  • "Pure" OCD
  • Somatic OCD

I had really bad derealization/depersonalization today from like 5 PM-4 AM now and it’s TORTURE. SO uncomfortable. Like this is so confusing all you can literally do is hope things get better soon. I haven’t been panicking as bad lately (just frustrated/discouraged crying 🙄) but I have been feeling more tormented mentally and like something about reality feels weird. It’s really hard to tell if I’m even getting better...my concentration the last couple of days has been absolutely awful too

Dw you ain’t the only one I feel like my derealisation is caused by my hocd but I feel like going out as hard as it is will help, even going for a walk helps trust me u may feel like shit on the walk u may feel better in bed but over time by doing little things you’ll get better

Yeah I been trying to do little things like I been knitting lately to help (right now I am) & I just keep feeling like I’m losing my mind or like I secretly want to or that it’s too late and I know over time the actions I’m doing will help I just have to be patient. I know anxiety will make people feel a lot of weird sensations and I think bc it’s been years since it was really bad this feels new to me. Thank you for your advice Also technically I haven’t been treating it bc im only on 25 mg and my therapy starts soon
