Hi I am new here but not new to dp. I joined this a few days ago for support and what I could offer and also receive. It is nice to not be alone. To spaceplex I wanted to say keep re-reading what assuring things ppl have said and deep breathe. I am sober now also and remember very well the withdrawl and dp kicked in big time. Trust me that duz pass. You are on the right road. I also was convinced of schiz, and my Mom was paranoid schiz! So I was SURE I had it, but I don't. I don't think u do either. Hope u can get a therapist and a support group about the sobriety part. Sending calm thoughts everybody's way. Thanks for all being here and so honest. It definitely feels like hell no denying that. I just did the damn dishes while I felt like I was going over the %^$^^ing edge, and here I am now able to put sentences together 20 minutes later. Think this: I was not brought this far to be dropped on my head, I am not a freak and not alone. I will feel and do better for myself. Keep breathing.
