Has anyone on this board ever done Ecstasy?

I have PTSD and DP disorder. I haven't been able to make any progress in regular therapy. I'm virtually completely cut off from my feelings. It's amazing, I had a momentary freedom from my dp and it was amazing how real and full of feeling life is supposed to be. I've had DP for as long as I can remember - right through much of my childhood. It's trauma related, In my strong Opinion.

Anyway, I'm now looking into doing MDMA-assisted psychotherapy. MDMA was the original Ecstasy, back in the 80s. Today all sorts of different drugs are sold as Ecstasy, some producing similar effects, some not.

If you're interested in it, I have yahoogroup for people with Complex_PTSD. I have a whole section in the links section on MDMA-assisted psychotherapy.

If you have done Ecstasy, how was it? How did it affect you dp? How did it affect your emotions?

If you want to talk about trauma, or trauma treatment, go ahead and bring it up.

Ectasy forces your neurons to dump a huge load of serotonin in one shot. In the process it damages the cells. It would probably work well in your therapy but you will end up with permanent damage to your serotogenic system. Your better off with an ssri.
Even tho I wouldnt recommend this drug, I know somebody who would come instantly out of dp/dr when he took X. It also took away his depression and anxiety. I think this definitely points to serotonin as the culprit in most of these cases. Unfortunatly over time the drug slowy stopped working and he ended up in a far worse situation.
