I really feel crazy and very sick right now. I don't want to go to the hospital but i will if im in danger. Any tips? My sleep schedule has been bad lately and today I just started feeling weirder and weirder so I thought more sleep would help, then I woke up and felt insane. By delirious I mean intense dpdr, dizziness, can't understand what's going on around me, everything seems wrong and I think I'm going to die. Sorry if this is all a scrambled nonsense.

I've been there too. I don't exactly know what you mean about sick, but everything else you described I would say is dpdr related. Having a bad sleep schedule definitely adds onto the feeling of dpdr, for me at least my worst days have been after a bad night of sleep.

When I have a difficult time sleeping because of these feelings, I'll wake up in the middle of the night completely helpless of how weird I feel. Things exist, but at the same time they don't. I lose the feeling of my body and I feel as if I'm still dreaming. And a bunch of dizziness as well.

I honestly have no other advice other than trying to improve your sleep schedule, as well as focusing on getting good quality sleep. Now I don't know what you mean about being sick and "going to die", but to me my feelings of dying usually is a sensation of disappearing into thin air.
I just want to assure you that there's nothing wrong with you. I know it's hard to believe, as I said I've been there. But unless there's something physically wrong, which I doubt there is, these are all just symptoms of dpdr. And they're all more noticeable when we're sleepy and tired, it just makes everything more confusing and harder to control.

Hope you'll feel better soon!:)

Read this as, "Im feeling delicious"

You mean you took a nap? Yeah thatll mess you up a bit. I think the dizziness is definitely a symptom of anxiety. And im sure the anxiety is feeding the DPDR. You are not going to die don't worry. Are you on medication?

i feel this a lot. My DPDR is definitely 24/7 but when i wake up in the middle of the night, its like i completely lose grip on how to cope with the dpdr and i spiral for a good 5-10 min before i somewhat calm myself back down enough to go back to sleep and this is happening 2-3 times a night EVERY night. Nice to know im not alone.
