I was just at a pet store and i was looking at some fish. Suddenly i was thrust in to the most unreal state of my life. I had to run out of the store and race home. I just took a xanax and i hope it helps. I feel like i need to be admitted to the hospital. Im going crazy

I feel the most unreal i have ever felt in my life. I feel week and dizzy, disconnected and terrified. I feel like at any second i'm going to pass out and vanish. Im crushed and week.

listen...that's how mine came on for the very first time i had it. i was in hawaii at pearl harbor and all of a sudden -BAM-, dr hit me so hard! i was terrified but i'll tell you that it will get better! i don't think you need to be checked into a hospital...maybe you should call a friend or close family member and talk about it?...

I'm convinced that Canibus is not as harmless as everyone thinks...It caused my dp also. I wonder what it did to our chemical balance or if it damaged our brains??

Hmm i doesnt harm most of the population and generally weed addicts :shock: dont go crazy even after prolonged time of smiking so maaaybe there is something wrong with us and its ourselfs that we should be looking into from a slightly diff perspective that blame it entirely on those horrific drugs..?

Space does anything unusual happen to You lately?You been in a lot of stress or something specific triggered the flasback?
Hope you doing better by now hang on man

I am really bothered by fish in tanks. Their lives seem so meaningless, and they look trapped. It makes me sad for them. One time I saw one of those fake fish lamp things that blow bubbles and the "fish" move up and down, and one of the fish's eyes were gone, and I was HIGHLY disturbed for a while. In fact it still kinda bugs me to think about it...
Not that any of this helps probably, but maybe it helps to know someone can relate?

I HAVE a fish tank and when Im at my worst I cannot even look at them because it makes me think too much about how meaningless it is. When Im doing well I can just sit there and stare at them for hours without a thought crossing my mind about their lives!

Cannabis is definately NOT harmless. I am testament to this. I freaked out for a whole year after taking one single fucking puff. It's active ingredient, tetrahydracannibol is a mild hallucigen, so think twice before you take it again.

Space - we know how you feel mate. We understand the chaos whirling around you. But you must listen. You must act on the advice given to people on this board. Then, and only then, will you be able to start to get your head straight and regain your life. Repeat after me - there IS a way out of this, however hopeless you feel. DR/DP is NOT your natural state of mind. Please keep telling yourself that.

I know, god I know, how crippling DR can be. But I survived, I got myself out of it...so can you. Don't forget it.

Agent cooper, this is what happened to me, how long did it last? because I really like talking to people who have had similar experience, I hear so much about ppl having DP/DR during panic attacks, well this is not me, I was stressed about something and then BAM everything went surreal, like a rush to my head, and I have been in DR ever since, was your experience similar? I have been in DR for about 4 months with not much change.

that particular severe episode only lasted a couple of hours but i was in a constant state of dr for the next 8 months (with varying degrees of severity). i was not even stressed when my dr came on....i was just walking around looking at pearl harbor.

now i only get dr (luckily very mild dr) about 2 weeks out of every month.
