I'm over the physical symptoms. I feel connected to my body again and more of a connection to the world. I'm good, except for one thing. The existential thoughts at killing me. I try not to think about them but whenever someone brings them up it just makes me spiral again, it fills me with anxiety and makes me think my life is meaningless.

Particular the thought that my life could be a simulation. People try to make me feel better by saying if it is a simulation then there's nothing I can do some just forget it, but it makes me worry my life ks menaingless. Sure I can just ignore it, but everytime it comes up it worries me again.

I just want to feel sure my life is real like I used to before all this started. How can I feel sure my world and reality that I live in is real again?

This is actually what most people are left with once DP/DR starts to go away.This is what I am battling right now.

I bet I can do a PhD in quantum physics right now because of the huge amout of time I spent on reading what reality is.

Lets take an example of LSD.Many people who take it and start to hallucinate ,come back later and think that they saw a different world ,or that the actualy "reality" they live in right now (like me and you) isn't so solid as they used to think.They key to overcome this thought is to learn how that drugs works.

Albert Hoffman ,they guy who discovered LSD ,and accidentaly took a very hugh amout said in his book that the key to avoid a bad trip and the horror that follows it ,is to understand how the body is affected by it on the sensory level.He said that our body acts like an antenna to the the stimuli of the outside world and LSD changes the biochemistry of the body so that the incoming sensory input is interpreted in a different way.

A simulation would mean that the world is like a fixed set of events ,but quantum physics does not say so.The world at the quantum level does not behave like the physics we know ,if it was a simulation ,humans would be able to predict everything but quantum does not say so.

People in the past used to say lots of things ,but later on their ideas were refuted.Physicians used to think that they could know everything ,they discovered quantum physics and boom ,looked like they dont know anything at all.

Think about it that way ,what is the difference in thinking that the world is a simulation and believing in a God ? If it is a simulation ,who is the one simulation it ,is it being simulated b itself ? Is the Simulation the simulator of itself ? Does this cycle end ?

Try to shift your concentration on the present ,you will notice that this feeling will go away.
