I have had crippling anxiety over the past couple weeks, to the point where I feel detached from what is going on right in front of me. It's so bad, I even get secondhand anxiety from watching certain situations play out on TV shows, like having dinner in a fancy restaurant. I broke down crying just from being around too many people and being overwhelmed. I also can't stop ruminating on past mistakes and decisions I've made. It's constant and it's mentally exhausting. I fixate on random things and memories. I don't know if I'm so anxious that it's gone full circle and I'm depressed, or if it is just extreme anxiety. The rumination is exhausting. Does anyone have a similar experience? What can help? Please, I don't know what to do.
