Take a deep breath, then another.

I think everyone on this site can attest to how bad Depersonalization can really get, but the best thing to do is to relax right now. Depersonalization is a strong disorder, one that can affect many features of your life. It's true that sometimes they can distressing, but that doesn't change the severity of them in terms of your health. Comprehension, I'd be willing to bet, is one of the first things people notice as a more irritating symptom. Suddenly you've forgotten everything: how to read, how to write, how to talk, etc. I know I go through these problems when my unreality hits; it's difficult to digest the information on a book's page or to speak without a million words spilling out of your mouth at once.

This is a very common symptom of Depersonalization, so try not to worry so much. Unless you're suffering from severe physical problems, then I would suggest calmly killing time until your father wakes up. That way, you can lower your anxieties and not cause any unwanted panic while you're going through such a difficult experience. If you need someone to talk to, my inbox is open and the forums are open as well, post as much as you'd like. Just try to remain relaxed, take a few deep breaths, and wait for awhile.

You're going to be okay.
