Hi I'm 14 and have dp or dr I don't really know, I've had it for about 2 months now and I got it from and anxiety attack, when I go outside to hang with friends and skate I have to wear sunglasses, when I skate it goes away and I dont notice it. I've noticed I don't really have any anxiety or anything but my dp is still there what do I do.

Distraction is great, least you get some relief.

Check out 'holy grail of dp' good solid advice, way to young for medication and hopefully doing the right things this will just fade. One thing I know to be true, i've got my anxiety to very low, so low it tricks me to believing it's not there, either that or I am more 'numb', might be the case for you, it's there in the background. Hopefully distraction, doing the right things, it will fade. 2 months is very early anyway, keep going, keep lowering anxiety and be good to yourself

I remember that thread, wasn't it pinned in the recovery section for years? Seems to have been unpinned. I'll pin it back up if people want me to.

Yeah thought it was, easy to find, but a pin would be nice, it was for a while. Solid advice. The way out isn't linear, or always some pattern, but at 14, I think there is more chance that that type of thread will help you find the way out, if not it sure is a good solid coping mechanism, I doubt many could argue against that.

I've realised that a lot of people at a young age have a bout of DP, the more I explain it to friends, the more went through it. If it sticks a little longer, try a different tactic. Just my thoughts. Looking back though I had DP around 14 and it passed with no panic or anxiety. The key was basically what was said in that thread I just didn't know I was doing it.

This time it's different, but who says it's not just a little stronger and takes more time or a stronger approach
