This has turned into more of a life story… But I guess the person’s history is crucial to understanding the person. I’m not sure when exactly this depersonalization thing came on, and what caused it. If I had to guess I’d say it was a combination of an overwhelming feeling of inferiority mixed with an […]
I’ve visited this site so many times – read and reread the stories hoping to find my life story – to find some sort of explanation for my own feelings and thoughts.  I find comfort in knowing that I am not alone in these feelings yet cannot get seem to get past the fact that […]
This is blowing my mind. I cant believe there are other people out there that feel “not here” as well. I like to call it being on “auto-pilot” not that I can’t control what I’m doing, its like my soul has more important matters to deal with than everyday things. Often times I will be driving, […]
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 […]
I am 16 years old. I just really got into smoking pot about 4 months ago, but, before that I had only done it a few times. I use to have a really good time smoking pot with a couple of friends of mine, there would never be a bad time and I always wanted […]
Hi… I’m Gabby. I am 16 and I have DP… On June 1st, 2001 I was hit by a car. My whole entire elementary school saw the whole thing from beyond the backyard gates during recess as I walked back from getting pizza with my then best friend Jovon. I was only 11 years old. Now at […]
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 […]
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 […]
I have not been clinically diagnosed with anything, which may at this point invalidate my claim, but I know I’ve got the “something” those of us with this condition experience. Corresponding with accounts I’ve read from others, some of us develop this identity (ha) after we come to perceive the human existence as one devoid […]
Here is the story of my experiences with DP/DR. First of all I would just like to state that I have never done ANY drugs besides drink once and a while, and I know that the drinking has nothing to do with my DP. My first experience with this menace was in 7th grade. It […]
I’ve had episodes of DP over the past 8 years. The most disturbing one was the one triggered by weed. I’ve had Dp before I started smoking weed and now that I’ve had an awfull trip I think i better stay away from the drug.I think I’m figuring it out though. It’s NOT the ultimate reality, it’s […]
I am twenty-five and have been dealing, or attempting to deal with depersonalization for twenty years. I do not recall any of my time here on earth before age of four, so that time is irrelevant to me. I grew up in a dysfunctional environment, so it is my guess that depersonalization on my behalf […]
