    Hey Mark, you're real and so is anxiety. It's gotta be the worst thing for strange symptoms. I've had that, I've looked in the mirror and wondered who I was. From what I've read it's depersonalization and its caused by the body being in a constant state of fight or flight, only the adrenaline is not being used up with physical activity, so it manifests in these crazy symptoms. It's driving me crazy too. Hang in there bro everything changes.

      I'm struggling Brian I'm on to crisis lines constantly. I'm losing myself Brian I have moments where I'm completely lost then I return but it's getting less common now. The blurred vision is getting worse and so is my confusion I'm practically bed bound. Hope things improve for all on here.

      Hi Mark, it is a struggle and it gets so tiring. I wish I had the answer, I get really scared much of the time too. Have you gotten anything from the doctor to calm you? Maybe something to give you a break from the thoughts.

      hang in there, sending prayers

      Also Mark you may want to try diverting your thoughts to something else, I know it's difficult when feeling like this but I've found that if I can distract myself with a movie, book, music or guided meditation sometimes that will get me out of the scary thoughts for a bit. Not a fix but at least a break.

      hang in there bro.

      Mark, you'll get through this buddy. You have good days and bad days but you'll get through this and the bad days will become less. Get counselling and medication and keep moving forward. Take care bro.

    Anxiety is horrible to deal with, and it is tied in also with depression.  Think of going to a good therapist and talk out all your feelings to them.  They might be able to steer your anxious thoughts into positive ones after listening.  

    You are very real in the regard that you can state how feel and what's it's doing to you.  I hope you can get some help.
