    Re: Derealization/Depersonalization

    Wow. For the past couple of months I've been experiencing alot of anxiety, especially at night when I'm trying to go to sleep. I lay in bed and my mind just explodes with stress and my chest starts to feel tight, almost like I can't breath. Whats crazy is that I have been experiencing (only while in bed at night) a strange feeling of almost dizziness or a feeling of coming out of my body. I didn't realize that this had a name until I was reading here tonight some about derealization/depersonalization. Its almost like the stress makes me so tense and anxious that my mind wants to release me from the tight chest and shallow breathing and i feel a out of body type feeling. Its wierd. I didn't know it had a name.

    And it brings back memories when I was a little girl I think I was having these episodes as well. I remember walking down the hall in my house and having a dizzy/lightheaded experience where I'd have to lean against the wall, close my eyes, and I felt very lightheaded in a severe way.

    I've always had anxiety, never saw a doctor/therapist. Never have taken medicine. I just deal with it I guess. Kind of all started after my mother died of cancer when I was 12. I'm 28 now and still feel loads of anxiety.

    any relaxation treatments or suggestions??? I don't want to take medicine.

    yeah I used to get this. It really is a precurser to a panic attack, basically. you start to breathe really fast, your body doesn't get the oxygen it needs. I was convinced I was having some paranormal/out of body ****, but when I read how the symptoms I had were the exact same people get before or after fainting, I came to my senses and realized I just freaked myself out. I would have fainted if I hadn't snapped out of it.

    derealization/depersonalication is really making me scared. Does it ever go away?!


    EDIT: Just read some posts. They had said that it went away for them after medication set in.
