      Hi Anty..I get those horrible feelings too like im not here anymore even though i can still do things I feel like my mind goes away and comes back over and over ..its really scary ..I feel like my mind is going to just go away one day and not come back..I have this feeling all day every day now and its really scary..my mind feels numb and the outside world feels so far away and not real anymore..I feel like I am in another dimension..hate it so much.

      Haha i think my post got sent of for review cause I said a very minor swear word. I have a headache i think headaches make the depersonalization worse, I get the eye pressure and dry eyes to it may be from over breathing? Not sure, are you in the us

      It is the worst feeling ever..I just want to hit my head with a hammer to try and bring back the clarity and real feeling again..the more I try to bring back normal feelings the worse it gets..I hope we are all better very soon and start feeling normal again..

      Hi Alllison..I know what you mean about these feelings being hard to explain..I just cant put them into proper words..there are no words to describe these feelings..I think I am going to disappear into my mind and go to another dimension...maybe I am on the verge of a breakdown sad

      The last time I had these feelings was 25 years ago after the birth of my son..I thought I was going crazy until i read a book by Clarie Weekes and she descirbed exaclty what I was feeling then i went to see a psychiatrist and he reassured me I wasnt going crazy..he helped me so much and I did recover from these horrible feelings but I never felt 100% normal but my mind did clear so I know its possible to  recover i am l iving proof..I just never thought I would ever feel this way again and then a few days ago i felt weird and then bam the dreaded feeling came back again..I know i have been under alot of stress in the last year and i am sleep deprived so that doesnt help as im so tired all the time..I think it may be time to see someone again

      Thats would be the hardest part for you cause you got rid of it for such a long time and to get it again would be a nightmare im a bit similar i did get rid of the feelings for a month then it come back have no idea why its not like I have been more stressed then usual now im stuck again and in my head i keep thinking if it does go will it keep coming back. It feels like im contently on drugs of some sort im just not with it. The fading away feeling is the worst my mind as I write this feels like its fading

      Yes back then I never though I would feel normal again but I did..my head eventually cleared but it feels alot worse this time around and I am scared that is more than just anxiety this time..and I am feeling the same as you are..that if it goes away then it may come back again...I know how you feel about the mind fading away..i sit here in front of the computer and I dont even feel like im here..feels like my mind is somewhere else and i have to jolt myself back to reality..that is the worst feeling ever

      I think i might have to go and have a brain scan this time cause i am more worreid this time..problem is the more i worry the worse i feel..its funny to think that when im feeling normal i would nevedr be looking outside to see if the weird feelings are still there..anxiety heightens eferything..we have a heightened repsonse to anxiety and i hate it...may i ask how old you are allison..I am 49

      H Antsy..after I read books and realised I wasnt going crazy and then I talked to a psychiatrist who was the best most caring and understanding man ever..I started getting better cause my mind realised that I was suffering anxiety and a nervous disorder (yes this can be just as bad)..it wasnt an overnight fix but I slowly recovered and my mind eventually cleared but I have to say I never really felt 100% normal but soooo much more normal than what I was feeling..some of the weird feelings would creep back in from time to time but they were short lived thank goodness..but now they have come back with a vengeance and I think its because of the stress i have endured over the last 8 years but especially the last 12 months ...just remember that you are not  going crazy or losing your mind even though it feels like it...best thing you can do is try not to force feeling normal ...it will, only keep you in that heightened anxiety place..I know its hard..I look for the feelings all the time to see if they are still there and that is just as bad if you know what i mean..you will recover I know you will..I did and I know I will again...I read a great article online and it helped heaps...hope I helped just now...
