I did this too...and eventually a bit more of "reality" started coming back to me. I've def changed because of DP and everything I have tried and coped with. It's a life-changing experience and I'm glad to say I have gone through the many storms and come out alright.
I'm starting to see improvements these last weeks. Everyday a little bit of "me" is coming back although I was always there to begin with.
I stopped OCD'ing over it. Soon my anxiety lessened, stress lessened, and I stoppeed giving a fuck about many things that I now consier trivial and a waste of time for me.
I've come to understand myself, my triggers, my weaknesses, and come to realize my mortality and that better or worse, I can't be sitting at home pondering existence -- I gotta live.
I wish you the best and if yuo need any tips and/or otc supplements/drugs that will help DP, let me know. I've tried a few things and have tons of other treatment "options".
Ha! I sound like a doctor but a little disclaimer, just in case, I'm not!
For starters what really helped me was Inositol. I started in small doses of 500 mg but eventually increased it to anywhere between 5-8 grams.
There no side-effects that I know of that can cause permanent damage. The only thing I read was something about irritating the bowels, but this is if you were to take like a massive amount of it a few times a day.
There are a great many benefits to this substance look it up. It eases anxiety, induces better sleep at night and just calms you down lol.
Then I have Magnesium Taurate by a brand called Cardiovascular Research Ltd.
Next up is L-theanine.
I interchanged them along with other stuff BUT if you wanted to know more just p.m me. Too much to write here
