Hello Everyone,

I guess I just want to write this because I don't want to feel alone. I am so scared of time passing too quickly that I often cover up all of the clocks in my house or avoid looking at them all together. I feel like the seconds and hours are passing abnormally fast which is troublesome for me because I love to watch and play hockey and as many know there is always a clock present. I know most people would perceive my belief as crazy but it is what I experience and it's very disturbing to me. I don't have a real question here but, I am just looking for support and maybe want to know if there is anyone that has this problem as well.

Thanks,

Zach

I have something similar altough is thr contrary i perceive time much slower sometimes like a morning feeling like an entire day and the rest of the day feels like ANOTHER day but in my case is relsted to the stress of job i wake up very early in the morning and the day feels very long anxiety plays a big role in this in my case

Hi zach, I have a lot of time based anxieties because of DP. its very very disturbing to me. The whole concept of time my mind just cannot wrap itself around. Its been at the forefront of my thoughts for a year. I cannot sense time anymore, i feel like i'm alone on an island. At some point though, things always get better. This is just anxiety stuff

look it at the bright side . for me when my anxiety is at its worst and I have panic then it feels as if time doesnt pass at all . time passes fast when you enjoy stuff

also trh to not think in time but in moments

I actually read about time passing faster (the illusion of it) and it seems to be related to what we're doing right now (ie smartphone, constant electronic stimulation). I've had anxiety for over 22 years but the last 10 have past me by without noticing. I do not think it's an anxiety problem per say.

I’ve been feeling the same way... since my sleeping schedule is messed up, I’m awake at night and sleep in the day, which makes me think time is passing way too fast. but I have really bad pure o, so I tend to overthink little things like that so it makes me uncomfortable as well. I would say don’t overthink it, but it’s easier said than done. hang in there, it will pass.
