For a few months now I've been having derealization. It goes away when I'm very busy or out with friends, but it's triggered very different lighting (such as evening when the sun is setting and very dim, yellowish lighting indoors). Sometimes I have it at other times too, like in the mornings. Everything looks & feels very unfamiliar, much like I'm visiting someone's house that I've been to before but am not totally comfortable in, you know? It's very strange. It also brings some existential thoughts and fears, such as "why do I have to search for a normal everyday job that won't be very fulfilling" and "life is so weird, why don't normal people think of these things?" Stuff like that. It doesn't make me sad or depressed or anything, but it makes me question my ability to handle everyday things (even though I deal with college full time and a part time job with relatively no stress). Sometimes it just makes me feel weird & different in a way I can't describe! It's kind of the feeling you get when you're driving through a new city or town. It's mostly just annoying and sometimes I catch myself being easily irritated. It's hard to picture my future too because I don't want to picture myself in uncomfortable situations down the road, still dealing with these anxiety issues. I know it's all just anxiety trying to trick me. I also know the more you ignore derealization, the less power it has, but I did it hard to ignore. I still go about my normal daily activities but it still lingers.
Does anyone else deal with this or have any tips/tricks to make it go away? Other than these issues, I'm relatively anxiety-free so I feel like I'm on the brink of getting rid of it, but I just want these little things to go away so I can be care- and worry-free! I'm scared it'll get worse or make me depressed and that's exactly what I don't want because I love life and try to enjoy it every day. I've heard Omega 3's can help a lot with derealization, has anyone tried those? Thanks in advance!
