Anyone have experience with Depersonalization? I am terrified. difficult child seems to be falling further and further into this. It has been two years since this hit, and not getting better. I have watched a once sports active, funny, smart kid become isolated and withdrawn. Spending almost all of his time in his room. Ofcourse other kids his age cannot relate to how he is feeling and makes this so difficult. He has tried a handful of different medications, and started all with high hopes. Only to be let down. He is a junior in high school and should be enjoying his high school years. I am so afraid, so sad for him. Is there any positive, hopeful outcome? He does not do drugs. He is terrified. Anxiety has overcome his life. He even posted just that on his facebook. How can I help him? His self esteem is gone. He has put on weight...probably due to lack of activity. It seems to be getting worse and I am desperate for help. I tried other discussion boards strictly for DP....but the support is just not like it is here. Haven't received any responses. In all the years on this board, I have received such wonderful support. This Depersonalization has left me helpless and lost in attempts to help him. Please, are there any answers anywhere?
