Still getting better each day. I am a lot better than what I was this morning, I can really feel it going now, no anxiety or clammy hands, I am really starting to feel my sense of self and identity returning, still earl days, but I think within a few days to a week I should be great!!
Fingers crossed! Still lots of work to do though with my CBT, as this episode has lasted nearly 15 weeks, and I have had DP more times than I can remember, caused by overwhelming anxiety i.e. splitting up with an ex boyfriend, my cat being really ill and dying, falling pregnant and indecision and trauma. Once I am completely 100%, I am going to have to learn how to cope with anxiety and bad things better, because it is that overwhelming sadness or anxiety that causes the DP switch to click on in my head. Most of my previous episodes have lasted 4-7 weeks, this has been the longest at nearly 15 weeks. It has been hell, pure fear 24/7.
The big problem now is to remain well, I have got to stop this DP from kicking in everytime something bad or traumatic happens in my life??...
PS: My love and sympathy and best wishes to all of the people on this board that suffer with this dreadful dreadful illness.
