I feel like I'm not real

So I started to smoke weed not TOO long ago. First time I smoked was when I was 12. I had a very bad panic attack and promised not to do it again. Then, I hit the age of 14, and started doing it again. The time I started doing it again was at a friends house. I had a small hit, didn't take in too much, and didn't hold it in too long. It was like a breathe in breathe out thing. The Weed Brand was diablo. I think that's what it's called. Then later I did some Green Crack, which is another weed brand, and I had a HUGE hit of that, and started coughing a lot after. The next day after I smoked the green crack and diablo and stuff, I started to feel REALLY fake. Like I wasn't there. Like everything was a dream, and I was like.. inside of my head. Went away the next day. I felt INSANE. Like I couldn't control myself. Later, within I think.. a week or two, I smoked again. I smoked Chronic, which is a weed brand. I didn't hold it in too much, took a few small hits of two joints. Breathed in and out quickly. Then a day or two after that, maybe a few, I started feeling fake again! And I couldn't come out. I felt like I was in a dream, like I couldn't control anything, like I was inside my head. even when i talked to my mom i felt fake. i didn't know what to do, and i still feel this way. im looking for an answer or some reassurance to know i'm not going crazy. I feel like I am, and i honestly can't take it. I think I was becoming addicted to the weed. But, my life is full of anxiety and stress. So anxiety and stress don't mix too well with weed, right? So now I feel like i'm not really here. And I've looked around, some answers say it's because of the weed and that the THC is stored in my fatty cells, and that i'll be like this for two months. Others say depersonalization disorder. Others say it'll wear off, that my brain just isn't used to it, and i shouldn't do it again. I've been like this for about maybe a week? I can barely focus in school. I have to be with friends, laughing, or doing something active to stop thinking about it otherwise i'd think too much and be inside my head too much and panic. I just want out. Any answers to tell me HOW to get out of this? Lets see what other info I can list. I feel like i need to pinch myself to know i'm real. And I feel disconnected from my friends and stuff. My friend said it was like a "semi-perminate fry" meaning it's gonna last a while, but I need to not think about it or it'll get worse. Depersonalization order was taken into consideration by myself, as well. Answers? I don't need to lose my head. Damn, above the fucking influence from now on.

It's the anxiety. My friend has anxiety and he had a major panic attack last time he smoked weed. ANXIETY + WEED = PANIC ATTACKS!

lol.. i was paranoid too and thought i had it.

ya, it's probably just your brain saying it doesn't want it.. just stop doing it. you should be fine. i'm a huge over-thinker so i know exactly how you feel.

you've only had it for a week so don't panic. wait 2-3 months to see if its still there. i think i KIND of know what you mean by feeling like you're not real. like everything is a mental projection, right? or maybe i'm wrong.. i think i myself overthink my experience and it probably doesn't relate to depersonalization...

anyway, you should be fine :)

go to my post for help or just listen to this, ALL U HAVE TO DO IS FORGET ABOUT IT AND ACCEPT IT AS SOMETHING U HAVE TO GO THROUGH. IT WILL ONLY BECOME STRONGER THE MORE U THINK ABOUT URSELF AND UR DEPERSONALIZATION. IF U FORGET ABOUT IT AND LET IT DO ITS THING, U WILL GET OVER EVENTUALLY. IT IS TEMPORARY AS LONG AS U KEEP IT OFF UR MIND. :D

I felt like this for a while, I would feel like I'm in a shell of my body. I stopped smoking for around a month and I feel much better.
Comment Hidden (show)
Eh, I'm sort of getting used to it, and at times I'll feel like it's kind of going away. I just try not to think about it. Thanks, "TheGuyWhoLovesSpicyStuff", I'm SORT OF getting better. I know i'll get better. I'm not scared anymore. I just think about it a lot sometimes, then get over it when I'm doing something else or being active.

Hmmmm let's not think for s moment that the shit you're smoking is screwing with your brain..... For real, long term!!! Dude, every jackass thinks he's the newest chemist who's going to crank out the next great high by throwing shit in his stuff before he sells it huh!! Unless you know exactly where it came from, leave it alone before too much damage is done!! Getting high off straight pot, is not complicated eh!? They are screwing with the shit!

ive gone through the EXACT same thing man....it comes and goes....just chill about it...i freaked out my 1st time as well...just dont smoke on "binges" its all fine....just some depersonalization m8

I had a problem like this, except I couldn't stop thinking about how I felt like I was going to die really soon. I had this for a few weeks... It freaked me out when I was driving because I couldn't stop thinking about getting into a car accident and driving. Very scary stuff.

I also have some major OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), and It stopped when my friend told me that it was just an obsessive thought that I couldn't stop thinking about because of my OCD, and within a couple of days I snapped out of it. Very weird.

