I am really glad I found this website as it makes me feel like I am not alone in feeling depressed and anxious. For the last month or so I have been feeling really weird and not myself. I feel like I am in a dream, not in the real world. I looked up these feelings online and came across something called depersonalization which I believe I have been experiencing. I'm just wondering if anybody else has been feeling this and what they have done. I'm a 27 year old female. It says online it usually is just brief but I have had it for a month or so now and it is awful. I was off work for 3 months and the first month and a half or so were fine but after that is when I started feeling this way. Ive been feeling it ever since. When I looked it up online it says it is usually for a brief period of time but mine is not. Also the last 2 weeks Ive been having real sensitivity to light, not just fluorescent light either, I had my eyes checked and they are fine. I figured I was feeling this way from not working, feeling isolated and just not being social like I used to, but after being back to work for a week now, I still feel the same way....weird! I try and explain it to my husband and he has been extremely supportive but I just feel like he does not understand and how could he if he hasn't felt this way. Is there anyone that understands what I am going through and has gone through this themselves, what have you done? I am hesitating going to the doctor and being put on medication, especially since I thought it would go away once I got back to work and socializing on a regular basis in a routine again but it has definitely not, and scares me!
