Okay before I start I just wanted to say I have now found a psychiatrist to go to. so lately I haven't been feeling good mentally (for about 6 or so months now) It all started in the summer before leaving to go away to school. I just remember feeling less interested in what I used too etc, then one day with friends I went hiking and had my first experience of what I think was derealization which was so weird to me. Then I went to school and my anxiety picked up or atleast I kept telling myself for a long time it was, I just felt so not myself and stressed/in my head, anxious etc lack of interest in things. the whole time away at school. So lately now I've moved back home and have been having trouble because I want to know whats wrong with me. I can't shake these thoughts I would do anything to just snap out of this. I can't sleep good at night, I usually toss and turn till about 5 a.m.(my brain just won't stop thinking about this. I think I am obsessed with something being wrong with me, I go to the gym to try and stop the thoughts but they can be so overwhelming. What's making it worse Is that I keep thinking I am seeing things out of the corning of my eye, I'm not hearing any voices or actually hallucinating but still I obsess over the idea of schizophrenia or that I will wind up completely losing my self/control and It really brings me down. I also get unwanted images/thoughts but i always tell myself they aren't real. Lastly, Sometimes I am fine and other times when I go out I'm not, so I geuss mood is kind of unstable right now but i'm never overwhelmingly happy or sad. Please if anyone has similar experience PLEASE speak up I can't live with this anymore, thank you so much

I have GAD also and have experienced derealisation. It is a very strange thing to go through. I never used to know what it was until i overheard one psychiatrist telling another what was happening to me outside my door on the ward recently. He said to her, what was she doing? She said, that's derealisation. It is a result of high anxiety in my case.

I feel sorry for you to be going through this at such a young age, which i assume you are.

I just went through a weird derealization of my own at work last week.
At the end of the day, I had to shake myself to "wake up" and go home.
The whole day was a blur of zoning out and being "startled" back to reality whenever anyone came in or called.
It sort of faded by the end of the next day but I felt shaken by the experience for the rest of the week.
