Hey /dis/, I just wanted to get an idea of what kind of people use dissos and for what reasons. Not tryna start a tumblr circlejerk but I am interested to see if there are any patterns. If you'd like to take the time to answer these questions, I'd be really grateful!

>1. Do you have any mental disorders? If so, what are they? (please specify if diagnosed by a doctor or by yourself): previously: depression, bulimia current: social anxiety, drug addiction (all diagnosed) scored borderline on a borderline personality disorder but not quite there, though i definitely have issues with a lot of those traits

>2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders? = yes, but it triggers really bad anxiety and depression a day or 2 after afterglow

>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)? = What I just said, and chronic abuse puts me in a really overemotional, unfocused depressed anxious paranoid state

>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos? = just worsened my anxiety, depression and personality issues

>5. How are you doing right now? = not too bad, fucked up my 5 months sobriety and feeling like my use is creeping back up and making my new life/job harder, but it's been a lot worst before. came really close to buying 20g of powder dxm this week but that's when shit gets REALLY bad for me because i have no self-control and i literally feel like a prisoner of that shit, so the fact i managed to stay away is great, though i know i'll end up spending money on garbage otc stuff that wrecks my gut and stomach, but at the same time, its less accessible and harder to dose so it makes me do less DXM...

abused mxe back in 2012 too, though i havent touched RC dis in a while. got D-Ket coming in the mail though lol...

>1. Do you have any mental disorders? If so, what are they? (please specify if diagnosed by a doctor or by yourself)
I've had depression for years. The heavy, numb and dead inside kind with a lot of avoidant anxiety, too, but I've since put it into submission with vitamins, supplements, foods, and cutting excessive/constant weed and alcohol use out of my life.. which was only making it worse. Other than that, nope. I'm just sort of socially distant introvert besides that.

>2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders?
I did somewhat, but I was using them mostly for the same reason people use psychedelics, for exploration and digging into myself. They helped me clear away the cloudiness and see the clearer picture.

>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?
DXM actually helped a lot in getting my brain into a positive state while fighting with making the changes I listed above. I've been able to understand positivity better and am more able to hold onto it while sober.

>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos?
Yes, somewhat.. as I just said. It was definitely a good tool for me.. but other actions/changes were needed to be taken alongside of the use.

>5. How are you doing right now?
I'm dandy. I enjoy things I was unable to when depressed. I can concentrate better. My enthusiasm is back. I simply feel normal. Even my bad days are better.

Again, DXM was merely a tool I used while making other changes.. Those changes were very difficult to stay motivated with while sober and depressed. I couldn't be positive or even feel pleasure without being high or drunk. I don't think I'd have been able to do it otherwise and would have remained stagnating in depression and cynical negativity.

I'm using DXM less and less nowadays, and am honestly inching towards not even using it at all. The last time was 2 weeks ago out of boredom and it hardly affected me. I went through 2000 mg in a day and it just felt like I'd drained the well dry already.

> 1. Do you have any mental disorders? If so, what are they? (please specify if diagnosed by a doctor or by yourself)
Diagnosed by various doctors over the years: Bipolar Disorder type 2, Borderline Personality Disorder, General Anxiety and ADHD. As for self-diagnosed, I'm not exactly sure how I feel about the above diagnoses. They all have pieces of accuracy, but it feels more like a melting pot of all the various symptoms of each disorder, without necessarily being distinct. They're all woven together, so each one affects the others. The only thing I might add is that I might be on the very beginning side of the autism spectrum; with maybe a hint of Shizotypal Personality Disorder sprinkled on top. But it's all just a mess of generally being an unbalanced person.
> 2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders?
Yes. Most dissos help incredibly with the depressive side of the Bipolar. They help with social anxiety (at low doses). They smooth out the quick mood switches of BPD. They help me be more empathetic, and less apathetic.
> 3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?
It's most noticeable with DXM. If I binge on DXM, sooner or later I'll flip into a hypomanic phase. It's happened with MXE and DXK too, but DXM has done it the most often. The afterglow just sort of overflows until I feel like I'm on top of the world.
> 4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos?
Ummm. The schizotypal shit probably was/is exacerbated by the /dis/ use. As long as I take breaks it doesn't get too bad, but if I binge I start to think some weird shit, and not just weird /dis/ thoughts; like my brain starts to practically vibrate from inability to control or contain itself. It feels like it's about to fall apart.
> 5. How are you doing right now?
Aight. I've been without /dis/ for almost 3 weeks now. I'm dying for my next order of DCK to get here in the mail. It's killin me. Just a few more days now...

