What is going on with me?!
« on: May 26, 2014, 07:55:52 AM »
I hope someone can give me insight on this, know what I'm going through, have experienced this or just tell me I really am going crazy like I feel I am..... This is really hard to describe, so if it doesn't make sense, I'm sorry. As I'm sitting in the passenger seat of our car typing this, I'm fully aware that I'm doing this, I understand we are driving down the highway headed home after a mini vacation for Memorial Day, but I just don't feel all here..... I feel lik I'm going crazy on the inside. I feel sorta spacey almost.
Another instance: my husband and I were driving out of town on Friday night, it was late, I was tired, my anxiety was a little bad. We had been talking, everything was fine for the most part, but he had said something to me, I heard him, I repeated back what he said to me but I couldn't understand what he was saying. It was like I lost all train of thought, had no idea what we were talking about, like I was in a dream almost.
Has anyone ever felt this way? Know what I'm experiencing? I'm freaking out bad, feel somewhat dizzy or just spacey now, feel like I'm going insane to say the least and feel like I need to go check myself I'm somewhere. Please help!

Just depersonalization... "sense of unreality".  TOTALLY common with anxiety!  You feel like you are observing yourself and things going on around you from a distance.   Once I walked into the locker room at the gym and it looked WEIRD!  Like I've never been there before!   Scared me because I even forgot what locker I put my stuff in!  I felt like I wasn't there.    I've had that feeling before so I didn't obsess over it and it never happened again (this was several years ago), but it's all from the "anxious" mind.

yep, this sounds exactly like depersonalization. i had this for months at a time because i kept worrying about what it was. how i got over it was telling myself that it's my brain's way of protecting me and calming me down. when you get depersonalization, it's sort of your brain telling you that it's tired and overworked from being anxious all the time, so it goes into an almost auto-pilot mode, hence the spacey/unreal feeling you get. it's completely harmless and WILL go away with time, trust me.

I'm glad you mentioned this.   I didn't realize that was anxiety related.   Recently, I drove my kids to a soccer game to a place I wasn't really familiar with but when I left to go home, I had a moment where I had no idea where I was.  It took a moment or two to think and replay the whole drive of where I was.  It was a scary feeling.

Yeah, depersonalization is way weird.  Use to happen to me all the time. It has pretty much gone away over time. I use to try and occupy my mind when I started feeling it like with a physical activity or just remembering things from my childhood to remind myself that it all has happened.

Yeah don't worry about it. If you feel depersonalized then you are TOO aware of things to be crazy =p
