Hi bell23

I had that dreadful symptom for just over 2 years, it felt like I was watching everything through someone else's eyes, I really thought I was going crazy and I was the same thinking that no-one else had it until I came on here. Gradually it faded month by month until eventually it just went. I thought I would have it forever but the good news is you can get rid of it, I just tried to keep distracting myself and to not think about it (hard to do I know) but if I hadnt I'd probably still have it now. I used to stand with my feet flat on the floor with my eyes closed and feel the ground under my feet and think if my feet are on the ground then I must be real - sounds weird now but it helped me a lot.

Take care
