Hi all,

I am new here and I really need some help and positive feedback that I can get out of this state.

Basically,about 7 weeks ago I went out and mixed a lot of alcohol, drugs and all, I went home and smoked and probably smoked too much...

I started having massive panic attacks and just felt extremely weird. I though if gave it a few days it would go away.. it really did not.

I started sweating all the time from my hands and feet, felt like a dream state all the time and could not do anything anymore.

A few days after, as I was very worried I went to see my GP and a psychiatrist and the psychiatrist told me this was DP. I am seeing her very regularly and I hope it will help.

My GP also advise me to go on SSRI so I have been on it for almost 3 weeks now, I am starting to see some improvement but very small. I know this will not go away over night, but some days I just feel awful, worse than usual.

I have never and anxiety or any panic attacks before this, this is all very new to me, I am trying to be strong and tell myself that this is all going to go away at some point, I just need to be patient.

I basically feel weird all the time, I have headaches, I feel like I am living in a dream state, I am speaking to my friends and family but sometimes when I look at them, I don't feel like they are here, when I go out, everything looks different and weird, the lights, the people, my house, my phone, everything changed.

I do have now a few moments during the day when I am almost out of it, it usually only last for a couple of hours, but these moments are the best, I feel like it's going away, I then go to bed, but everytime I wake up, it's back again.

I have stopped going to work because it because unbearable, I am going back next week because I think going back to my normal life might help.

I have stopped smoking, drugs , caffeine and alcohol completely ever since, trying to eat healthy, exercising.

But it's still here, it never goes away, I think the problem is that I keep obsessing about it and google it every day which probably doesn't help, but I can't help myself, finding similar stories than mine with people who completely got out of it really helps me not to lose hope.

Did anyone here had the same experience as me? Any feedback would be massively appreciated.

Thank you all.
