Feeling like I'm not all here

I've been diagnosed with anxiety and ADHD. I'm not taking any medication.

So lately (for about a month) I've been feeling sort of light headed, tired, and feel like part of my mind is somewhere else. At first I thought it was just tiredness, but I took a nap and it was the same. I seem to be able to zone out easier than ever (which isn't all bad, since I feel calm when I zone out and I don't have any thoughts running through my head) but it's staring to worry me. I've also been confusing some of my real-life memories with my past dreams, but I'm able to figure them out in a few minutes.

This is hopefully just ADD, and I'm going back on meds soon

Hi! Your symptoms of lightheadedness, fatigue and zoning out are exactly what's happening with me lately.. All of these symptoms are characteristic of anxiety disorders. I get so upset because by mid-afternoon, I have to take a nap, and this is after sleeping in that morning. I can't get through a day anymore without extra sleep. I also zone out frequently, but oddly enough like you said, it's somewhat comfortable so I don't mind. I'm at ease when I'm zoned out. Anxiety has also significantly affected my short term memory. Ask me what I did yesterday? No idea. I need a few minutes to really think about it. Ugh. Just wanted you to know you aren't alone. I am starting medication next week and hope to be cleared of some of these nasty symptoms. Hang in there,

Amy :)
