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
Hello.I am new to this forum but I have found that reading other peoples experiences and stories has really helped me not feel so alone in this rollercoaster. I am a chronic worrier, diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder about ten years ago and recently it has evolved to health anxiety. Feel free to view my first journal entry to read my particular quirky story.This is my first time sharing...
I I really like my job . I work again tomorrow
