In Topic: Feel like I don't have bad dp anymore . but I am not as happy as I thought?

Do any of you still get spells of DR? I've had them last couple of days in work maybe on the milder scale than before. I'm not sure if it's because I'm eating a big meal or if it's going outside afterwards and being in the direct sunlight without shades on. But when I come back inside my work building I feel a bit disorientated for a while. Like I've been up all night and I'm running on caffeine and I have a little dizziness to accompany it. Most of the time I feel 99% though so I TRY not to let it get me down. I definitely feel sleepy after it so I know tiredness is a contributing factor.

 

I definitely think it's the sunlight causing sensory overload coupled with not enough sleep. I think back to this time last year when my DP/DR started and wonder how the fuck I ever got in this mess to begin with.

Yesterday I had to work and had been out drinking the night before so was really tired when I woke up. When I went outside walking around looking for a Starbucks open I had bad DR and it was scary. I didn't freak out though cause I knew I was tired and low and behold after a good sleep I was back at work today and felt 100% better.

I wonder how long this shit is going to stick around for? I feel like I should cut down on my drinking and get more sleep because it definitely isn't helping my recovery. I've been very anxious about my heart too, after a heavy night drinking, I've started to get the odd skipped heartbeat too which freaks me out and almost gives me a panic attack. It's so hard though, it's like I need it at the end of the week after suffering feeling like this.

I think we are on the right track. We just need to ride it out. Time is a healer.

I don't have an issue with sleeping but I tend to go to sleep around 11:30pm and wake up at 6.30am for work, this is a good nights sleep for me. If I don't get around 7 hours, I will definitely have more chance of having DR for most of the day. Being tired definitely makes it worse

I can Relate to it 100%
I've been fcing Derealization for 7 months. I feel im at 90% great sometimes at 95% then relapse to 70% but from 2 weeks stuck at 90%. When i wake up i feel fine great and fresh like i used to before DR. I go outside do my work have fun with friends and Talk to them for hours face to face without feelings of DR (i am serious)But when the time passes and the night time comes then i feel myself The episodes of DR AND I USED TO THINK THAT I WILL BE LIKE THIS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE ETC ETC
BUT THEN AGAIN THE NEXT DAY IS A NEW DAY AND I GEEL FRESH AND AGAIN THE NIGHT TIME SUCKS.
I think our brain feels tired and again the defense mechanism starts (DR) by the brain.
When i sat 90%
It means i feel there os something missing all the time in the background but i dnt have now the bad Thoughts and Checking up the heart beats and Overthinking feelings.

Yea if my DR isn't affecting me something else is and it's always a fear of my heart. I'm 31 and in the last year I've had several ekgs, a stress test, been to the cardiologist etc and they say I'm fine but the worry is always still there. It's like if I get a good day with little to no DR, something else is making me anxious. It probably indicates that my anxiety is feeding my DR. I've made good progress managing my anxiety over the last few months and I'm almost positive that what's made the DR fade since my DR wasn't brought on by taking drugs.
