Hey my name is Ryan and I’ve been dealing with extreme stress anxiety for about two years now and within the past six months I’ve been experiencing something called DP/DR and I’m not sure if there’s anyone similar in the area that’s also experiencing this type of mental state so just curious on if anyone had any tips or tricks

      Vibing through it, finding comforting things, show’s, etc. that it’s not distressing to melt into or that help ground you in a way that makes you feel safe People that get to know you well that are comforting, having people reflect what you’re like back to you by being your friend, having someone you can ask what you’re like without them being judgemental, etc. (be careful to pick people that are unlikely to take advantage of that. I.E. give yourself longer than normal before you fully invest in a relationship. DR/DP makes you vulnerable)

      hey there Ryan. i know how awful and scary it feels to be in this state of mind. I've learnt some time ago that when you are feeling everything way too much then your mind shuts down, and goes into this state. you start to feel robotic and disconnected from yourself, human existence and the world itself. it is the brains unusual way of trying to protect you, it doesn't mean that you're going crazy or lost your mind Personality or self. you are able to heal.. so just keep that in mind whenever you might feel that way. I find that minimizing stress and caffeine helps, as going outside, breathing fresh air, the 54321 grounding exercise might work as well, go barefoot outside, pray, read the bible, meditate, get some sunlight, Going on a carnivore diet helped immensely, eating enough fat, intermittent fasting, 1-2 minute cold showers. red light therapy. Journaling, talking to someone you trust about it, going to church, love. they all help you heal. Ir is a process it takes time. some supplements that help may be: lions mane, lemon balm, l theanine. cod liver oil. they are all great for the brain and for anxiety. i wish you the best in your journey, remember to never give up or lose hope. remember to allow yourself to feel anything that may come up.

      Honestly just do what you can to deal with your stress. I know it's easier said than done. Don't focus on are stress about DP/DR. It is caused by your stress. It is your mind trying to protect yourself.

      Hey man I've been going through the same thing and the only thing that's noticeably helped me is talking to new people and seeing people's mindsets
