Question Blank Periods - June 7th 2014, 09:35 AM

Sometimes I just go through these periods (I call them 'blank periods' in my head) that last anywhere from a few hours to a few days where everything feels... off. like the world is out of balance and nothing I do feels quit right. it feels sort of like there's just this constant tension in my head, like the pressure before you sneeze and I feel like I need to do something to alleviate it but I can't, and it's very off-putting. I would like to know if anyone else feels like this sometimes? and what I can do about it?

Well, I wouldn't describe it like you did but I soemtimes feel like I have snot instead of brains as i call it and I think it's the same. I feel like the world is running and I can't go faster than walking and don't get the destination. Nothing really gets to me and when it does it takes a lot of time to process. I feel strangely numb and light headed but in a bad, sad and frustated kinda way.

I feel like that when I'm "overstimulated". Or when I have a lot on my mind. If I feel that way I sometimes take a few steps back and try to process everything going on in my life and write down the stuff I need to do and what's important and than I read a little. Sometimes it works but sometimes it doesn't and then I just sit down and stare out a window or at a single surface for a long time with my headphones in so I don't have people talking to me and I don't see anyone.

You might want to get it checked out or schedule a scan. Just to be safe.
Might be something physiological.

Hi There,

I believe I understand what you are explaining but I am not sure I can relate exactly.
For myself, a blank period is when I'm just not with it I guess, like I'm not really focused on anything and I'm just going through things because I have to go through them and I cannot see the positive reason for anything (basically everything is a mundain process that I dread) and I am doing everything as if in a blur. I do not experience the physical symptoms (the pressure) you describe that is in your head).
This is something you should definitely talk to your doctor about. There could be many causes for this that are both physiological and/or psychological.
I hope this helps in some way and that things have improved before now or improve in the future.
Take care and you can message me if you would like to talk.

"i don't care your intentions. I just want you to know my self-hatred never took me where I wanted to go. At the end of the day...I can pick at the pain but I can't cut it away."
