I need some help and advice.

I have anxiety/panic since a few mounths back and with that many feelings come and go.

Right now i have this feeling were im not recorgnize who i am, i know its me but i feel different.. And so does everything. It feels like a New world or a New life and it scares me a lot. Also feel like im out of control.

When i try to think back When i was "normal" i cant really remember how it was. It feels like that wasn't me back then, or like i was an another human.

Also had existenciall thoughts few days ago and thought about how wierd life and humans are.. Of course that also scared me, and now the world feels unconfortable.

Any advice ?
Im Talking to a therapist but im not going to See him for 3 weeks.

Hi Terry and :welcome:

That sounds like a significant existential crisis. They can be a source of a lot of stress, and can even tip you over the edge into psychosis if you're not careful. I think it would be good to recognise that youre a little vulnerable in this state, and need some extra taking care of. So make sure you get enough sleep, and don't do anything silly like getting really drunk or using recreational drugs.

Maybe plan some extra relaxing activities like swimming or a dance workshop, or nature walks, and focus on doing work at a steady pace in order to keep your mind off things. Do things that connect you with other people, like board games or other shared activities.

If it gets worse, and especially if you start suffering three or more nights of really poor sleep in succession, I'd visit my GP and talk to him about it. He might be able to give you some anti anxiety meds, or sleeping medications, which will help you get over the hump.

Good luck!
