Hi guys! I've been experiencing what I think is Depersonalization or derealization but I guess I'm looking for some reassurance or opinion on if what I describe sounds like it really is. Sometimes all of the sudden I will feel STRANGE and I mean STRANGE. I can touch something but not feel like I'm touching it... even though I can physically feel that I am (if that makes sense)... sometimes I get a wave come over me for a second where it SEEMS like everything is slowed down but it all still looks normal speed. It's like I'm processing it delayed or something? I've had where I almost feel a numbness come over my body but when I touch it I can still feel everything . Other times I am talking and I'm hearing myself talk but I feel distant and like it's not me talking. It's all subjective because nothing happens to actually impair me and I don't lose consciousness or my sense of what's going on. I'm totally with it while this is happening! It's a weird state I go in and out of that I find almost impossible to put into words that I feel really explain it. I constantly worry that this is some sort of severe psycho episode starting... or that I'm going to be stuck in my body and not have control over my limbs or something. I will add that I've suffered with pretty bad anxiety/ panic for about 8 years now on and off. I had never had these strange experiences though until a horribly stressful year with a ton of changes and horrible stressors. I'm scared all the time. I'm having a hard time that this is just anxiety... am I nuts? What's happening to me? Also, I'm currently 6 months pregnant so I'm not in the position to have an MRI or anything until after the baby comes. I've tried antidepressants but they make me very restless and more anxious. Sucksz does this sound like what anyone else is experiencing?!?!i feel lost and alone... depersonalization?
