    Keep calm as the more you panic the worse it gets.

    It doesn't damage you in any way, can't hurt you in any way.

    Do breathing exercises, take your mind off it by watching tv, reading,listening to music.

    Hope this helps xxx

      I have had 4 psychiatrists and 1 psychologist tell me that I DO NOT HAVE Schizophrenia, but I'm very good at convincing myself that I must. Even though my only symptom is derealization. I'm scared I'm developing schizophrenia. Please helpsad

      Trust me you don't have it, your psychologist would be able to tell based on your symptoms I wouldn't put too much thought into it. If u were really schizophrenic you wouldn't think anything was wrong with you and you wouldn't be scared of the symptoms

      You do not have schizophrenia. If you seen 4 physicatrist they would have picked it up.

      And you will not develop it because you have depersonalisation. 

      Trust in me I have these thoughts aswell its part of our panic and anxiety that we dwell on our condition trying to diagnose ourselves that we get scared and think do I have this aswell. But you dont gave it so please dont stress.

    I agree, you are not , schizophrenic cause they dont know there is anything wrong with their consciousness not being in touch with reality. They think what they see is real eventhough it is not.

    They cannot control not talking to their delusion in public, even when the public do not see who they are talking to. It is not normal, but they cannot help it. Something happened to them in life that they were not able to realize they had mental disability. I do believe they do see things that are not there, but they engage with phantoms and delusions.

    Hi anna

    Yes I do I have severe depression with anxiety 

    Panic attacks and agriphobia with dissociative disorder

    Which is depersonalisation and derealisation.

    I'm 33 now I got this when I was 14yrs old and I did recover

    after around 2yrs then got it again at 21 for some period.

    and now I just got it 3mths ago and im freaking out but I know eventually we will recover I know this from experience.  Im sure it triggered again with myself from too much stress. Even though for years I was ok I did feel normal but I still had the anxiety and panic I was too scared to be alone or drive alone but honestly I was fine with that.

    its just now when I relapse its hard to break out of these strange feelings but deep down I now I will get better 

    but it will take time

      I am too I fell asleep for a few hours and I woke up really bad but Its hard to place the feeling I just feel like either my body is beneath me or above me I'm not quite sure but at the same time I feel numb and everything just feels weird. Idk how to cope with this feeling anymore. What are you feeling?

      Its very hard to explain my feelings and honestly the list will be never ending. But I can asure you I hate the feeling aswell and im constantly crying and want these feelings to disapear. It all comes from severe anxiety.

      I feel weird,  strange, not me its hard for me to hold a conversation because it doesn't feel like its my voice coming out but I don't feel like im anyone else. 

      I struggle even being around my family and I know there my family but I question it "is that really my sister"I feel detached from reality.

      I wont leave my house. Feel tense in my head it  feels heavy.foggy cloudy like im in a daydream state all the time.

      Cause of these feelings I feel anxious and oanicky constantly. 

      I cant be around more than one person I just feel strange and think is this real.

      Anna I was like that at 14 when I was first diagnosed I seen around 9 physchiatrist in one year and went to doctors like 5 times a day cause I was so so scared and panicky and I felt no one was helping me. The only time I got better then was when I stopped seeking help. See I kept wanting reassurance that I was going to get better but they never really gave it to me and I felt they didnt  care.

      We will recover its only a matter of time
