Derealization I guess?


I think I have derealization?

Right now I just feel:

- really foggy like I’m partially not here

- Deja vu-ish.

- On edge

- scared

I have had these Deja vu feelings since last year. If you have looked at any of my past posts you know I am 90% certain I have epilepsy. I don’t shake or anything but sometimes (like when I’m washing dishes) I just zone out or go into la la land. I have been around people when it happened and I asked them if i do anything weird (just my friends and family. Not random people) and they say that I just look kinda scared like I do when I’m having anxiety.

Sometimes these Deja vu feelings come out of the blue and other days I get them when I am doing something stressful. Like this weekend I had some theatre performances (I was up in the lighting booth) and I felt it there too.

Everyone tells me that all of what I am feeling is just my anxiety ( I have GAD) and they get it too, but in the back of my mind I keep thinking “Oh my god I have epilepsy”

I should elaborate a little, it’s not like I know what the person is about to say or anything. It is literally that I just feel like I’ve heard or seen that certain thing before. I cant say that I know what they are gonna say or do next or anything. I legit just feel like “I have seen this thing before” or “I think I had a dream about this once”

Has anyone ever felt like this before cause of anxiety? Any input would be great! Thanks in advance!

I’ve had this a thousand times in my life but I don’t think mine is from anxiety.

What do you think it’s from?

I’m not sure. It feels strange when it happens. Like something happens and I know what is happening next or what someone is going to say already because it’s like I’ve already lived it. It definitely is puzzling!!
