I have been suffering from some kind of derealization or something for the past five years. It seems to be related to a bunch of vitamins I took to treat autism. Anyway, I seem to be suffering from some kind of grounding disorder that has a lot to do with the kinds of principles that Lawrence W. Barsalou is always writing about. Also, I really miss being an OCPD control freak who likes to do everything the old fashion way and has the entire future planned out to the tiniest detail. I felt a lot more productive that way. I think the best way to treat all this is with medication and cognitive behavioral therapy. Currently, I am having Adderall and Prozac.
Welcome to icliniq.com. I can understand your feelings of detachment. From the available history, I think you are suffering from some type of dissociative disorder. I have considered your neurological checkup is normal. Your history suggests that you have depersonalization disorder which is marked by a feeling of detachment or distance from one's own experience, body or self. These feelings of depersonalization are recurrent. Of the dissociative disorders, depersonalization is the one most easily identified with by the general public; one can easily relate to feeling as they in a dream, or being spaced out. An individual with depersonalization disorder has this experience so frequently and so severely that it interrupts his or her functioning and experience. A person's experience with depersonalization can be so severe that he or she believes the external world is unreal or distorted. If you feel you are in the same situation, discuss with your psychiatrist. It can be treated for sure and you can come out from this problem completely. Mostly dissociative disorders are triggered as a response to trauma or abuse. Treatment for individuals with such a disorder is psychotherapy mostly. However, a combination of psychopharmacological and psychosocial treatment is often used. Many of the symptoms of dissociative disorders occur with other disorders, such as anxiety and depression and can be controlled by same drugs used to treat those disorders. You might benefit from antidepressants or anti-anxiety medication.
