The last month I seriously thought I was basically recovered. I felt somewhat happy, connected, and the weird thoughts were almost all gone. I was living life as normal as possible. I still had this weird lingering sensation but I thought with time it would go away too. Now I feel like it's all coming back again. All of a sudden I feel like I can't think properly, my memory sucks, and possibly brain fog is coming back and I feel a disconnect when I talk like I did when this first happened. I connected back then disconnected again ???????????? I feel so frustrated. I'm scared I'll never know normal again or be a normal happy functioning person after all this.

Keep pushing. I have these days all the time. We can't give up. I can't remember if you told me you take medication? I am going to see a new psychiatrist next week and I'm praying he can help because I can't believe I been like this for 6 months.

Well that's great you were recovering without meds... hopefully it will happen again! Or are you gonna try a medication?
Oh thanks! Yeah I'm glad I got as far as I did without meds. I think I'll keep trying the non med route. I'm pretty sensitive to meds and I think they'll make things worse. Thinking about trying acupuncture soon! They claim it's good for built up anxiety

I have tried so hard to manage this without medications but I honestly can't take it anymore. I can't fix the imbalance that's in my brain alone. Because there's obviously an imbalance. I can't handle these dissociative seizures/attacks,whatever people call them, anymore. They send the Dp/dr right back to square one. I need to try something to get out this hell

Time honestly... and honestly I still feel a bit that way. But time really helps. I'd say I've really tried to be distracted and still live my life and do things I like. Just trying to bring me back to myself. I also think EMDR therapy helped me too, I noticed I started recovering after 2nd session. Fake it till you make it has been my motto through all this. Hoping we all get back to ourselves!

Its the slight sensation of still being a little detached....It comes and goes in my own case....Unfortunately it has never left me completely after all these years...And just in case i start scaring everybody that has just been my own personal experience....EVERYBODY IS DIFFERENT....Just cos ive not recovered fully from this doesnt mean everybody else wont...
