Today and yesterday have defiantly been bad days.. I was okay until i got out the cinema i dont know what it was but i felt like i was tripping again from the time i smoked weed.. I dont know if its just me but has anyone else felt 10 times worse coming out of the cinema? I literally felt as if i wasnt there at all and i was hearing people talk to me but i diddnt know if i was really there.

Today i havnt even been able to go to work because i feel so bad this depersonilization is driving me crazy! I want to start cognitive therapy can anyone tell me if that's a good idea and what kind of techniques i can use to control my panic?

I am also having an MRI scan soon as i have convinced myself that i have a brain tumour... Stupid i know but seeing my mum go through it has had a real big impact on me:(

I feel so much worse coming out of a movie theater. My DP actually becomes terrible in the middle of the movie and then when I walk out of the darkness it's even worse. I'm not sure why this happens but I definitely relate. I also had an MRI which showed nothing. DP sucks

Yea that makes sense that the movies was hard to enjoy because of your dp i remember times when it was just hard going to the store and back and chances u have a tumor are so slim although there have been studies that if a tumor is in the certain part of the brain it can cause dissociation/ depersonalization but that is very unlikely (not trying to scare you cause you probably dont have 1) but that is a possibility. I advice you to see if there was something that could have caused your dp not the weed the underlying cause like a stressful time in your life that was traumatic etc. Cause ive found that once i become aware of mine my dp starts to vanish and i feel like the old person i was 2 years ago.
Hey there has been a stressfull time in my life since my mum has become very ill with another brain tumour but i just dont think that this would have caused dp! I am so scared that i have a brain tumour its actually making me miserable
