I feel kind of embarrassed posting this, but oh well.
I'm still quite young, but I have NEVER DONE DRUGS.
I have, however, always been somewhat of a perfectionist. Now in high school, I've been obsessing about excellence all of the time. Compounding this, I have been having issues with my family. For instance, I cant seem to get along with my brother at all. Although this might not seem like much, it has definitely taken a toll on me. I am also aware that my family is prone to mental illness. I know several of my relatives are currently suffering from depression, and of one that committed suicide awhile back.
Anyways, for a few years, I have progressively been having constant feelings of derealization. I always feel 'dazed,' unable to concentrate, forgetful, and tired (probably due to the stress). It seems like everything is so surreal, and almost like a dream. The worst part, however, is that nothing seems real. I feel completely drained of many of my emotions. These all cause problems for me, because I find that I have to compensate for my lack of concentration by studying something over and over until it finally just sinks in. I am always making blunders that make people around me frustrated and angry, which makes me feel like a total idiot. I always worry about forgetting relatives and happy memories, so I have started a journal to help me remember things that I dont want to forget. I know that memory problems may be common in some people, but not like this in teenagers. I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.
As I alluded to, this problem has been around for a few years, but has only progressively gotten worse. I only recently learned about these types of disorders in a psychology class that Im taking. Although this could be worse, Im still worried. Is this problem stress-related in your opinion(s)? Have I inherited some sort of predisposition toward mental illness from my family? What on earth should I do, because this is real?! I wish somebody could give me some pointers, because I feel like Im going crazy. Im only a high schooler, but it seems like I am bearing the burdens of an adult.
Thanks for any help.

i think some of it or can be related to stress, as it comes on very badly when im angry or something. but it always lurkes when im not. the only time it ever seems to go is when im so busy doing something that i completely forget about.
but this has been an ongoing thing for 2 years, i had a break from it for about 6 months inbetween, but then came back.
if anyone can find a reason whyh this is happening i'd also liek to know. mine started when i had a bad trip of cannabis, like alot of other people in another thread.
good luck man.
