What is wrong with me?

I have been having panic attacks alot because there something going with me.

Lately, I have been thinking/and feeling like nothing is real, everything looks unreal, sometimes I feel like I am in a dream.Sometimes I panic because I think/feel like everything is not real but just my imagination, like I am not real.

When I look into the mirror, I feel like it is not me and when I look at my hands I feel like there not my hands.I feel like a stranger to myself and when I look around everything looks different.When I look at my family I know it's my family but sometimes it seems like the are strangers.

And when I am talking I feel like words are just coming out of my mouth, like I am really not saying them and when I am touching something it feels like I am really not touching that thing.

And sometimes when I am leaving a room, I feel like my body is still in that room.And sometimes I would zone out a lot, usually when I am around people.I feel detached from my body.

Can someone please explain what is going on?

I am tired of feeling this way, my family is no hope, they make a joke out of it, sometimes I feel like just hurting myself, or just end my life.I feel hopeless, I feel like I am going crazy.My anxiety is getting worse.So please if you know anything, I would like some answers, thank you.

  • I've had those feelings before , my doctor said it was anxiety. .. Don't worry just try to think positive and tell yourself it's anxiety and it will go away. I know it's really hard to cope with this and is very scary. You are not the only one that has had this feeling of not belonging. .. I have feel it.Hope you can learn to deal with this try prayer and have faith in everything you do.

  • Thank you!!

  • It's depersonalization. 😞 very uncomfortable but you will be ok! Read about it online. Understanding our issues is power so learn about it. It will make you feel better and don't get down about it! It's very common for anxiety!

  • Thank you!

  • Is it normal to zone out alot.Usually when Im doing something or walking I zone out.It just feels like I havent slept in a very long, even though I do get enough sleep.I feel like everything is fake, like i am in a dream,movie or my imagination.is this normal?

  • I've felt this before and it's pure hell. I have come out of it.

    Right now I'm going through it because of a shocking breakup that left me with high anxiety, stress, depression and thoughts that I keep fighting because of high level anxiety.

    I'm on 2 a day Wellbutrin 150 mg a day that I just started 3 weeks ago.

    Sometimes I'm at wits end but my belief is in God that he will see me through.

    Hang in there with all your might.

    Seek support. Go to cognitive therapy that's what I'm going to start doing because I want to learn how I can fight this thing before it comes on.

    Please email for support.

    We both need it.

    I'm a mom of 3 and want to be well for them.


    IT GOES AWAY just try hard to stay calm( easier said than done)
