Hi I'm new.

I'm 15 and I've had depersonalization for 3 years. It's constant and seems to be getting worse all the time. I'm still not entirely sure why it started, it may have been because in the months before there was a lot I was thinking about that I wasn't talking about with anyone. My brain might have just been overwhelmed...?? I'm not sure if that's a reason for dp to start. I had a panic attack that seemed to come out of nowhere and the depersonalization started and it hasn't gone away since. I've been seeing a therapist but she doesn't know exactly how to help me. She's been having me do mindfulness exercises but that hasn't done anything. I also took zoloft for a while and that didn't help either. I always feel so confused, scared and disconnected from myself. I'm at a point now where I know how to go on with my life, sort of ignoring the dp and thinking about other things, but it still never goes away. I feel like it's never going to go away and that scares me even more because it's so confusing and terrible. I've tried a lot of different things and nothing seems to help so far.

I'd really love to be able to talk with someone about this who understands what depersonalization feels like.
