Depersonalisatio, derealisation, anxiety!!

Posted , 6 users are following.

HI all!

I've been suffering from the above since October, but just need to post on here as I'm getting so frustrated!

Even though I've had this pretty much constant since October, it feel like it gets worse and worse, then I'll have a good week, then spiral again for no apparent reason at all? I persistently feel tripped out and since Monday, I've had constant deja vu, like constant! It last all day long, it feel like I've lived that exact day before etc, and it's really horrible. I'm currently having cbt, and told her that last week was great and now I'm feeling detached, unreal, constant deja vu, feel stuck in my own body lol etc And she doesn't understand why I spiral and everything goes pear shaped - but then neither do I!!! I'm just tripped out all day long, please help!! 😊

    Please go back to your doctor.....this is such an awful feeling! Anxiety is dreadful....explain exactly how you feel and if he suggests meds then do give them a go...I used to have this all the time but am hopefully coming through it...best wishes, let's know how you get on..

      I understand where your coming from,meds I feel really made things worse. Its probably not true to say they caused it although I know it seems like it but that initial worsening of symptoms can cause dp, therapy is the option I choose as meds are out,they can be every bit if not more effective than meds,ita just a personal choice. Not doing either I'm afraid won't help you at all

      That is probably wise then....I did do meds..i had a really bad reaction to citralopam.......now I meditate, takevit b complex.....and got a good book from Amazon called Thrive by Rob Kelly....taken a while but I do feel as though I am taking more control of the problem my doctor is involved and is very supportive...of my proactivity...I see her once a month....since October I have only taken 8 emergency diazepam...at her suggestion...some days are diamond but I do still have stone days!!! Keep fighting....accept it .....but ......!! Every best wish

      Yes, citalopram was what i took, it was the worst night and week of my life. when I have a good day, few days or hours, I really embrace it and I feel mentally clear, but then it comes back all of a sudden and hits me like a truck and I feel so numb and flat, it completely changes my mood. You could tell me that I've won the lottery and I would not be fussed at all!! X