I don't think that anon's experience is wrong, but as the first anon (who apparently fucked up her formatting) this can be very risky, especially if you have an addictive personality. Personally, I've been addicted on and off to DXM and drugs for 10 years (DXM is def my drug of choice though, I liked it even more than MXE at the time when the good shit was around, though MXE sure was amazing too and easier to take, no nausea etc) and I used to convince myself that it made me see the beautiful things in life, that it made me understand people and emotions and everything. Perhaps it's a bit true, but any positive effect the drug might have had on my psyche and attitude towards the world was way overshadowed by how much my use fucked up the rest of my life and relationships. I don't know to what extent my DXM uses interacts with my SSRI or if this would happen anyway, but too much DXM in too short an amount of time really makes me lose my shit emotionally and I become an oversensitive, depressed anxious paranoid mess while I'm usually okay at least 80% of the time if I don't use. (But I don't cuz that's not how addictions work)

>1. Do you have any mental disorders? If so, what are they? (please specify if diagnosed by a doctor or by yourself)

I might be a psychopath. I have constant intrusive thoughts of insects due to OCD which fucked with my DXM trips and sexuality. I have friends that I know from the internet but my daily life is runescape and facebook shitpost chatting, so i might be a sperg or at least have sperg traits, I also sometimes feel violent urges towards women which are incorporated into my sexuality. very violent :).

>2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders?

i use dxm because normal drugs arent good enough for me. crack and heroin get you hjigh but there's nothing interesting about it, i love runescape and i feel like im in a video game completing a destiny when i trip on dxm.

>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?

im not sure if its just my personality or the drugs but i'd get extremely agitated over anythingg that could produce any amount of pleasure. feeling so empty that the first thing is to chug an energy drink, swallow tumeric and black pepper, fish oil from the dollar tree 10 grams. i woul crave anything even if it was just a placebo,

>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos?

i was tripping on nutmeg and dxm one time and my mental imagery wasery vivid, i was imagining having sex with dead girls puke blood shit etc and i thought of a cockroach crawling into an autistic girk's pussy and eating her organs and fapped to it and it destroyed my mind,.

>5. How are you doing right now?

Bipolar II Self-Diagnosed. Neuro undergrad, I understand the inaccuracy of self-diagnoses, but I refuse to have anything listed on my medical record. It's just that after comparing years of my journal entries against the BPII criteria, it's the most convenient label I can give myself
>2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders?
Yes
>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?
No matter what stage of my cycle I'm in, I can always count on the fact that a couple disso sesh's will send me back to hypo. Which is so much better than endless months of depression. I don't always have access, but when I do, it's a 4 sure cure <3
Can't just use them all the time though. But when they're around, its such a effortless change from Winter to Spring! I haven't been able to try consistent dosing every few weeks to see if it would actually stablize my mood.
>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos?
You could argue that it gives me mania, or alleviates depression. Those are just symptoms it can treat though, it doesn't ever get rid of the underlying mood disorder
>5. How are you doing right now?
Just switched into hypo recently. Had suicidal thoughts last week. And now I'm king of the world. I think this is one of those weird times where dissociatives and my cycles lined up. Because they came to me right as I was at my worst.

  1. yep, generalized anxiety disorder and depression.
  2. yep, thats why I take dissos in the first place.
  3. they help a lot when I'm on them, and have helped me get myself into a better place in life in general. i also used to get really bad problems with intrustive thoughts before i tried dissos and i was a bit suicidal, but I havent had them since I first tried dissos even when sober. however, im not sure if the dissos helped or if i just got lucky. i've started getting them more recently though, so i dunno whats up with that. perhaps my tol has got too monsterous or my luck has run out
  4. pretty terrible and out of dissos

It's worth a go. The first few times are incredibly amazing, but please.. don't rely on it to cure you. It may feel like it has/is, but it won't.. That's where you'll feel things turning around on you and you'll end up more depressed than before. I used it quite a bit for 3 months, but then tapered off as I began to feel happier and physically better while doing other things to fix myself. As I said, it was merely a tool to keep me above water while I made the changes in my life like eating healthier, quitting excessive pot and alcohol use, taking supplements/vitamins to bring up my various deficiencies, and started getting more sunlight and exercise.

