I'm scared I'm going insane ?

It's gotten really bad over the last couple of days, it started off with me being worried I have psychosis or schizophrenia. This is because I have derealization 24/7 I feel really out of it and lightheaded. I also feel like I'm disconnected from my family and feel on edge all the time. I'm also forgetting to do simple things that I normally would really easily and saying and doing things that I would t do normally I just don't feel like myself anymore ? I'm so scared.

Last night I fell asleep and then woke up suddenly two hours later and had no idea where I was or who I was and I was so confused and my ears were completely blocked it was so scary. And today I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing my thoughts and all jumbled up and I'm recently getting really random 'mind pops' of information for eg just before I had one on this page in a childhood book I read. It's starting to really scare me and I think I'm going insane ?? Please help??

Haven't you got someone at home that you can go to? This must be awful for you.

Hello Sarah just wanted to let you know I experienced all you have written about and it's scary. Are you on meds as the meds I was on at that time made me paranoid. I truly hope you have help. It is part of depression I still suffer but not as intense as before. You can pm at any time if you like for a chat. Hugs xxxxxx


I wondered if you have been to your GP and asked about this and been referred to a specialist?
