your story sounds very much like mine. after i had my son i started feeling like i was in my own little weird world and i did not know how to explain it to anyone. i went to doc after doc and they said you have post partom, i kept saying no i dont i feel fake like iam in a video game or something. well anyways many years later i went to a therapist and he helped me greatly. he let me know that what i had is normal and many anxiety suffers have that side affect. it is called depersonalization, you can google it. basically its a side affect from anxiety that makes you feel like your in a dream like state. i still deal with it to this day. i also become agoraphobic from it for 6 months before i knew what i had, which means i kept myself in the house and would not leave for anything. i was normal one day and the next i couldnt go to work, i couldnt even drive, i felt like i was going to dye all the docs were lying to me and something was wrong. no matter what anyone told me i thought for sure something else was wrong and i was going to die, pass out, have a seizure, something. but guess what in the end i really was wrong. i educated myself on it, went to my therapist, ans talked my moms head off, (to tell you the truth i dont know how she dealt with me everyday, i would tell her the same thing....mom if i die i want you to know how i feel cause something is wrong) by the way iam 27 i still have anxiety and deal with it everyday, i can get myself so worked up over nothing, and i have really bad side effects from my attacks. but you know what. i get through them mostly with the help of talking to my mom and her telling my everything is ok its just anxiety. so really truly trust me i know you can do it. but i also know i will deal with this for the rest of my life....and thats ok, because i always remember no matter how high or bad the aniety get...remember its always will go down and away. i do take zoloft, and zanax for attacks. and you know what i never wanted to be on meds, but like my doc said....you can suffer or suck it up and take something to control it.
