Hi guys

I have been starting to recovery recently, its been pretty much a year and a half feeling dp/dr (mostly dr) constantly 24/7 i will probably make recovery story/video once i hopefully fully recover,anyway since ive been recovering i have been really big emotional outbursts like sometimes so depressed then suddenly im so happy like sometimes i cant talk during these outbursts, its weird everything has come as a shock obviously because i havent felt in feeling of reality in a while but i wasn't expecting these emotions, has anyone else had this?

P.S ive pretty much been Numb of feelings since the beginning until like 2-3 months ago where my feelings have slowly been coming back but off and on until now.

I think it's pretty common for people to experience this when they are coming out of a dissociated state, and I guess it's to be expected when there was likely to be underlying emotional issues that caused the dissociation to begin with. It might just be you need a period of adjustment to get used to feeling again, but it might also be helpful to see a therapist to help work through them.

Human emotions are totally normal. Honestly, I don't necessarily get the "numb" feeling that most people in DP/DR get. My emotions can range drastically from one day to another. I have moments when I'm severely depressed and can't do anything but break down and cry. I also have angry outbursts and just feel very pissed off, for lack of a better word. For me, and it could be for you too, we're living with such severe anxiety that it's almost normal to be angry/depressed.

I liken it to an abused dog. Abused dogs often have anger/depression issues. They are so beaten down and live in such anxiety of their abuser that they just become angry/depressed because of their circumstances. In a way, we're all beaten dogs and anxiety is our abuser. Anxiety from DP/DR and other mental health issues have beaten us all to a pulp and for me, it's left me feeling bitter, depressed and generally pissed off. Many times, we're all a bit bitter...like, why is this happening to me?! I think once we're all able to get out of this anxious state fully, we will be able to relax and enjoy life and not be so damned bitter or depressed.

I actually have a nutritionist that comes to visit my family every now and then to drop off natural supplements we buy off home, can be pretty expensive stuff, anyway i i told him whats up with me and he suggested me to the this old guy who is retired by still works from home to help people, he basically is a naturopath and does natural chinese medicine, anyway he has this machine that not alot of people use anymore, its called a "Vegatest 2" machine and it basically detects whats going wrong in my body and what im deficient in, anyway it did come up with alot of stuff and based of what he did on me he made my medicine and ive been taking it and its slowly been working i guess im 100% but i notice a feeling and its hard to explain, he also told me to get Folic acid, vitamin b12 and C from a chemist.
