Hello all,
I'm very happy to have stumbled upon this support site/group. I've experienced and lived with DP for 37 yrs and until recently I thought I was the "only" person on earth that felt like this. I have a lot to share but just wanted to introduce myself as I have never shared my thoughts and experiences with any other person before. I'm happy to know this is a "real" forum with others real experiences!!

Take care

Welcome! I hope you find what your looking for here. There aren't many answers with DP unfortunately, but that does mean theres plenty to discuss lol.
I first started experiencing symptoms of feeling weird not myself. I felt this way after I had been drinking wine for the first time!! Over time, it progressed to what I thought were panic attacks feeling "detached" from myself, not in my body, Like I wasn't real. It was and is the scariest feeling!!
I am constantly aware that it could happen at any given moment so I’m always thinking about it.
I don’t actually feel detached it’s more the fear of feeling unreal or detached if that makes sense!!
Funny you mention seizures because my daughter has a benign focal seizure disorder.
I’m pretty sure you misunderstood what I was saying. Let me explain. I don't always feel detached but, DO experience the “fear“ of the feelings I’ve experienced when I feel/felt detached!! I know all to well what it feels like,so, I’m constantly aware of the possibility of it happening!! Hope this helps.
