I have had derealization for years and its never felt like this. I think I'm having a bad reaction to lexapro. I've been on in about 4 months so maybe it's just now starting to do something? Am I losing my mind? I'm lying here on the couch so scared and my boyfriend keeps telling me I'm not dying and I'm fine and he just went upstairs to sleep. I don't believe him because he doesn't feel what I'm feeling. This has been going on for hours and hours. When I sleep I have horrible nightmares so I don't want to fall asleep
I just had a similar situation... I had a huge episode 3 years back ended up getting better (took months) would have a quick few minutes of depersonilzation every now and then but lately it's been bad... Just now I was trying to fall asleep and boom full on depersonilazation and panic attack...i was going to go to the hospital but rememebered nothing was done the first time i went..i called my sister and calmed myself down..i still have it but the panic has subsided some.. Hope you are feeling better. (it does get better, i was almost dp/dr free for over 3 years)
