Hi,

I got put on anti depressants about 7 weeks ago. I don't know if I have a personality disorder, but I keep getting confused lately. I have health anxiety so I would really appeciate meaningful replies.

I keep getting confused as to who I am. Really badly. And confused about the world around me. I understand what it is but my brain can't seem to register it. It panics me. It's like when I concentrate too much on another person I forget who I am, what I did yesterday, what I did today. I just forget because I'm too absorbed in something else.

Please help me - what is this, what's happening to me. I'm absolutely terrified, it almost brought on a panic attack (haven't had panic attacks in years).

Please help. :( x

I'm on Citalopram, only on 10mg. I don't really want to up the dosage because I've got really bad health anxiety so I don't want to rely on medication...

I've read about depersonalisation and derealisation but figured these feelings must be too strong...?

I'm in counselling. It's just the fact it's all getting more frequent. Every time I go to bed I feel like I'm risking losing my consciousness forever.

Thankyou very much Willcat. I appreciate the concern. It does help. :hug:

Hi littlepixiez,

I am sorry to hear this is happening to you.

For myself, I get that a fair amount. Very frusterating. For me it feels like the whole world stops and waits for me to figure out who or what it is. I find it humiliating. What I have done is altered my daily structure so there is less rush. That seems to work for me.

Hope your pdoc can help you work it out,
