Feelings of detachment/anxiety/depression.

Postby RizzutoHD » Fri Jun 07, 2019 1:29 am

Around a month ago I began to feel like my brain was gradually drifting off from reality, this permanently leaves me in a dream-like state where I feel like I'm on autopilot.

Immediately after waking up in the morning I feel extremely worried and upset. Usually about work or school. This feeling could persist for hours after waking up without a break.

I get waves of dark/sad/worrying throughout the day, this worsens in public. I sometimes have to reassure myself there is nothing to worry about.

It seems I'm always able to eat more; I tend to eat not because I'm hungry but because the taste is usually pleasurable and gives me something to enjoy, I have been trying to cut back recently.

I sometimes reflect on embarrassing/unfortunate events in my past life and think of everything I could have done differently to avoid it, leaving me lost in my own anxious thoughts.

Ever since a few years ago I feel increasingly self-conscious, mostly about my appearance and personality. This sometimes makes it difficult for me to speak up in conversations in fear of being insulted or rejected.

Whenever I am insulted/given negative news I feel like It effects me more emotionally than it should. It bothers me usually for a while after.

I react positively to good news/exciting upcoming events.

I can't concentrate on one thing for more than a minute, this is severely impacting my grades.

I sleep for around 6 hours or so before I wake up feeling restless, this has been happening regularly for the last week.

I know there was a time when I didn't always feel this way, but I can't' remember it.

The thought of being like this permanently makes me feel sad.

Have you gone to a doctor or therapist about this? I really think you ought to, even if it's just a school counselor. If at all possible.

No, I haven't, what do you think it could be?

Well I can't say for sure, but I think there's something going on- anxiety and depression, for starters. Possibly other things. If it's negatively affecting your quality of life, then you ought to consider seeing a professional.
