So my detachment and derealization have definitely gotten worse these past couple days. I tried driving today and i wasjust so detached from my surroundings i couldnt leave my subdivision. Hopefully it improves tomorrow since i have work. Anyone ever recover from this? My detachment and derealization became worse after a bad weed trip. And i just need some advice. I want to start living life fully but this makes it so hard for me. I was anxious before but without the derealization. I think the bad trip from smoking made it a lot worse for sure.

So interesting you wrote this. Yesterday I was driving my kids to a bday party and I was in such a strong state of dp/dr I thought I might not be able to react to any potential hazards on the road, I felt like I couldn't see anything in focus. But the good news is on the way back I felt great and really clear, it had lifted while I was at the party and not thinking about anything I was just in the moment talking to all the other mums. It's just anxiety and we need to try to remember that in the moment I know it's hard though 😩

Yes! I feel like its worse when I'm thinking about it or concentrating on it. For me it's like derealization.

I just always feel like my surroundings arent real, but dreamlike. And life just seems very dreamlike to me. I have a lot of existential thoughts that throw me into a panic

I feel the same way with my derealization. It sucks. Glad I'm not the only one though
