Hey guys, first time poster here. Just found this place. If it will be good or not to hang around here and fixate on my DP/DR, I don't know, but it's certainly nice to know I'm not the only one going through it. I've read a few posts and see that many of you mention going to work etc. Personally, I ended up quitting work and dropping out of University, due to my condition, as I couldn't and still struggle to manage being away from my own home/ comfort and away from my ways of distracting myself. How do those of you that hold down a job or other commitments manage to do so, without fear of having an episode, or worse, deal with an episode when you're supposed to be at work, functioning and manage to stay somewhere that you know you cannot leave for the next 8 hours, no matter how you feel, even if you just NEED to escape to your home comforts. How do you cope? What are your strategies?
