Is recovery possible from dpdr?

Any recovery stories from someone who has had severe dpdr and maybe similar symptoms as me? I feel like I’m at rock bottom and could really use some hope. Lately my dpdr is so bad I literally think I’m going crazy. I feel completely out of touch with reality. Everything I do feels like a blur. I have no sense of self and don’t even feel like a person. I panic and or have anxiety almost all the time. I’m really depressed from it all and have lots of intrusive suicidal thoughts. I think I have them because I don’t want to struggle and be tortured constantly, it’s not that I really wanna die. My biggest fear is that I’ll loose control and do something stupid to me or others around me. I constantly obsess about it all. I don’t honestly see a way out and I’m very scared. How can I ever feel good, normal or happy again? Feels impossible.

I suffer for like 6 years of dp/dr and I can surely tell you that you won't get crazy. It's just a coping mechanism for your fears and depression unless you have a trauma. If there's no trauma, I guarantee that you will get better either with meds or on your own. Find a way to fight the triggers that cause your dp/dr which are mostly fears. But I guarantee that it's impossible to loose your control, since you know who you are and you respond and you will respond even if you get insanely crazy. The only bad thing you can do is worsen dp and gain more and more fears by feeding them. Nothing else. Trust me, and also believe me, you know who you are. If I show a picture of you and someone else you will surely show me who you are. These are just fears, I know it's a hard way to follow for cure, but you need to accept your condition.
