About 5 days ago, I went to party and got really drunk for the first time. When I woke up the next morning and ever since then, I've felt very disconnected from reality. The night after the party I had to go into work so I took a 5 hour energy, which seemed like it intensified the fogginess I was feeling. It feels like I'm watching a movie of my life or am in a dream rather than being present and grounded. I feel very detached and I have a hard time concentrating or thinking clear thoughts. Everything just feels detached and when I talk to people its like I'm on autopilot.I've been looking it up and it seems like my symptoms are very similar to derealization/depersonalization/disassociation (I don't know the difference?). However, many forums say that this sometimes happens to people after drinking alcohol and fades after about a week... I'm hoping this is the case for me, but I've also seen a lot of people say that it's lasted years. I've seen that it's often caused by anxiety but I don't think of myself as having much anxiety and I'm not depressed. It's a scary experience and I would love to hear some other opinions/experiences or if anyone has any advice or can tell me how long I should expect this to last
