Hello everyone, my name's Ivan and I have existential OCD ( I really struggle with the concept of the world being fake/others not being real or conscious) . Last night, I totally freaked out and had a gigantic crisis. It's like I had the realization that I was stuck in this world and had to get out. I've been depressed for a while, and I'm thinking that it could've contributed to me feeling so sick. I don't know, living totally freaks me out. I just can't think of reality the same way anymore. I feel like I'm doomed to think that EVERYTHING is fake.
Even my own existence is weird, I can't process it at times.
I'm alive right now, and I can't accept it because I don't know the reason, and I don't know what the point of all of this is.
How do I find the motivation to go on and do things? How can I accept that it all could be fake and get my life back?

Know that your are not alone with it as I have very similar thoughts and feelings. But I can't offer you a proper solution unfortunately. Maybe there are others who are able to contribute more then me?

Many people struggle with solipsism. Let me ask you, what exactly do you mean by "fake"?
