hey, i was just curious, how common is DP?

on some sites i've heard that it's fairly common, and on others i've heard it's rare.

does anyone know the statistics? like, is it every 1 in 20 people, or is it 1 in every 3 thousand people?

i was just curious.

I think everybody has the ability to dissociate. Its a primitive brain mechanism that we all have that becomes engaged during intolerable suffering...part of the flight or fight response. I believe like alot of experts, that its nothing more than a bi-product of anxiety and depression. Some here think its the other way around, but I disagree.