Also, something that REALLY helped me out. A year before I decided to use DXM again, I was still super depressed and started taking measures to limit fluoride intake in order to clean out my pineal gland.. Aside from the spiritual hippie shit you can experience through it, it's just better to have it clean in general due to it regulating hormones like serotonin and melatonin, and overall balance in the body. I noticed a difference after a year of drinking specific bottled water and using specific toothpaste, and even more so with diet changes and supplements. Things like turmeric can clean it out along with not over-eating meat. I'm no vegan, so I won't preach that shit.

tl;dr Take DXM in moderation to maintain a positive attitude and happiness while at the same time making immediate changes to your lifestyle through eating healthy takin' yer vitamins/supplements, and getting more exercise and sun. Then slow down or quit the DXM. Strive for positivity. Remember to breath deep and breath often.
Optional: Dabble in spirituality and find peace with inevitable death because you're an eternal being... You may have an awakening anyways when using DXM. I did. It was no different from one experienced through meditation.

  1. Major Depressive Disorder (diagnosed by a counselor when I was 13 or so) and then a host of anxiety disorders. Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (diagnosed by a psychiatrist when I was 18). The depression comes and goes. I'm never debilitated by depression or anything. Anxiety though? That's a different story.

2. Eh, sort of. I don't take dissociatives very often, but when I do it's usually a spur of the moment thing. Beyond that, I've always enjoyed the afterglow of certain /dis/. The mood lift is great, but I don't use that to help any depressive symptoms. /dis/ does next to nothing for my anxiety.

3. I think some /dis/ experiences have led to mild depersonalization on their own and had been worse when I was taking psychedelics more often. My social anxiety tends to be a bit higher than usual when the afterglow wears off.

4. Nope. Helped depression, but it didn't get "rid" of it

5. Decent, but stressed. Bogged down with schoolwork and trying to get this relationship off the ground with a doctoral student in my program.

>1. Do you have any mental disorders? If so, what are they? (please specify if diagnosed by a doctor or by yourself)
I don't think so, and people close to me don't think so either. I've never had any councelling or diagnosed anything.

>2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders?
I felt traumatized by last break up, because this one made me unable to sleep properly, which was new. I had to start using sleeping aids to be able to get rest and not feel like dying from insomnia. I was actually thinking about getting an apointment for some help. I knew it's natural and I'd get over it eventually, but I wanted to speed up the process. Insomnia combined with bad feelings was horrible and felt very unwell. I had a holiday luckily and went on DXM "trips" for a few times, which was a new substance to me. Extracted from cough medicine and doses increased over time, starting carefully.

>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?
I found it suprisingly therapeutic. During the high, besides feeling relaxed and some interesting aural and visual changes in perception, I was able to strongly feel and think about my situation differently. Really feeling of giving up, getting back on my feet and healing and not just thinking about it in theory. I think it really helped, like self-therapy of sorts. I had the day afters and it took a couple of weeks to get totally back from the use, but I think it was worth it.

>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos?
I don't feel traumatized by the break up anymore and I have been also able to sleep without aids for a long time. What helped me in the end was me, but I think DXM experiences made it happen faster.

Everything is well and normally.

I think I have depression, but never got it diagnosed because fuck it.

>1. Do you have any mental disorders? If so, what are they? (please specify if diagnosed by a doctor or by yourself)

After denying it and being misdiagnosed, eventually self-diagnosed narcissistic personality disorder, which was only recently agreed with by doctors and a counsellor

>2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders?

