This is probably one of the most helpful post I've seen on here. I made an account instantly so I could reply. After I read this I basically snapped out of a cycle of anxious thoughts and started feeling better. My vision had been fixed for awhile but just a blurry dual. I realized this was a result of me constantly in a obbessive cycle of deep DP thinking just making me more anxious. I was basically zoned out and only thinking about what's wrong with me rather than living in the moment and noticing whats going on around me. Basically I was in a cycle of deep stressful and anxious thought 24/7 which was making me extremely fatigue. Another thing I did was equate every surreal moment to a result of my DP and that just made it more vicious, and had me thinking I was going crazy. I looked up programs and did tons of research and looked up cures. My problem was as soon as a cure didn't work it just made me more anxious and stressed out. Also I let the amount of time people had DP discourage me. I'd see like "10 years" and be like " Damn, I can't bear with this for 10 years." In my opinion I think people saying their amount of time with DP only discourages people a lot. If its a short period of time than a person may think " why is mine not gone yet?" If its a long period of time a person might think "I might have this shit for that long?" So I won't even announce how long I had mine for. I was afraid to awake and rather stay asleep because I was scared to face DP. My main mistake was over analyzing. I wake up over analyzing my room to see if everything is back to normal. I would analyze so hard then have a lying thought telling me something is not right. This then scared me into thinking the thought was true and made me even more anxious. I was bound to my bed and was confused that the feeling of boredom was the feeling of DP. This had me depressed. I started over analyzing my emotions, like why don't I feel a sense if accomplishment when it was just my anxiety in the way of my feelings. I could go on for so much more but I don't want to make this post too long. Anyways thank you, because lliterally after reading this post today I began to feel good like "damn it all makes sense now". I had thoughts of "when is this going to go away" rather then the thought of "what's the worst that can happen anyways honestly." It may feel like you can't or don't want to do things but honestly there's nothing holding you back but thoughts. This is when I just had the realization of "this is foolish how can I let thoughts hold me back from living life." Edit: The analogy I used is to someone who thinks they're allergic to something. For example if someone feels they ate something they believe they are allergic to they might start panicking and believe they are feeling the results of an allergic reaction. Like "oh my god my throat is closing up, what do I do?, when in reality it's just they're thoughts convincing them things are there that really aren't. Basically DP is a placebo within itself. The whole time I believed I was experiencing DP it was just depression, anxiety and boredom.
