It's like the world is melting all around me and I'm about to fall into space or into the sky. It feels like nothing is tethered to anything and I and everything else am just free falling through the universe. It's the weirdest and scariest feeling I have ever felt. I went to the hospital last night and they took my blood and discharged me. Medication is not helping this feeling at all, even xanax. As I'm typing this I feel like the room I'm in is spinning around in space and there is absolutely nothing concrete about it. This is an absolutely unbearable feeling. I want to go to the hospital again but I am too scared to go outside because of how hellish everything looks.

this sounds really serious, maybe you should call an ambulance if you really cant go out, and have the doctors keep an eye on you until this feeling goes away.
i'm sorry if this isn't of much help

You've just completely described how my experience has been at it's worst, and how I've often felt. It is truly horrible :( I wish I could give you a quick fix, but I think it's been a combination of things that helped bring down the panic. Sometimes distraction, a lot of supportive self-talk and reasoning, "nothing actually happened etc," simple relaxation techniques and a few supplements like ashwagandha.

Hi Lulu, how are you feeling today? I remember going through a phase of being scared to go outside. Walking into town last year feeling like I was about to fall into a non-reality black hole. The feelings and sensations of dpdr are many and rediculous. But most importantly, they are temporary

good good. It's the craziest and hardest thing to accept that there's nothing actually wrong with you when you're dp'd but it's true. No one ever went truly mad from dp

I'd suggest you to look into Harris Harrington's program. I know lots of people seem to dislike him here but I personally agree that DP for most people is the result of accumulated trauma. You also can read his free articles and look up videos on Youtube.

Stay strong, Lulu!

The things you describe are completely normal in the realm of anxiety, as others in this post have confirmed. The important thing is you’ve been looked at by medical personnel and have been disecharged ruling out any underlying physiological conditions - meaning it’s all in your head - but your head is pretty powerful and can manifest things physiologically which is why the nightmare seems so real. Rest assured it is temporary and you will need to continue being brave and weather the storm for a bit longer until it subsides (if it hadn’t already.) Even your chosen profile name indicates you’re intelligent and still human. :). You’ll be stronger when you come out the other side, and if you need help myself and everyone here are at your disposal.
