I'm new to this. Forums have pretty much consumed my life. I've always been a pretty anxious and stressed out person. Panic Attacks have hit me very hard over the last two years. Kind of been rocky as well. Well this has brought on a bout of existential anxiety I would think. These thoughts have been recurring since childhood. But we're in the background as I had more to do, and was not fully aware of them or what it meant to question existence. The thoughts have suddenly moved to the conscious side. Like this: Basically does life have a purpose? Why can I only see through my eyes and not someone else's? Why do I experience life through me but nobody can see what I see? What if this is a movie and I'm the main character? I feel like an alien almost that will never escape or die. Very crazy stuff. I feel like I'm constantly aware of myself and the fact that everyone else is carrying on with their lives unbothered. Makes me feel crazy! Which is completely a lie. I feel cut off from the world when this started to happen. I am on 100 mg of Zoloft. I do believe that is helping to an extent. I have had bouts of anxiety, mostly dealing with thoughts for the last 5 years but have seen peaceful times for a year or two. I have had intrusive thoughts about hurting someone or myself but they cleared up after being on Prozac. Caused lots of anxiety when they would pop up in y mind. They started again but have slowly tapered off again, which I am very thankful of that. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or felt the same.
