I have had severe episodes of dissociating and I totally get it. Like peering out of your own body and perception is distorted. My hearing seems to change so things sound like echos. It used to scare me when I was young and I didn't know what it was. It was like I was a little person standing behind my eyeballs peering out at the world - but it wasn't really my body. Weird sensation.

What I found to be the most useful when I get like that is to go outside and be near nature, trees, birds chirping, flowers, etc. (and where you can be alone). I've even sat down in my back yard and run my fingers in the dirt and grass. There something about the smells of earth that I find soothing and help get me grounded again.

Hope you find it useful. Good luck.
