So, it’s been over 2 years I’ve made a post here! Been on and off of this forum/dealing with this for 5 years and I’m back. My DP/DR came back as a result of my anxiety just being at an all time high. Don’t know if this will apply for everyone, but what really helps me is trying to find the root of the issue.It took me a couple months to finally realize this feeling doesn’t just come out of no where. There were things deep rooted in me I had to deal with. It’s the hardest thing ever to do cause your mind won’t always make everything apparent. DP/DR is a petrifying and horrible feeling, but it’s your minds built in parachute to help you deal with these. Our minds deal with things differently sometimes. Which is fine, but you just have to work 10 times harder to try and figure these issues out and do your best to acknowledge and deal with them. Easier said than done of course, but this all takes time. I’ve been dealing with this since I was 15. I am now 20! It took me back to think I’m in a similar place that I was 5 years ago. Hopeless, anxious, depressed and feeling foggy headed at all times. I had to remind myself that I dealt with it then! I’ve conquered and done the things I wanted to do IN SPITE of this feeling. You just have to work up the courage to take that first step and get yourself going anything. Live your life and do the things you enjoy to do in spite of your feelings. It’s going to be a mighty difficult journey, but in the end you will find yourself feeling better. That’s not to say you’ll hit some bumps on the road.. It sucks and it makes you want to curl up and hide away. That’s okay. Just continue trying and don’t let yourself fall into a deeper state of this anxiety! I’ve found journaling to be of HUGE help. Write these feelings down. How do you feel emotionally, what does your dissociation feel like on that specific day, what do you enjoy doing, what are things that terrify you to do when you feel the DP/DR? There’s always going to be something out there that helps. Never lose hope people! Hope is the first step.
