I have suffered from chronic depersonalization for nearly a year now.    I was sitting in my class, waiting for the bell to ring, when a girl offered me some pills.  She claimed they were caffeine pills.  I took two, and went back to doing my thing.  After the class, I began to feel odd.  […]
I am so glad that I found this site. I had been reading some of the experiences and some of them are carbon copy descriptions of what I have been living with. I remember my first experience as a child. I was about 10 or 11, I was sitting up in my bunk bed looking […]
Depersonalization started for me when I was about 12. I had been smoking weed with my friend Jes for about 3yrs, and the first time I experienced DP we were sitting in her back yard on a picnic table smoking out of a home made can pipe. My friend dropped the weed, as I went […]
I’d smoked pot since I was about 16. I had resisted for a long time, being a total control freak even at that age, but once I tried it I just had too much fun.  For a number of years I had no problems.  I simply enjoyed myself and suffered the typical paranoia of being […]
Hi my name is Steve and my story started about a year and a half ago.  I started this new job and about 2 months into this job I started getting a tingling sensation in my head and it would not go away at first I thought it might be a migraine headache or something […]
I will be 49 years old on Monday Aug. 2.  It is strange that I finally have an answer to what has been going on with me for all the years of my life. I grew up in a family in which my father was an alcoholic and committed suicide when I was 12 years […]
Everything seems unreal  My Self has disappeared I feel like a robot My thoughts seem strange My mind feels detached from my body The world seems foreign and    unfamiliar I can’t feel anything    My head    feels    hollow    I think I’m going crazy My body seems weird I don’t recognize myself in the mirror I am […]
The first time it happened to me I was about 8. I was visiting Disney World with my mother. I remember I could see my breathe in the air when I turned toward her. I told her I felt like I was dreaming but the words that came out seemed distant and meaningless. I knew […]
This is brilliant! All these people outside looking in, I’m gushing over. I’m 22, I do take a lot of drugs (I make no excuses). I didn’t realize there was a name for this feeling until I found this site. To be perfectly honest I’ve been walking around in a kind of stunned haze these […]
My saga begins on a street corner in a fairly large city with ” my buddy” Jeff stating the question to me, “I thought you were gonna do all three” in regards to some random pharmaceutical amphetamine tablets, “uppers” as they were called, most likely doled out to weight obsessed housewives back in the late […]
If I can stop the tears I’ll be able to get through this! I was unaware of the condition DP until my midwife referred me to a psychiatrist thinking I was suffering from ante-natal depression. I sat in her office answering a string of questions, that for the first time in my life I answered truthfully. […]
I want to say that my severe disconnection from my reality began when I  took LSD with some friends. I was a heavy drug-user. Ecstasy every weekend, sometimes more frequently. I’d smoke marijuana everyday and have the rare hit of acid whenever it came around.      Well, my story begins. All was well in the city […]
