hi, i was so close to recovery at one point , but now i feel worse than ever .
does anyone feel like this
i feel like i just exist
like my thoughts are not my thoughts
everything scares me
i think who am i and get scared
thinking itself seems so weird to me
i feel trapped
everything that makes us human seems scary and strange
i feel as tho i just have a awareness

is this dp or what because ive had dp before and from what i remember of it it was just a strang feeling of feeling outside of myself but now i seem to have all these weird thoughts feelings like something really bad is about to happen like
hallucinating or like reality is about to fall apart .
the worst thing is i cant think myself into feeling better before i could just say myself that its just dp/dr and its harmless but now i cant even think without thinking who thought that and how did i think it etc.

is it just dp or could i be developing some other mental illness ??
because i dont panic or have any physical feelings like shakking sweating etc?>
so could it be anxiety even without physical syptoms?? and dp/dr without physical feelings??
thanks for reading any help would be highly appreciated

Yep, DP/DR has many different symptoms and presentations. The feelings you just described are very common. But yes - they add the extra twist on of making you unable to reassure yourself with thoughts because your mind is now telling you that you don't know where your thoughts come from or if they are even yours.

DP/DR and anxiety are very tricky like this - your mind always finds ways to terrify you and to take away the things that were able to comfort you in the past. But you have to stop focusing on your thoughts - stop analyzing if they 'feel' like yours and so on. It is very difficult, but you have to focus away and just think. Don't think about thinking - its a mental trap that will get worse and worse the more you do it.

Things will get better, and there is nothing wrong with you.
