> To craig,
> I relate to what you are saying about feelings of unreality. I know all too well what you are describing. For me when those feelings are present I feel it is as if everyone and everything in the entire world is operating & functioning in the world I used to know and try as hard as I can to become apart of that world that I used to function in, I just can't. It is as if I am looking into a window and everyone else is there by I am isolated & can not become main streamed with them. It is as if nothing is real.
> Is that how you feel? I am new to this bulletin board and was browsing and hope you receive this message. Take care and please reply!!!
> i posted a message on last months posts about a constant derealization/depersonalization feeling that i have constantly and have had for 1 year and 3 months. i am so tired all the time mentally and physically. for those of you that have never heard the term before, it is a feeling of unreality, like you are living in a waking dream. i would love some support and advice for dealing with this, along with some testimonials for those of you that experience this disorder, or forms of it. thank you very much, rene'
I have been living the same nightmare that some of you have described. Almost 3 years ago, like an idiot, I decided I would try to lose some weight by taking a relatives diet pills- big mistake! It ended 3 days later in an extreme panic attack on the highway- and a week or two later a constant state of derealization.
I have complained of the symptoms to general practitioners, pshychiatrists, pshycologists, counselors, and the like. No one has the answer. I feel as if I view life through a telescope- everything is distant and foggy and feel as if my vision is limited. My sense of hearing also seems to be affected a little. My memory has gotten worse and my sense of time has been lost.
I presently take Prozac (30mg daily) It has decreased my panic attacks to nearly none- but not much seems to help the derealization. I have been in therapy off and on since this occured but it doesn't affect the feelings either. Some of you said that other people notice that you may act weird. No one thinks I act any differently than when I wasn't complaining of this. They often think that I am "better"- unless I bring the subject up. It is very depressing to think about- I have stood in my bathroom at night crying and begging
God to cure me of this problem-( I know I'm really cheering y'all up!) But I refuse to give up hope- even though life doesn't seem real- I am going to live as if it did. I hope y'all can find some relief from your symptoms- I will pray for you.
