But I feel I have been suffering from these since I was a child. I am on Prozac and Xanax and have been mostly stable for many years now and only see my psychiatrist every 6 months. Since the corona virus outbreak in March, and my best male friend of over 10 years was diagnosed with Alzheimers and placed in a facility in June, I have been suffering from severe anxiety!

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!

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
Ditto Patrick hang in there mental illness is a horrendous beast .
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.
