“Alice in Wonderland syndrome” and derealization/depersonalization: does anyone experience both at the same time? Sometimes I can’t figure out how big I am in comparison to the room & it drives me crazy trying to figure out the size of my body (not in a fat/skinny way, but in a perception of reality way).

      Oh yeah! I deal with the pretty often. Sometimes I feel like I’m 3 feet tall trying to walk around my house and use everyday items. Honestly, it sounds really weird, but don’t pay it any attention and move on from it as best as you can. The less attention you give all of the dissociation and derealization, the faster it goes away or lessens. It sounds absolutely crazy to not pay attention to how the room spins or how your mind is terrifyingly blank and all the other things that go along with it, but it works after a while! The more attention you give these things, the worse it gets.

      i have this all the time, usually when im laying in bed or sitting down, i try to just ignore it and sleep it off, but sometimes it can be hard, but the more you have it you start to get used to it, and you won’t even pay attention to it anymore

      I have a hard time figuring out which memories are real and which ones are dreams because I'll have a conversation with my partner, but the proportions of everything are off, which usually indicates to me that it's a dream, but then he brings it up later and turns out, it was real, it just didn't feel like it because I was so sure I was not where time is
