Depersonalization & derealization disorder (DP/DR) is a scary, confusing mental health issue. It makes you feel like you are not yourself anymore. It makes the world seem bizarre and unreal.
What makes this condition frustrating is that even trained doctors and psychologists don’t know much about it. It's so hard to find real help.
Day-in and day-out you struggle with this disorder. You get tormented by scary intrusive thoughts. Maybe you’re wondering if this is the beginning of insanity or something serious.
Fear grips you. You become scared of even the slightest change in how you feel.
By night time you are exhausted from fighting these feelings all day. To think that you have to do this all over the next day makes you feel scared and hopeless.😢
How do I know all of this? Because I once was a sufferer just like you. I know first hand the terror and the pain this experience can put someone through.
