Feeling extreme derealization

Idk what it is. But I feel completely out of it and not myself. I don't feel anything other than derealization, nothing around me feels real, even typing this doesn't feel real. Maybe I'm just extremely tired, my anxiety is at its peak? But I'm not anxious I'm just numb. I don't feel real. This feeling terrifies me cause I feel like I might die. I've had this feeling before, but I just hate it. Someone or something, anything...please pull me back into reality. I wanna feel like myself again. I'm scared :'(

That's how I felt the first time I smoked a joint and got high on it.

Have you been through some sort or major life changing event? Was this drug induced? Or do you feel overwhelmed with stress.

Try to aleviate the anxiety to get rid of derealization. Derealization is kind of like a defense mechanism to numb you in order to prevent feelings like being anxious. Try resting for a bit I know I get robot like when I need sleep

I've felt something that sounds like this while in school. It would just feel as though I wasn't fully there almost like my consciousness was separate from my body. I think it has something to do with my social anxiety since crowded rooms and halls full of teens is a bit of a daunting environment for me. What I found would work most of the time is once I got a chance, sitting down and just trying to focus on one thing like breathing, writing something by hand or drawing a picture, even saying hi to my teacher and engaging in small scale small talk would help ground me a bit.
