Anxiety and feeling unreal

I really need some hope. I had my first panic attack in April 2014. I haven't had a panic attack since last summer and I'm back on track. However, since that first panic attack I've been stuck in this dream like state 24/7 for over a year! I am so afraid I will be this way the rest of my life, even though my therapist assures me it's temporary. It's hard too see the light when you're in the darkness. Reassuring words would be so helpful. I am now 17 and going into my senior year of high school and don't want to feel this way all next year :( I read forums and see people who have had it for YEARS... Scares the you know what out of me.

  • Very interesting you say its hard to see the light when your in darkness. I also believe you will come out the other side of this and be of great help to other. Sometimes we need to change our thinking. 17 is a superb age and your ready for many amazing things ahead. God loves you and wants you to be happy and full of joy in your heart.

    Look up Clayton Jennings on you tube, give it a try. I understand that dream like feeling and over the years it ws focusing on the many good in my life and not letting the negative in. So for today cause thats all we all have I hope you got through it well. Step out of the darkness your in and come into the light. God wants you to shine and sine bright. He has great plans for you. I don't like religion but God truly has helped me overcome many many fears and anxieties I never thought would go away.

    Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus || Spoken Word look him up he is amazing.

    You have nothing to be scared of if you believe your never alone x x

    Hope you can listen into these two guys and am here if you need a friend x

  • Derealisation is your minds way of coping with high anxiety and stress, still it is very scary been going through this for five months now and it has gotten a lot better, the more you fight it the worse it gets if you just let it be there it will go away,

  • Fear maintains it any kind, once you accept it and live your life it will gradually fade, i have mostly lingering sensations left but i would say i am 85% recovered and i achieved this only in a couple of weeks, if you have any questions feel free to pm me
