Hi: Thanks for digging up that old describes the feelings of derealization I have always had since a child, EXACTLY!!!
I do that same thing, esepecially in big stores with a ceiling full of fluorescent lights or long hallways with low ceilings and artifical light. I feel so "out of the scene" that sometimes I have to actually hold on to something to "bring myself back" to reality. I feel on the verge of fainting at that point. I too have to keep blinking and refocus over and over to feel "part of" the scene.
It's scary!
I get it when I'm driving sometimes too and literally have to "give my head a shake" to carry on!
It's all part of Generalized Anxiety Disorder it seems, along with the excessive "thinking" and worrying over and over, planning out strategies for possible terrible situations etc., etc. Although, I'm wondering if the lighting is causing some kind of unusual brain electrical activity???
I have been treated with Celexa (worked quite well, but eventually too many side-effects) with Ativan, as needed, at first. Remeron...terrible stuff for me, Clonazepam..loved it, but my Pdoc doesn't. And now BuSpar, which may have just started working lately, but is also giving me annoying side-effects.
None of the above have stopped the in-store de-realization at all!!
Good luck in finding your answers.
