    I keep having extremely existential thoughts like the following: - I think about how the universe can even exist - I think about how weird it is we're living on a rock in space - I think about how it's weird we exist and are conscious - I get scared of the idea of eternity - I've also been...

    I'm a 35 year old male and I've had OCD my entire life. My OCD has taken on many forms since I was a child, starting with the classic germ/handwashing stuff, then counting, then certain words were good or bad, and at some point in high school it turned into religious OCD, having to say certain...

    Please don't say "just accept it." I can't accept this. Do not read if your depersonalized right now, or sensitive to these things trigger warning I'm begging you not to. Please recovered people only. I'm in a panic all the time, the worst part is that the dp is over. I just have this obsessive...

    Hi, I've had DP/DR since 2015 and whilst the physical symptoms have gone and I do feel more connections to people, I still get existential questions. My question is: how can I be at peace with them? I know there's not answer to them and I have to accept that, but how? Has anyone else who had...

    I could probably write a book at this point but I will attempt to be as concise as is humanly possible. Lets get the important stuff out of the way: -I got this from a panic attack while smoking weed -I developed a panic disorder over the following month -I'm 24 and am graduating college on...

    Hi, I first got DP/DR in 2015 and I've been dealing with the existential stuff ever since. Whilst I don't have physical symptoms anymore (unless I'm really anxious) I still get get anxious about existential thoughts. I know everyone gets them and that it's normal, but most people can just brush...

    When I first started suffering with DP/DR its was pretty bad. My vision was weird, I had panic attacks, I was emotionally numb, and I was questioning everything. It's a lot better now, but I still suffer with t every now and then. My question is: is it truly possible to actually FULLY recover...

    Hey, I've been suffering with DP and DR since about 2015. It's better than it used to be in the beginning, but back then I would obsess over existential thoughts and they'd fill me with doubts and make me feel anxious. I'm better at ignoring them now, but I don't feel truly over them. They made...

    Hi, How do o stop the existential thoughts? And when I do get them how do I stop being scared of them and over analysing them constantly? I have OCD so I tend to overthink and I don't feel satisfied until I'm 100% sure about something which, obviously when it comes to existential thoughts, you...

    For a while I've been plagued with the thought that for some reason, spontaneously, the world I am observing and living in will slip away and I will either A) Fall into an abyss of pure nothingness and blackness and spend eternity in this isolated hell or B) I will just die and lose all...

    Hello everyone, Chris again. I posted earlier today because of the same problem I currently have, which is this terrible terrifying existential crisis I'm going through at the moment. I have never felt so terribly derealized and detatched from the world than I have before and I'm scared that...

    Hello everyone. To be honest I've never written on a forum before and I'm not really sure what to write really. All I know is that about an hour ago I had the scariest existential terror episode attack (there's probably a more proper phrase describing this but for a lack of better words I'm...
