Hi

I wrote a post this morning but there was a new symptom that i couldn't explain , i have had this feeling once before.

I feel a nothingness like iam nothing not human nothing , i know I'm in a universe a world but it feels like iam absolutely nothing im floating around acting a part that i know i use to do or be like but it feels so very unnatural and fake .

I feel not grounded at all like i will fall away out of this strange universe thst ive woken up in.

Everything i look at is slightly foggy and not right , my family seem strange like i feel like I have no connection to them , maybe because i feel alien in this strange world im in .

My head feels weird like its full off cotten wool heavy and strange , i kinda feel like im just a pair of eyes looking out off nothing no shell or body or soul.

This is my description of my current symptoms like i said this has only happened once before but wasn't as strong as it is this time around .

This morning I was on the verge of a panic attack because these feelings are so very uncomfortable and bizare to what iam use too .

I've had dpdr for a year and a half now roughtly but never had these feelings so im very anxious.

Can anyone relate to my description?
Anyone else feel like a nothing floating around this universe like nobody ?

This is so dame scary .

Hello,

That's depersonalization, maybe you where only suffering from derealization before. I didn't have dp since a month and a half ago, while I had dr for more than a year.

Derealization is when you are dissociate from your congnitive functions related to externalities (eyesight, people, sounds, tastes, time, touch), while depersonalization is when your ego is dissociated from yourself (feelings, emotions, physical sensations, motor functions) more generally your sense of self, like not belonging to yourself.

It must have been caused by an important stress (the family problem you mentionned in your other post probably).

Try not to panic and avoid any source stress / negative thoughts.
