for me its the OCD-like issues. Keep in mind I never do this kinda thing when not in a panic/anxiety/prepanic anxiety state. I'll get it in my head that I ened to keep checking to see if my boyfriend's coming home. Why? I don't know. I'll go and check the window, sometime as often as ten minutes, even if im taking a bath. I seriously have no idea what the point of all this is. Its not like he comes home at random times; i know exactly when he'll be back (well, give or take a few minutes.) And its not like anything bad would happen if he showed up, with or without me noticing. We get along as fine as any other couple.

And yet there I go, over and over again, even when i know its stupid.  But if for whatever reason I can get passed this, my anxiety shifts. I take long baths, and in these states i'll keep turning the water off, or barely on at all, out of fear i'm bothering my neighbors below. (apartment.)

These are neighbors who routinely blast music so loud, that I can't hear my own things. And I get obsessively worried with a bath wherre the water is so quiet and slow that it'd take 45 minutes to fill up will upset them. But I'll keep doing it, and I don't know why.  Also a note, I have not once gotten a complaint from them, nor filed a complaint about their noise or anything. So its not like im dreading confrontation.

Oh, and just to make this all the more horrible, for a while we didnt have downstairs neighbors. And yet I kept having that exact same reaction.

I can deal with the terror. Im good at that. What I'm not good at is doing things that have no purpose and never could have any real purpose and yet I get incrediblt nervous. Every time I think "No, I'm not going to check the window again" Boom nervous. Dont even skip a beat.

It is...tedious.

Intrusive/ running thoughts and depersonalization/derealization. By far  :sick0002:.

Not knowing where I am or what I'm doing. Feeling of complete confusion and not being able to comprehend what people are saying.

Depersonalization. I think its the scariest and nastiest symptom ever because it leads to panic.. and goes in a cycle.

Obsessive thoughts. It's like being stuck on a hamster wheel from hell. What's worse is that when I get stuck in the OT loop, I tune out those around me. The syndrome can definitely take a toll on one's relationship.

Not being able to read or do simple math. This happens at my job all the time when I write invoices for people. My mind just goes blank. It's so embarrassing. Does this happen to anyone else?

im having another of my most annoying ones.

Im afraid I overdosed on medicine. Basically, here's what happens. I go to take my medicine, but realize i dont know how long its been since I last did. So I come and check and make sure an appropriate amount of time has passed. Then I go and take my medicine. Immediately upon swallowing, I become doubtful, and think I already took them and have now taken too many.

This isn't a one time fear, mind you. this has happened to me many, many times. And not once did I actually overdose. But of course, i have no physical evidence that I didnt take too many. So I start to panic. and, yeah, then I start to claim the panic symptoms are overdose symptoms.

My god this is irritating. Even thoguh I know i did things specifically to avoid this situation, doubt gets to me. See I know right now i likely didnt overdose. Because im already experiencing 'symptoms' minutes after taking them, which would be really not possible. I know its anxiety.

And in about half an hour, I'll no longer know that its just anxiety. Ugh. so I dwell on whether or not i should make myself throw up. Despite, again, never having actually overdosed ever, let alone the times I thought I did. And yet the terror is building. i can tell.

I have 2 symptoms that are the most annoying. First, I have to use the bathroom a lot when I'm anxious. The second one is dissociation. I feel like my physical name doesn't match up to myself and I feel really disconnected to my body. I hate both of these symptoms a lot. :/
