What's New in Derealization Disorder

i dont know what to do

I am struggling so bad and I don't know what to do anymore. Today my therapist quit on me and my psychiatrist is about to quit on me as well, as neither of them have any solutions or ideas of how to treat me. I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 a year ago and was making amazing progress until about April, as I went through a highly traumatic event, and have been stuck in an ever-increasing state of derealization/depersonalization. I am convinced that nothing is real, and then inherently nothing has any purpose. I have been stuck in this dissociative state for too long and I genuinely can't handle it much longer. I am on so many meds and none of them have helped at all, but they were helping until April and then I sunk deeper than I ever have before. I don't know if this is a Bipolar mixed state, psychosis, a personality disorder, or just very intense depression. I don't know what to do. The only reason I am functioning is because of my very intense discipline that I've had since I was young, otherwise I would have lost my job and possibly failed out of college. If anyone has any ideas please share, I am desperate for anything at this point. #Depression #Bipolar2 #DerealizationDisorder #DepersonalizationDisorder #DissociationDisorders #PTSD

Derealization and vision problems?

So I’m in derealization pretty bad right now. My vision is so bad. I can see but everything feels like it’s a mile away. Out of focus but not quite blurry. Maybe it’s fatigue. But do I need to get my eyes checked or is this a common thing with derealization? #DerealizationDisorder #DissociationDisorders #Depression #Fatigue

My biggest problem is that I don't trust, believe in myself. I don't even know who I am as a live being, as a person, am I good am I bad? Anxiety is constantly convincing me that I need to doubt everything in my life even my whole existence and my senses. It is such a crazy feeling. How do you start to believe in yourself? #Anxiety #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #DepersonalizationDisorder #DerealizationDisorder

Question: today I took my first pill of new SSRI antidepressants. I felt nervous for a while then totally sleepy like really knocked out and now I had so strong derealization that I even think it was delusion maybe? To be exact a very strong thought that my parents are dead (they are alive in real) and that I just can't cope with the reality that I just pretend that they are alive. What the f? Does anyone have similiar experience with SSRI? #Anxiety #MentalHealth #Depression #DerealizationDisorder #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder

Hi, my name is MistyBlue. I'm here because I need to find out more info or managing, finding supports, advice for things like what type of travel insurance does everyone use when they have physical & mental health issues? I would like to be able to articulate my diagnosis correctly & so much more.

Hi, my name is Doctor_Sola. I'm undiagnosed and I'm pretty sure I have a couple mental disorders or illnesses that really aren't fun, and I don't know what to do about it.

Hi, my name is JohnChatzis. I'm here because I can listen to anything that happened to you. I have helped people in the past because I had a dark past with dark thoughts that almost made me end my life. I still have thoughts to share though. I am not a specialist. I have still things inside me that bother me and I feel lonely. I can help you help me and you can help me help you. Love
