    Thank you for sharing this with people. It is so well written and I’m sure there are so many people who will gain from your experience and understanding! You have taken something clinical and explained it in a way that makes sense and is real. I hope you continue to find helpful ways to cope and wish you all the best!

    Thank you!
    I thought it was just me with the feelings of derealization and depersonalization.
    I thought I was really loosing my mind, especially when driving, but the first commenter also has these feelings, so it’s comforting to know it’s not just me..
