Yep, something is going on ...
Scared to be alone?  Nervous?  Feel like you are in a dream, or a movie?  Yep ... you need to get checked out.
Hope you will call your medical doctor, or mental health professional, for an appointment.   Write us back and give us a little of your history, that would help a lot.
:-)
 
ps:  I see you've been around the HW forum quite a bit - maybe others who know you better than I do will come along soon with better responses to your query.

Hey jaymay, I'm not to sure what your going though?...but, I often am nervous and feel like I am in a dream state.  However, I have anxiety/panic attacks which explains that feeling I have.  I agree with wmnak that you should get checked out if your feeling this way.  As for the wanting to be around people and scared to be alone, I hardly ever feel this way...I usually want to be alone and on my own.  But depression is differant in everyone...

My anxiety/panic disorder makes me feel nervous sometimes. I have lived alone for 13 years (I'm female) and am not afraid to. In fact, I think I am more afraid of trying to live with someone than I am of living alone. Except for money being tight I am very happy alone (I have two cats who keep me company). I agree that you should talk to your doctor if you are having those feelings though.

Are you seeing a psychologist?  There are many personality disorders that go along with GAD.  It sounds like you could have "Avoidant Personality Disorder."  People with APD want relationships but are afraid of them.  Usually they need guarantees of being liked and are very sensitive to rejection.  Does this sound like you?  Talk to a trained psychologist about this.

P.S.  The reason I suggest this is because my ex-husband had social anxiety disorder or GAD and told me when we first dating "this feels like a dream."  I was flattered not knowing what I was dealing with.  He also told me that until recently he had not ever wanted to be alone.  He went home to his Mom which is familiar to him.  He was extremely idealistic and nervous.  Anyway, it you don't have to put a label on it.  You can just admit and work through your uncomfortable feelings with your therapist.  It would be best to get checked of course in case it is something more serious like something organic.
