Has anyone heard of wholistic treatments for Chronic Depersonalisation Disorder ? Nothing I have tried has improved it I have been like this for 30 years Lost touch awhile ago with how it is eating up my life. Hoped after my Dads passing 27 years ago that I would overcome it to honor my Dads love and kindness but then feel into New Age treatment made original problem worse .Now have to start from scratch .

    Merideth 30 years of that yucky feeling and still no relief. I've searched wholistic, within and everywhere else. I've concluded it's a chemical imbalance. Your father was probably proud of you from the day you were born and loved you insurmountably I'm sure. You haven't given up yet, keep looking as in your search you have most likely helped countless people with more minor ailments. One day your time will come

    Seek and you will find xxx

    You have already asked this earlier this week. The advice is still the same I'm afraid, speak to a doctor and ask for therapy to deal with the underlying root anxiety

    Holistic treatments, unsure. Referral for DBT, possible. I don't suffer from Chronic Depersonalisation Disorder (never actually heard of that, to be honest) but as part of whatever undiagnosed personality disorder I have, depersonalisation/dissocation/derealisation is very much a fact of life for me. It perfectly explains how I feel.

    CBT may work as well in terms of 'grounding' - focusing on an object that allows you to use your most common 5 senses, and in the process of that training your mind to have more clarity. Having a diary as well - you'll be surprised at how much it actually works in giving some sense of time and place filling in an hourly diary of what you've done, how it made you feel in the sense of mood, pleasure and achievement.

    Another thing worth considering is meditation; particularly mindfulness and awareness.

      There were civil war veteran who wrote about experiencing depersonalization upon returning home from war .But this gentleman forced himself to function at a high level .He flipped out of Depersonalization and derealization and felt like himself after year of being home .I can't seem to function in this state but the writings were inspiring for me .This man was truly restored after much trauma .Once he knew it was safe he came back
