What is wrong with me, this is the worst anxiety ever.
Lately this idea has popped up in my head that has made me feel like i'm losing my grip on reality.
I have severe OCD and Depression in which i've been trying to get treated over the last 18 months or so.
I feel as if everything around me isn't real or true. I've been implanted with this idea that i'm the only person on earth who is truly alive. I feel as if everything else around me is fake and are appirations that were just made up to make me live. Picture this, I'm the only person i've ever lived, I've never been someone else, I've only been me, and I will always be me, I'll never be anyone else. I see my life through "first person" and i witness everybody elses lives through "third person". So my mind plays tricks on me and basically says, "how do I know these are really living human beings? I can only see them in action, I don't really know if they are truly people." Same with anything in exisitence. I know this sounds really stupid, part of me knows this is stupid to think about, but it makes me wonder that everything on earth is just a figment of my life and my relationships with people are just fake relationships with people who don't really exist or are alive.
I know this sounds really strange, but what do you think this could be?
Any comments? It makes me really anxious and it's making me very sad, scared and makes me feel alone.

yeah i had anxiety all my life and when i was young i thought like that before its just your anxiety it cant hurt you only if you let it and you will allow it to freak you out by obsessing over this idea or any other and it will only cause elevated anxiety and depression, its not true your mind is running away from you. try to stay calm, and for me laying down and taking 3 NATURAL deep breaths and in 5 minutes i start feeling better. Also simple as it is, talking to someone about this can really help even if its your mother, sister or close friend so you dont feel alone which feeling alone makes everything so much worse. good luck and try to stay calm.
