Does anyone here ever feel like they're not themselves anymore when really anxious...like you know you're looking out of your own eyes, but you don't feel like you're connected to your own body? I feel like that right now. I feel like that most of the time. I feel so helpless. Does anyone ever hope that they'd just pass out or fall over unconscious so they'd be taken to a hospital and maybe they'll figure out what's wrong? Does anyone feel like dying is a better option than having to deal with this all day every day?
i feel like this all the time i thought i was the only one when i went to see my doctor i told her i had this feeling everyday and sometimes i get so disoriented that ,i feel as if my head is so stuffed up almost like i am a ghost or something it really freaks me out so i have panic attacks all the the time and when i get really bad i feels like I'm having a heart attack and almost passes out or do pass out(really embarrassing)so my doctor has me on Prozac(20mg) cause my anxiety/panic disorder has given me depression (and a little bit of ocd)and on I'm xanax(.25) for the panic attacks cause I'm always getting them especially at night time ,so I'm sorry for babbling on i just wanted to let you know i feel for you and now I'm not alone in feeling like this maybe one off theses days we'll feel normal.

It's nice knowing I'm not the only one. It happens so much, I feel like I don't eve n know who I am anymore. I spend so much time depersonalized, I don't know if it's possible to be me again...whoever that is. Sigh.
I have felt like this after having my first panic attack and i really felt disconnected from my family and my own kids. I know what you mean by feeling like you are in your own body and i felt at the time like my life was not real. It was really scary and weird. I hate the feelings of anxiety but it looks like it isn't gonna go away so we just have to find a way to handle it and deal with it.
