I slept in until 10am but I did go to bed quite late I feel really tired and run down I worry I am dying or something. The other day it was my appetite which went but it’s come back now I feel tired?

Is it normal to not feel alive due to anxiety? Like separated from yourself or distant like a depersonalization thing?

yes. this can be called dissociation. it’s a defense mechanism that our brains use when we are under immense stress or trauma. it can be triggered by thoughts of traumatic events from the past. therapists can teach you ways to ground yourself during stressful situations.

Yes what triggered my worry about being tired was I read that when you have a terminal illness and dying you sleep more so I worry tiredness could be a sign of illness? That’s the problem with anxiety you google stuff
