Do you ever get existential thoughts? Like wondering if life is really real? I'm not getting many other symptoms as this point but I feel like I just can't get rid of those.

Yes. To be honest, that's what I thought of the most. Just tell yourself life is definitely real and accept it. :) it's tough, but with time, that will be in your mind rather than questioning it :)

Im sure you've gotten tons of questions.

I experience DP/DR in only high stress situations now. and i used to experience it all day, if not the majority of most days.

However, lately when i wake up, for about 20 minutes ill feel dead. and in a foggy disoriented way too. not "Dead tired" just ....almost like my brain is struggling to sputter to life from having slept. i'll have strange dream like thoughts. . its frightening and ill feel completely DR'ed for a while

have you experienced that?

Oh yes definitely. Moments where I would wake up really dpd and stay that way. Or wake up fine until I get out of bed, then I'm dpd. Or I would just always have it. Heck, I even had dreams where I was dpd. It never left. But that fades away too, don't worry :)

OP, how do you get brain mapping done? who does it? I cannot find a psychologist who does it, and I would like it to be covered under my insurance, Anthem Blue Cross PPO?

Your post is very inspirational. I am working to try to free myself from symptoms. It's not easy. I spend my session crying in therapy. Today I'm taking a break, which I don't know is good or bad. But sometimes the cycling makes it hard.
Thank you for your honest report. I relate to your symptoms. I hope to relate to your recovery.

Do you still have the feeling of having seen something that cant be unseen? With the fear of never knowing when / if it Will come back?

It was actually recommended to me to try it by my boyfriend's uncle. He works at a clinic and the doctor is a surgeon/specialist for brain, nose, and throat. And I'm not sure about the insurance, because I did it without insurance. Won't hurt to ask if you find one around you :)

It's okay to cry in sessions :) it's great that you're letting your emotions out! I always tend to keep mine in. But if you can, you should go :) I had to stop going because money. You'll get better soon! :)

I know it sucks, love.. Trust me... I cried myself to sleep for 2 years.. And I know it seems like yours is the worst one than everyone else's, but it's not. There are a Lott of people who go through what you do. I mean, I was one of them. I thought the same. I thought no one had it as bad as I did. But look at me now!! And soon, you'll be the same way!! :) I promise! Don't focus on how you feel or think about the future. Focus on the now! :) as soon as you start thinking bad, give someone a call! But don't talk about how you feel because then you're just feeding it. Just have a normal, funny conversation :) stay positive!!

Hey Cynthia :)

My name is Heather, Ive been experiencing DP/DP for a month now. Im taking is very hard right now, Im always in a state of panic/anxiety. I actually had DP/DP a couple of years ago and over came it. Im having a lot of doubt that I will again. I had some hope a few days ago but that quickly diminished. I have a very over active mind and whenever I have a symptom I automatically come to this site and read forums for HOURS , like its literally all I do now. I now so have more DR than DP, like I literally feel NO connection to anything or anyone. Like when I look at things its like they dont register to my mind correctly. Like right now I could look at my tv, I know its there but it doesnt feel like it is. I feel a million miles away from everything and everyone. Or like when I shower, I know the water is hot but I dont feel it. Right before I got in to this again I ahd ALOT of stress, anxiety and depression. My boyfriend had just recently moved away, I was sick and my very good friend passed away. What should I do? I have nothing going on in my life, even when I do I feel like I never actually experienced it. All my feiends are busy until late at night (which messes up my sleeping very much) Im not in school anymore ( graduated high school ), WAS looking for a job before my DR got so bad. I feel like I dont exist at all, its so hard for me to look in to a mirror because it feels like I just look right through it. Im always waking up in a panic everyday, literally the second I wake up Im back in to DP/DR. I can honestly barely function . I was actually doing a lot better when I first got DO/DR, but my constant over thinking of it made my symptoms 10000x worse. I actually had hope before and kinda felt like I existed. But now....nothing. Please help. Should I stop coming to these websites and forums?
