Depersonalization/derealization

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello been experiencing much DP/DR lately . Anyone tried any medication that have worked for them to relieve it ? My anxiety hasn't been so bad lately . The only thing that triggers me some anxiety is the DPDR sadly . Wanted to see if anyone has had success through medication or anything else.

    Hi eduardo66456,

    I have been having this for the past almost month and it is such an ugly feeling. I feel very much like I'm in a dream and nothing is real. Time goes by so slow and I become very distoriented like I forget where I'm walking or where I am. I'm zoning out a lot and it all seems so nasty. Is this what your experiencing too? If it is and if it's not just know you're not alone

    My symptoms also last 24/7. I'm feeling everything is so unreal that all I want to do is sleep. I feel like I could go to sleep at any given moment or that I already am asleep in a dream. I have faith it will all get better for us though.

      20 years constant but I always have hope.

      I messed around with weed skunk so really wasn't helping my cause unbeknownst to me at the time.

      I know this was addressed to Phil but I'm not able to function at all. I'm at work currently and I'm functioning but I feel like a zombie. My mind takes me where I need to go but I feel like it's so disoriented and unreal.. 😔

      Yes I function. I've never allowed it to interfere with my work only when I was real bad but those days are thankfully behind me. Work takes my mind off it.

      I believe the key is training ur brain to relax and I need to address the issues I had before I had the dr/dp. Cos actually the anxiety I had before when I think about it is worse than just the feeling of dr.

      If I could feel confident in conversation with anyone I would feel good about myself .

      Phil
