hello everyone, ive had symptoms of dp/dr for about 5 years now and they have got increasingly worse since i went to uni, ive seen something at one of those clinics she didnt know what the hell she was on about, and it kind of put me off. My dad read somewhere about l-glutamine, just wondering, anyone on here who has tried this, did you get a weird heaviness in your head not too long after taking the stuff, i feel as if i have just been born and im having to learn about people and my environment again, i dont feel fully here at all but more so than i usually do. i know its only an amino acid and not any sort of presciption medicine but it certainly seems to have done something. i really need to see someone about this as its really having an impact on every aspect of my "life" problem is im not too confident about seeing the doctor as im sure he'll refer me to someone who doesnt have a clue again.

I think (from my own experience) that most doctors are aware of Depersonalisation and Derealisation, as they are often symptoms of depression and anxiety, but I don't think a lot of them are aware of Depersonalisation Disorder itself, which is comparatively rare, or seems to be.

I still believe that Depersonalisation Disorder itself is where the initial trigger has passed, but the brain has someone got 'stuck' in the DP mode, for whatever reason. It may be some weird biochemical reason, psychological, or the event trigger itself may have something to do with it.

I passionately believe that your own 'approach', for wont of a better word, towards your problems is the key to the solution, or at least it might open the door a crack. Medication will not, or has not so far, been able to cure DP disorder. At best, it can stabalise you while you figure out how to get the hell out of the mess you're in.