It could be an epileptic seizure. Seizures cause depersonalization. First of all I'd get the fuck off weed. If you're having seizures you'll want to find out now. Go to a neurologist and describe it to him.

Epilepsy affects all age groups. It tends to affect men more than women. In children, the cause is generally unknown or genetic, and the risk is highest in the first year of life, declining until the age of ten. People aged 10-55 will most likely develop epileptic seizures from brain injuries or infections (trauma, tumors, encephalitis/meningitis.) As people approach 55+ years, the risk for epilepsy again increases because of strokes, brain tumors, or Alzheimer's disease (all sources of injury to the brain.) At every stage in life, 50% of epileptic seizures are of unknown origin. YOU DUMB ASS AND I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM HES TALKING ABOUT AND I DONT THINK ITS THE WEED IT NOT GOOD FOR YOY BUT DOESINT CUSE THIS

I too have felt like this and still feel like this since the age of 16 but it wasnt cus of the weed. I was totally normal before 16 and out of nowhere this one day I started to freak out in my own mind and have anxiety issues. I later on started to smoke weed and it made things worse. Now I feel like Im in a movie,like I could die any moment and I feel as if Im trapped inside my own mind as if everything is a dream. I feel like Im not real as you mentioned,sometimes I even feel invisible and I somehow feel like Im not going to be myself anymore. Good luck

What do you expect? You use strong drugs and then are surprised you don't feel real or normal? Every time you use a narcotic, smoke cigarettes or use alcohol you poison yourself and take a risk. Everyone does as they wish, but you'd be better off spending your time in the library, dude. You feel unreal because you made yourself unreal.

You are not real then

I do this too. Do you believe in past lives? Sometimes people dont feel connected to thier"new body or vehicle rather". I suggest you go to youtube, and look up Dr.Delbert blair supreme beings 1-10. Dont take meds for this! You have a gift, you are not souless! Only a few Souls are reincarnated. Be happy with it, and learn how to look deeper inside your self! i do this everyday, and at first it can seem scary. But its just the "real" you waking up. :)

''You shouldn't be smoking weed. Some people have latent psychoses which are unleashed when they smoke.''

Man, stop scaring people!!!!!! I understand you, you want to help him... but, search deep on the internet, and find the truth about weed. My advice is to smoke natural weed, and go deep 'into yourself', meed another state of your mind, don't be scared.. Only stupid people; THE clones, have fear of Death!! Think outside the box! 99% of scientists 'are paid to lie', sooner or later you will start to see...
And I want to tell you a secret, but you need a strong brain (abstract thinking, analytic thinking ..etc. ) to understand .. We are all crazy .... - is this a bad thing, NOOO!!!!!! Analyze yourself and you will find amazing things... Evolve man... Don't be scared!! Try to think with your brain not with others brain.. Make your own observations....

Depersonlization/Derealization

And what fuels this is anxiety the more you think about it the worse it will get, Please listen to me i've had this for a long time just forgot about it and move on with your life it's the only way to heal.

Trust me I used to feel that way all the time! When my dad died when I was 10 I started feeling like nothing was real. I went to a few phyc doctors and finally 10 years later I found out it was just my anxiety and panic attacks. Anxiety can f*ck with your mind! You just need to relax and don't focus on the bad feelings you get with anxiety. Don't pay attention to it and take deep breaths!! Also weed has actually helped my anxiety!!! I'm a total stoner now! <3 weed. I'm actually pretty stoned off some good green crack AND Alaskan thunderfuck right now.

You shouldn't be smoking weed. Some people have latent psychoses which are unleashed when they smoke.

Go out in nature, relax, spend time around positive people who don't smoke weed. In time you will gradually normalize, but don't smoke weed anymore, regardless of peer pressure. It seems like you are doing it even though you know it is bad for you. So why? You are at a critical stage in your development and don't want to throw your life away by becoming schizophrenic and totally numb.

I had a strong reaction to weed in college and I had a similar feeling for a few days and I even suspect one of my eyes started to wander on its own! I felt like a nut and trash. In time that cleared away, but the damage always remains a little, just like with any trauma.

So long as you follow a healthy life, nature will heal you in time.

Dude you need to chill out. The feeling is all in your head, you just need to get past it. It's a feeling you're not used to and you're just overthinking it. Just snap out of it. If you can't, you have a weak mind and you shouldn't smoke weed.

You are an idiot, the guy linked to a website explaining the symptoms and what they are feeling, giving reassurance to the original poster of this thread. Yes, the link included a buy a book link at the very bottom of the page, but this was obviously not him trying to sell the said book. Jesus man, did you not see his first 5 posts trying to help the guy that had nothing to do with any links? Did you even click the link? Shut the fuck up.
