oh my how long has it been.  I am 48 years old, yes 48 years old and I have dealt with this for that many years.  At times I feel so far away from myself, but then I think who am I.  I am floating around up there looking down threw the clouds.  Floating, floating…..I want to throw-up.  I feel so disconnected with life.  I have never, ever known who I am, or who I am supposed to be.  How can I.  I take medication to control these emotions.  Then sometimes the medication doesn’t work, so I drink an alcohol beverage.  No, I am not an alcoholic.  It never goes that far.  I usually, just fall asleep.  Sometimes, I can push this way, way, way far back in the recesses of my mind.  Other times it rages without control.  This is one of those times – it is raging.  I don’t even know who is writing this,  I just don’t know.  I’ve seen a therapist – who can understand.  How can you describe this disorder.  Some people think it is “cool”.  Wow, they say, to float above yourself.  It isn’t cool, it is awful.  I will never know who I was meant to be.  I am successful.  Yes, and then some.  I am getting married.  I am supposed to be happy.  I have tons of friends.  I am funny, I make people laugh.  I stand outside myself and the meds don’t work.  I will get married soon.  I love him.  He knows of my disorder.  He cannot comprehend.  Who can.  How can you describe it.  You can’t.

Hi my name is Keri, I have had DP for about 8 years now.  I was so happy when I found this website.  I have searched for years about this disorder and I could not find anything about it.  It really helps to know that you are not alone.  I have read just about every
Hi, I’m Patrick.  I’m 36 and I’ve felt “not here” since I was about 9 or 10.  I can remember the exact moment the feeling came on, and the cause appears to have nothing to do with drugs or abuse, as related by some of the others here, but rather a kind of mental experiment I then
I am currently under a neurologists care. I too smoked pot one evening and have not been the same since.   I never told anyone I smoked pot.  When it happened I figured I figured I was having an anxiety attack while being high.  But I have not been the same for 6 weeks. I went
