Anxiety DP/DR and more?

848 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Sojourner
Is this all just anxiety? I have fears that ill forget people, like my wife, like i will suddenly not know who she is. Or i fear that ill for get who i am.

I some times have fears that things i have done, like went to the store did not even happen "I know they did" but i have fear that I'm crazy and they did not.

I freak out about everything.

Just before i was sleeping and i opened my eyes to see my wife sitting on the bed just watching me sleep, i freaked out and now I'm having a panic attack that i'm going to forget things, or I'm in a dream and i cant wake up.

How much of these things are just anxiety and panic and am i, in reality going crazy with schizophrenia?

I feel like i have to second guess everything i do and say or type. I wonder if what i say is just insane ramblings..

I know this make so sense, but i just had to vent..

The symptoms you describe are very common, you can see on the "What is DP/R like for you" post, that many people say the same.

It may sounds strange, but i keep a "diary" in my mind, and keep saying to myself what i did, trying to keep myself focused on events happening during the day.

Same problem with the self ("forget who i am"), because my memories seems so far and distracted i keep recall events from my past and "connect" them again to me.

to me it's helps.
