I have dp and have so on and off since the age of 15 after having surgery.
I recently have had a bad bout of this and symptoms include
feeling of unreality
Present feels like distant pass e.g the other day i was in town with my hubby and 2 kids i went to one shop with my son and my hubby took our daughter but less than a couple of minutes after leaving my hubby i could not for the life of me remember if he had my daughter with him i instantly felt sick and panicky
Poor memory/concentration, struggle to follow conversation etc
de ja vu feelings
unable to focus properly find it difficult to read etc
off balanced feeling
These are the main symptoms but i feel completely in my own world if feels horrendous this is the worst period of dp ive ever been through and it is extremely hard to cope day in day out with it can anyone relate to the above symptoms ive mentioned above??
The only relief i get from this is to go to bed to sleep i have it 24 7 with no let up i hope that in time it will subside again.
I always think that i have a serious illness such as a brain tumor this is because to feel this horrendous and it not been something seriously wrong feels very odd how can you feel so bad and it be just a form of anxiety i dont understand it. I wouldnt wish my worst enemy to feel this way when you try to explain to others they just look at you as though youre going mad you cant explain it unless you have been through it this forum is great support and help to others everyone take care you will get through it you just have to stick with it take a day at a time it will pass xx
