Feeling so trapped in my own head!
« on: January 11, 2014, 06:37:25 PM »
This feeling has been with me for a while now- probably near on three months. I'll be brief and concise here, mainly because I don't have the energy to go into too much detail.

Basically, It feels like I'm living in side my own head, which in turn is creating the a perception as if I'm a spectator of my own life. It's like I'm a pair of floating eyes wondering around. Anyone else here experience this? I realise this is a product of myself, watching myself, analysing every thought and feeling, so I have become isolated in my own head. It's a very weird feeling and I'd like some advice of people who have been through this please:))

It does sound like a form of derealization. Like you have taken a step back from life and are looking at things from a distance. Derealization can come in many shapes and forms. But it always this feeling of detachment with it. Only you can know if this is how you are feeling exactly. No real magic cure. That sort of thing tends to just up and vanish by itself. At best you can try distract yourself. Give yourself things to do. Keep track of how you are feeling too in a copy book. So you can read back over it and see if there has been any changes. Or where you would like to make changes. Sadly there is no little pill that can change this feeling. It is one of those things we just have to work through.

This is the first time I have found somebody who experiences the same as me.  I find myself feeling trapped in my own head and feel there is no escape.  I get sick of words and images going through my head and just want to shut off!! It is anxiety because when I feel calmer I dont notice it as much.  Have you tried meditating or writing down how you feel? Are you under a dr? x

Thanks for the replies. I do believe it is most certainly anxiety as mine comes and goes too.

I am under a Doctor, yes, and she has recently prescribed me Prozac as I'm depressed too.

I just came across this, which Is exactly what we're going through (to the above poster):
