ther eis 2 dp units that are not ignorant of this illness, a London and New York.

Unfortunately, there is no proven medication for dpd, as they use to tell me. Except some great improvment on Anafranil, or Lamictal with a ssri. But Lamictal seem a potent med, so I think many of us are scared to try it (me included). Sometimes I say to myself : I have nothing to loose, other times I say : what if???

theres two untis dedicated to dp agreed,but why i get so mad is for the fact that 13 years ago when i first went to the doctors and explained how i was feeling i was told 'its just anxiety'
now if i had been told it was something called dp disorder and if i was handed a little information on what the symptoms are then i wouldnt have made myself even more ill by thinking that i was going bonkers....

i recall my first ever quote to the doctor when explainning my condition

'it feels as though im looking at the world from behind myself and through a camera'

dont worry its just anxiety and you are a little unbalanced at the moment,was the reply i had,then every visit to the docs afterwards i was told the same thing 'its just anxiety'

dont look back into the past people tell me,but when something as simple as a leaflet describing what anxiety can cause to a human being etc....is all it would have taken to save years of distress for me ....then i feel very very angry and bitter

Hi,

Im just curious what makes you think that your dp is anything more than a product of anxiety? Are you ever COMPLETELY calm and relaxed and yet the dp remains? Do you feel you have a disorder besides your anxiety problems?

Yeah...anxiety is not a factor for me...it doesnt help but it aint responsable for my DP/DR.

As for me, i was 'given' DR & HPPD from drugs and from this anxiety, DP was formed. I believe it DP was the product of anxiety + DR. I've had anxiety pre-disorder, but nothing compared to this.

I think wether a person has heightened anxiety due to the dp/dr, its still anxiety thats the true core of the problem...but what the hell do I know.

This pissed me off- some doctors can't handle what they don't know about so they shrug it off...'its anxiety...' bollox...I mean, ok, anxiety is a component of it but depends on the individual...My GP knew i'd taken drugs and just still shrugged it off...shoved me on a nasty ssri and i bet you, that there's someone out there..some poor soul whose sufferin from dp/dr and is being told that stupid A word
