Social Depersonalization

Recommended Posts

I have experienced Depersonalization in the past with its typical symptoms.

The thing now, is that I have noticed that one of my triggers is social interactions. When I am alone I usually don´t experience depersonalization, but everytime I try to socialize with new people I experience severe depersonalization the first minutes and then it goes away.

Why does this happen? Do you also get depersonalization in social situations? If not is there something specific that triggers your depersonalization or it happens with no trigger?

What is the relationship between depersonalization and social phobia? which one comes first?

Thank you for your response. I thought I was the only one. Does depersonalization happens to you everytime you are in a social situation? or only with certain people?

It's a pretty constant thing for me. In some form, I am usually drifting away. But it's not as severe around people I am close to. The more people, the worse it is.

I only get it when I am really anxious or around people. It doesn´t happen with the people I am close to. And like you said the more people the worse is

      HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER TYPE II, AND ALSO I HAVE  SOCIAL PHOBIA. I HAVE HISTORY OF DRUG ABUSE, AND I HAD BEEN ADDICTED TO XANAX FOR 2 YEARS. THEN, BY FOLLOWING ASHTON MANUAL, I FINALLY MANAGED TO DROP OFF THESE MEDS GRADUALLY. AND I HAVE BEEN CLEAN FOR 18 MONTHS NOW. BUT MY LIFE GRADUALLY BECOMES IMPOSSIBLE AND 1 WEEK AGO I TOOK XANAX( AGAIN) AND IT HELPED ME TO DO DAILY TASKS WITHOUT ANXIETY ISSUES. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. I HAVE THE FEELING THAT WITHOUT BENZOS MY LIFE IS NOT AS IT SHOULD BE WITHOUT XANAX I AM LOCKED IN MY HOUSE, BARELY ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH STRANGERS, EVEN WHEN NEEDED.

      My christmas was okay.
      I survived it. 
      I do well when the food is rolling in and the drinks are flowing. Saves me from having to make idle chit-chat.
      Went to one family gathering and I ended up getting the shakes (I have essential tremor of the head and neck) and nerves.
      My seat was in the corner in front of family I rarely see.
      I ended up swallowing 2 ativan, and some pepto-bizmal and swallowed my pride and survived.
      we were being forced to socialize and it was painful. 
      Anyone want to share?

      Hi everyone!
      I'm huntforbravery. I've got social phobia and it's been kicking my ass lately. I thought joining a community might help me to talk some of it through. Not to mention I'll get to meet new people through the comfort of anonymity . I just graduated from school and am on the job hunt. I spend a lot of time binging TV and blogging. I try and get out of the house and be social when I can. My anxiety can make it hard, though, especially with things like networking events that I can't get out of. Thankfully, I have a good support network who help me through the worst of it.
      It's nice to meet you all.

      I didn't realize I posted this in the wrong place the first time. oops. I'm not used to forums.
       
      So, I've sorted through a lot of the 'issues' I've had with how I was thinking before and I think I have a handle on how to live a content life or at least function. I have social anxiety and depression.
      I learned how to retrain my way of thinking if that makes sense, so I am hopeful. The thing is, if I have any shade of a doubt about whether I am right or wrong about something than I know the paranoia will just come back later.
      Getting to the point. I am occasionally paranoid that people can hear my thoughts. The theory is that the majority of people know about it. maybe everybody can do it, maybe not. Maybe it doesn't happen all of the time, maybe they only hear when they are listening in. They talk about it when they think I can't hear them, or when they think they are being discreet enough that someone as dumb as me won't know what they are talking about. They won't admit to it because it is better if I don't know, like if I do then it will make me feel too self conscious, only make me feel worse and it won't help me any. I do feel like I have evidence of it when I replay some older memories, but I also am rational enough to look for other explanations for the memories, but I don't feel convinced enough that I can let it go. 
      I know I should see a doctor, but I don't have medical insurance. so far visiting forums and chatting with people who can relate has helped, so I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the subject.
