Re: Not Sure If I Have DP/DR -- something else?

Hi Caitlin,

You may or may not have the beginnings of depersonalization disorder, or just some temporary depersonalization symptoms. You can't ignore your age, however, when tremendous hormonal and brain changes are completing their normal growth processes. You may just be overly sensitive to your changing chemistry, and overly analytical about your thinking processes. 74juTry not to worry about it all too much right now.

Re: Not Sure If I Have DP/DR -- something else?

Caitlin,
You need to talk to an adult in your life,parents, or even one of your older sisters. You need to see a real phsyciatrist. I was just diagnosed and am working through it, I go to therapy once a week and am on medication. But, since your only 14 you need medical attention. And soon. This can be serious to the point of harming yourself because your so desperate. Please write me back. I'll listen.

I'm not going to harm myself, I know that much, I would never do that. Another person, Jeff, stated that it could just be my brain developing and all of those things, so I'm trying not to worry.
