Hey Renee,

I am 36 years old, and the fogginess started about 5 years ago. I can not take medication as it makes the fog much worse. That is the reason I think it may come from some kind of illness. Not only that but little things have also changed, such as my hair is vey dry and has thinned quite a lot in the last year, and my skin has lost its sheen and luster. I also retain a lot of fluid. I am admittedly very depressed, but who wouldn't be if they had to experience this everyday of their lives. I have gone back to school and am currently working on a programming degree, and I can say that that has been a bit of a struggle. If I had done this 5 years ago, I think I could have done it with much fewer problems. It also helps me to know that I am not the only one who experiences this, and it is also very embarrassing for me. Other people do notice, and I have been accused of doing drugs and the like. This does nothing for my self-esteem. It has also strengthened my faith, and I know that I could not get through one day without divine strength to draw on.

> hey cass and sharon, i love that i have found people that understand what it is that i am feeling and can sympathize to what an extremely horrible experience this is. to answer a few questions. my derealization is constant, unless i am asleep and has been for 1 year and 3 months. i have not had a history of abuse in my family but my EX-boyfriend of 4 years mentally and emotionally abused me for most of the time and hit me towards the end of the relationship, that is when i ended it. i have a little bit of a hard time focusing on what i am doing, but i just graduated from college, so for the last year, i have had to reteach myself how to focus and concentrate on what is going on around me, especially in my lectures. i have pretty much learned to have very strong faith in God and believe that this will go away, but there are still days that i feel there is no hope and want to lay in bed until the next day comes. okay a few questions for ya'll. how old are you guys? i am 22 and live in dallas. i would love to talk to you guys if you live in the area, i have so desperatly wanted for the past couple of months to find some friends that understand what is going on. how long have you all had this "feeling"? me, 1.3 years. are you all taking any medications? me, celexa 30mg/day. reply soon, i will check the thread tomorrow, july 4th. thanks again you guys. Rene'
