    Derealization is a similar term to depersonalization, and the two are often used interchangeably. However, more specifically, derealization is the feeling that "nothing is real," while depersonalization is the feeling that one is "detached" from one's body or world.
    from Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depersonalization

    I realize Wikipedia isn't a clinical source, but it at least gave me a definition. What an awful feeling that must be! Ilovehisotry, I hope this goes away soon -

    Hi!

    Hatlady: I'm glad to hear that!

    I love what you said about the Olfactory Hallucinations! :lol:

    Here's a good description of derealisation from http://www.thelindenmethod.co.uk/dep...derealisation/ :

    Terms commonly used to describe the symptoms and sensations of derealisation:

    -spaciness
    -like looking through a gray veil
    -a sensory fog
    -spaced-out
    -being trapped in a glass bell jar
    -in a goldfish bowl
    -behind glass
    -in a Disney-world dream state
    -withdrawn
    -feeling cut off or distant from the immediate surroundings
    -like being a spectator at some strange and meaningless game
    -objects appear diminished in size
    -flat
    -dream-like
    -cartoon-like
    -artificial; objects appear to be unsolid, to breathe, or to shimmer
    -"as if my head were inside a Coke bottle and I'm viewing the world through the thick glass at the bottom"

    Keep well!

    WELCOME BACK, ANGEL GIRL !!!


    Just wanted to share with you what has worked for me. I purchased a screen shield for my monitor and it has made a HUGE difference....I too have seizures, I can't be around flourescent lights, etc. So, I would highly recommend a screen filter for your monitor.

    I hope you're doing better, it was great to see you back.

    Much love,
    Browneyedgirl
