Depersonalization

Recently I’ve been experiencing depersonalization. I didn’t know that’s what it was until I finally just googled “feeling different”. Lately I’ve felt like I don’t belong. Like I’m not myself in my body. Everything feels weird. It doesn’t help that I have a new apartment and hate change. I just don’t care enough about anything. I just want to feel “normal” again but I don’t even know what normal is anymore. It really pains me to feel this way and not be able to fix it or turn back to how I was before I started feeling like this about a month and a half ago. How do you cope?

Hi. Did you know the 11th Commandment is "Thou shalt not Google. Visit doctor". :)

I hear you. But in the meantime, I feel how I feel and no doc has been able to tell me or prescribe me anything that has helped

There has been a young mother in California who has been posting and discussing depersonalization for months. She has tried at least 4 doctors and therapists. You sound like her. I cannot recall her user name at the moment as none of her posts have appeared on my computer in awhile. Maybe you can post something like you are looking for her for advise and help.

"Hello California Mom with handsome husband and depersonalization, I need your help. Please respond." Or something like that. Then explain in the box why you are wanting to reach her. It is worth a try? Yes?
