This is my first ever post on a site like this. I have had anxiety on and off for years now coming in bouts for a few weeks at a time then disappearing for months at a time. But lately its something else.. I had some minor anxiety for a few days (nothing i couldn't deal with). It was Sunday night and i remember telling my flatmate that i was feeling a lot better. Feeling pretty good that i had beaten my old friend anxiety i went off to sleep like a normal Sunday night. I woke up Yesterday morning in a completely spaced out disorientated mindset. Its like i'm over focused on everything i do and completely trapped in my own head. i cant concentrate on anything and i keep analyzing everything i do and think as if i'm going crazy. It is the most unpleasant feeling and i'm so scared i'm going to be trapped in this trance like state forever
Does anyone know if this is anxiety? I've read a bit about similar symptoms.. some people labeling it "de-realization".
But my over active mind keeps thinking "what if" its something else etc etc.. It's got me absolutely terrified. Reading what I've just wrote, i'm not even sure it makes any sense.
