OK I am scared at the moment, I wonder if anybody else has had this.

Earlier on I started to feel less ill generally, almost numb inside, not depressed, jst almost too good, I did not feel as goggle eyed, I am really confused, and I cant help thinking its because I am dying now or about to lose my mind or something, and have numbed to all the bad feelings, this may be the stupidest thing I have ever said but I really feel like it and I am really scared, its like I am wishing the bad feelings back really hard, I want my headache back, I want to feel anxiety in my stomach, so I know I am alive and conciouss, I am really confused.. my stress headache is coming back now coz I have been worrying for a couple of hours now about this, my ears feel a bit funny and there is slight pressure at the back of my eyes I think

its almost like I dont KNOW how I feel! kinda blank!?!

any advice?

It's just that every new feeling us anxious people get, we totally exaggerate. I've had the numbness with dp/dr before but a lot of other people on here can relate to it more, because I here people on here talk about it a lot. But a weird thing I worry about is when I feel really happy, I get kind of giddy and it feels weird and I start worrying what if I'm going crazy because I'm too happy. One of my few experiences with the numbness was when I had my first bad panic attack and my dr was really bad and I was trying to think of depressing stuff just so I could feel something. I had that feeling again when I took too much Xanax and so ever since then I take only tiny doses of Xanax. All of this is totally non-life threatening, we just worry about every feeling we have too much. I know this was probably not very helpful so hopefully some other people can come shine some light on it for you.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy may help with this problem. It will help you manage the times when you feel like you don't know how to think, or like you are a slave to a certain way of thinking.
