Just the other day I was booked in for an assessment with the NHS and the doctor gave a diagnosis of Generalised anxiety disorder. Not exactly sure what that means.
What I'm struggling with at the moment is that I have these automatic thoughts of not knowing where i am or who I am and feeling lost like i don't recognise my own body anymore. I feel like I'm not taking anything in no matter what I do, I'm looking at something but not really seeing it my mind is elsewhere 24/7. These thoughts and feelings set off my panic so easy and it scares me so much feeling lost from my own body.
Has anybody experienced this and can anybody offer any advice? I've been playing football and when it distracts me, it comes back harder after cos it's like I've forgot everything and all of a sudden makes me panic. So hard to explain but hoping for a bit of advice. Been on a waiting list for therapy for so long now feel like I've got no one to turn too. How on earth did it get to this point?
Going to work and keeping busy does help admittedly but it's like doing my work and keeping myself frantically busy only masks the problem by putting it to the side briefly. It's like I have to be constantly moving 24/7 to avoid these problems.
Thanks for reading this
