Hi @Yonchew and welcome to the forum.

I am very sorry you’re struggling with anxiety. I can relate to what you’re going through. My anxiety is getting worse and worse everyday. I thought I had psychosis few weeks ago. I was told by both my psychiatrist and psychologist that it’s only anxiety.

Maybe you’ve been reading stuff online or searching about what anxiety will develop into?

Sometimes, staying away from the subject of anxiety is better. Try to ignore what you here or see and change convince yourself that it’s only anxiety. It’s hard but not impossible.

I hope you feel better soon.

Anxiety and depersonalization can be really scary, and they can have a big effect on your life.

I think that anxiety can also cause people to be scared that they may have other illnesses when they actually don't. I say this to try to reassure you and not to invalidate you.

Hearing voices is different from hearing your own inner voice or your thoughts. And so while I think that what you're experiencing is distressing and worrying you, the psychiatrist is right in that it isn't psychotic.

Has the psychiatrist offered you any kind of treatment at all for your anxiety?
It's not easy to cope with without some support.

Also wanted to say that anxiety makes depersonalization worse, and depersonalization can cause anxiety. You probably already know that but sometimes it's worth keeping that in mind when one takes over.
