I just don't understand how things are going to go back to normal after this. I don't know how things are going to look and feel real again. I know I recovered before and didn't even remember how this hell felt but I feel like this time I'm sooooo far deep in this hell since it came with way more symptoms. I'm so traumatized by this!!!!!!!!!

I feel the same way! I've had this before (and sporadically through the past 7 years) but I didn't feel like it was THIS bad before. The symptoms seem far worse this time.

Yeah. This really sucks. I don't even know what else to do to snap out of this hell

Im holding firm to the thinking that once my anxiety isn't lowered and I'm back to being content, happy and relaxed, the existential feelings and the floating eyes feeling will subside. I overcame it before as well, and I remember paying little attention to the thoughts that terrify me now. I think you'll eventually get unsensitized to it and it won't be so bad.
How are your meds going? Any side effects?
My only side effect at first was zombie like and sleepiness.... and huge pupils. Now I'm fine. I really hope we all snap back to reality. This is so stupid. I'm always wondering and thinking back to see why the hell this came back

Me too! Sometimes I'm "am I recovered but now OCD?" And then Bam! I get hit with hyper awareness and reminded that I'm still in hell

Xanax helps for sure. I don't take it everyday but when I do I see a different. Like today. I had high anxiety/panic/paranoid for no reason and I took half and it helped. Also I think I need to be on a higher dose of Effexor. I don't think 35.7 is enough and we wants to keep me on this for a month. I think I need 75mg. I hate medication and I can't believe this hell has me taking some. Ridiculous