I used to do so heavily and very consistently, taking seconds and thirds multiple times a week so I could constantly ride on the afterglow. I still occasionally take 1st to 2nd plateaus (can't even physically reach 3rd+ anymore) and it is to self medicate, because at the core of NPD is self loathing and dissociatives make it easier to forget past hurts and awkwardness, able to just be open without hesitating and then ruminating over it. "Open" as in disinhibited by a drug, I feel like I could easily always struggle socially either without it or without legitimate therapy.

>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?

Allowed me to look at it more objectively and identify some of the patterns I fall into, even though it does little to actually change the ingrained, conditioned behaviours. I don't know how but DXM definitely stacked upon certain aspects of my personality such as being somewhat aloof, abstract in spoken communication and animated

>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using
dissos?

That's an interesting question that I'm not sure someone could flat out say 'yes' to, in all honesty. It helped me with some aspects but unlike psychedelics, it aggravated other things. For example, experiences of self-awareness, empathy for your fellow human and oneness can be a healing experience for someone with a personality disorder, but dissociation, abstract thought and serotonergic euphoria can develop into grandiose, manic and even quite literally psychotic symptoms that last longer than the drugs are in your system

>5. How are you doing right now?

Ok, I take antidepressants for a more stable form of the benefits DXM gave me, without the erratic highs and weird middles, and also try to smoke a lot of weed to stay calm and slow down as opposed to antipsychotics or anxiety medication. I haven't hurt myself/others, gotten into trouble with the law or gotten my ass kicked in a while so I think it's actually working

  1. ADHD, diagnosed by a doctor. Suspected Bipolar, on the table because family medical history and symptom overlap. I've also had two Traumatic Brain Injuries that have contributed significantly to everything.

2. I used to for about 4 years, I've since stopped, using dissociatives maybe once every two or three months.

3. It's fucked my already fucked memory (mostly due to brain injury) and for a while it contributed to mood dysregulation. I took them mostly because they allowed me to feel emotions again, because after the initial head injury and period of intense depression for the first two years, I've basically lost the ability to feel.

4. Gotten rid of any? Fuck no. If you want to call acute psychosis a mental disorder, then yeah, I've had 7 psychotic breaks and 6 were to do with dissociatives.

5. Better than I was when I was deep in the shit. Learning to cope with trying to remain sober. Not being able to form emotional attachments to things or feel or express emotions properly bothered me a lot for some time but I've since learned to deal with it, so I'm doing alright.

I did, with anxiety, definitely. Never in public but the effects carried over into my daily life.


>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?

They made me chill out and see the beauty in life. A few bad trips also fucked me over bigtime with anxiety. So good and bad over a long period.

>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos?

They helped.

1.major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, professionally diagnosed

2.I used to self medicate with dis and other drugs, but mostly dis, back when I was not diagnosed but suspected something is wrong

3.they seemed to help but it was clearly a delusion and in the long run not only did I become extremely addicted, but symptoms of mdd and gad significantly increased

4.of course not, it only made them much worse, see above

5. laid off antidepressants, continuing cognitive behavioural therapy, staying away from literally everything including caffeine

Schizoaffective Disorder (more or less officially diagnosed). I was also diagnosed as being autistic in my teens, but that was bullshit.

>2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders?

Definitely. My emotions usually get too intense to deal with while sober, although recently I've found that DXM only makes it worse now. Back when I was drinking alcohol every day, it didn't make it worse at all. Well, it probably would have if I was also using DXM every day, which I have wisely never done.

>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?

I think that in the beginning, they provided me a release from my constant trauma, but now, I really feel that they make things worse, or at least DXM does. I'm trying to find another drug that won't fuck with me so much.

>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos?

No.

>5. How are you doing right now?

Well, I'm not an alcoholic anymore and I still enjoy being alive. If I like being alive, things are at least tolerable, I think. But I wonder if I have any future.

My symptoms usually involve disorganization (I can't really do a whole lot outside of basic tasks, such as reading books and paying bills), physiological depression (I have no energy to do anything, so I just sit around thinking about stuff and then when I go to bed I stay up for hours because my mind just does not know when to stop), paranoia (this is justified because I've been fucked over too many times by people who I thought I could trust), delusions that are usually benign, a fixation with the supernatural and paranormal, and visual hallucinations.

