      I think it really depends on what season in life you are but from me that's every season so I guess yes lol.

      I get the same way. Its like my brain is fighting with itself. Are you on anything to help?

      It does for me because I don’t know what to trust. My fears are irrational and so sometimes they are so beyond that they don’t even make sense to me which can be confusing. I also have other conditions that cause confusion that are worsened by anxiety so it’s a fun lil loop.

        @Soskae yes! Exactly. Its comforting to know others feel it too cause I get scared thinking it might be something serious

      Absolutely. Anxiety can make you feel completely lost.

      It makes it hard to think clearly. Then I get even more anxious because I can’t think lol. The cycle is too much 😣

        @NiqueMK exactly that don't worry I feel it too and even makes me more anxious

      I’ve definitely had the conversation with my therapist about how I’m supposed to tell if meds are causing confusion, because I feel confused most of the time. Really relate to the person who mentioned they get overwhelmed trying to process all the information in our environment. I know now that it’s just how my brain works because I’m autistic and ADHD, but that doesn’t always help make it feel any better to feel that way.

      What i do when that happens is write down what im feeling and talk to someone!! it’s better to let out what your feelings rather than keep it in bc it will eventually build up and be more intense. hope this helps!!

      I get really overwhelmed by everything like my brain is struggling to process my thoughts and the world around me, then I make mistakes and then more anxiety. Idk does anyone relate?

      • JJay

        @Makaria I get that I really do don't worry you're not alone

      I have noticed this when my anxiety is bad I start feeling confused for some reason. Part of it I think is because of the dissociation/depersonalization that I experience because of it. It’s a really scary feeling suddenly feeling confused as to what’s going on or where you are. I think maybe it’s something to do with a spike in cortisol or something?

        @layayaya it feels comforting to know that I'm not the only one that feels this

      • JJay

        740d

        @layayaya yea it's scary even more scary when you have to pretend like everything is fine around everybody

        • layayaya

          740d

          @JJay yes it is!! That is the hard part about anxiety is sometimes it’s really hard to hide from other people
