I'm an 18 year old female, I could be wrong but I feel as if my life is going okay, the only down falls has been that my grandmother passed in January and my dad has been in prison for about 2 years now, but I've been handling it fine, I think..as of 3 months ago something strange happened to me. Something out of nowhere. Its like I blinked and I was someone else and somewhere else. I felt extremely dizzy, my face got really hot and my whole body felt super weird. Like I wasn't controlling my own body. I felt like I was in a dream, and like reality wasn't real, and ever since that day I've felt like that every single day for 3 months. Sometimes I'm able to handle it and some days it just takes me over. And I'm anxious every day. I think the worst. Does this mean I'm going crazy? If not how do I deal with this?
In my experience with anxiety, it initially seemed to come from nowhere and it can be both scary and confusing at first. First of all, you are definitely NOT going crazy. You have experienced some fairly stressful events recently which can be very stressful.
Have you talked to your doctor or parents about this? For me, the best advice I could give is just to speak about it with a counselor...just sitting down and talking and learning about it can really help you understand it, in my opinion. As with any challenge, the more we know about it and how to confront it, the less daunting it becomes. Keep us posted!
hey, i have been going threw that to , i was sitting at a ball park taking score and all of a sudden for no reason i felt a little off, not like real dizzy but lightheaded sorta, than it happen again and again. it threw me into anxiety for 6 weeks i have been fighting it, some days i go to walk across floor and i feel unsteady. but not room spinning dizzy, i felt foggy headed for over two weeks than that went away. its not a good feeling to not be yourself, life is no fun, nothing to get excited about, i lost weight because i was to stressed to eat. i feel lots better now but every now and than i can feel the off balance feeling , just not myself. so yes your not going crazy its anxiety hang in there and you need keep doing your reg stuff, i never stoped i keep going if you don't it can stay with you forever .
Well thank you for your opinions and advice..its really been freaking me out. And I don't wanna have to go on meds I wanna learn to cope with it on my own its just very hard..the not feeling real and feeling like I'm in a dream thing is what gets me going.
