I went on a trip and I wasn't with my parents for the majority of the trip. That doesn't happen often since I'm too young to do many things alone. I was pretty happy while I was there, I was helping a family friend take care of horses and driving (carriage) them, which I love to do. I even went on long (carriage) drives out in the open country without having a single panic attack. Usually, when I go far from my "comfort zone" which is the house, I get nervous thinking, "This would be a really be a bad time to have an episode of derealization." That almost always triggers an episode for me. When my parents came back, I was pretty sour. I was still OK as far as DR goes. But, the minute I got out of the car and was home, I had intense DR. I still sort of have it, but it's better now. Do you guys think being with my parents all the time stresses me out and causes DR for me? Maybe being home symbolizes going to school and being home a lot and causes stress, which causes DR. Stress seems to be my only cause of DR. When I'm completely unstressed, I actually feel pretty normal.
