I've had DP/DR for 18 months now, triggered by a marijuana panic attack last year. My DP/DR has gotten better over time but it's still lingering around and I'm SICK OF IT. My soul is tired.

What I'm doing now to help myself survive (I'm often suicidal):

- Taking meds (Trintellix, Cymbalta, Rexulti, Seroquel, Seroquel XR, Klonopin)

- Attending DBT Group Therapy once weekly

- Attending a Psychosocial Rehab Center 1 to 2 times weekly

- Attending Individual Therapy weekly

- Talking to my case manager

- Seeing a Psychiatrist

I also get a weekly med box filled for me by my clinic because I ODed on Klonopin recently. So they hold my meds for me to keep me safe and give me the weekly prefilled pill box.

I don't know what else to do at this point. I feel spaced out and drugged up all the time.

Do you go outside and socialize? Hang out with friends even tho it feels horrific? Do you have a job? I'm asking because 16 years ago I got Dp/dr from weed and recovered without medication. My family thought I was going back shit crazy. I couldn't leave my house and I had to quit my job because the lights were triggering attacks since it looked like a I was in a dream. I suffered for way over a year and then I said fuck it. I went away to my cousins house and distracted myself with her. She also had to take me multiple times to the Er. Then I decided to go back home and I said to myself "if I have to live like this then fucked it" I started hanging out with my friends everyday (even tho it felt like a nightmare) got my job back and pretty much just forced myself to enter reality. And I slowly recovered but it took a while. Just don't give up and try everything possible even if you have to force yourself and fight with your body and brain. I have it now 16 years later and I can function well but this time I am on medications since this cama again out of nowhere. I believe I triggered it by thinking about that night 16 years ago but who knows. Good luck!

I don't have any friends sadly. But I'm trying to be more social by going to the group meetings and the psychosocial rehab center. It's supposed to help you become more social I guess. I have a hard time because of social anxiety plus feeling drugged up all the time. Makes it hard to care about anything, ya know?

And the medication is not helping at all with the social anxiety!!???
