Any tricks appreciated.

When you become into this dp/dr land, and you begin to have no memory of your recent past actions, and feel like you will make a full-blown panic attack and feel like you have no past and no future because you don't know who you are *i.e. when you suffer greatly from dp/dr, do you have any tricks to settle you down a bit? (rapid stuff to calm down)? My major problem is public spaces, and I don't have any tricks who works. I wonder if having pictures of your loved ones help, or repeating you name, or stuff like that.

I count. In my head obviously if it's a public place. Sounds really stupid and basket-casey, but works for me. And tell yourself that by the time you get to 50 you'll feel noticably more normal, and you generally do. Or I do. The other thing I do that helps is focus on the shape of things about me. Like the width of a pavement, height of other people, reaffirm that it is all there in a really simple way, keep a vague model in my mind and believe in it.
