I am wondering if you could be experiencing an atypical Depersonalization disorder.
Hey Kitt, much thank you for the reply! I was wondering if that is what I had, but it seems that what I was describing wasn't on the list of common signs of depersoninalization. Now I just need to find ways of how to concur and get over it, as the effexor does not show signs of helping it. If anyone has had this and has methods of how to overcome it, any help would be so appreciated
I know we have had other members with depersonalization and hopefully they will be along shortly.
*Crosses fingers* haha. I did some searching and ran into Panic-Anxiety.com, and was curious if anyone has tryed the "Linden Method" good or bad, wanted to see if anyone had an oppinion on it. Thanks!

Well.....I was going to post a reply Wednesday morning when.......I was on the phone with my mother about to meet up with her for lunch, and as she described to the parimedics and firefighters I went silent on the phone and became not responsive to her on the phone. The firemen got into the house via the kitchen window and I was found sitting on the couch watching ESPN in a shirt and briefs....Oops. Lexapro just did this to me a few months ago and Effexor was said to not have the same side effects, well not true. I brought up my dream state of minds to the neurologist today when going over all my tests and everything looks perfectly normal. Thank you Lord :). I just want to thank everyone again for your time to reply, as it gives me a positive feeling to know that I am not the only one out here like this, and having these feelings. It truely does scare you when you first have them as many do not understand the feeling or how they leave you unless you have them.
You are so welcome and please know we are always here to support and to listen. I am sorry you had such a scare but I am glad that you were talking to your Mother and she knew to call 911 for you.
Keep talking to us if it helps you.
