I also suffered from panic attacks, derealization, depression, anxiety etc Just thought i'd give you my version of what causes it and what you can do to completely overcome it. My search for answers led me to Chinese theory, and the Taoist Water Method of meditation. The chinese believe that most sickness, including both physical and mental is a result of blockages in your bodies lifeforce or 'chi'. Chi that is not free-flowing can manifest in many different forms, including physical sickness or injuries, psychological disorders, chronic fatigue, neurosis, anxiety, fixations, and many other ways.
Through chi practices such as the Taoist water method of meditation you can dissolve these energetic blockages and re-allign the energies in ur body. Check out Sarah Jane on youtube, who cured herself from Schizophrenia, depression, anxiety using the water method of meditation as well as chi practices such as Tai-chi. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PvgxA48m7Y
The #1 book i would recommend would be "relaxing into your being: the taoist water method of meditation" by Bruce Frantzis.
