Don't feel myself

Posted , 8 users are following.

Why don't I feel my self . I used to enjoy going out being the first on up when going on holiday buzzzing now a days I can't get out of bed don't want to do anything. I took my wife out for a meal and felt like I was on another planet not with it staring into space good job my wife understands . Anyway how can I get over this all my doc wants to do is fill me with med . Could it be (sad ) winter blues . It's really getting me down now feels like I'm getting to a point of no return . Oh the other thing I seem to be doing is concentrating on my breathing . Am I breathing right I keep asking my self .

    Hello Darry

    All your symptoms (listed) are those associared with anxiety, as others have posted on this site.

    Is there something worrying you/has something unpleasant happened recently?  Or maybe you have had a winter virus which has left you low.

    However, keep an eye on your symptoms.....but they all point to anxiety.

    Good Luck.

      Meds had no effect on me whatsoever. Exercise did,I also gave my computer away so I'd stop searching the net.This was 9 years ago tho,when my kids were babies. They would string me up if I turned the net off now.

    Sounds like dissociation that can occur when depression or anxiety get out of control, it is your minds way of trying to protect you from half but spacing you out and separating mind from body, some people have this for a long time and can't snap out of it. I would go and see a psychologist or doctor if it continues. Do a bit of research online and you will find more info on it. All the best

      I would go against the idea of googling anything. It often makes an anxious person worse. See a psychiatrist then they will recommend a psychologist. CBT has worked for me and ACT THERAPY. google those instead. smile

    Hi darryl.

    You need to make a list of your thoughts and then the feelings you get from those thoughts. You have listed a fear of dying this is an emotion. "Fear" just remember the thought is making you scared. It sounds like you have depersonalisation i myself have suffered from this. Its when our mind is fused on unrealistic thoughts that in turn make us anxious. Which then we can have the physical symptoms. My anxiety is caused by my repetitive negative thoughts. Eg "im going to die today" , "whats the point in buying stuff for myself im going to die soon"

    The trick is to be an observer on your thoughts and acknowledge that they are there. I always say "oh hey death thoughts.your making me feel anxious right now" . This may sound stupid but it has worked. I had anxiety so bad that i felt like i was a stranger in my own head.
