i dont want this post to sound like im whining or complaining because im not going to do that anymore. ive had severe dp/dr now for four years and over the past few months ive had a great change in disposition. im now ready to begin recovering and healing from all this crap. but my question is, how does one move on? how can we ever see things normally again after all of the crazy and unreal things we have experienced? i cant just forget about the past four years of my life, as much as i want to. i know how all of you feel and i know how completely insane and horrifying this experience is. how do we begin to recover after all of the self-induced trauma we've experienced? how can we ever forgive ourselves? i know that most of my dp was brought on by my own doing (drugs, etc.). how can one return to reality after seeing the horrible pits of unreality? again im not trying to be negative at all, i believe recovery is entirely possible, i just need some guidance. please if you have any ideas or comments feel free to post them.
