Thought I was basically recovered :(

The last month I seriously thought I was basically recovered. I felt somewhat happy, connected, and the weird thoughts were almost all gone. I was living life as normal as possible. I still had this weird lingering sensation but I thought with time it would go away too. Now I feel like it's all coming back again. All of a sudden I feel like I can't think properly, my memory sucks, and possibly brain fog is coming back and I feel a disconnect when I talk like I did when this first happened. I connected back then disconnected again ???????????? I feel so frustrated. I'm scared I'll never know normal again or be a normal happy functioning person after all this.

Keep pushing. I have these days all the time. We can't give up. I can't remember if you told me you take medication? I am going to see a new psychiatrist next week and I'm praying he can help because I can't believe I been like this for 6 months.
No, no meds. Ugh it's so frustrating. Good luck with the psychiatrist! I really liked mine. 6 months for me too ????

Well that's great you were recovering without meds... hopefully it will happen again! Or are you gonna try a medication?
Oh thanks! Yeah I'm glad I got as far as I did without meds. I think I'll keep trying the non med route. I'm pretty sensitive to meds and I think they'll make things worse. Thinking about trying acupuncture soon! They claim it's good for built up anxiety
If meds work for you, stick with them. Good luck with everything, I hope you find something that works for you!
did u do anything that help u get thru this? i feel like i lost my personality, i think its brain fog, but yeah its like im almost faking everything i say, howd u get past that part
Time honestly... and honestly I still feel a bit that way. But time really helps. I'd say I've really tried to be distracted and still live my life and do things I like. Just trying to bring me back to myself. I also think EMDR therapy helped me too, I noticed I started recovering after 2nd session. Fake it till you make it has been my motto through all this. Hoping we all get back to ourselves!

Hi Courtney
When you were getting better did you still have a low lieing feeling of something being not quiet right?
And I'm very sorry that your having a set back , it happened to me last year its very disappointing i know .
But im sure you will get back there again we did obce before
Yeah that's exactly how I've been feeling. Like something is just off and I can't really describe it. Thank you ????
