Does anyone else feel out of it sometimes?
« on: May 03, 2014, 06:21:45 PM »
I often have these thoughts or even sensations that make me feel out of it, or disconnected with reality. They just come out of the blue. I will be sitting down or where ever, and I will feel strange, like I am alone in my own little world. Or that the world or environment around me isn't real. It is hard to explain. I guess basically a feeling of being disconnected with everything else. Can anyone relate?

it's called Dissociation. It's a very common symptom of panic and anxiety sufferers. It's weird, but almost all of us go through it. Eventually you get used to it. Mirrors set mine off a lot. No one knows exactly what causes the sensations, but its pretty harmless. the worst it can do is scare ya.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depersonalization_disorder If you read this, you'll see it basically lists all your symptoms. Its pretty handy just to be reminded that you aren't alone.

I feel like a zombie at times, I suspect it's sleep schedule related..

Like today, couldn't get a nap in at the usual time, and I've felt like a zombie, and really anxious, not tired, but not energized either.

I swear, I think my medication causes dp , more than I had when my anxiety was unmedicated, it feels like the anxiety is really just finding a way around the med I take, rather than the med eliminating it.

Its derealization...  common with anxiety.  I usually get it at work were my stress is the worst.  Some call it brain fog which feels right too.

It's great to know I'm not alone on this! :) Thanks guys! Anxiety is such a monster sometimes. It's crazy the things and symptoms it can cause.

I've been struggling with this for the last few days. On Wednesday I had a major freak out and the rest of the week I've just been out of it. My brain is trying to catch up I guess. I feel like time is lagging or something. It's such a strange sensation and I hope I smack out of it soon.

In the scheme of things it doesn't matter much.~
