I'm starting meds in about a week when I visit my doctor.ive gotten to the point where I don't do anything but sit here and stare at my same four walls.

Did any specific meds help anyone with dpdr?

Any other advice on getting past this I just want my life back....

I have severe anxiety and depression prior to dpdr. It's just worsened since experiencing the dpdr so I'm hoping the meds give me some type of motivation or hope to get out of this.

I've been told that it's a mind thing a trauma response due to high anxiety. I've never had it before to this extreme so I'm hoping having the anxiety can down that it'll start to go away.

Yes it was I've only had it for two months I feel terrible coming on here because I've seen people that have it for years.im sure I sound like a cry baby.

Yes mine come on do to extreme anxiety stress and trauma.it hit me out if the blue in the last week of November I just woke up different,lost,confused,no sense of self. I immediately went to a therapist specialized for trauma and said it was dissociation or the actual term as she said depersonalization/derealization.they said it will pass once I no longer feel in threat with life mentally but that's harder than I expected.everyday seems to be something new whether it's something changing in my life or in general a new feeling out thought from dpdr. I've tried grounding techniques relaxing I've gotten to the point now where I've isolated myself every loud noise makes me jump. Every new feeling makes me think I'm doing or in the way to insanity. Some days I sleep for hours other days I stay wide awake in fear for what's next.
I've cut all sugar out of my diet,I've tried plant based diet I've tried getting up and ignoring the feeling and just dealing with it.it just seems to get worse

I have and it goes away for a few hours when I keep busy but when I relax it comes right back. It also seems that when I throw my routine off it gets worse as well.
