Get moments where everything feels weird

Posted , 5 users are following.

I keep having moments where everything around me feels weird like I look at my mum and I'm just like wow and just feel confused.. It's like a part of me reminds myself of all the anxiety I was feeling when I notice I'm starting to feel a little bit normal and now I feel like I'm burning up and like I'm going to fair or something and I'm scared sad

    Aw huni... Sit down or lay down whatever is more comfortable for you and do some controlled deep breathing... I like breath in through your nose to the count of 4 and out to the count of 8, or whatever is comfortable.... As you get calmer you might find you can breathe in and out for slightly longer counts but it will help you not to panic

    hi tanya, i have moments like this too, its a horrible feeling and very hard to explain to others. From reading stuff online i believe it to be something like Depersonilisation, i am 39 years old.

    I also get this a lot where my surroundings seem strange. I feel spaced out daily its worse when im in bright lighted places like shops or when im at home i think to myself i feel weird like im detached from myself. I find sitting in a darker room helps ie when i sit in a room with a dimmed lamp or im watching tv with the light out. I hate the spaced out feeling because i cant seem to make it go. If you need to talk then feel free to keep messaging :-) x

      hiya, yes i am very familiar with all this, it can affect all ages i am 39, although its hard to do sometimes make sure you keep really busy and mix with others as much as poss, i find very simple, grounding things help ie cuddles, spending time with a pet or loved ones, going for a walk in the rain,a walk on a beach. I also find exercise very effective

      Hi Marie so has your spacey feelings subsided now? I ask because mines been bad for a year now but then i know my circumstances haven't changed so i know thats probably why ie still a stay at home parent, hardly go out and socialise and indoors a lot so that may be why i feel so detached. I have read about keeping occupied, is this what has helped you? x

      Don't feel like you are loosing your mind! You are not! This is anxiety, are you taking meds as you are really young to be having anxiety? To be honest though i was 15 when i had first panic attacks x

    A very scary, but common, anxiety symptom called de realization. Try not to let it bother you and it will go away sad

      Hi, yeah I've had it before and over the past 2 weeks it's been like fading like I try keeping myself occupied and obviously get the occasional thought about it but I think about it for a moment and then let it slip but I've had a stressful day today, felt really lonely due to some friend issues that are pretty pathetic and also speaking to my councilor in school has reengaged some feelings so I think it's made me think about them abit more

      I get a feeling where I feel like I know myself but I don't it's pretty horrifying

      also I can sit and look at my family and be like wow this is weird just stuff like that? HORRIBLE symptom I hate it
