So I have bad derealization and depersonalization with anxiety. I have been having alot of stress due to school for the past week. I have been going to sleep at around 5am and getting barely any sleep whatsoever. I feel physically and mentally drained. I am dizzy, off balance, nauseous, exhausted, and have been having constant panic attacks.
Last night, something really strange happened. I had been working on my laptop until 5 am. Once I was finally finished and able to go to sleep, I had a terrifying experience. I was having a nightmare that was repetitive, realistic, and impossible to escape. I tried to wake up from it and was unable to. It felt eerire and scary and I finally woke up, in tears and shaking. I was unable to speak or wake up from this dream and this really frightened me. All day today, I have been questioning wherher I am still dreaming or if this is real. It makes me feel like I'm going crazy, my worst fear. Now I am scared to go to sleep in fear of this weird thing happening again. I am exhausted but fighting it. I am so nervous over it that I am having panic attacks one after another. I dont know whats real or whats not anymore and my derealization is getting really bad. I am desperate and in need of immediate help. I cant go to sleep because Im scared I wont be able to wake up. This is the most terrifying thing that has ever happened to me. Please, please help.
