I keep having it. For as long as I can remember. I don't know what to do about it. It's the only thing that I feel I have NO control over.
So what I can do for you: derealization is quite common. It might be helped by psychotherepy (I have no experience with this) in some cases. For other people the problem might lay in nutrition (I am currently struggling a (minor) eating disorder as well as the SP and derealization - right, ouch - and I've noticed that the more/healthier I eat, the less DP (DP for depersonalization, which is basically another expression for derealization) I experience).
If you wish to find out more about DP (which you might not wish, as what you defined as the problem is OBSESSING - well, you decide), you can google it, there's a lot of support/info sites. Ah, and there used to be an amazing vid about DP on youtube, you could search for that, too.
Love to you, De-vin and Dottie an Thequiettone, reading your posts feels like a blessing. I get what you are saying. Wish you to be strong and able to enjoy your reality (even when it seems distant).
