Hi! I started to feel the synthoms some years ago, and it was horrible.
I had some trouble with physical touch, and after someone touch me, I started to feel like I was disappearing. Not my body, but like... my personality, my soul, my mind.
I started to feel like I was beinging consumed for the essence of the other people and this thing started to come over me and take myself away
IT'S HORRIBLE! I STARTED TO FEEL LIKE I WAS GONE
Them, to stop this, my brain created a easy way out: self harm
I started to scratch the parts of my body that was touch till I feel it was gone
I could like... feel this essence of myselg and otherself in places and stuff
I first though it was OCD, but deep inside I knew it wasn't all that.

Then I started therapy and my psycholigist said it was a kind of Despersonalization, and it was kind of a Obsessive Disorder too but it wasn't Compulsive.

I couldn't tell if it was right, and I never had an episode of Desrealization I guess. At somepoint I felt like I was not real but I don't felt like it was strong enough to be an Desrealization episode.

Anyone felt something close to that? I never saw something like this in DP

I'm just here to make sure you're okay. I personally haven't felt anything like what you have felt and I hope this stuff slips your mind. I've tried to end my life in the past. But I can tell you others on here know what you're going through and I swear they will help when they get online. Please don't feel the need to hurt yourself anymore as you will receive help here, just bare with the community.

Thanks! I'm way better after I started therapy!
My episodes now are less frequent and just happens when I'm concerned or with people I don't feel myself confortable with and in moments of extreme anxiety

But still triggers my mind not knowing anyone who had something specific like this.
