I Have Been Diagnosed With Clinical Depression And Anxiety Disorder About 20 Years Ago.

Also thank you Patrick! It's so good to know that it's a passing feeling! I was afraid that I would be "stuck" in this really uncomfortable and scary feeling forever!

Yes, that makes sense to me! I feel like I'm stuck inside my body, or my head, and can't get out and that makes me feel somewhat claustrophobic and scared, and panicky... I think I'm going crazy! Thank you! Now I don't feel so "weird"! It's good to know I'm not the only one experiencing these feelings! Thanks again!

What you feeling Elizabeth is ‘normal’ for people with anxiety and or depression. For me it always starts with anxiety and will most certainly trigger depression-that feeling of dislocation is due to our illness - the way I describe it is your own mind dragging you into yourself to the point that that the outside world becomes less distinct because you’re trapped within yourself - if that makes sense

Hello Elizabeth, I actually have had that feeling many times over. I dont know where it comes from, or how long it will last. I think your right though it can be caused from severe anxiety. I usually stay in a comfort place and try to work through it. Try to not let it scare you too much, it is a passing feeling. I believe you will do just fine on your new job.
