In my humble and non-medical opinion, I'd say your doctor is 100% correct. They ARE back. It can be the nature of these disorders to go into a sort of remission, sometimes for years and we think we've beat it, then out of the blue, or what we perceive as "out of the blue," it returns. I think it comes back when there is undue stress in our lives or something tragic happens, but those are just my thoughts. I don't know if there is a medical explaination or not.
Apparently you've been through this before, so you know what to do. I trust your doctor started you on medication(s). Did you utilize therapy during your last episode? If not, you might give it some thought now. Meds can really help, but they just mask symptoms, it takes therapy to find the cause and lead to the cure.
Take care of yourself.
This too shall pass.
Peace

you need to stop dwelling on your symptoms.    I know thats difficult when you are in a crises but you must try to think positive----go for a brisk walk  and best of all  try to meditate.    Deep breathing and visulaization is also great for anxiety.  . We have to be grateful for the wonderful things in our lives

Hi, I'm sorry for what you are going thru...I can relate to all that you're describing.  I myself have anxiety and it's been over a year since I've had it, the first few months for me was really bad, I had no appetite to eat, was afraid to be alone, and like you said looked up symptoms and made you scared, I too had those feelings...especially thinking that I was gonna die, but I couldn't let that take over my thoughts even thou it was hard to control...I am married and have 2 children (7 and 3 years old), they are who I focus on, they are my strength.  I know it's hard to focus like you said, but I need to try and think about ur child, start praying, don't let anxiety beat you, I know you can do this...therapy is another key to feeling better, talking it out with someone face to face helps, at least with someone that understands why you're going thru.

Hope whatever I said helps you out a little...take care and god bless, always pray, I've become a prayer since my anxiety, it helps.

God bless,
Julz

Hey man, I've had feelings/episodes like the one you described. I don't feel that derealization feeling as badly as I once did but I do get slight moments in which I feel like I'm in a dream state or that someway I don't belong in the current setting. But when it first hit me months ago it was really bad. I would end up crying and hudled up in a ball. I wish I could do something to help you and everyone else on here out. But I don't have the magic cure. All I can do is give you my support and listen to you if you ever need to talk. Add me if you feel liking talking to someone that's your age and is going through something similar. I think we can be alot of help.
