I started having on and off DP/DR for the past 7 to 8 weeks now.

I used to smoke lots of weed for the past 3 years. I was a heavy smoker and I quit about 8 weeks ago.

I think quitting weed and a panic attack triggered DP for me.

I'm 19 year old male. I'm healthy. I skateboard everyday. I have a job. I have a wonderful girlfriend. Everything is great.

I've learned to deal with the DP. It will come in waves. Or it will always be there in the back of my mind.

I went through the fear already. The simple fear of going crazy or if I'm losing myself.

I'm not.

I'm fine.

I'm just annoyed.

I randomly will feel like I am in a full blown dream out of no where. Or I forget if the past few hours of my day actually happened. Sometimes I look at my limbs and don't feel like they are mine. I will think about thinking. I think about how existence is crazy. I just think or my mind is blank.

I don't get why I still feel like this. My anxiety isn't even bad. It just comes in waves of DP/DR.

That's what worries me.

That I still get it and I'm not even anxious.

No clue what triggers it.

Anyone else relate?

I have GAD. But my anxiety has been way low.

No panic attacks or anything.

Just DP/DR.

It sucks.

Anyone relate?

I had a blood test, and everything is good.

Should I get an MRI or what?

Thanks Selig. I don't think I have anything wrong with my brain. No severe headaches or anything like that. I got a blood test not to long ago to make sure everything was in check. Everything seems to be good. I go back to my GP in February. If I get any worse I will get an MRI.

These past few days I have kinda been anxious and fearful of my own existence. I've always had paranoia when it comes to health.

DP is a bumpy road, but I'm dismissing the fear and rolling through it all.

I just pray it is nothing like a brain tumor or lesion. I don't think I have MS or anything like that.

Well... Atleast I hope not.
