I have a question for those diagnosed with dpd;
Have you ever received inpatient treatment for it? Or done a clinic, maybe intensive outpatient care(i.e you go in everyday but don't stay overnight). If so, did it help or harm you?
I've done many inpatient and outpatient programs, but none specifically tailored to DP/DR. I doubt such programs exist. Rather, like many here, I was diagnosed with "depression" over and over again. This was also before i had even heard the term "depersonalization", I just had no clue what was happening to me. Needless to say, these programs were not helpful, and even somewhat harmful, in my view. Harmful because it made me more confused about my condition, made me feel guilty that I wasn't "getting better", and took time away from truly trying to get to the bottom of my problem.
