They say this will just pass on its own. It feels like it's going to be life-long, and I've read so many stories to validate that statement. Tell me if you've recovered from this. I had a second yestarday when it was completely gone; it was the most incredible feeling, then it came back with a fury. I'm on drugs now, but drugs will never solve this problem, I know that from that experience above. You have to find a way to not tap into the mind set. Just let go. But it seems impossible, especially when it's been going on for months.

Well D, it seems as if there are no replies to your post. It's kind of a question that can cause one to ponder, not knowing exactly what to say.
I will say that recovery can happen. I had recovered from my first episode with DR for over 8 years when it returned again. I know this is not exactly what you want to hear. I do believe if I knew now what I did not know then, that I would have stayed in recovery.

I do think you have two of the most powerful and positive thoughts to battle this disorder...drugs are not the entire solution ( or a solution at all depending on your thoughts) and you have to find a way to not tap into the mind set. "Just let go" as you said.

Months seem like a long time. The longer you have it, the more you will learn and hopefully the easier time you will have in dealing with it until you do find your way out.

Hope this helps in some fashion.

dp does go. since my first episode, which lasted about 7 months before starting to fade, i've had over 10 years of mostly dp free time. a bit here and there or memories of it maybe. i've recently had a relapse but it hasnt been 24/7 dp and it is on its way out now. when you lift out of it you dont want to think about it and so you dont hear so many stories of people who are over it.
