I feel like nothing is real and like I’m watching a movie. I really don’t know what’s wrong?

Question:

I feel like nothing is real and like I’m watching a movie. I really don’t know what’s wrong?


Light On Anxiety Answer:

It sounds like you are experiencing symptoms of depersonalization and derealization.

These symptoms often occur under the umbrella diagnosis of panic disorder. If you are extremely  distressed by these symptoms, if you experience persistent concern about these symptoms, and these symptoms are impairing your functioning, there is a good chance you meet criteria for panic disorder. 

Depersonalization and derealization symptoms can be extremely distressing and often lead to thoughts of “going crazy” such as “I am losing it” or “there is something really wrong with me”.
