Empty (Please give advice)

Hi everybody,

Hope you are having a fantastic weekend so far. I just wanted to let you know my struggles lately. It hasn't been fun.

Basically, I have to constantly be on the phone or on the computer as a distraction because if I am alone with my thoughts I go crazy. Lately I have been feeling like my brain is empty. Like there is no person in that brain, or someone has replaced me. I can't even go to the bathroom without my phone because when I am sitting there alone in the bathroom, I go in & out of my personality & reality. I panic, I freak out, and rush back to my computer to get my mind off the DP.

I was wondering if anyone else has this problem, and do you have any advice? How can I move away from the distractions? I need to do this slowly but surely in the best way possible.

Most of my "anxiety" feels have decreased & I can go out & talk to people normally. But I just always need a distraction. Help please :( I really hate this empty brain feeling.

If distraction is helping you for now then I'd just carry on until you're at a point where you feel you don't need to distract yourself as much. You are coping with this and you will get better, it will just take time.
