Has anybody had depersonalization?
I think that I am suffering from it but I think there is an underlying bodily cause and I am very scared as to what it might be.
I have been through alot of stress lately... alot of changes. I have also been sick so I am totally sure that stress has not helped my situation.
I feel as if I am not here... like what I am seeing right now is a movie I am watching in my head or something. I feel like the words that come out of my mouth when I talk aren't mine even though I know deep down they are. I feel like i am not controlling my bodily movements. It's so strange.
I also get these rushes like I am going to pass out or something bad is going to happen, even though it never does and I never pass out.
I have had a history of this feeling but I got it under control with Lexapro. I started to feel somewhat normal soon after taking it but still not all the way back to my completely self before I started getting the feelings.
I have been suffering from a chronic mystery illness that is flaring up again right now. I have had so much testing done it is a little ridiculous... and I have no life right now. I am 20 years old and should be having the time of my life right now in college and enjoying the summer but I can't because I have not felt well enough to drive or go anywhere. My mom has been driving me everywhere. I have not left the house except to go to the doctor. Once to the grocery store a month ago and I thought I was dying.
I'm scared! Does anybody have any experience with DP? How is it for you? What treatments have you found effective/ineffective and have they been associated with a disease you have or were they triggered by something that happened in your life? Or appeared on their own?
Any advice or help would be extremely appreciated.