Oddly, I almost never have auditory hallucinations and I'm rarely manic, which in a way is good because manic people usually act like idiots, and I have, too. I've had suicidal thoughts before but I've never acted on them. I mean, there is no point to have an early death unless if you have no choice.

DXM helped me before because it served as an emotional release; my mind would just have all of this pressure and baggage and when I would trip, it would be clear for a while. I would also have intense visions and thoughts and I also learned how to use divination through it, so that was a plus. I never really used psychedelics, and the one that I did try (LSA) was so pointless that I really don't know why they are so popular with everyone else. I also become aggressive on LSA so that isn't too good for me.

Schizoaffective Disorder differs from Schizophrenia mainly in that there are major mood swings associated with it, and during a clear period, one may be fairly lucid or even fairly normal. It has a slightly better prognosis, largely because it isn't quite constant.

I have a theory that quite a few people who abuse DXM had a mental issue in the first place. Most people think that DXM causes mental disturbances but I honestly believe that the mentally disturbed use DXM to become less disturbed. And I feel like it really did help me for years; it just doesn't help me anymore, for some odd reason. I'm now thinking of no longer using drugs, because you never really know what is going to happen if you continue to use them. Then again, meditation can do the same thing, so I don't know. I just hate sobriety.

the theory i came up with a while back is that dissos pretty much straight up slow down your thoughts, and in a trippy sort of way so that you dont notice it much cause it doesnt feel like theyre slow, but it brings calm to those who are tormented by their thoughts and would be one of the reasons it makes you look like youre retarded to onlookers. and it generally allows you to better process your thoughts as a better result, which is hard to do normally when youve got mental issues. and the antidepressant effect is an added bonus that means pretty much fucking everyone with mental issues has at least one out of the two reasons i listed to abuse dissos.

but i only have anxiety and depresssion so thats not a big set to work with for coming up wiht theories.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head, but I feel like my thought processes are expanded when I'm high. However, that isn't exclusive to having your thoughts slow down; just the opposite, you can focus way more than you otherwise would be able to. I never use stimulants because I know that my brain would go haywire and I may never come back out of it; there is really no point to it, anyway. People think that drug users will both like and use all kinds of drugs, but for at least the self-aware, they only like certain kinds. I happened to love dissociatives and alcohol, and I didn't really use anything else outside of those things.

>2. YES I fuckin do. I don't use my disso of choice (DXM) on a daily basis or anything like that, but it's rare I go two weeks without 1 - 3 uses. I tend to be a weekend dexxer.

>3. I feel like I've become alot more emotionally numb/neutral as a result of my DXM use. It's helped me get some emotional distance - hasn't done my social functioning any good, but has helped with some of my emotions and surpressed feelings for sure.

>4. I haven't gotten rid of my disorders, but as I said it's numbed them down a considerable amount, thankfully. While I went through a period of very heavy irresponsible use, I suspect I brought on a mini psychotic episode that lasted a few weeks.

Not really, it'd be armchair philosophy if I lived my life judging people and trying to fit them into neat little boxes based on whatever trauma/coping mechanisms they have (or worse, trying to put myself in one of those boxes as an excuse for why I'm not living the best life I can be - which I still catch myself doing sometimes) instead of just taking every person as a unique entity. It's just kind of weird asking something like "do you have any mental disorders?" on a drug board, I assumed people here would have a more open ended view of mental health. I guess I'm missing the point here, maybe I'm just retarded? Then again I never really understood survey threads anyway.

Labels are a necessary part of communication, but you're absolutely right that taking them too seriously is detrimental. It's important to realize that they're just symbols used to convey information about tendencies and habits, they're not concrete and they certainly don't define you as a person.

Treatment resistant refractory major depressive disorder, ADD, OCD, anxiety

yes, under the direction of a doctor I use ketamine to help with my depression, along with other dissociatives, including DXM, 3-MeO-PCP, MXE (hah wish it was still around), etc.

>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?

dissociatives have had a very important impact on me as a person. I would not be alive if it weren't for the insight that dissociatives have brought to me.

