Having this disorder for 10 years was worse than my best friend killing himself.
I relate very much. Now I am doing better, but in general I would make a similar comparison. I lost my best friend in a car accident, I cried for a month, I took a year to recover and still it wasn't as bad as my DPDR. And I hate it that so few people understand. A (ex)friend of mine, who even studied psychology, told me bluntly that I don't have anything, I just read the symptoms somewhere online and thought I had it.

Wow I relate to that so much. I mean I would say your situation might've been worse considering your friend actually studied psychology and didn't understand, but I mean in my opinion that's on him for being pretty insensitive towards you. But I keep telling my parents and friends that this thing I feel is 100% dpdr, every single symptom is spot on. Their response is always "your such a hypochondriac" or "everything you read on the internet doesn't apply to you". It sucks having people constantly undermine your feelings, when in reality they have no idea what I'm going through. Glad this forum exists so you don't feel as lonely.
