I don't know when exactly is started.. but for the past I would have to say 5 months, I just don't feel like I've ever felt before.

I am 20 years old, with a hiatal hernia, and a nice case of anxiety/panic attacks. But thats not my main concern.

Some times I get this feeling where i'm just moving really slow, don't want to talk, and feel like I don't exist. I feel like i'm not even in my body, and it is very scarey.

I almost feel dumb sometimes, like I can't figure out what's going on.

Sometimes I wake up in the morning look around my room, and I have to realize that all the stuff in my room is mine, like ive never seen it before.

I'm quite sure there is something wrong with my brain, my doctor said its bad anxiety but that doesn't make sense to me, and I have been on several anxiety medicenes for weeks now with no change.

It's almost impossible to even explain how I feel when this happens, I don't feel real, I can't take in everything around me, I feel slow, can't talk, and feel like I could just fall asleep.

I'm desperate for answers and with all the money I have spent on doctors and hospital visits, noone can give me the right ones.

  • You're very young (I'm not having a dig just being honest) to be coping with all these feelings. Some of the things you said made me feel as if you're retreating into yourself a little - bottling things up. Do you think you could be depressed or have some mild psychiatric disorder? Have you anyone you could talk to about your problems a family member? friends? It's true sometimes a problem shared is just that. I think you really need to open up to someone, really talk to them about your feelings and be prepared to listen to any good advice - good luck:)
