My depersonalization/derealization is worse than usual today, I feel like Im losing my mind. Does anyone know any methods for dealing with this?

Stay busy. The more you think about it the more you'll drive yourself crazy. As long as you keep yourself going and keep your mind off it you'll at least be able to make it through the day.

Do you look at porn or masturbate a lot? Try NoFap as long as you can and see if you feel any better.

Try to go a month without porn, masturbation, or orgasm. Having sex doesnt count.

Look up the app NFCompanion to keep track of your progress.

Keep moving.  Exercise is a great way to gain focus.  Also, stay focused, or at least try to.  I've found that when I concentrate on something I don't hallucinate.  When I drift, then they come back.

thank you for the advice, i've started working out and going on runs, and i feel great but i noticed that my tinnitus like symptoms as well as my visual snow gets worse when im extremely exhausted from say running, is this a good thing? and i have also found that distractions help me ignore it more easily than not.

Being physically tired from exercise  helps my internal mental chatter quiet down.  When that lessens I can focus.  When I'm focused ... well I've written that already.  I don't think exercise is ever a bad thing for those who are able.  It can make one feel exhausted, but it's a mellow exhaustion.
