hyper aware of my own conciousness

Posted , 7 users are following.

Has anyone experienced this? It's like i get anxiety from being alive. My surroundings are strange and almost unreal. Sometimes I question if things are real. I know they are but then I start thinking really deeply about life and the universe and just weird stuff. When I wake up I feel a huge rush if panic. It's like im scared of living. I'm scared of dying too though. I find life really strange and everything we do is just strange kind of. I've read about derealization and stuff like that. This time it feels different then that. Almost like im new to living. Or an alien almost. I've become too aware of my own self and the world that it's actually uncomfortable it's like being high on a drug but I don't do drugs at all. Has anyone felt this. It happens everyday and the anxiety is almost constant. I feel insane. Like no one should think this deeply about life and existence. I've spoke to professionals and they say it's anxiety and ocd but it feels weird. I wish I could just not over think everything and be dumb.

    I am the same life can be scary at times and I think worrying about death is common with anxiety well I have had the same thoughts so you are not alone that's for sure try keeping active exercise regularly 30 mins a day at least go for walks in the countryside. it's good you are speaking out because it's not good to keep things bottled in . When these thoughts pop into your head think positive thoughts somwere you want to go people you want to see put the tv on and watch a comedy film to uplift your mood listen to uplifting music bob marley evry thing is going to be alright is a suggestion I no its not easily done but you have a life to live and I'm sure u have friends and family who care about you reach out to them tell them your worries if you feel you can't do that I'm here if you want to chat about anything.if you can't do all the above in one go do it in small steps you should consider going to the doctors there is medication that can help you get on with your life it's not nice battling anxiety but you have already made your first step to recovery by reaching out and expressing your thoughts don't let anxiety take control of you you have so much to live for hope this helps you in some way shaun

      These thoughts make me feel like im going crazy. Then I vet strange thoughts like what if all this wasn't actually real and freak myself out. I know it sounds childish but it makes me really anxious. My mind just always races. I look at everything and it's just so strange to me at times. Like literally anything I look at will just be weird. It's hard to explain

    I no where you are coming from you should see a doctor maybe ask a family member to go with you explain evry thing and be honest I can tell you that you are real the things around you are real It's not nice having these thoughts I no but you should seek help because you deserve a happy life you owe yourself that when these thoughts pop into your head think about the things you would like to do or be and take small steps to achieve that you can over come this Alison but you have to get the strength that we all have inside us even when we feel weak it is still there remember your a beautiful human being and people care I care and hope you overcome this as soon as possible and become a stronger person for it

      Thank you so much. Reading that made me feel better. Anxiety csn do amazing things to us. I know everyone is real but the feelings of derealization get so intense it feels like they arent. Then my ocd wants to question everything. It's a mess. I feel like it's something time will heal. Doctors only say to take my meds. I'm not into meds. I've been through something similar to this before years ago. I got over it. I just hope I can do the same this time

      Thank you so much. I just feel like im going crazy or that I already am. I've always had severe anxiety and it's always from deep thinking or for no reason at all. I'm glad I'm not a lone. I've read others who have experienced the same thing also.

    You know in some cultures you would be considered extraordinary with that. I know that sounds awful because your so uncomfortable but if trained properly you could easily self calm yourself. It has to be geared properly and with positivity.

      You should go on utube and go to healing meditations. Try a few.heightened awareness is a goid thing during these meditatiins. Try. There are oeople who use theta waves to get heightened sensitivty but you have it so train it.

      I feel like it might make it worse. I think it's just something I need to deal with. I just find life so strange. I've always had bad anxiety and the drs say that I have ocd that's why I'm always having racing thoughts about this kind of stuff. I know everyone thinks about it but it causes anxiety
