Hello all - thank you SO much for your stories. I finally broke down last night and told the first person ever (my girlfriend) what I am suffering from. I cried for an hour...it was so scary, yet so great to tell someone. She has been so supportive. It's hard for people who don't have this to even comprehend what you are going through.

My experiences are: I don't recognize myself in the mirror, my voice sounds foreign (I hate hearing it), I feel cardboard-like (like sometimes I lost my soul), like I don't know who I am. Scared to live, scared to die.

I made an appointment with a psychiatrist who I hope can help. I was fine for years, and now the DP is back with a vengeance. I take 10mg of Paxil every day, which does nothing for me. Ativan to sleep sometimes.

Am I crazy? Words of encouragement would really help. This disorder is almost like you are "too sane". I have scared myself of myself.
