    HI Sergio...yes I am the same when it comes to normal things either looking weird..feeling weird ..or even sounding weird..I am aware of my breathing at times and  I worry that if I think about breathing I will either stop breathing or I will get worn out from breathing and then the more I think about it the worse it gets so I have to try and distract from it and tell myself that I wont just stop breathing..when my anxiety was at it worst I used to think that people faces look weird and not normal...like their eyes and noses and mouths were in the wrong places..but I found the more aware of these things you are the worse the anxiety..at one time I used to think i was a man..I just felt like an man and my voice even sounded weird...so much strange stuff can come out of anxiety and the mind is such a powerful thing its scary..hope this helps

      Im so sorry to hear that you are going through this..tell your psychiatrist eveyrthing even if you think its insignificant they wont judge you they will understand..the psychiatrist that I saw years ago was so nice and caring and understanding and helped me so much...just knowing  I wasnt going crazy was a huge resurrance for me...I needed and need constant reassurance but when I tell myself its anxiety it does help

    That is the reason why you need therapy to understand it and understand how to deal with it

    Your therapy appointment is coming up soon.

    Like I said before, if you need anything before then, post on here or send me a PM.

    You can beat this.

    You are not alone.

    Good luck and all the best!