I am currently considered healthy but i see a therapist. Im trying to get some diagnoses so i know whats been hoing on all these years. But then again, everyone wants an excuse for the way they behave in life, so maybe im just doing that, because the only thing anyone has said i most likely had was add/adhd. My therapist cant find anything diagnosable. I have self diagnosed myself for a few things but i realize in the future that i was just projecting the illness onto myself, not actually noticing real and present issues.

To make a long story short, im a decently healthy minded individual. Nothing disgnosable past a little add/adhd. Self diagnosed myself with lots of stuff but these "diagnoses" change like a pair of socks so who knows what, if anything, i really have.

I have however taken multiple iq tests that have shown scores that never drop below a 130-140 and even got some 160s. These were on free online iq tests however, as i havent found anyone "qualified" to give a real test, but im currently searching. Maybe my only real mental "illness" is my intelligence. It does seem to cause me lots of heart ache and hassle.

Gonna post a follow up to this probably but theres that for now.

I've been fine for a long time, but depression 6-7 years ago did contribute to dissociative use (DXM, then MXE), for the reason that my symptoms went away for a few days after tripping. They always returned, but it was a necessary breath of fresh air.

Following a couple of months of moderate MXE use - when it was still reliably good - I did come out of it with more stability, and the worst aspects of depression were gone. I think the governments of the world did us a disservice - again - by banning a useful substance out of a kneejerk "it's a drug, drugs are bad" reaction.

With the right dissociative, there's a "clean" - and cleansing - euphoria/clarity I haven't seen from any other drug. Side effects from the original MXE were almost nonexistent. Those experiences are priceless. I probably wouldn't have come to that appreciation if I wasn't using dissociatives to medicate, years ago; the side effects of DXM are bad enough to make it a lousy gateway drug. You may have a point from that perspective.

It's been awhile since the last /dis/ experience (3-meo-pce - loved it, had to throw it out). I can't afford to do this given my current job/lifestyle, and I don't need to. I miss it, though. I get really nostalgic for 2012 and MXE. That was the best year of my life.

On a note vaguely related to >4. I once met this raver kid who claimed that he "used to be autistic" but he just took heaps of dingers (ecstacy) and that fixed it right up. He also told me that meth must be good for you because he never has a runny nose while he's on it.

Foreword: I have taken DXM over 100 times, most of them over 750mg, topping out at 1150.

  1. I have been formally diagnosed with unipolar depression, anxiety, assburgers, and bipolar disorder. I probably have none of these, I didn't socialize much as a kid and was anxious and confused as a teen; I let the diagnoses make me think I was 'different' for many years, preventing me from pursuing change within myself. I'm over all that now and the only drug that helped was weed by making me paranoid and questioning myself.
  2. Nope.
  3. Dis use has not changed me at all.
  4. Nope.
  5. Doing okay.

>1. No. I'm pretty normal, though my social skills kinda suck.. but that's developmental and something I've always struggled with, not a disorder really. I did suffer from extreme depression and anxiety in the past, though.
>2. I began to use DXM out of boredom and because I wanted to explore my mind, and beyond.
>3. They haven't affected me negatively in the slightest. My mind and body feel just fine.
>4. My depression is overall gone now, and my anxiety has become almost non-existent, too.. except on certain occasions when I just don't feel like dealing with a certain situation. DXM played a big part in giving my brain a nudge into feeling emotions and enjoying life again by forcing it to produce more serotonin and dopamine again, but I had also quit drinking and smoking pot in excessive amounts, and had also began to eat a little healthier and take various supplements and vitamins for my brain and body, as well. Combined with that, DXM basically forced me into happiness while the other measures I was taking well building me back up as well.
>5. I'm doing just fine. I enjoy life and many things in it again. Sometimes I get lonesome because I'm a major introvert with no social life nowadays, but I'm feeling fantastic compared to the past 8 years. I was using DXM a lot last year.. multiple times a week, but now I do it once to twice every other month, or so.

