Can't seem to help this.

Posted , 3 users are following.

Right I'm not sure what I have, I've had a history of anxiety and depression and I've managed to get over it pretty successfully. Depersonalizations, derealisation, I can't name them all but I've always come out the other end, but now I have no idea what's up with me, i get an unexplainable feeling, that just stops me, the worst thing is I can be happy and get this, I can function normally sometimes and still have this irritating feeling looming inside my head, I feel stupid telling my girlfriend although she is supportive.

as soon as I wake up in the morning I'm aware of this feeling, but I can't control it, then I think it's nothing which makes me panic because the thought of it bieng just the way I am is so stressful.

I don't know if it's helplessness, doubt, hopelessness but all I look forward to at night is sleeping, switching off but I get the anxiety of waking back up.

Im not over apexagerating, I've never been the type, all I want to do I wake up and not think about how I'm feeling I just want to be normal again.

    Dave, how did you get over depersonalization?  I have that and just pretend that it's nothing. Yet, when I am not busy, I am very aware of the feeling of detachment, invisible,out of body, like I'm going to lose control, etc.  Is this how you are feeling now?

      What you need to do is try and accept it, I know it seems very hard to and you feel very alone, I was on citalopram as I was depressed at the time and that seems to help me, I also thought that trying to keep busy made me worse sometimes as I was aware that the reason I was doing a certain hobby was to try and forget it so it kinda had me checking all the times to see if the hobby was helping, I don't know of this makes sense. My best advice is to keep reminding yourself that you are normal and it will pass, some times life bites us in the bottom, accepting it is the best cure, if it's giving you panic attacks then I recommend a small dowse of diazapam, it doesn't make youn feel different but your mind relaxes, It's not needed but can help.
