Hi my name is Sarah and I'm 30 I've struggled with panic attacks and hypochondriac since I was 18 . At the end of last year I started to get really obsessed about thinking I was going schizophrenic I started to have very bad panic attacks worst in my life I was nearly placed into a mental hospital but luckily I didn't have to go . These panic attacks went for roughly a few weeks they made me feel crazy after the panic attacks stopped I woke up one day and every thing was not right I felt odd and not me anymore like there's something in the way of who I am I can't feel me anymore I kinda remember who I once was before this happened but can't get myself back I feel like I'm living in my head I'm so scared I don't understand why I feel like this am I going insane it's July now and I have felt like this since end of last year why is this not going away I don't have bad panic attacks anymore. . Does anyone know what this feeling is because I feel trapped inside my mind I just won't to feel me again I'm scared , confused and alone no one understands Any help would be so much appreciated thank you ??

    Sarah, first you need to find out what it is. The easiest way, and probably the least expensive and quickest, is to find an anxiety therapist or counselor, the focus on making sure their field is anxiety. They will be able to confirm or rule out anxiety. Then you can go from there. This really feels important to do right away, to ease your mind and the panic as soon as possible. Let us know what you find out. DO THAT!  You will be okay, Honey.wink

    Sarah, you need a diagnosis before anything else can be done, so please go and see your doctor.

    I'm sorry you're going through this - it sounds awful. I think that once you have a diagnosis, your doctor will probably prescribe some medication to calm you and treat whatever is wrong.

    Don't panic that you have a life-long mental health problem - this could just as easily be something that willl respond to medication plus therapy.

    Please post on the site again so that we can support you.   love Tess

    Hi Sarah,

    The feeling of not being yourself is normal eith anxiety. Your brain at this moment is very sensitive and aware and so therefore you would feel sensitive to noise reactions taste etc. All this has a domino effect.

    Have you anyone in your life that you can talk to? I.e. family freinds partner etc
