So for as long as I can remember I have had issues with depression /anxiety/OCD an OCD intrusive thoughts which always increased my anxiety, I'm 21 now and 2 months ago sitting in my room I started to get a sudden feeling of feeling disconnected from my body and all within an hour of a massive panic attack I started feeling stuck in a dream and as if nothing exists and everything seemed fake and dream/movie like, as if I was super aware of my own consciousness

2 months later I'm still stuck in this dream like feeling, accompanied by a constant panic of if I have schizophrenia, constant panic about my own consciousness, constant panic about why nothing feels real which leads me to have 24/7 thoughts about what is reality, is anything real? What does real mean? How do we exist? What does existing even mean? The sheer thought of existence is making me have heightened anxiety.

These last two months I've lost all track of time, everyday feels like a dream, I'm stuck in my head constantly ruminating about existential thoughts, just looking at faces of loved ones I keep panicking about is any of this real, how is it real, what if I go crazy, am I already crazy?

I've been seeing a therapist for a few weeks who thinks I just have high levels of panic/anxiety and depression which stems from my upbringing, even as I'm typing this I'm having a constant thought and feeling about is this even real and how is anything real? I must have already gone crazy ????‍♂

i can relate
and i dont think you're crazy :) (it may feel like that sometimes, i know, but, "crazy people dont know theyre crazy" or something along those lines)
has your dr. prescribed you something for the anxiety/depression? or are they just treating you with therapy?

So I've been given 20mg fluoxetine which have defiantly helped the panic attacks but now I'm just stuck in this empty feeling of constant deep thoughts
