      Often, and I struggle with not remembering what I look like, even if I have only just turned away from my mirror, or struggling to believe that my voice is mine. Unfortunately i don’t have much advice that nobody else has offered yet, but I wanted to remind you that you’re not alone and show my support (:

      Yea that’s how I’ve been ! I have klonopan but it doesn’t help it makes me feel weird and if I take it during the day I get sleepy and anxious. Xanax kinda does the same but I aM prescribed 1/2 of .5 but go back to the dr next week

      I completely understand and was at that point for awhile. I think being on a benzo on a regular basis would help get you back to a state where you can do things without constantly worrying. It’s okay to have to take medication like that— I went from someone who was very independent to my panic disorder ruling my life and barely being able to leave the house until I went on Klonopin

      I also get this feeling. Honestly going to therapy once a week (which I realize is not always accessible) and having supportive people around me to talk through those feelings is very helpful. For me personally, saying the feelings out loud and talking about it with someone helps get it out of my head and feels less overwhelming in my body. The less I fight the feeling and the more I just feel the feeling, the faster it goes away. Feels terrible in the mean time, can’t deny that. So sorry you have to experience it.

      Abosultely! It actually has a name. It's called derealization and depersonalization. I found that once I knew the name for it I was able to identify it and work on grounding myself back in my body. Hope this helps

      I can’t help but give in I’m so weak when it comes to it. They keep me from doing literally anything and everything it’s so bad. I honestly don’t know what to do anymore

      Also when my anxiety was really bad I would make a list of every single thing I needed to do that day even from brushing my teeth to eating and would cross it off when I was done and that helped me from cycling into my thoughts and it was so hard to not just give in to my thoughts but this helped me the slightest bit too

      This happens to me a lot when I have panic attacks and panic symptoms. One thing that minorly helps me is to look in the mirror and look at myself and see that nothing is physically wrong with me and that the world is “okay” essentially even tho it doesn’t feel that way. It doesn’t help a lot but it helps a little which is better than nothing

      That's a general feeling of anxiety. The existential dread. It's crippling.And you don't feel like yoursf because you aren't yourself. You're a shell of who you could be if it weren't for this disease. I think we all struggle with it. Especially feeling like we aren't in our own bodies and it feels like some weird heavy shell and the only thing you can really feel is when your heart starts to race. Don't have any real advice here but you aren't alone.

      Yes alllll the time. What brings you peace? Sometimes when I listen to music or read (my peace bringing things) it helps bring me out of that headspace❤️❤️
