DP is body related, it's the perception of the self and physical self that is altered no ?
DR is more affecting the environnement, people, places and distortions of what you see and feel about it...
Thats what I thought...I'm 70% DP, 30% DR....
Never had DR before benzo (xanax) use.
I never had any considerable issues concerning my body...my DP/DR was all drug induced...
In reading your first sentance YES YES YES I have DP of my head & neck. You wrote it correctly, for once..
I feel like I could just reach up and move my hand straight through my head, like it's evaporated and my head & neck are missing. Like it's a hologram sitting on top of my shoulders. I've got my hand resting on my chin now, but I still feel that my neck and forehead could be "passed straight through" with my hand.
You "got" DR from Zanax? Wow, that was "helpful" for you then..
Your DP/DR was all drug induced.
Where's the relationship between "anxiety" disorder DP/DR and drug-induced DP/DR?
Why do some people experience it from trauma, and others from chemical manipulation?
Where's the "relationship" to it being from Anxiety in both cases?
I mean.. Janine first went into DP after just stepping outside to go to school one day.. I dont really know what caused it.
It's DEFINATELY a moment of "distraction" and sensory overload though.
Maybe "serotonin" "dopamine" and "glutamate" arn't the right chemical..
Maybe during drug use, and anxiety a certain brain chemical gets fired that goes into over-production and causes the DP/DR.. I want to use Naltrexone to help me out with my handful of draining immune system problems, but it's only "free" if you're an alcoholic.. I just have a "feeling" that switching OFF my endorphin/Adrenaline/Endogenous opiod receptors will "do" something.. I just have a feeling.
Although, I'm also the sort of person with SUCH "brain mush" that tablets breaking the blood brain barrier might kill me right now.
I'm also interested in "bio-feedback" a therapy that uses an EEG monitor to help you calm your brainwave response to life..
But I insulted all the bio-feedback providers I rang with my highly paranoid screaming.. They wont be helping out.
I like to "solve" puzzles. Which is why I hate stupid talk therapy and drugs that dont work (Neuroleptics, etc)
