Tianeptine is curing me!

I've had dp for 10 years hardcore. I had grey hair by the time I was 25. I'm now 27. I'm walking on a trail as I write this on my phone. I read about tianeptine a couple weeks back on a nootropics board on reddit. I've tried every any depressant under the sun and nothing has ever touched the worst symptom derealization. This past few months I was planning suicide a lot. It's just been too long with no joy or hope of getting better and being completely alone, agoraphobic and out of my mind completely.
I bought the sodium first, tianeptine sodium. It worked for anxiety but it's action is short and it's not really medicinal. Then I got the sulfate and bam... things feel real. My heart doesn't feel broke. And what was a living nightmare seems like another person. I'm really thrilled about this and I hope for the love of god some of you stubborn fucks give it a try. Much love,

I've never heard of it. What is it? I rarely find anyone here going to a therapist who will help with the anxiety causing my DP.

There are various therapies to work on the way of thinking that made DP come about. Even though mines' chronic it can be lived with and anxiety lessened if I become less anxious and work on how to handle it. Does anyone do Acceptance and commitment therapy which includes acceptance of the problem along with mindful meditation? Even my psychiatrist advised meditation. He's been to many seminars about how it grows new neurons and stops your overthinking. Has anyone here done ACT?
I wouldn't use any more pharmaceuticals until they were proven to help in a study. I have generalized anxiety disorder and usually the way anxious people think and obsess about their thoughts lead them to DP. These drugs won't change these thinking patterns. There's no magic pill for DP. If it begins from thought patterns coming from your early childhood therapy in changing that would help. What types of therapy have you all tried? I'm in my early 60s and finally getting some help. I used to think there was some magic pill also. That's nonsense.
