yes i did.. i used to look at things and name them to prove to myself i havenít lost the plot

i used to think life was like the matrix and question what if this isnt real what if this is a dream

all just a product of my imagination, i learned to ignore them as they meant nothing, yes i felt horrible and strange but it could never hurt me.

i found the following online

"derealization occurs in the context of constant worrying or 'intrusive thoughts' that one finds hard to switch off. In such cases it can build unnoticed along with the underlying anxiety attached to these disturbing thoughts, and be recognized only in the aftermath of a realization of crisis, often a panic attack, subsequently seeming difficult or impossible to ignore. This type of anxiety can be crippling to the affected and may lead to avoidant behavior. Those who experience this phenomenon may feel concern over the cause of their derealization. It is often difficult to accept that such a disturbing symptom is simply a result of anxiety, and the individual may often think that the cause must be something more serious. This can, in turn, cause more anxiety and worsen the derealization. Derealization also affects the learning process. Because the individual almost sees the events as if in 3rd person, they cannot properly process information"

in other words its your minds way of protecting you when in fact all it does is makes your more worried as your feel abnormal.. leave it be it will pass in its own time.. trust me..

Thanks for your answer, ive read that text before and i know it will pass but im still afraid that this is the first stage of schizophrenia.
The only symptoms i have is:
Little dizzy
The feeling that something will happen
I feel weird, put i dont know how to explain it...

I know its far away from beeing schizophrenia but ive feelt really good over a year and now suddenly this fear pops up again, it can be that it is 10 years since my mother died in cancer but i dont know. It feels like a big setback because ive feelt so good and i have been abroad and doing things i like and now i feel like all this is gonna start over....

yea that is typical of a set back. google anxiety no more and got to the set back section..

its basicly a thought or feeling that bring it all back and makes you feel like your back to sqaure one, it is typical of anxiety and the same thing happend to me last sept..

i had thoughts that i was being poisned and people where after me. anxiety grips on to anything that makes you scared

dont pay it any attention no matter how loud it scream at you.

there is also a ***** page for anxiety no more and he had put loads of blogs on.. i always post on it myself to help others over come this condistion.

i will put a link in for the page that explains set backs.. give it a read,,

i hope the MODS allow it lol

your story is smilar to mine.. yes its a scary thought but that realy is all it is a unwanted intrusive thought like all the wrest.. ignore it carry on pay it no attention no matter how loud it shouts. yes you will feel worse to begin with as you are not doing anything to bring down the anxiety but it will come down itself with no help from you

when i 1st started with these thoughts with accepetance when i had a schitz thought i would just agree with it thus willing it to prove me wrong.. face the fear and do it anyway.. only way to over come it is to face it as once you face it and you see no matter what the thought is that infact you are completley sane your mind will then let go of that thought as you no longer fear it... yes its hard but not any harder than it already is.

i was the same... agree with it then leave it dont question it let your mind race, by doing this you are facing the what if.... read over the full page that i put a link to there is so much... if you have fcae book search for his page its called anxiety no more.... if you dont have fcae book then click on the blog section on the website as he posts a lot on there on how to face your fear and how to learn to accept

questioning if formed through bad habit,, as in get a thought.. question the thought.. then this causes more anxiety then you get reassurance.. anxiety lowers then you start again...

you need to form a new habit and that is not to question but to leave it alone and carry on with your life with it beside you...

acceptance isnít easy as habits are hard to brake but with time you will form a new habit and that is not to question the thoughts but to see them for what they are

i can remember back when this 1st hit me that i ran to my mothers house crying saying i need locked up but i dont want to be and so on.. its all a false fear

now i ham happy i do what i want when i want regardless of how my anxiety makes me feel..

what you said sound to me like what i had..

my psychologist said to me if you where psychotic or schitz you wouldnít question the thoughts and say its not real it would be 100% real

also people who have schitz cant rationalise there thoughts cant tell the difference between fiction and fact.

its just anxiety... i used to here a sound then double check if i heard it and if i was hearing things

all anxiety just donít pay it any attention its just am intrusive thought that all

the more you pay it attention the more it will come

the more you donít pay it any respect the fear weakens and it dissipates through time
