I have only been on Daily Strength for just a few days now and I love it, but I feel like my anxiety is just not bad compared to others...symptom wise I do not have constant struggles. I have chest pressure here and there and my heart races a good bit, but I feel like I cannot related to many of the other people on here because they are struggling so much more. I have one area that is the hardest for me. Its called derealization. I feel like I do not exist...like everything I touch is not actually there and that I am just looking through a fog. When I had my first anxiety attack it was late at night and I started to feel very detached. Outside was dark and when I came inside I started to get tingling sensations in my legs and arms. As all of that was happening I felt like everything I saw was going black and I felt like I was going to slowing slip away into my mind (it is so difficult to understand if you haven't felt that way...I just don't know how to explain it.) I have talked to my therapist about these feelings and we think that my trigger is when I think about losing someone that I love. I am so terrified that I will not be able to survive one of these attacks. Some days I am perfectly fine..hardly any anxiety. But other days all I can think about it not feeling like my world is real. The past few weeks I have had better day than not, but anytime I have to think about losing someone I start to get anxiety. I honestly am afraid of going to funerals, graveyards, or anything that is related to death because I am sacred I will start to feel detached. I do not if anyone feels this way, but if you do please let me know because I feel very alone.
