I am new here and have been suffering from panic disorder for 15 years. I have to reach out to you ( memories are not my own). about
8 years ago i went through this terribly. It ran my life. I became so obssessed with it i lost a year of my life . I pulled my daughter out of preschool and did nothing but obssess about
how i was going crazy. Seeing shrinks didn't help. I plunged myself into research and learned that it was of course.. Derealization/ depersonalization. I will tell you that the only thing that made it go away was to stop thinking about
it. Everytime you think about
it , do something that requires thinking. Until you stop thinking about
it, it will not go away. I know what you are going through and it's horrible. I have felt it attempt to come back since but i refuse to let it. It was too hard.
Again , i know exactly what you are talking about
. All of the sudden you are remembering things you haven't thought of in years and it doesn't even seem like they are your memories. Your pictures don't seem like you, my kids didn't even feel like mine. I know. I will be praying for you. Pelase disctract yourself. Sorry for rambling. I toggled the case of your text. Please, in the futrure do not type in all caps it makes it hard to read and is considered yelling.
