It's the panic symptom or panic attack. This happens to me too. It is a fear of yours that you are afraid to lose your mind or when you are having panic about something else you fear, then the adrenaline hormone begins to pump through the body leaving you in the fight/flight mode and this has an effect on the mind cause really, there isn't anything to run from. I would deep breathe and tell yourself, you are not crazy, cause in reality and you can ask a Psychiatrist this, if you think you're going crazy, that's when you really are not crazy. Crazy people do not think they are abnormal or losing their minds. Now if you want to commit suicide and really want to, not thinking about it cause you are afraid you're going crazy, then I would seek help.

Re: craqzy mind

That makes me think of the very first panic attack I ever had.
I was 16 years old and taking clothes out of the dryer...one second I was fine and the next second I was scared to death, but I had no idea what I was scared of or why I was even scared.
The first thing that entered my mind was..."I'm going crazy, I'm losing my mind."
When I went to the Doctor the first thing out of my mouth was..."I'm going crazy"...and the first thing out of his mouth was..."No, you're not, if you were you wouldn't think you were, you'd think you were sane."
He ran tons of blood tests and EKG's and to many other tests to name.
They all came back normal, that's when he told me what I had was panic disorder.
It helped so much just to hear that Man say that I wasn't going crazy.
I'm not going to tell you that the next time I had an attack that it didn't scare me, because it did...but I knew I wasn't losing my mind and I knew I wasn't going to die from it and just knowing that helped me so very much.

Re: craqzy mind

Hi ainfante and Graciecat...

Thank you both for your replies.

I do have an anxiety dissorder. But I don't always get this 'crazy going mind' feeling. Where my brain feels soooo under pressure/stress/over thinking/fear... it feels like it's going to BLOW UP, just like a bomb, it's so hard and I feel that I can't control it... this is why I think I could be going crazy, but I do understand that if I was to go crazy, I would think I am . But, this what happens to me can lead to me loosing my mind.

I don't know how to get out of this mess. I'm affraid of the autside world. Affraid to live, to go out, hate crowdy places and noisy plances, but where I live it's pure noise. Cars, police etc...

I mostly stay indoors and in my room most of the time which I belieave makes it all worse.

Oh God, If I could feel normal again...

do any of you have MSN? If you wouldn't mind having a chat? I like talking to people

my MSN is: [email]decapitatedwinds@msn.com[/email]

Thank you for your replies again
