A psychotic wouldn't write a post about becoming psychotic as they are unaware of their loss of reality testing and they are in a psychosis. You are not psychotic but like have very high level of anxiety and dissociation. A model for depersonalisation as e kind of mental hypochondria was once considered as it can be a cental element in the disorders to have this high levels of anxiety and think you are to becoming psychotic and losing control. It is a "normal" part of depersonalisation to have this. Try it you can get some clonazepam and some anti-dresssent to get these anxiety levels down and get some sleep.Clonazepam is the preferred benzo for depersonalisation.

Do you really believe that nothing is real or are you mainly worried that you are going psychotic? Are you having any other delusions or hallucinations? If not then it sounds like dp/dr. It's ok to question if anything is real when the dp/dr makes you feel like that. Don't let yourself worry about it though. Try and accept it if you can. You have a label for it - dp/dr. It's there because of high anxiety, cutting off emotion so that you don't feel anything anymore so you can simply survive without having a complete meltdown. You'll be ok. Whatever it is that you think is causing you to feel like this, try and address it the best you can.

Sounds like plain anxiety towards dpdr to me. Severe anxiety yes. No psychotic events, they are very different. I'v had all these thoughts before you're talking about and I think most people had them who entered a level of more severe dpdr.

Ask for some benzo's or consider an AD. Try breathing exercises or Yoga. Just make sure to distract yourself as much as possible, and you will eventually calm down. No need to worry.

It sounds like maybe you could use some help in person. That's pretty high anxiety, if you're suddenly afraid of your parents and all other people.
I had the worst anxiety and panic in my whole life last weekend ....a few days later I will okay now especially after having talked to my doc

Hmm yes, talking to a professional can help calm you down. They give some reassurance that things will be okay and that they have seen similar cases which turned out fine eventually (some cases even far far worse).

What happened Psyborg? I thought you were doing better? Well, be at ease with the fact that dpdr fluctuates in severity. I'v had episodes where I couldnt possibly imagine to feel even slightly better, and all of a sudden I feel "better" when I don't even expect it. But I think you already know that as it seems you are going through horrible episodes aswell.

I do feel better especially when it comes to dp/dr but I had horrible health anxiety triggered from an idiotic doctor who didnt watch his words towards me

Hi Pasha.

I just want you to know your not alone. Ive had the same thought: thinking everything and everyone around me was something i made up or imagined. In fact, theres lots of people who have on here.
Heres the thing: things happening around you are way too unpredictable and somewhat random for it to be completely imagined by you. Think about it, theres many things going on that you probably hate right? Why would you imagine things you hate? Theres so many things happening that are due to other people and forces besides you. If you were just imagining it, then if you just now became aware of it, you would be able to change things with your mind right? But you cant, because its not unreal or imagined.

Dont worry, your not the only consciousness in existence, your not alone. :)
