What Depersonalisation Feels Like

Apart from trauma or panic attacks, a bad drug experience can trigger depersonalisation disorder, as a feeling of dying or going mad can cause extreme, lasting anxiety.

The most common cause is cannabis usage, where a bad trip can cause a feeling of losing one’s mind. 

Some people also report:

  1. Seeing the world from outside their bodies
  2. A feeling of extreme dizziness.
  3. Being stuck in a dream.
  4. Seeing everyone around them as robots.
  5. Altered time perception.
  6. Philosophical insights.
  7. Emotional withdrawal.
  8. Forgetfulness
  9. Blankness.
