Has anyone had this feeling before? Ever since DP/DR came back into my life, I feel like I'm overly conscious of the concept of existence and anything related to our world. Everytime I'm not focusing on work or a hobby, I'll instantly get triggered by looking at a wall or something else and feel like it doesn't make any sense, or feel like my arms or legs don't feel quite normal. As soon as this happens, a huge feeling of dread takes over my mind and forces me to lay down in my bed or I feel like I might just fall through the ground into oblivion...

 

Edit: The main problem is that back when I got DP/DR for the first time years ago, I felt the same symptoms but I didn't get overwhelmed with this dread sensation, now I do and it's ruining my life... I wonder if this is due to the new Covid-19 world we live in :S

Im pretty sure i know the feeling your talking about. It happens and it feels like things around me dont really exist, that i dont either and that realizing this would make me dissapear into thin air. Its absolutely terrifying. I take medication that has helped a bit. I also feel similar in the fact i have had this feeling before but i just kinda got over it and forgot about it and now it bothers me even more than before.

Yeah, it's just weird how we get it at first, then it goes away and when it comes back, we just don't know how to deal with it... One would think that human beings learn how to deal with something after overcoming it right? Also, let me know if you have any tips on how to 'come back down to earth' when this happens :)

Yeah that's everyone, DP makes you think too hard and makes you notice everything too much.
