I wouldn't say I have a disorder, but I have had panic attacks in university and have had feelings of anxiety-related psychological disconnection a few times in my life.
Last week Sunday, I went to the funeral of a co-worker who was brutally murdered. The day of the funeral, I was mentally out of it. My heart was racing, mouth was dry and it all felt like a dream. Call it 'auto-pilot mode'. I wasn't conscious of time whatsoever and it felt like the longest day ever.
I was frazzled after the funeral, felt very unsociable, cloudy and just could not mentally function. I went to a friend's house and just broke down in tears and couldn't shift my focus off the death.
I've been to a lot of funerals and have never felt this way.
I know my mind was mentally preparing for the funeral the day I got the news, so this possibly lead to increased anxiety the day of the funeral.
My short-term memory was very frazzled the day after but the following day, I was completely back to normal as if nothing had happened.
Has anyone else ever felt this way? Does this sound like something else?
