derealization
« on: March 09, 2014, 01:51:54 AM »
I keep getting waves of derealization and I'm exactly sure to make it go away. I've been feeling like this for a few hours now on and off and it just makes me go into a panic because I'll feel as if I'm going to go crazy and I wont ever feel better and I'll just be stuck in this state of derealization forever.
Does anyone have any advice on how to get rid of this? Or any stories about how you've been through this/how long it lasted for you?
Thank you in advance. I hope I posted this in the right thread because usually I'm over in the Hypochondria thread.

There is no magic cure for derealization. What happens is we become so used to it that it actually stops bothering us. Once this happens it simply vanishes by itself. I used to get it a lot when my anxiety was new to me. It was frightening at times. I might be out. Come home. Forget I was ever out. Have no memory of it at all. But I simply got used to it. To the point were it just vanished by itself. You could try various distraction methods. To keep your mind focused on things around you. Stop you from drifting. It is just another anxiety symptom.

I try to make myself be in the moment when this happens. Like I'll think or tell myself what I'm doing. Ok, I'm walking up the stairs or I'm taking a shower. Washing my hair, etc. You could try something like that. Or basically just try to go about your day and not focus on the derealization feeling.
