My DR gets triggered by coincidences

I have been experiencing severe anxiety and derealization for about two weeks now. I've only really had two really bad attacks so far, but I still am living in constant anxiety.

My derealization was first very suddenly triggered by an unlikely coincidence. I was in my bed with my laptop, reading some article. I read the word professional, and a second later the TV says something about 'Professional Back massages.' The world kinda shifted a little and the feeling of the world around me being fake started to creep up on me. Shaken, I stayed put and continued reading, trying to shake it off. But then the coincidence happened again and it got really bad. Everything around me felt super clear and blurry, and it all felt like it was just out of reach if I were to go and touch it.

Over the past two weeks these coincidences just keep happening and happening and it makes me feel like everything is made up in my head and I control everything and that nothing exists. I know this isn't true but I just can't feel it isn't true.

I have looked all over and have never found any cases of dr starting from coincidences. Does anyone else get triggered from coincidences, or have a ton of coincidences just start popping up?
