Hi
Sorry your feeling terrible it sucks that your house bound because it's most likely making the disconnected feelings alot worse . Can you get out the house go for a walk do something that gets your mind off how your feeling even for half an hour would help hugely.
I'm currently going through a intense episode of depersonalization and derealization so I get how crazy it feels and how much you want out of this feeling but try to remember it cant get any worse and in all truth dissociation is a protection mechanism a shitty one I know but it is just that .
I really hope you get to a better place soon
But honestly you need to get out the house and try your hardest to get busy with something ,anything and it will take your mind of this for a while .

I've had insomnia from anxiety for four years and I know what you're going through. It's important to see a therapist that's well informed about DP. I have canceled or asked my husband to so many appointments due to not sleeping or being depressed and anxious fro lack of sleep. Is there someone who can drive you to and from a[ppointments? Even if there was a bus or taxi would be good. The more you stay in the house the more you'll dwell on your symptoms. I found for me I got worse anxiety and depression from isolation. Pushing yourself to go somewhere would distract you from anxiety and depression. I've had anxiety caused DP since I was 13 from worrying about everything. I'm 65 now and it's still here 24/7. I'd be happy to help if you need ideas or just to talk.

There is help out there but don't stay in the house. It's a real downer. I stayed isolated for months at a time in the past. at a time. My heart goes out to you.

Thank you for helping Newbie. You're right about getting out of the house. I often must push myself when I think I'll lose my mind from these awful DP symptoms.
