What dp symptoms are you experiencing? If they’re too scary or intense to share, you can DM me :) but what is helping you? I know there is no one cure, but just anything to try... I’m not on any medication so open to anything. Mine is from a panic attack which is crazy because I haven’t had one since I got dp last summer... some people have daily panic attacks and I just had one and end up like this... and I don’t want to hear live your life and ignore, I am living my life. I’m in grad school, I work, hang out with friends travel and etc, if that was the case I would be normal by now..

Hello that sucks youve been stuck with this feeling for a while now , im sure your still pretty anxious or desperate to alleviate this , its completely understandable, i also got this after one big fight with my mother , and been on benzo withdrawal, what i would suggest is you must look into your life , i know you are doing everything normaly, but you must be doing something a pattern that is keeping you in an anxiety loop, we all do this and to break it is incredibly hard, i wont suggest ad or anxiety meds, but if they work for you its the same as breaking this pattern , becuase its fixing your anxieties by drugging you, so you can take the two routes, i really suggest looking in your life, perhaps you are still obssesing with dp somehow and want everyday to get rid of it like we all do, maybe you search and stay on the groups long time , your still posting so i will suggest staying off the group, the only way out if your dp was caused by anxiety or panick attack is the same , every single recovery story says the same , let go, accept to the point your ok with this in your life stop researching, there is no other way out, if you think you have other problems go check yourself with a neurologist you may be one of the 2 % whos dp is chronic, there are lots of people here with that kind of dp but they are here because they belong here , but you and all the millions that have got dp and got out of it will follow the same process, until you see what pattern your still following you will heal , im sure also meds can be helpful if they relieve your anxiety you migut understand why you feel better with them, but its risky some people are conpletly fine and others cant tolerate them , so if you take them listen to your body

I honestly don't know what is causing me to continue to feel this way.. maybe I should see a neurologist to see what else is happening. I have seen couple Drs, psychiatrists and a therapist, they just say it's anxiety. The only thing which made some differences are cbd & magnesium, have been the most helpful out of all (maybe I should try them again in higher doses). I also tried eating healthy/exercising for months, all it did was make me lose weight & look sick. Luckily I gained most of it back. I don't think I have any other problems just like many people on here lol I just feel detached from myself..

I understand, you really remind me of my old self when i was first dealing with an anxiety disorder, i tried everything, every little thing and was stuck for a long time because indidnt udnerstand how our thoughts keeps us in an anxiety loop, if ee dont fix some of our thinking and daily habits , you must be young, being young can be alone stressfull figuring out life, getting your relationships in order , being succesfull, making adult choices , plus anxiety /depression can really make it seem like there is no escape , but i asure you there is and if you just stop obssesing and self monitoring you will be out of this, i know you hate people telling you its in you and just love life , and you are frustrated because thats ehat your doing! Well there is a difference between living an anxious life , and living a healthy life, i was 3 years with my first episode , i tried everything every single pill, neuros , therapists , holistic medicine, and i eas still stuck until one day i changed my habits compeltly and also my thinking habits and i was fine, im sure if you now go to a neuro your tests will be fine, just do it , but if you do it and they are ok , understand its not the dp its you , its your thinking patterns , you got this from anxiety and one panick attack your just stuck as it happens with everyone with an anxiety disorder, its the same with dp, people with general anxiety disorder also get stuck for years or months , some people just experience gad, and some peopel experience dp with it continiously, why dont you try something? Get off the forum for 6 months , dont research for a cure for 6 months, even if you feel it and you think its bad , dont obsses go on with life , just say ok its dp just part of anxiety and dont pay too much attention even though it can be consuming just sont feed it researching for hours , if this doesnt work then come back in 6 months and we can discuss if its neurological or something strange in your brain( wich im sure is not)

Also you are comparing yourself with other sufferers , what makes you think you are the same? Im sure some sufferers really struggle but most of them handle life, they had it from infancy , or they dont get super worried now , they are a minority , i can asure you , its the 2% of the millions who suffer it every year , you dont know others situations they might had very traumatic backgrounds , abusive , or heavy drug use they might still have horrible habits , have other mental problems, also why do you think everything you hear in the internet its true? Its so easy to create an avatar and rant , i dont doubt must sufferes struggle i do its a horrible experience , but this forums are horrible because they use the same words , nightmare , hell, torture, suicide, this words are so bad for someone who is already super sensitized wich is almost everyone in the forum, it just feeds your fear with inaginary stories your making of how your going to be like this until you die, you have no idea how other sufferers do it, do you know anyone in real life who has dp or had it? And if the answer is yes did they healed? I know a couple, they where all terrible at first , but they all healed no one stayed like this forever those are the people i like to believe with the ones i need to talk when i need support , not all the horrible stories saying i cant do it anymore , please help, nope i dont need someone elses ideas inplanted in my head when im already very vulnerable , so please dont compare yourself with other in here , i want you to go in the auccess stories and see alison84 profile i really like her story and posts , she realized now shes healing that this forum and reading over and over the word and the stories keep you in a high alert state, almost every anxiety spectrum state is the same gad and depression can also last 2 years or 1 month it depends in the person the thoughts and the pattern they follow through recovery
