Feeling as if I made up everything around me....

I've been suffering from DP/DR for about 2 months. Lately I've developed these crazy thoughts that maybe I made up everything around me.. that my parents, friends, buildings etc. are all just a figment of my imagination and nothing is real... is this normal? Is this a symptom of DP/DR? How do we get over it? Do we accept the thoughts (I've been reading Claire Weekes' books) and try to focus more on the outside world or do we analyze and fight them?

That makes perfect sense Tidal. As for the fear that everything is a figment of your imagination, read Janines e book at the top of the discussion board and it mentions that dp people harbor a secret fear that all of this is just constructs of our imagination. I've had these thoughts. Not lately though. It comes and goes but is most severe when I'm having a bad attack of derealization. It doesn't mean your crazy. It just means you're a normal person trying to make sense of how you're feeling ie. dissociation.
