hi. I was recently diagnosed as having depersonalization disorder and anxiety. I have been suffering for years. I wasnot thinking or may be I was confused. I am a successful man but all the time in work I am in stress. I noticed the changes 15 years ago. Ithought that my mind is taken from me and another stupid mind is put instead. No body believed me. they said I am under stress of school take a rest and you will be good. I rested but never felt the same as before that day. I miss myself. I was funny. never thinking, never having sleeping troubles, never feeling strange of my self or others. but now I am a stranger to my self. That panic attack I had 15 years ago is repeated but much more severe and persists till now. I have faith in God and in my self but I am suffering. I thank my God for every thing. I am under treatment now and need to speek to some one suffering from the same disease so we can help each other. I am relieved by talking to you and have the feeling that some one is listening. I will be more happy if any one responds.
My life with dp/dr, anxiety is about ten years. I often wonder, remembering how my life was without it. It was a good times, i enjoyed my life, wonderful moments of my life. It would be good to cure all, all these disorders and fully enjoy my life once again.
