Feeling like everything is spiraling downward, in a numbed sense

I have been getting severe panic attacks. I am shaking on the daily. This has nothing to do with depersonalization, but, it VERY much makes my depersonalization way worse. It's hard to cope, hard to grasp a sense of self, and so on. I can't quite feel real, I only feel when I get these panic attacks (which has been every day for a week now.) But other than that, I am numbed entirely.

I try to distract myself, nothing works. It's seemingly impossible. I thought maybe my dp would ease, but it's not easing at all. Anyone else like this?

Also edit: it's very hard to fight the battle of thinking I am crazy, or not crazy. I always assume I am turning crazy. And then I worry if I am. And sometimes I can't properly make sense of the words I am speaking, hearing. The actions I witness.
You're not going crazy! Depersonalization is an anxiety-induced/depression-induced state of thought and it's nothing to be afraid. Do you know what brought you to this state? I mean, have you figured out what made you depersonalized?
Indeed, I do. But as years went on it got worse, due to other situations which threw me off and made me lose my sense of self entirely. Thanks for the assurance, though.

Well, if you ever need someone to talk to about it, my message box is always open. I'd love to help you get out of this rut - if you need anything, just message. Depersonalization is temporary, so I wouldn't worry too much.
Thanks. I keep to myself, though. I just visit this forum solely for the purpose of seeking answers and help from others. But thanks anyway.
I was just extending myself - I was the same way, but opening up really helped me. Anyway, I hope you get the answers you're looking for and the help you need - cheers! Best of luck.
Which is very polite, so thanks again. I really only ever open up to one individual in my life, and a couple of my friends. Best of luck to you, too.
