    it’s a symptom of prolonged very high anxiety. derealization/depersonalization. it alleviates itself as anxiety is alleviated. but, it can come back if you’re feeling bad anxiety or having a panic attack and last for a while until it slowly fades. at least my experience with it.

    just know it will pass eventually and doesn’t last forever at all, it’s actually impossible to

    I disassociate a lot. My partner has realized when I do it and will bring me back to earth. When it happens at work, my manager can pretty well tell now

    I disassociated so much in my youth that I don't remember whole chunks of my childhood. It's like a handful of steps beyond daydreaming...

    Derealization it is a scary feeling when you doubt reality, I described it as feeling like I’m in a dream or feeling numb and disconnected

      It has also changed my experience of time drastically when I’m in a disassociative state… and yeah the depersonalization has happened too where I look in a mirror and can’t recognize myself or feel connected to my body

    I think it is my mind/bodys way of trying to protect itself from feelings that are too intense or in times when Stress is high, I tend to either disassociate or have a panic/anxiety attack

    I feel this way a lot too! I try to keep myself grounded by playing with fidget toys and using peppermint essential oil around my nostrils.
