Re: Does anything help derealization??
I so can relate to 'derealization' also known as feeling 'detached' from a situation.First time I ever felt it-it was the scariest feeling ever.I felt stoned however I wasn't stoned (if that makes sense)
I was so happy to find out afterwards that it had a name and was felt by others...What really helped me was when I was prescribed clonazapam and ativan.and <BECAUSE>I knew what it was, I found it easier to face....like the store I needed to go into but all of a sudden felt 'detached' I now know to just enter the store (and not run away for the millionth time LOL) and once I faced it-within a few mins it got better...
But if <YOU> have a dr, that <YOU> can discuss different coping methods for <YOU> (whether its meds,exercises with breathing,or a combo of both...) hopefully with trial you can find something that works or atleast helps to ease that feeling-which comes with anxiety attacks alot of the time
Hope I have helped in a way-I wouldn't wish that feeling on anyone so my prayer is that <YOU> find comfort and help to deal with this.
