I've been there too, my DP/DR can get so bad sometimes, I have major panic attacks just realizing my arms moving and my skin and all that sort of
nonsense. I used to be fine, I got on with life like everyone else, than one day it was like a switch was flipped and my whole view and perception
I am anxious 99% of the day, that 1% is when I am medicated (clonzepam) lol The rest of the time, like I am now, is noticing how weird it looks with
my hands typing this comment. My doctor supposedly says it is DP/DR and that it is caused by hyperventilation and I should do my breathing exercises,
but most of the time it is so bad and the panic attacks come on so strong, I just can believe that would cure it.
I don't know if you get this feeling, but its like a thought that leads to this instant weird perception like a steam train just hit me with raw and
sometimes unwanted truth, and I become completely frozen with fear. At times I feel unable to live like this, yet I don't want to die either, so I
just have to put up with it. A very horrible way to live, and most of the time I feel like I am going insane.
However, I don't get the black outs you mentions, where you wind up somewhere else, but I have lost most of my long term memory, as well and short
term... to say the least I am a mess and that moment, and anyone else out there, be sure to know your not alone.
