Spending to much time on here

When I found this site I thought wow, this is what I have been suffering from for the past I dont know how many years. What I had been trying to explain to my GP and Family about how I was feeling (without success) was finally here in black and white.

I have now come to the conclusion that It's all to do with anxiety and stress. The DR kicks in when things get too much.

I started logging on everyday just to read the posts for any helpful advice on how to get rid off this thing (DR). I would like to say that a lot off the posts on here helped me, but some of them not so much. ( Like the ones that say "I've had DP/DR for 20 years etc" ). I hope I dont offend anyone, but some of you on here are trying to hard and are going way too deep. The solution I have found is not to look in to things too much. Stop obsessing and paying the dr/dp too much attention. This is certainly the key for me anyway. I have found lately that the less I visit the website the better I feel. Im not saying to leave the site completely, just return to it now and again for some reassurance etc. I have found that I am already getting closer to reality just by doing this and the dr is slowly unravelling itself from around me. The glass pane is cracking!!!

If this board is making your DP/DR worse, than you should take a step back indeed. I'm experiencing the same and I too should be wise and not come here so often. It is pretty weird (but also very logical!) that this board and the stories I read are helping me all the same. And I can imagine that the posts from people who suffer from DP/DR for 20 years or something aren't helpful for you, but you got to understand that not everyone is the same. Some cannot get past DP/DR for one reason or another. I for one suffer from DP/DR due to a traumatic childhood (I have a dissociative disorder, DID) and I don't think DP/DR will not go away (except with the help of meds which I am taking). Maybe there is a difference between trauma induced and drug induced DP/DR? Anyway, you should do the things which make you feel good and if that is comming her less often than you should do just that.
