. I'm currently seeing a psychotherapist who's not helping too terribly much. I don't have this 24/7, but slip into periods at a time. They vary in intensity from what we started called a 1, 2, 3, or 4. Often times I'll find myself at a 1 or 2 for the whole day, or long chunks of time.

Does it ever go away? I'm just a little scared, to be quite honest.
