Feels like I am floating - its surreal - in a dream

Post by Tee on Mon Apr 18, 2011 7:05 am

I had experienced this for years, I would feel like the world was surreal - a good nights sleep and 24 hrs later I was fine. I did see doctors and they run blood teats (why I have no idea!)

Then one day I came across this:

Depersonalization (or depersonalisation) is a malfunction or anomaly of the mechanism by which an individual has self-awareness. It is a feeling of watching oneself act, while having no control over a situation.[1] It can be considered desirable, such as in the use of recreational drugs, but it usually refers to the severe form found in anxiety and, in the most intense cases, panic attacks. Sufferers feel they have changed, and the world has become less real, vague, dreamlike, or lacking in significance. It can be a disturbing experience, since many feel that, indeed, they are living in a "dream".

Depersonalization is a subjective experience of unreality in one's sense of self, while derealization is unreality of the outside world. Although most authors currently regard depersonalization (self) and derealization (surroundings) as independent constructs, many do not want to separate derealization from depersonalization..


Once I said the word Depersonalization to a doctor - I was told it was my migraines. Goes to show that you do, at times, need to use their language.
