Not again, please not again :| - February 9th 2010, 09:29 PM

I can't deal with this >____< I find this really really hard to explain which is why I've never talked to a doctor about it before, if I can't explain it how will a doctor understand? Every now and then (every few months) I just feel really strange, everything feels quite surreal. It feels like I'm living my life through another person's eyes almost. Another thing is some days where I get this It'll feel different to other days where I've had it. What I'm feeling like right now is different to what I felt like the last time I had it (about 6 months ago) It just feels like everything's different and how I normally feel in day-to-day situations feels different. Right now it almost feels like I'm disconnected from everything. My perception feels kind of messed up. Gah >_____< I find it so hard to explain, so sorry if post is confusing. It normally goes away in a few days (sometimes after I go to sleep I'll feel a lot better) Idk :/

Just say exactly that to your doctor. When you go see a doctor (especially for mental health reasons) they don't expect you to be able to explain everything perfectly. They don't expect you to be able to put your experiences into words. This is why your doctor will ask you questions.
Just the fact that you feel like something is wrong is all the explanation you need when you go see a doctor.

What's your mental state during the phase, calm and phased out or scared and anxious? Do you use any substances like alcohol, prescription drugs or "other"?

Normally really freaked out and anxious, but after a while I get a little used to it and feel a bit spaced out. I find it hard to stop thinking about it though as I want the feelings to go away.

I rarely drink alcohol and when I do it has never triggered these feelings. I've smoked weed a few times in the past but it has never triggered it either. I remember drinking 4-5 cans of red bull to try and keep myself awake and had it really bad once though :/ now I'm thinking about it that's the first time I've felt that way.

Edit:// Okay, I feel completely better now, thank Christ for that. I'm just worried it'll come back again >.> It all started yesterday in college, I was doing this business day thing. Everything started feeling strange in that classroom and I just really wanted to get out of there. My friend Amy helped me get out early because she thought I was just bored stiff. Once I got outside the fresh air made me feel great, I just got worse once I got home.

Do you have a regular sleep schedule or is it a random type of thing? (I'm in university myself and my sleep schedule can get erratic sometimes)

From your red bull story I'm guessing no. Two things, don't drink that many chemical drinks at once, there is a reason that there's a posted limit on the can. Even the manufacturer says "Ahh don't drink this shit too often."
Try this: Drink water, and tea if you need a pick-me-up, for the next week, so no coffees or energy drinks or colas, and avoid highly processed foods. Also try a normal sleep schedule, 10-6/7 sorta thing. This should flush out your system and restore your body chemistry. If the symptoms persist, then we've eliminated a few variables. Avoid taking any pills for the time being.

Were there any perticular thoughts or feelings you had about anything during the class when it happened? Were you just focusing on the lecture or were you thinking of something else?

I just really wanted to get out of there. Nothing seemed right at all. I think a little bit sick too. My mind wasn't on the lecture at all, all I was thinking of was getting out of there.

I normally get to sleep at about 1:30am and wake up at 7:30am (on college days) or about 11:00am on weekends. I probably should sleep more on weekdays but most people my age sleep that amount and they're fine.

Re: Not again, please not again :| - February 12th 2010, 05:01 AM

When did the feeling start? Before lecture, as soon as it began, a little ways in? Any particular thought patterns leading up to it? Any prevalent issues in your life at all that may have caused a strong psychological reaction? (stress, relationship conflicts, self-image, that kind of stuff is all fair game). Btw how long does this usually last?

It's a good a idea to try to be in bed by 12, if not 11. It's healthier and more productive to wake up earlier than go to bed late.

About an hour after the lecture started. If I'm left alone with my own thoughts that's normally when it starts :/ I was kind of anxious because we were meant to be doing a presentation once we finished, I hate speaking in public >.> They normally last from 3 hours to all day.

Well at this point anxiety could be a cause. I myself get pretty nervous before presentations because I stutter sometimes, even worse if I have to wait for my turn because then it's like an impeding doom. Unless you had very similar feelings with no anxiety involved you could probably write it off as a cause. Not that that solves the problem but it's a good start.

I'd write more but I'm on my iPod right now and typing is kinda irritating
