I have been Depersonalized and Derealized for about 3 weeks now I went and found a therapist who specializes in anxiety disorders she told me I have OCD with obsessive thoughts and fears I know I am obsessing about being stuck derealized because its such a scary and uncomfortable feeling Im doing some cognitive behavioral therapy excersizes to combat it but I want relief now the longer I feel the DP and DR the more scared I am becomming that it wont pass and that fear is driving me to obsess the obsession is driving me to stay highly anxious which is causing the symptoms to linger and I know this the frustrating part is I can't srop myself from engaging in this vicious cycle I feel I will just be so mentally burnt out that I will fry my brain and lose all control I was told to accept my current condition as my temporary norm to try and not fight theese feelings easier said than done right now I am not living just existing
Please understand that I was dealing with quite a bit of drama on DS. I need support finding my way back on here. Please be here for me?
I've tried to meditate but had to stop because anxiety was threatening to overwhelm me and I started shaking.I have nothing to be frightened of. All the frightening things in my life happened when I was a child/adolescent. I'm 37 years old now and none of the people who hurt me can hurt me now.Can childhood fears perpetuate forever? Will I spend the rest of my life being scared of ghosts?