1). Autism (specifically, PDA), GAD, panic attacks​, depersonalization/derealization disorder- all professionally diagnosed
2). I have, with varying degrees of success in the past. I'm currently sober, and worrisomely unmedicated.
3). It's paradoxically disappointing how well appropriately moderated self medication with DXM and/or stimulants has worked, because no other class(es) of drugs- either prescribed or self administered- have been as effective or manageable. Even under ideal circumstances, I could no longer self medicate with even modest doses of DXM, because my tolerance would render it useless, or moderate doses, because I can't physiologically risk it, given the damage I've already done through heavy abuse. I wish I could look back and honestly say, "yeah, it was never really helpful anyway. I'm altogether better without it". At least for the future, I can still keep my fingers crossed for medical/legal marijuana.
4). Neither. I effectively suppressed much of my autism and DPDD for several years through the regular use of various drugs, and sporadic, experimental use of others​. Upon recent cessation, it's become abundantly clear that I've grown both socially and intellectually in this time more than I ever could have sober, but the progress and learning aptitude have stopped dead in their tracks. It happened almost immediately. I'm back in the mind of my highschool/pre-highschool self, just with a lot more mental data to work with. It's unclear wether a gentle medical push may be able to reopen access to the latent social awareness, problem solving skills, and learning capacity that had surfaced while using at my own discretion. For instance, gabapentin seemed to hold potential (albeit at the higher end of the theraputic dose range), but I don't currently have a prescribing doctor. And again, marijuana showed great promise, but nobody's looking at me thinking "yep, seen it before... this guy needs weed in his life- let's help the poor bastard out".
5). Waiting/fighting for disability- for which my care team and legal representatives seem to think I have a shoo-in case- for whatever that tells you.

>1. Do you have any mental disorders? If so, what are they? (please specify if diagnosed by a doctor or by yourself)
pretty bad social anxiety. I'm very introverted when I'm sober. even when I'm alone I constantly wonder how I'm perceived. I daydream constantly.

I think I have AvPD. I went to my first ever psychologist appointment yesterday and he said that it seems like I have generalized or social anxiety.
>2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders?
I guess I use them to deal with anxiety. now I've moved onto benzos. I told myself that I'd never use benzos last year, but here I am.
>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?
It's like using a hand fan to cool yourself off. It works, but your hand gets tired and then you just feel even hotter than before. drugs make me feel better, but then I notice my problems even more when I sober again. this is true for all drugs.
>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos?
not really.
>5. How are you doing right now?
I feel like all my problems are self created and that I'm whining over nothing. I fear my next psychologist appointment because I think that he thinks that I'm a dumbass. I feel so down. I should really get out of bed and do something to distract myself from these thoughts.

I see an awful lot of people contest stuff they were diagosed with. I wonder if the jaded antisocial people who are prone to indulge in this stuff are the kind of people hard to psychoanalyse

i feel like that might be the case. i have a lot of denial about how i can "TOTALLY USE ONCE IN A WHILE I'LL CONTROL MY SELF THIS TIME" or my recent new delusion, "PSYCHEDELICS ARE DIFFERENT, ITS FOR ENLIGHTENMENT" and i find myself back in the cycle of casual use turning heavier and heavier -> hit rock bottom -> want to quit -> sobriety -> hit a sobriety milestone/something shit in life happens/both -> convince myself i can use a bit/fuck it life isnt worth it i might as well get high -> go back to drugs

but I've always stayed functional over my 10 years of addiction. some people on here seem to have insane habits and theyre gonna burn out, there's no way they'll sustain forever, no way. i'm not sure they're ones in denial or the ones who have completely given up, though...

>1. Do you have any mental disorders? If so, what are they? (please specify if diagnosed by a doctor or by yourself)
ADHD inattentive, as well as occasional 'episodes' of OCD. Both diagnosed, but I've pretty much grown out of them.
>2. Do you consciously use dissos to cope with your disorders?
No, I only use drugs for fun.
>3. How have dissos affected your condition(s)?
My first DXM trip ended a months long OCD episode by allowing me to detach from the underlying obsession. That was pretty cool, but I never used dissociatives for that purpose again, not sure why.
>4. Have you ever gotten rid of a mental disorder or developed one by using dissos?
See above, otherwise no difference.
>5. How are you doing right now?
Great, i'm more productive, organized, and content than i've ever been. Besides that browsing 420chan and reading some people's posts makes me worry that I, too, will someday descend into drug addiction
