    Hi there guys :) Due to DR and accompanying brain fog, it's very difficult to engage my brain and concentrate well enough to write and explain myself easily at the moment, but I will do my best! I've had derealization/brain fog for almost 6 years now. This all began when I was diagnosed with...

    Okay well, I've been thinking about my anxiety a lot lately. I know it's a major problem of mine and the true culprit behind all these weird sensations. My question to you all is what causes the anxiety. I've heard a lot of people say it's overactive nerves. But what causes the sensitivity...
