Without writing a long winded post, I wanted to explain my situation and see if anyone can relate/help. Long story short, I’m experiencing my second bout of DP/DR. The first time came and went within a year and a half and I’m not sure I fully “cured” but I was at a point where existence was possible and I was back “in” life, comfortably. Now that I’m experiencing it again, I’m worried that if it does subside I will get back even less of my existence than I had before this recent episode. In otherwords, does each DP episode chop away a little bit of my inner self each time? Or is it just a phenomenon?
