Hi guys. So basically about a year ago I was in the hospital for a week for an endoscopic surgery and when I got back from the hospital I had no responsibilities for about 5 months and I just stayed in my room on my computer for mostly all day and stayed up late doing this. I had little human interaction during that time because i wanted to be alone, and also for the past few 2 years leading up to the surgery my interaction with people was reduced significantly due to my eating disorder which made me isolate myself from people. Now when I am around people and even when i am alone in my room, I feel like I am not real and that nothing around me is real, and I am always afraid that I am dying or going to die soon from heart failure or forgetting how to breathe. Also, i cant focus in on anything and I feel like life is just passing me by so fast and I am not actually in my body because I have derealization symptoms. I was wondering is this because I have been separated from people for so long? Also, can this feeling go away?
