    Yep, I have been experiencing this for the past few months. Initially, I would feel fine most the day, and have a few moments throughout the day that would feel like a dream / unreal. Now, my symptoms are pretty constant but less extreme. I can think my way into feeling like a dream, but generally by vision just seems a bit hazy. Very annoying and a bit depressing. Praying for freedom from this for both of us!

    Hello clairbear

    YES......many people who use this site experience Depersonalisation/Derealisation with anxiety.   It is horrible and frightenening until

    you can come to terms with it.

    It can mianifest itself in several ways:

    Feeling unreal

    Feeling as if you are "fading away"

    Feeling if when you speak, your voice is coming from nowhere

    Feeling as if the walls/patterned wallpaper are coming in on you

    Feeling as if buildings are coming in on you

    Feeling as if you are very tall

    Feeling as if you are very short

    These are from my personal experiences....and no, I am not mad.  Just the opposite.

    It comes with heightened anxiety, but can be "cured" as anxiety lessens.

    Keep posting, keep smiling. Good Luck

      Anxiety..Yes!   Schizophrenia...No! .... I am obviously not a Doctor, but I am sure that symptoms for the latter are much more serious and more recognisable.  So much more is known about anxiety symptoms now, thank goodness, than say 50/60 years ago.  Also, you can tell by the number of people that use this site, that anxiety symptoms are actually common.  Not surprising in this uncertain world and the pressures put on us all from so many directions.  Keep Positive!  Good Luck!
