I was getting my first period and I had been to a grade school dance. It was a very small grade school. several friends decided to start teasing me that night. I felt horrible and kind of down. When I got home I layed on my bed I started to think very obsessively about how they are all against me, and I won't have anyone to play with. Over and over in my mind I said Why don't they like me and what's wrong with me that people don't like me. The thoughts wouldn't stop until I went into this unreal world. SOOOO scary. It hasn't stopped since 14. I'm 57 now. A real nightmare. There are no meds for it. It is a problem of conscientiousness.It's more helped by a Psychologist.
I have had depersonalization ever since I was 14. I am now 50and still have it 24/7. When I look at people they don't look real. People look like they are far away even though I'm next to them. It's like there is a fuzzy wall between us. I'm seperate from my body, like when I look at my arms they don't look like they are mine. Sometimes I get severe depression and have been in the Hospital for it. Get the book "Feeling Unreal". It only covers this topic. This has to do with too much anxiety. It is very frightening, especially when it first happens. Does any of this sound like you. Let me know, OK?
