DP and panic attacks

620 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Sojourner
I just freaked out and threw my book across the room. I guess I thought that would snap me out of my panic. It didn't. And now my boyfriend must really think I'm strange. At least I didn't scream like I have in the past.

This sucks. How can I prevent this? I mean I was reading and then the unreality just enveloped me. My therapist says my thoughts create the DP. Well that just doesn't seem to be the case. It just comes out of nowhere and there's no stopping it.

Does anyone else's DP peak into panic attacks? How do you deal with it?

I hope I don't sound too crazy.

Thanks for the replies. Sojourner... I know what you are trying to say. My therapist says the same thing. Basically if you are having a feeling you can't be DPd... but this doesn't make sense to me. Cuz during these attacks my DP and my fear are both at 10. Seems that way anyway.
