I would like to make a postive post today and let all of the DPDR sufferers out there that you are going to get better. You are going to have to experience the hell you are going through now to experience the light at the end of the tunnel but I promise you that it only gets better from where you are at right now. I remember when I first experience DP back in November, when I was a senior in high school. Yes! This disorder can happen to adolescents. I didn't know what the hell was happening to me, but I knew that I thought that I was going crazy or was going to die because I felt like I couldn't control anything about myself. I felt like a stranger inside of my body ya da ya da ya da. DP is very common and the feeling is the exact same for everyone whether we like to admit it or not. Its horrifying when you don't know what it is. But when you understand and realize that there is nothing you can do besides waiting it out its like what the fuck. There is no magic cure like what I was looking for. It just doesn't exist yet, but what I can tell you is that you are going to be okay. Do everything that you did before DP took an effect on your life and don't be afraid to get help. I went on antidepressants for like a month until I started to feel the slightest bit better. I changed my diet and supplements also helped me. My anxiety made me see things that really weren't there like out of the corner of my eye. Just know that it can take several months for your body and brain to be like " Okay, DP is not the enemy it is just trying to protect me and give me a break from all of the stress and anxiety." It makes you feel foreign but it does go away. I can't really explain it, but you realize that you are getting better or don't have this symptom anymore. Just allow yourself time to heal, I promise.
