Derealization and the real world

Posted , 4 users are following.

Sometimes when I go through so much derealization or long periods of time , or just a really strong attack of it, and I finally come back out of it the real world starts to feel too overwhelming and hard to take it it gives me a weird feeling or sometimes gets me anxious and snaps me right back into derealization . Anyone get that?

    I can totally sympathize with what you're going through sometimes I feel like I'm so out of my body that it scares me to drive that I'm not sure who's in control and where my mind is that it's a bad feeling and I understand how you feel I went through quite a few weeks of it and now for some reason I'm back to where I'm supposed to be but I wish you luck

      Oh you managed to get yourself back??? That's amazing did it just happen on its own? When I get on it lasts for weeks or months and sometimes I just forget how the real world is feel me so when I think I'm coming back it's too much for me to handle because I forgot what the real world is suppose to look like for me

    Hi Eduardo,

    Please excuse my ignorant self, but please decribe to me what it is, "derealization"? Is it the same as disscociating? Or does it have a differnet meaning? I can go look it up, but help me get into your head to see if I can understand better what it is you feel? I have disscociated, simplistically, it is like sorta kinda like amniesia (but not really) that comes and goes, that is why I was wondering/asking. 

    I sure get that feeling of overwhelmed by the world! I am in the US, elections have everyone's panties in a wad.  will be glad when this is over.
