Cam -

Thanks for another comprehensive reply. If derealization turns out to be due to excitatory proteins, then I guess hope is only a few years away. It makes sense - several sufferers complain of hyperstimulation pushing them into a kind of psychic numbness. People with dp/dr experience a worsening of symptoms with bright lights, fluorescent lights, chaotic noise, and crowds. From various polls on the dpselfhelp website, it seems that everyone has a parent who is bipolar, schizophrenic, or borderline, and everybody has a tendency toward obsessional thought patterns. Most have suffered from depression - I've had lifelong dysthymia, half a dozen major depressions, and two full-blown psychotic manic episodes. But it's the derealization that I find hardest to take - it's like living life in a waking dream. It feels physical, not emotional - like something in the temporal lobe has short-circuited.

Bathroom reading? Really? Pretty scary, Cam.
