DP Sufferer in The News

Kudos to Carol W. Berman, M.D. for her Huffington Post article on a twenty year sufferer of Depersonalization Disorder.

A brief sample of Out Of His Body: A Case Of Depersonalization Disorder:

"One day I was walking around the city, minding my own business, when suddenly I found myself looking down at myself from somewhere near the awning of a store. It was unreal and the weirdest thing in the world!" he exclaimed, his hands shaking. "Since then, and that was 20 years ago, I've had one experience like that after another and never completely felt like I was back in my body. I constantly feel spaced out."
