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?

My bf has always told me that i avoid issues that bother me so i totally agree that alot of this could be down to not knowing how to deal with for the feeling that every thing is in your imagination i suffer from that too. i try think about my family and all that goes through my head is oh my god its all real and my body feels weird as if i am going to have a panic attack....its this that i dont understand because i so want to be here so why the hell would i now be scared of it all???? weird how these symptoms effect us...and how we can all give each other advice but seem to find it hard to follow ourselves :?
