I am scared!!

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm scared of the world, walking on it because it feels weird. Is it normal for DP/DR? I want to live normal life.

    Absolutely normal. I've been through it all and only started to feel normal again from it. You will get there! I have felt soo many weird sensations and thoughts from it where I didn't recognise my parents, they looked completely alien to me. Everything around me was so rich and overwhelming that my mind was too frazzled to take it all in. But it does get better, but it's all about diversion and distraction!

      No I didn't. Initially I took fluxotene, an anti depressant which didn't help in any way.

      Unfortunately medication won't cure this. Anxiety is a behavioural habit, so medication won't work. It's like taking medication to stop learning to drive, they're all habits.

      Medication can short term aid anxiety such as diazapem but are easily depended on and will only cover up the anxiety instead of curing it, if that makes sense?

      I've felt like this so many times. The lighting is too bright, everything looks so odd and alien. I've stared at objects and focused so much, they start to move, it's all anxiety. When you worry about something, it gets distorted if you think about it, such as our reality.
