    that could be disassociation. I struggle with that myself and don’t feel that I’m in a coma, but almost like I’m in a dream and nothing that I say or the people I’m talking to are actually real life

    Yes I have had this experience before and it’s really scary but what I told myself is I’m real the world around me is real and I did some grounding exercises that really helped like plant you feet on the floor and count to 3 and stand up do it 5 times and then pinch yourself it helps me just something to help

    my whole life I've struggled with seeing everything as a program, and that I'm the only conscious person alive. you're not alone.

      thank you. It really helps to know other people feel similarly

    Yeah, Reality can sometimes be difficult to grasp but it's important to not lose hope

    I feel this a lot I tried to overdose on my anti-psychotic a few days ago and i haven't really shook the feeling but i usually just sit and talk to people to keep my brain busy

    i agree with everyone else that said this sounds like dissociation. when this happens to me i utilize grounding exercises to stabilize my perception of reality and return
