    depersonalisation/derealisation

    Hi there.

    I hope someone will be able to give me some useful tips on how to cope with the above and also anxiety and depression which came along with it. I had a breakdown 4 years ago and this is the wayi it has left me. I no longer feel part of the world as I knew it and I desperetely want to get back into it. I have a gorgeos grandchild but I can't connect with him as I feel so cut off from everything. The medication I was on didn't agree with me so I am on week 2 of new ad's. Itake an occasional valium but they don't seem to help me much. Somedays I feel I can't go on much longer feeling like this and then I think of my family. Before this happened I had a very responsible job in Student Counselling and I think the stress of this and other personal factors (underactive thyroid) broght all this on. I would be very grateful for any replies.
    Thank you in advance

    Your anxiety is the human representation of the pictures that you paint using your many vivid colours of revolving and reoccurring thoughts.
