I'm curious to see what ages is DP most found in. I've read many times that it usually occurs around 16 and wears off at 20, but I haven't seen that on this site much.

23 and have had it since I was around 16. Its gotten a lot better now, I used to barely be able to leave my house. I've noticed with a lot of people, once the anxiety dies down a bit, it becomes easier to live and rid yourself of DP.

as for the age thing - I'm not sure thats entirely true. Its totally dependent on the person.

14, so I am basically a fetus compared to other users but that is fine with me!

I've been asked the question a hundred times now at least. I always give a random answer that's within 2 years of my actual age on either side so npbody knows my real age. It's just one of those things. It's a DPSH mystery like why Alan's such a dick or where all Jeff's hair went.

Ironically, those are the only two guys who know my real age so I probably shouldn't be ragging on them. :p

Aw. You guys are young. But welcome. :)

We had another 14-year-old called Emily who used to come on chat all the time. I don't think I've seen her for ages.. I hope she's alright.

Anyway, we span all the ages on here!
Well, yeah we are young.
Although I consider myself smarter than the average 14 year old, ahah.

This poll would only answer that question for those that use the forum and have answered the poll. There was a point in time none of us knew what to call this or that it had a name or that there was a forum and many of the older generation doesn't use technology. I find no reason to believe it doesn't span every age, and depending on the reason how long it lasts and when it happens are different.

I'm 19, and have been experiencing it since I started high school at 14. School stressed me out beyond belief, my peers outcasted me, my social anxiety was at an all time high, and along with all of that, I had to go home and deal with my drug addict mom who passed away from an overdose during my sophmore year. Not looking for pity; I'm just reflecting. Sorry for oversharing, but looking back on all of that, it's no wonder why I'm so messed up. I really don't know how I'm still here.
