Feeling alienated from the environment

Derealization is an uncomfortable, bad feeling, like there is something wrong. Somehow, in a strange way, something does not feel right. It is disorienting, like you feel a bit of vertigo. You feel like you are blown away and upset. There is a uncomfortable and strange feeling, almost like you have a hard time waking from a dream,  sometimes it just looks smokey or misty. Sometimes it sounds like sounds are off in a distance. You feel like a robot or a puppet. All of a sudden, you family doesn't seem to be your family. You don't recognize your house, you see the familiar house, but it does not feel like your house. You have brain fog and trouble concentrating. Ruminating and trouble sleeping.
