Hi friend,

Fortunately I finished my last year of high school before my drug induced DP/DR took over, however I was taking online courses before that so I can offer some advice about it. It can be challenging because of how isolating and disciplined you have to be to work on it, its extremely easy to fall behind if you're not careful. You really have to make a schedule for yourself much like you'd have while attending a normal school such as waking up, break times, etc.. One of the best remedies for DP/DR is being with other people and socializing which public school offers. It's extremely difficult at first but from my own personal experiences I believe online might be worse for you at the moment. I completely understand why you want to though and that's a decision you have to make yourself.

It gets better, my DP/DR isn't nearly as bad as when I first got it but it's still there. Just maintain self care and stay positive, you'll get through this. I recommend exercising, eating well, surrounding yourself with loved ones, socializing and seeing a therapist. Self care is the key word here. Best of luck! We're all here for if you need anything.
