2. What Are the Symptoms of Derealization?

Unlike those afflicted with psychotic disorders, people who experience frequent derealization know that something is wrong with what they’re seeing. Sometimes, they may view things as if through a fog. Everything around them seems muted like they’re in a dream state. At other times, the opposite effect can occur. Colors seem sharper or objects and people can appear unnaturally small or large.

Not all symptoms of derealization are visual. Sounds may seem louder than they should be or they may become muffled, making it hard for the person experiencing derealization to hear what’s going on. Time itself can seem to speed up, slow down or stop completely. Any noticeable change in the way you sense what is happening around you could be an instance of derealization.
