  1. I had this from March of 2011 to July of 2014 in long cycles (at times it would remit). I am recovered from it. I believe it was brought on mostly by trauma and aggravating life stressors that made me internalize a lot of anxiety.

    I am wondering if anyone else has dealt with or is currently dealing with depersonalization disorder?

    I don't know if this is the same thing, but earlier I felt like i was floating outside myself. I could see my body, etc, but i couldn't really control any of it, because my feet felt like they where stretched out behind me, and nothing corresponded. It was the first time it happened, and it distressed me somewhat, but i do also get feelings of being disconnected from my body or my surroundings. from what i can gather, the best thing to do is some sort of grounding activity, that distracts your mind from thinking about the dissociation, and also engages your body, at least to some extent.

    I hope this is of some help, i'm pretty new to this experience too.
