Hey Portage,

I'm sorry you're going through this, I know how unsettling it is. I used to have this, and from time to time when something really disturbing happens, I get it again. If you can practice grounding techniques of some type it might help. I used to not trust my senses, and I had to learn to trust them, which is what ultimately helped me. Other than that, I'm not sure what to tell you. Are you in therapy? Sounds like some good techniques could come from a really good CBT counselor.
