Hello. I just want tao share my dp experience which started out of nowhere suddenlyl when i went to skiing resort. While i was walking around, itwas as if my brain felt a sensation or experience of being disoriented and unreal and my brain decided to stay on that condition. I couldnt control it or figure my way out of it coz i also couldnt think.

It happened to me too when i was 18yrs old. I was dieting then, not eating much carbs and when my dp happened again 6 weeks ago, i was also trying to diet. My diet was trying to eat in very small portions from morning til evening 1 cup of rice in total. I would eat a full dinner. Days before my dp started, i was also heavily walking around 4 to 5 hours a day.

When my dp started, i stopped all dieting because i figured it cannot be coincidence that both my dp experience happened while i was dieting. I sweared off dieting and began eating normally ' moderate amounts of breakfast, lunch and dinner, consisting of 20 to 30grams clean carbs such as rice every meal and 30 grams steamed fish protein once a day and made sure that i dont sleep hungry. Id eat at least 10grams carbs worth of rice before bedtime if im feeling hypo.

Overall, the first 4 weeks saw some improvements after sticking to a sound diet. At least i could remember back details of my past and just had that feeling of unreality and unclear thinking hovering me.

About 2 weeks ago, I felt that my recovery progressed slowly so i decided maybe it will benefit if i eat some extra virgin californian olive oil around 1 to 2 tbsp per day. i could feel it helped immediately but i was still not satisfied with my recovery. So 1 week ago, i decided il include more vegetables coz i dont eat veggies. i consumed 1 package or 340 grams of spinach which i boiled in miso soup for a span of 4 days. Eversince i did that, i actually saw a big leap in my recovery. I began to remember more of my past and made more sense of my life. I could converse with relatives and friends and feel like it was the good old days.

DP is really terrifying. It made my feel my life was over and messed up. But i just hold on to my memories, pictures of my loved ones, and entered into some sort of meditation daily where i tried to make sense of my life. I figured that if one is stressed out, our mind can forget our past that is important to us. So i just tried to remember what it was like to live as a child, as a teenager, as an young adult.

Most importantly, I tried to stick to a clean diet ' no fried foods, no baked dishes. I just ate steamed or boiled foods, with only fish as protein. the only clean carbs i ate was rice 100 to 120 grams a day for a 130lbs frame. I feel that i am 70% recovered. I believe if u work on a proper diet that gives you much energy, you will slowly recover.

Goodluck to you all. I hope i would be able to help you in anyway.
