I remember walking to work or going anywhere, Id be soo scarred, Id feel that im going to faint on the street. Also my vision was so weird, as if i was seeing through a glass. Im not sure if you have the same.. I literally would run home cuz thats where i would feel safe and iwouldnt have the dpdr attacks. While taking metro/buses i would close my eyes cuz i was just terrified of looking anywhere, the surrounding was so unreal- i thought i was losing it. I couldnt even explain to others what i feel.
At night when i would try to fall asleep, my thoughts were running like crazy in my mind, I thought i was in alice in wonderland. I would like im fallin through an invisible hole somewhere so i would open my eyes and hear my heart beat, i was afraid to fall asleep.
I have never felt like this before but after doing so much research, I came to a conclusion that it has to be anxiety that has caused this. With insomnia it made things worse. The most important thing is to believe that this is just a temporary state, and it ll eventually go away. Keep telling your mind its normal and that u hust having anxiety and it ll go away. Its hard but u must convince urself. If you going to think its more severe you will make your anxiety much worse and it be a vicious cycle.
Once anxiety levels are lower, the dpdr will start to fade away. you gotta stay positive!
