Hi I've just joined the forum to see if anyone can give advice. My daughter is 15 years old and suffers from anxiety. She started having depersonalisation episodes about y months ago. Not very often but this morning has been the worst yet.
She said she was banging things around in her bedroom to get my attention. Her head was telling her to do it instead of just shouting me, then she harmed herself just because she had to do it.
This gas never gone to the extreme of hurting herself before and I'm scared. Does yhus happen to others,?

Hi Fulmus and welcome to the forum.

I don't think I have ever had any experience with depersonalisation (it can happen and you don't know so am not sure), but there's a section on here specifically for that illness. Maybe read some threads to help better your understanding.


Also, I would suggest seeing a psychiatrist or doctor as soon as the lockdown allows. Hope your daughter gets the help she needs and feels better soon.

Yes definitely needs to get some professional help. Depersonalization is about feeling like you are not in reality, like things and yourself arent real.

Yeah and it can be tricky to know if you have had it.

Get her some professional help as soon as possible, you seem like a good parent so she is in good hands.
