" All the time. It's like you have a bubble in your head?

Are you on any meds? When I was on Zoloft and Effexor (not at the same time), I had that feeling all of the time. Now I get it when it's about to rain (there is a link between heavy barometric conditions and anxiety). Or if I've taken a lot of klonopin due to some thick anxiety (for instance, when I fly).

If you're like me, then you probably aren't drinking caffeine, but when I feel empty headed, I find a cup of decaf or a hot chocolate has just enough caffeine to bring everything back into focus. You might give that a try. "

" Don't know if this is what you mean, but feel some mornings especially, that my brain is frozen, like a computer, it just freezes up, can't think, reason, make decisions, I hate it,I don't understand it, but there it is, frozen for awhile, seems to start to "thaw" out as day progresses, but it's a horrible way to start a day, and have to tell your family < "please be patient, my brain is temporarily frozen".

" I get this feeling as well. I don't know why mornings are so hard, but I do get better as the day goes on. My best time is at night. I am on zoloft as well. It took it about 2 mths to start helping me, but I am better. I do still have bad days. The symptoms in my head are the absolute worst. I can't stand the floating, detached feeling. Just try to do something to get it off your mind.
