I have been doing well on my meds but have had a backslide recently. The last couple of days or so I have had this sense of doom, like something really bad is going to happen and my episodes of dp have been more frequent, I am feeling depressed. My doc wants me to take klonopin 2 times a day with my wellbutrin but I worry about addiction. Don't get me wrong, I am not suicidal or anything, I just have a bad feeling that I am going to die. Has anyone experienced this with dp? I guess I will do like doc says for now.

Hi there,
I know the feeling well. In fact, listen to this bit of "DP madness".... not only have I felt like I was going to die, but I had a short episode where for just a split second in time, I actually believed that I HAD DIED, and that the person I was hanging out with was going to tell me that: "it was o.k. to pass on to the other side"!!! Whoah!...talk about a trip?!? Like I said it was just for a split second that I felt that way, but I never forgot the sensation...and I guess I never will. I think we all have setbacks at times, I think that for ppl with DP the trick is to stay "grounded" in reality as best as we can by reminding ourselves that: "we really are WHO we think we are, we are WHERE we think we are, and that things will get better".

i think that "impending sense of doom" or "impending sense of insanity" are very common symptoms of dp. i have felt them many times. just keep telling yourselves it's just a symptom of the disease and it won't actually happen.

I often think something bad will happen...especially when I'm OK otherwise, I fear that I'll die soon etc...I can't really think about future 'cause I don't believe that, let's say, in few months, I will still be alive and sane...

Nice Tony! I had the same thing but it wasnt for a split second. I thought I was dead too, but it was for long periods of time through out the day. I honestly thought I died and gone to hell, and I was just watching myself and everyone else like they were a movie. Boy!!! That was ugly, I dont know how I didnt end up in an mental hospital....

Yep, had that chronically for days on end. Thought my time was up. Never was , though. You're safe. You just don't believe it.

I'm telling you, nothing can ruin a day quite like that feeling of being dead.
Cheers

I hate to say it, but I am glad that I am not the only one who feels this way! I feel like I am just suddenly gonna drop dead or die in my sleep. I even asked my Mom to help my husband with the kids if anything happens to me! The dp has been really bad lately, I am so detached. Ugh! I hate this, although, the klonopin does help when I take it. And Tony, I had that "I am dead" feeling once too, I was in the car with my husband and I suddenly thought I was dead and was just a ghost in the car. WAAAAAYYYYYYY SCARY!
