I feel so nearly normal, so nearly nearly there. Have had DP for 14 weeks, have been getting lifts that have been slowly, very slowly starting to connect me to my sense of self and identity again.

I would say now I feel quite normal, anxiety/panic is now low, the only symptom I have left is the clammy hands. I am hoping over the next few days the DP will finally say goodnight and good riddance. This is the longest I have ever had it, all other times have been 4-7 weeks, this has been the longest it has seemed to go on forever. I only ever get panic/anxiety when I am DP, because I am not connected to my identity and sense of self and that is what gives me the anxiety/panic. Once I am completely connected again - I will be home and dry.

Keep your fingers crossed for me, I would like to be able to report back in a few days time that the DP has gone.

Best wishes to you! But unless you address the root cause, it's likely to return and be even worse. You have indicated that it's gotten progressively longer and longer each time. You have your whole life to live; don't be deluded into thinking you're in the clear. I don't mean to be rude or cruel, but just to suggest that you cannot pretend life is suddenly rosy and that you are not perpetually in danger. We all are; we need to deal with the root causes and develop strategies to avoid the plunge if we can.

Oh I agree, I have come out of DP this time, I am having CBT with a therapist, because we have got to try and stop the triggers from going that put me into DP, which is overwhelming anxiety/trauma, so yes there is still work to be done, even though I now feel normal. When something bad/traumatic happens, this is where the work has to be done from stopping the DP from triggering off. So yes I agree with you, I feel normal now, but there is still work to be done....

not quite, I am getting really bad anxiety attacks and for some reason I am finding it difficult to do things, I had to photocopy something here at work and I suddenly became anxious and thought I can't do it and panicked???? I don't what this is, but I feel all anxious and nervous, like it is a mild depression or something, the DP is definitely going, but I don't feel right???

Help
