Health anxiety and depersonalization

I am 18 years old and i have had anxiety pretty much since i was 9. Recently i have learned about depersonalization and im pretty sure i suffer from it. I constantly feel like im not here and everything around me is foggy. Kind of like im in a movie. I have terrible health anxiety. I always feel like im dying and that theres no hope anymore. I just want to get better because this is draining me and i dont know how much more i can take.

Hey, dm1999. I hope you're doing OK. I'm literally new here, but I want to tell you that everything will be alright. I completely understand that feeling of hopelessness. To be honest, I'm 24 and I still struggle with it most days. You are young, very young (as am I). My best advice I can give from personal experience is to have at least one person you trust. Someone you can talk to when you're feeling sad or like there's no hope. And it's important (to me at least) that they will listen and be there when the going gets tough. I have my husband who supports me unconditionally. I hope this at least helped a little bit. Hang in there. :)


Hi nice to meet you and welcome to the site. Have you been to the doctors about this yet? It sounds like you need medical help so make an appointment please.

Health anxiety is very common and you can be helped with this.
