Derealization: Derealization: an alteration in the perception or experience of the external world so that it seems strange or unreal. From a psychodynamic perspective, derealization is a psychological defense mechanism that can protect one against a variety of negative feelings, conflicts, or experiences. There are medical/neurological causes of this phenomena as well, so--in either case--please see your doctor.

Loneliness: Loneliness is a big problem for humans, since we're basically social beings. But since you feel like you're "going crazy insane, " i suggest seeing a psychiatrist or other mental health professional who can help you with these feeling. At least their intensity can be assessed, and some suggestions can be made about your situation. On your own you can seek out companionship & involvement w/others.

Consider calling 911: Although sometimes there are people with very active imaginations who use aspects of their inner world to cope with stress, if you are actually struggling with hallucinations you will need medical evaluation urgently. Calling 911 and getting emergency medical services to your house may be the best move if you are turning psychotic. Stay safe.

Stress: You have to think if you are under a lot of stress, overworked, too busy or juggling too many duties. Sometimes juggling family responsibilities, a job and managing finances can be overwhelming. Some people deal with it by isolating while others start feeling irritable. If you have an acute stress in your life, talk to a therapist so you can help resolve the issue.
