Does anybody feel like your mind and body are detached ? Depersonalization

I hate this feeling more than anything, I feel like I'm seeing the world through a glass kinda if that makes sense . I feel sometimes like a stranger to myself, I know they say anxiety can cause this and Prozac too but I wish it would just go away, I'm always a highly stressed individual and have issues sleeping and focusing . What can I do ?

It sucks. I have this extreme fear that I'm gonna stop breathing or fall over or have a heart attack etc. I was good for awhile and now the anxiety is back , I hate when people don't understand us. It sucks every day feeling this way and not knowing what to do about it

Haha me too! Everyday i fear death.. You know we shouldn't worry cause everyone here feels the same. All of us here understand each other. Just keep reminding yourself that you're breathing , check your pulse i do that to show myself that i have a normal rythme & when the panic starts i sing & listen to music , try that!!!!!

Do you also feel like you're sinking inside your own body while trying to breathe?

Exactly. It's so weird and confusing it's like you don't feel real , your just " here"

The feeling of escaping your own body but unable to. It's a crazy feeling. This is the worst part when you think no one can help you but only yourself. Once we pass this feeling we are actually able to control anxiety.

Oh tell us what to do when you visit the psychiatrist. I would like to go to a psychiatrist but it's really expensive.. 100$ for only 1 session & im not sure it's even a full hour...
