Finding Ground in a Disconnected World

As a 57-year-old man struggling with derealization anxiety, I often feel like I’m living in a world that’s not quite real. It’s like I’m watching my life from the outside, disconnected and unable to fully engage. It’s been a difficult road, but I’ve found some techniques that have helped me. Mindfulness meditation has been a game-changer for me, as it helps me ground myself in the present moment. I also find solace in connecting with others who understand what I’m going through. It’s a slow process, but I’m learning to accept and navigate my derealization anxiety. I want to encourage others who are experiencing the same thing - there is hope, and you are not alone.
