I have had anxiety/stress 24/7 dp/dr for 2 months now. Im a 14 year old male. And today was my first day back at school. It was nice to see my friends. I felt happy for the first time in a while. And sometimes i wasnt even thinking about the dp/dr but definetly felt it.

Anyway. Ive always loved cars and especially motorcycles. Is it possible to drive with dp? I cant get my permit for another year. And will hopefully be out of this state by then but i am prepared for the worst. So does anyone drive with dp? Or ride motorcycles? I feel like the wind on your face on a motorcycle might help? But im no expert.

Some people experience difficulties driving, while others don't. It really comes down to how much you can handle, honestly.

At the peak of my depersonalization, I was able to drive. I couldn't do long distances, but it wasn't overly difficult for me to get around to where I needed to go.

I would say, grab that permit next year and just give it a shot. Who knows, driving might actually be a really nice escape for you! :)
