I’m just very confused and have been lurking on this site for a while now and although I’ve experienced some of what others have I’ve never related closely to anyone’s symptoms. For instance I believe that I only have derealization. Or primarily derealization. I can feel that I am myself and can slightly feel the people around me just not as much as I used to. I can feel love for my girlfriend and for my family but things just don’t look right. When this began I was extremely physically anxious however I was able to function. Now the anxiety has lifted somewhat although I’m still scared I’ll feel like this forever. Even though the anxiety has become less persistent the visual disconnect from the rest of the world isn’t still just as persistent. Hopefully someone can tell me if this sounds like the process in recovery or if it is a good sign.

Things don’t look right in the sense that they look almost flat. It feels like I’m just not getting as strong an emotional response. I’m still very worried about my condition and obsessing over the 24/7 feeling but the physical anxiety I used to experience isn’t present.

Also I didn't do much besides going to class and working and hanging out with my friends. At the onset of this I had almost no emotion and although some of it has returned my visual perception has remained the same and time seems to fly by still.

I would say that the fact that you're able to feel something towards other is a sign of getting better.

Personally, I could lessen most of the symptoms to a great degree except for the visual strangeness and distance you describe. I feel like this where we need doctors' help the most.

Really, find yourself a psychiatrist you'd do yourself a huge favor and possibly do scans to rule out any physical causes.
