Travis Barker’s son, Landon Barker, recently admitted that he is battling a little-known psychological disorder called “derealization.” But what does it mean?
Here is everything you need to know.
Everything we know about derealization
Derealization is a psychological disorder that makes you feel as if you are living in a dream world.
According to reports, it affects 2% of the population in the world and 6.4 million people in the United States of America.
Also, few people with the ailment have said that it makes them feel like robots. While some described it as looking at life through a piece of glass. Also, others claim that it feels like they are in a movie.
An article on the official Mayo Clinic website stated: “Depersonalization-derealization disorder occurs when you have a persistent or repeated sense that you are observing yourself from outside your body or have a sense that things around you surround are not real or both”. ‘
He added: ‘The feelings of depersonalisation and derealisation can be very disturbing and can feel like you are living in a dream.’
