Feelings

Something is very wrong with me. I feel like a stranger in my own mind and body. I feel like I’m drowning.

Can you explain a bit more? Are your thoughts not seeming to come from you? Is it a sensation you have that feels distant or dissociative from your body? Or have your body or thoughts changed in some way?

I just don’t feel like myself. My thoughts are all jumbled together. I can’t think straight. I feel like I’m not even in my own body

I’m so sorry Cat. Hang in there. Sounds like anxiety symptoms. Do you think so? If so I would suggest deep breathing and doing something relaxing that maybe would allow your thoughts to straighten out and help feel you are in your own body. Usually if I can get myself to, I exercise, pray, meditate, or distract myself by reading or watching a show.

I’ve tried everything and nothing is working. I am so lost and confused. While all this is going on my heart is pounding. I’m having uncontrollable panic attacks. Everything just feels so wrong. I can’t do anything.

I’m so sorry you are going through all of that. Do you have support? A therapist?

I can relate. There is a wrong feeling with me too that I can’t place and it makes me anxious.

It can’t stay this way forever. It will get better.

This will get better! Get outside in the fresh air! Distract your thoughts with other things (tv/book/prayer)...I find my self constantly trying to distract myself from the crazy thoughts in my head (I can't seem to turn my brain off!)
