Depersonalization is pretty much the trickiest demon one could ever possibly deal with in my opinion. But that being said, it's still just one big mess, wrapped up in 1 single thing. It's 1 obstacle that stands in your way. I guess you could call this the silver lining. Every thought you have from this point on, every action you take, will essentially make it better or worse. It will lie to you and tell you no matter what you do, that is the wrong action. No matter where you are now, you are knee deep in it's mess. That is simply not true. That is just a thought or feeling you are experiencing in the present moment, which can be influenced and changed at the snap of your fingers. That's one of its greatest strengths, it tells you a lie and you believe almost every time. It's important to keep that in mind. Recovery really is distraction and take 1 step in front of the other. Get out of bed, make dinner everyday, do your chores, and keep making progress over time. This and patience! We can't just do things and wait to get better though, we have to practice it! Like a sport. Practice getting yourself grounded again, getting your energy levels back up, making yourself laugh and smile somehow. The beauty is, the rules and the opponent never changes! We just have to practice popping back up, and then finding effective ways to knock it down again! Our opponent DP uses the same dirty tricks over, and over, and over again. We have to get better at adapting to defeat it!
