. Heather, the best thing you can do is read some of these recovery stories, print out your favorite ones and move on. Once u get the info u need to recover there isnt much need for this website.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?
