    Yeah, I definitely agree that it is a symptom, not a disorder. At the time I was anxious and depressed following a bad drug experience which sort of made me take a look at my life and made me question who I was and the world around me. I guess it opened up my eyes to a lot of things about myself that I really wasn't able to handle. My depersonalization would often follow with panic attacks and I was 16 at the time too. I dealt with it on my own, only telling a few of my close friends. I began running everyday, really focusing on the people around me who I cared about and spent a lot of time reflecting and accepting myself. I still get anxiety sometimes but nothing to that extent. it was a pretty terrifying experience, especially if you don't know what's going on, you feel like you're going crazy. I find what helped me was to always be busy, because I was really stuck inside my own head just dwelling on negative things.

    Funny...just today I had some intense depersonalization..It's actually a pretty scary thing..
    Other than that, I get panic attacks (I've been getting less lately) caused by moderate emetophobia.

    I also have an inferiority complex which is no fun at all.
    I use a unconscious defence mechanism that is common in people with inferiority complexes.

    I automatically can name flaws of people around me to subconsciously and temporarily make myself feel better. Yet it fails to work because I end up seeing myself as a narcissistic idiot and the cycle continues.. Lately I haven't really experienced it in a while, but the complex does like to surface once in a while.

    I put the letters in bold and underlined them to reinforce the words "subconscious" and "unconscious" because there is a common misconception.A lot of people say that bullies or other insecure people put others down to make themselves feel better. This gives them the false image of a horrible person ; they are merely acting upon a defence mechanism.

    That's why I think bullies should really be getting treatment other than just punishment (they should get punished, but be treated afterwards). The way to break the cycle isn't to spread awareness or get people to tell on teachers. It's to stop the bullies themselves, and to do that, you have to get rid of that insecurity.
    Anyway, sorry for getting off topic..

    It actually could be a disorder ; Depersonalization disorder..
    It's characterized by recurrent feeling of depersonalization and/or derealization.

    People often confuse derealization and depersonalization.
    Derealization is when the surrounding environment and its objects, people..etc seem unreal and distant.
    Depersonalization is when one and their emotions feel detached.It's often more intense than derealization.

    Also, to be considered a disorder, it has to cause significant difficulties in your life and be persistent.
    The fact the OP hasn't gone to a psychologist or anything shows it probably isn't a disorder.

    Social anxiety disorder is debilitating to say the least. Personally, I hate when every conversation you have with every other human being feels like a job interview and having to be constantly hyper-vigilant about what you say and do for fear of judgment and being gossiped about. It's one mental illness I'd really love to flip the middle finger to and just go out and enjoy life in full technicolor.

    It's fine! I got bullied before and even up till now, I have an inferiority complex too. I totally absolutely emphasise with you and i know what you're going through. I'm sure there're many people out there who've experienced bullying too.
    I really like your last paragraph on how bullies should be getting treatment. The current solutions to bullying aren't adequate and so many victims are suffering in silence from the long-lasting effects.
    I had mild depersonalisation today again too...and it sucks. big time.
    I'm not sure if my inferiority complex is causing depression or anything because when I'm out and social, I don't remember anything from the days of bullying. Yet when i'm alone, it all comes back and resurfaces. I think that's the unconscious part of me, under all the false confidence.
    I have no idea how to go about solving this. But I know, many people share similar experiences. And that makes me feel a whole lot better.

    Depersonalization is not a mental disorder. It's a cognitive experience, but most, if not all, of us experience it at least once in our lives and to varying extents.

    To my knowledge, it does not need to occur when you are in extreme stress situations, but it can be a symptom of anxiety disorder.
