It's really hard I can't go to school or anywhere i am absolutely terrified.plz help me !

Yeah, I'm always wondering if this is a simulation or the meaning of the universe and these questions go on forever - they're unproductive and pointless, the only thing that matters is you and your happiness. You just need to get into the state where you're automatically living, I see DP as when you manually breathe - it disrupts your breathing because it's an automatic process you're not meant to know about it. Just forget about it, try your hardest to distract yourself and if it pulls you in more just relax and wait for it to pass and get out more.

We've just red pilled ourself into depression and anxiety, realistically, that's all DP is. Just existentialism.

Just work towards forgetting about it, live your life.

I've always been slightly existential as I was growing up, I would always ask things like "What's the point of weddings, they don't mean anything".

Use mindfulness, think about what to do now and next, set goals and tasks you want to achieve.

This is just my take on it.

Trust me, almost everyone with dpdr gets those exact same thoughts. Literally all of those have entered my mind and taken turns driving me further into the void of my mind. The panic they cause can be crippling. But i promise after a while they will start to fade.
I promise you exist. The fact you can think and are aware is proof enough. Me saying this may not instantly make you feel better. For me, it took a little while to realize everything exists as it always has. Ive felt the same where i dont feel the world around is real, that im imagining it or something or that its a dream. You will get over this eventually but i must stress that recovery is gradual and at times you can feel like youll never come out but you will. I know the anxiety is crippling but the more you get out and do stuff, the more it stimulates your mind to think more normally.
