I'm new to this board, but I'm glad I have found it. Last month, the day after my 18th b-day, my friend brought over alcohol to my apartment. I had never drank anything before that, and I also have an eating disorder. I got totally trashed by drinking 7 Smirnoff Ice Triple Black. I passed out on the stairs, and when I woke up the next morning, it felt like I was in a dream. I thought it was just a hangover until it didn't go away. I went to the emergency room, and they told me that i drank too much. It lasted a week and a half, then went away. Two weeks later, I was sitting in my college class that was dragging on and on, and I got that dream feeling again. Now it has been two more weeks since then and I don't think it's going to go away. I'm constantly worried, I went to the doctor for a low blood sugar test because i thought i had that. They told me my sugar level was fine, and ever since they told me that, I haven't had those symptoms anymore. I obsess over things like cleaning, checking, washing, and i have an obsession with doing things in multiples of 5 or 10. The nurse told me that she thinks it's anxiety from moving out, starting college, and drinking. I'm just freaking out because I haven't been diagnosed, but this sounds like what all of you have too. In the morning, I wake up and think I'm fine, but then when I think that, I feel like I'm in a dream again. It sucks so much and I really need some friends who are like me. Thank you and sorry for freaking out. It's just scary and I wish I never would have drank that night.

I hope you take it easy,especially on the drink.Its the worst thing in the world for making the condition worse.Believe it or not,time does soften the condition.But please please dont go getting drunk to try and block out consciousness.A hangover on top of dp is no joke.you are very young and well done for looking for help.Im sure you will make progress soon.Good luck!

yeah....i have been doing research trying to find out what this heeling is called and then i ran across this board. i'm not the type that likes to drink...i have always been against drinking, and then my friends kind of pressured me into it...i know it was my own choice, i just wish i hadn't have made that choice to drink. i feel like i had everything going for me...i got 9,000 dollars in scholarships, i have an apartment, i work and go to school, but now it feels like my goals will never be accomplished because this is standing in my way. i can't concentrate in my classes anymore, and i cry at night because i want to be normal again. everybody around me thinks that i'm just thinking that i'm in a dream, but they just don't understand. i hope it goes away soon, but at least on the positive side...i don't think anything life-threatening is wrong with me anymore :D

Wow...That sucks! Your first discription of your symptoms sounds a lot like OCD obsessive compulsive disorder. You should check into that a little more.

Just hang in there, this will probably go away on its own, its just going to take some time. I know it's hard but try not to think about it. The more you think about the stronger it gets. You got plenty of friends here for ya :)

Don?t you worry, CandiGirl, the stuff you describe doesn?t sound like a depersonalisation to me at all, you?ve just got some harder time now (suppose there are some radical changes in yer life, huh?).

But the OCD symptoms (as was said here before) shouldn?t be overlooked, anyway.

Time will heal this your dream-like state, I absolutely believe that, so just calm down, make the best of your life and don?t yeh drink anymore, it wouldn?t do any good (but you allready figured this out, right?:wink:)

Im just scared that this is something very serious but eveyone around me keeps telling me that it isnt. It happened right after I drank and that is what my parents think caused it along with all the other life changes. I just dont want there to be anything seriously wrong with me. I have noticed that i get a little better if I'm listening to music though because i takes my mind off of things. Thanks for being here for me though. I do appreciate it.
