I just need to know a few things.. basically, i had suffered dp/dr a few years ago for a couple of years, since then i did everything i could to be positive, i finally understood how i came to that point and how to recover, since then i have had no probs for the past few years.. i have continued with anxiety and panic and have only experianced dr when in extreme panic state, which has only been once or twice and it didnt bother me coz i understood what was happening.. and it passes, the only time ive ever experianced close to dp is when i gave in to depression for a split second.. i gave in and i felt that feeling, so i quickly snapped out of giving in to that as i knew the alternative would be so much harder to deal with, this day im glad to say ive worked through all my issues, but i cant help be confused over the things i read, someone i read about on here said that she too had dp/dr and then recovered and continued with panic etc which makes sense to me, but then she said once in a great while that she would experiance dp/dr and i didnt understand this and it freaked me out, the past few months i feel confused, i feel because i dont understand that im thinking about it all over again which isnt good, once you recover its best to move as far foward as u can, not focusing or going into it, i know i wouldve been ok had i not read anything, and im upset with myself that i did, i knew i shouldnt of but i still went there, i just want peace of mind now so i can move foward. i dont know if this person means it in the same way that ive experianced, ive tried to get in contact with her but dont know how to, so now im left wondering is it something that comes and u cant get out of it, or its from a much more comfortable level like how ive explained where u just dont worry about it and it passes and might only come when u are really stressed etc i just dont know, my common sense tells me it wouldnt be anything bad if you dealt with it and recovered successfully it wouldnt make much sense to just spring from nowhere and not know to deal with it, i know this but the anxiety mind will make anything not make sense its ridiculous. but ive worked so so hard blood sweat and tears to get to where iam with myself today and i cant let one thing i read ruin everything ive worked for simply because i dont get it. i know deep down that everythings ok, but i need reassurance. pls pls anyone who can clear this up and ease my worry, pls do! even though my mind and deep down i know, just a feeling that there is nothing to worry about, not understanding something can be lethal because the anxiety mind can make up anything!

Dear oldsoul84

Good Morning. I am sorry you read something that has caused you to feel upset. Please do try to remember that each person is different and that their experience with their mental health issues is different than your own.

Always read with a open mind and take away what is helpful for you. Try not to project someone else's experience on yourself and if you found the post confusing just let it go.

If you are doing good I would kindly suggest you don't start to overthink any comments you may have read.

Believe in yourself as you said, " but ive worked so so hard blood sweat and tears to get to where iam with myself today and i cant let one thing i read ruin everything ive worked for "
