Can anyone relate? will i ever get better

Postby dylan1994 » Thu Jan 15, 2015 2:36 am

alright well this all started this year before going away to school for the first time. I was in the woods and had an interaction with derealization might of been due to marijuana i can't remember. Anyways I had what I thought was bad anxiety at school. I began to notice I wasn't sleeping as good waking up with sweats etc. I decided to do cocaine (i told myself i shouldn't) and had a horrible panic attack. anyways since then i dropped out of school and life for me has been very strange. I feel like no matter what I do my mind is only focused on myself. I am literally stuck in my head just thinking about what is wrong with me and having racing thought.. The world just feels like a foggy sort of place and I can't control my thoughts. I find it close to impossible to laugh now a days and just at times feel like I'm a completely different person. I just started taking Celexa about a week and a half ago and it fealt like it was helping at first but i'm not sure it is now. Will the world ever return to the place I once knew? I really need some relief or just some hop that things will get better.

derealization can be a common symptom of anxiety. if you google search the two you'll find many people experience the two together also. derealization can also make your surroundings look foggy or dream like.

as for racing thoughts, thats anxiety too. i know its hard to not try too, but when you try to control the thoughts your feeding the anxiety. try to observe and watch them while keeping a steady, deep breath. its not easy for anyone, so dont be hard on yourself if your finding it difficult. but its a good thing to practice.

have you tried therapy for your anxiety? like cbt or dbt, it can help.

i have smokked cannabis,and i felt like i lose my vision and my surroundings appear so unreal,the time distortion and feeling that the blackness inside the mind is tthe reality is aomewhat unexplainable,i dont use cocaine,i also had depreasion but my depressiin is connected with my unresolved trauma in my life ,i felt loneliness,helplesnnes,hopeless,i used drugs to relieve from symptoms,i live in a place where there is no good psycological care is available,in your case i think u live in america,i considered as the most forward country of psycology can get good treatment,and can comee to path of healing
