Hi everyone I’m Bella , I used to be really active and love going places and doing things now I have really bad anxiety after having a really bad panic attack that came out of no where. So I started feeling like I was gonna have one everytime I went into my car so I kept trying to get out of the house daily which made my anxiety spiral on how to help myself it wasn’t constant the depersonalization, but now it is and has been for like 2 months, I start thinking about the stuff I did today and it takes me a long time to remember what I did and it freaks me out I hate looking at myself … anyone else experience anything like this ? My doctor put me on Sertraline 25 mg but I’ve only been taking half of it daily because I’m scared it will make these feelings worse

Hi Bella, I definitely understand how you feel. Depersonalization is not something that can only be caused by trauma or depression. It is really common to happen after prolonged stress and this is the vicious cycle that seems you have fallen into. I started experiencing dp kinda the same way. I was an outgoing person too and trust me, this disorder can affect everyone. I'm also on meds, I take Ladose (similar to Prozac), 30mg for like a month and I was on celexa for 3 weeks but after experiencing bad side effects I changed it. To my view, Zoloft is a really effective med and it can promise a lot of thing for dp, but in general I think that you should not just count on meds. If you really want me to give you some more details about my experience you can start a conversation here with me. If social media fits you, my facebook is Sotos Meintanis and my discord is mrSalvator#1912. I hope you get better soon!
