I posted a story on here way back in 2003, when I was suffering from dp. (story of p aug 03)
Anyway, after a long, long journey I am now TOTALLY free of this terrible illness and actually feel "happy and normal!!, and would like to use my experiences to help others who feel lost or trapped in this world of unreality.
Reading over the forums brings back terrible memories for me, and feelings of utter sadness towards those poor people suffering, and I would like to help in some way if thats possible, even if it offers these people just a glimmer of hope, that this illness can and does go away over time.
I truly believe that DP feeds on itself, and the more you fret and panic, and search for reality.....the worse it gets, it seems to me that its a cross between a sleep disorder, a panic disorder, anxiety, depression, and psychosis.....i mean its all interlinked!! (hope this makes sense!!??) Please, if anybody would like me to answer any questions, or would like some reassurance....or anything....I really want to help.....I promise, Ill do my utmost to drag you back into the real world, and put a genuine smile back on your face.
