Hi, my name is Paige and I'm new to this site. I just added my account. I'm a little dissapointed there isnt a category specifically for DP/DR but if anyone out there has this I would love to talk to you about
it! Im in the anxiety chat room now. Then, a month after my first panic attack, I was walking one day and felt as if my breathing were constricted. It was completely out of the blue and I didnt know what was happening. I have been smoking cigarettes for about
4 months So i decided to take a break from tobacco and get my lungs into good shape. Then suddenly a few days later my boyfriend and I were driving home and I felt as if I weren't inside my own body. I wasn't living my own life. My voice was flat, I was tingly, and everything looked dull and sounded dull and scary. I wasn't sure if the world around me was real. I began to have a panic attack and had about
4 on our way home. I could hardly breathe and I wanted to go to the hospital. I began doing research on this scary feeling and figured I was having nicotine withdrawals and caffeine withdrawals as I started to only drink water. Now, a month later, I have really bad days with depersonalization and anxiety and others where I dont have much, but no matter what its always in the back of my mind. Please please help me if anyone can!
