So, ever since I can remember I have struggled with a feeling of being "out of it" and disoriented. Growing up my friends called me a "space cadet."However lately it has gotten to the point where it affects my quality of life and makes me hate being in public. It bothers me the most at work. Often I can be sitting at my desk and for a split moment I will forget where I am or lose track of my surroundings. Or I can be talking to someone and suddenly forget what I was saying or what the right words are. Like my brain has suddenly turned off. It is really awkward. I often end up staring at a spot without blinking, just completely spaced out. When someone talks to me it takes a lot of effort to focus on what they are saying. This sense of disorientation can come suddenly, like the other day I did a face plant leaving work because I "blacked out" and missed the step outside the door. Like for a moment I forgot where I was. It's hard to sum up all of my symptoms as they have become so integrated in my daily life. If a had to sum them up with a word though it would be "dissociation." Could this be anxiety? I have never had a panic attack and I've never suffered any sort of trauma or abuse. Can a person have anxiety without realizing it? Please help! I feel like I'm going crazy.
