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?

so dont fret about it too much. try to put things into perspective. when you realize things for what they are then they arent so scary anymore. obsessing about it is futile.. youre just gonna give yourself a panic. thats the problem about obsessiveness.. you make mountians out of mole hills and everything gets distorted and unreal. whenever you start to think this way just tell 'it' to ... "F#CK OFF!" cause you KNOW youre real.. you KNOW everything is real. its obsessing about it thats the problem.
