I too suffer from depersonalization, but more derealization ever since I had my first panic attack in July. And ever since then, I haven't been the same. One thing that you have to remember is that DP/DR is an off shoot from anxiety and it is NOT an indication of you loosing control nor is it a indication of you going crazy, so you shouldn't be frightened from the feeling. I know exactly how you feel. You probably look at yourself in the mirror and you sort of don't even recognize yourself. It is hands down the worst symptom of anxiety, but you have to realize that the feeling is harmless and it will eventually go away. The reason you probably get this feeling is because you spend a lot of your time wondering what is wrong with you and you are essentially putting your brain through so much stress, so you get this feeling. Think of it as your brain trying to cope with the stress. You can get rid of your DP by simply just not thinking about it. DP/DR only progress if you think about it- because you think about it, you are giving the thought more power... if that makes sense. If you stop thinking about your DP (easier said than done) the feeling will eventually go away. When you feel depersonalized, tell yourself that it is just anxiety and that the feeling is completely harmless. Tell yourself that the feeling will eventually go away. Try to snap out of it by doing normal stuff that make you feel "real". Go for a run, cook something, try to distract yourself with something to do. All the best to you! And just know that this is just anxiety and this feeling will go away soon!
