Hey guys my name is Hayley and I'm 20 years old and I'm new to this site, was referred to it by one of my friends with DP/DR. I've recently started experiencing this disorder. It started at the beginning of August and it was very scary because I didn't even know it was a thing and now here I am about 2 months later with all of the symptoms being a lot worse.
I'm constantly afraid that I'm dying or disappearing or something or that there is something seriously wrong with me.
My symptoms include: Feeling unreal, scared to look at myself in the mirror, being disconnected to myself, people and things look strange to me. I feel dizzy all the time, I fear I'm going to pass out, I'm very tired all the time, my heart is constantly beating out of my chest. my muscles feel shaky and weak. All of these symptoms are causing serious problems in my everyday life and I'm constantly scared and want to cry.
I'm hoping to meet more people with similar problems and hopefully we can all help each other and be there for each other when things get bad.
