Not real

Hi CS, i am struggling with reality, sometimes things just feel as though they are not real. My meds have increased, I had two good days but now I'm back again to what I'm almost calling normal because I have been like this so long. What is wrong with me, its not a mood, its as though I move out of myself - Please, please your opinion.

This can be very complex. Sounds like you're talking about a condition familiar to you rather than strictly normal. Such concerns can be part of your basic illness. Also, though, there are conditions or symptoms that seem to ahve their own life, as Derealization ( things around me don't seem real ) and Depersonalization ( the stuff out there seems normal, but I don['t feel as though I am real ). And some such symptoms can also arise from epileptic type phenomena, some can be related to a side-effect of some specific drugs.
Again, its your own doc, knowing all the gory details, who is best placed to analyze such a situation, and try to make sense of it.
