Hi Paige. I've been suffering from panic disorder and anxiety my whole life.
I'm going to tell you that you can overcome anxiety and depersonalization.
I suffered with depersonalization for years and very bad anxiety. I now only suffer from panic attacks. Once in a great while I get depersonalization/derealization.
The anxiety is gone. I did homeopathy treatment and it eliminated the issue. However, my panic disorder is genetic and it hit me when I was in my late teens. I have yet to overcome it, but pray that I will everyday. Remember, if your boyfriend truly loves you, then he is not just "putting up with you", it's simply something that you're going through.
My soon-to-be husband has seen me have a million panic attacks, and push out a baby without fainting. LOL He's still around. I'm looking at him right now and he's trying to talk to me about
going to the casino on Sunday. But I told him I am typing to you! So he can wait. hahaha
*BIG HUGS* We are all here for you.
Are you on medication? I'm on Lexapro 20 mgs a day (about
to be upped to 30 mgs because I'm panicking again), and Lorazepam 1 mg a day.
You could also try meditating or breathing exercises to help cope with the anxiety. Exercising helps me a lot. I work out five days a week. Drinking DOES NOT HELP at all for me!!! I found a website with some good coping methods for that.
Well I hope you're feeling better and let me know how you're doing!
