So I get this thing not very often (when I’m alone and outside the house for example, by roads or walking by myself) but it got really bad yesterday. I was in town and very anxious to be in my own (GAD when leaving the house) and as I was walking I felt really weird like I was floating and couldn’t feel the ground under my feet (I could but it was like I was wearing 10 pillows under my feet and as I looked all I could think was don’t trip over and over again because I couldn’t feel the floor. I don’t remember walking 5 mins to the bathroom (even though I knew it was 5 mins walk from the shop I was outside to the toilets) it was almost like I was in auto pilot walking without thinking. When I got to the bathroom and stood up I couldn’t stay still I was swaying and stumbling all over the place I felt like I couldn’t breath normally (it wasn’t a panic attack didn’t have any other symptoms of a PA) went I went out of the stall someone tried to talk to me and I found it really hard to keep that convocation flowing I couldn’t think of the words to stay I kept on staying the same word over and over even though I mean another word. After that convo and putting freezing water on my hands I felt a bit better and more with it but it stayed like this almost the whole way round town. I’m not sure if this is something I should bring up but it was scary as f.
Yes I’ve posted this to the anxiety page but I feel like it should also go here
