Hi, I’m curious if anyone has thoughts on what this could be. Sometimes randomly, I just start feeling like really weird like everything is off, and weird. And it feels really bad. I don’t know how to explain it. It usually goes away after a few minutes, but it’s the worst. I was thinking it might be like depersonalization/derealization, but I don’t really experience what I’ve heard from other people like feeling not real or like I’m not myself. I just start feeling super weird/off/uncomfortable and if I start thinking of like what could I do to feel better, nothing sounds good. I just have to wait for it to go away. Open to any thoughts, thanks!
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Does it seem like things in your environment feel off and that make you feel bad or something internally feels off and that is what makes you feel bad?
I think like internally. The environment doesn’t change but I just feel very off anyway out of the blue
I experience this too. It’s like someone randomly decided to flip a switch and everything feels wrong. I’ve always thought this was a part of my general anxiety disorder. Maybe that could be the cause for you?
that’s exactly what my disassociation feels like! everything just feels really weird and wrong and icky like a nightmare.
i usually just try to do ANYTHING to distract myself (splashing my face w cold water, washing dishes, going on tiktok…) and then within a few minutes it goes away. sometimes i have to try a couple different things before something works.
When it happens to me I look around me and it feels like everything around is not real. I've been living with this for 2 years! But I've learned to live with it by coping and relaxing.
For me, this feeling is a part of my panic disorder and it's considered mild dissociation. A distraction like music, social media, drawing, etc. tends to help in my experience
Yep that's dissociation. When it happens I put both my feet flat on the floor and I sit up straight and take some deep breaths. Anything to remind myself that I am here and I am okay and I am safe.
sounds like dissociation! I would talk to a professional about it to get some help in caring for it properly but we promise it's not the end of the world and there's many ways to help ground yourself! feel free to chat with us about it if you'd like
Does it make you think that something bad is gonna happen even if you don’t know what it is
not that something bad will happen, I think it’s more internal thing I guess. Where everything just starts feeling super off
I dont understand disassociation.
I only recently heard the term.
I know I have PTSD CPTSD, OCD, OCPD
But sometimes there is this thing where I 'slide' into a flashback and I am watching a video on an invisable screen infront of me. The image is a hologram. I am seeing a past even play out over again.
It can be almost like the hologram is an overlay to reality that i am also seeing too.
Is that disosociation?
this sounds like a hallucination/flashback to me love. PTSD episodes can be REALLY intense
Thank you everyone, I really appreciate it it. It’s so nice to have people know what you’re talking about❤️
I was thinking the slide i experience just before the PTSD vision is disasociation.
If not, what is that slide called?
Also, when i am having paralyzing cant emotionally get past my anxiety to do anything for me, but someone else calls i can push down and get up and go. What is that?
