I'm new here so i don't really know what category to post in..i have schizoaffective disorder and for about 6 months I've felt like I'm on the outside looking in. Maybe someone will know what i mean. I feel like I'm watching myself do daily activities and I'm in a haze. My therapist told me today it was a symptom of depression. Which i have been very very depressed but i didn't know that. I have alot of other symptoms. But I've never had a real problem with depression just with mania. I put on a happy face and stuff but it's just a front. My daughter also has dispersonalization. I feel sorry for her since i know what it feels like.

hi welcome
i suffer from depersonalization and dissociation really badly but for me it is part of my BPD
it is horrible and makes me feel apart from everyone and everything
i feel like i am not a person and not real and i am a robot watching myself from the outside

i take quetiapine to help with this but it is still very stressful to have

you are not alone at all and we will do our best to support you
you are very welcome here

lots of love Lu x

That's exactly how i feel. It's nice to know that someone knows what i mean. I take cymbalta effexor xr sorry not good at spelling lamectial thorazine and geodon but it's still happening. Not sure if taking something new would help.
