confused and unsettled

Hi, this is my first post on here.

I have dealt with depression now for 16 years now off and on but I guess that is the nature of the beast.

I cant tell you or any body else what makes me feel this way. That's if you can say this numbness feeling is "feeling"??! lol

With this current period I am finding it really difficult to concentrate and feel really confused on what I am supposed to be doing. I am getting the usual feelings of even thinking about going out sends shivers down my spine but now I am feeling forgetful and can be easily distracted.

Does anybody else feel like that? Its starting to make me panic as things are starting to pile up and I am going down the rabbit hole even more.

Yes I thin most with anxiety will relate to how you are feeling

Our minds when we suffer with anxiety get overloaded & I think they shut down to give us a break , that is when we can get forgetful & start to feel numb & when we do we panic which creates more forgetfulness , the more we can relax the less forgetful we become

Hope you get some more replies x


It may be worth looking on Action on Depression forum as your main symptom seems to be depression and there may be some helpful posts for you on there.
