Yeah it's not a new thing I have had it before in the past, and things have been really stressful with university, work and life in general.

If it is mild it can be just temporary thing but if you fell it strong you may want to go to a doctor, or therapist. I had something like this many times but real mild so i am not sure what this may be happening.

Yes! I've had anxiety depression and panic attacks for years. However this is a new symptom i'm feeling like im in a dream state when im in public. This has been going on for me 3 months now today being the worse. I walked in walmart today and it felt like i was dreaming and was like OMG I'm about to freak out in front of all these people. I got my stuff and got out quick. it was so freaky. i take klonopin 1 mg a night for anxiety and sleep. i have been on it almost 4 years.

"glass box". Feels like you are living in a bubble in public when anxiety is high... I feel like I'm there but not. I'm living my life through these glass walls and I've put them there, time to take them down!

I feel these panic attacks come on out of the blue. Like one person said, you are just doing your shopping and boom it hits you, like you just have to get out of there. I hate that feeling. I get to my car, lock the door and turn up the music so I can't hear myself think. All I want to do is go home and crawl into bed, where I feel safe. I talk my meds, and wait to calm down, and just breath and close my eyes.

Oh yes, It is what is making my life unbearable, its as if everything is passing me by and I'm just lost. It is really though only when in public, and I look around and often scare myself, I look and say is this real, nothing seems real, I'm looking around and feel like I'm in a dream world, oh why do we have to experience these horrible feelings.

yes ismith13 is right its derealization. all derealization is, is another symptom of anxiety that i did not know about til i experienced it and came home looking my symptom up. Been nice to of had a warning of this. its scary enough as it is without being freaked out thinking is something worse.

I definately feel this way a lot when I'm nervous. It's probably the scariest side effect to me because I feel like I must be losing my mind. I just try to remind myself that I've felt this on and off for the last 9 yrs and it will pass.

I do too. Its like I'm in a movie, or watching one starring me and my life. Its fuzzy and unclear and totally unreal. I try to ride it out the best I can, take a few moments to myself and use positive self talk to get through it.

Maybe this sounds strange, but I have a smal figurine I take in my hands and feel it whenever I feel somehow connected with reality

Yes I feel like this a lot; I don't enjoy any activities because I constantly feel in a dream state; like I am not in my own body; this is one of my main concerns; I have been taking citalopram for 5 years now though so I think this has something to do with it. I need to see a doctor as my anxiety and depression is getting very bad at the moment.

I feel like this most days. I'm constantly in a dream state and unable to connect with people. Even my friends, whom I've connected with in the past, seem distant when I'm like this. I don't know what to say, what to do. So I just sit in silence, hoping that I'll snap out of it.

Yes! Today I was walking down the street and I didn't feel like I was in my body. Couldn't even feel my feet walking on the ground I was tempted to walk barefoot!

People talking at you but you can't follow what they are saying, head feels fuzzy, feeling tired and drained no motivation.

This is a common stress reaction, and it doesn't mean that you're going mad or anything. It can also be the result of chronic fatigue and may be a sign that there is a physical problem that needs looking at. If your symptoms persist, I would advise you to check it out with your doctor.

I often get where I feel like I am in a dream. I think it may be like a defense mechanism, where you just shut off part of your brain.

I definitely get periods of derealization when I'm under a lot of panic. Because my anxiety is largely due to panic over physical health symptoms, I'll enter that dream "bubble", where people will be talking to me, or I'll be doing something and it won't even feel like it's happening. It's like I'm viewing my own sensations and perceptions from a third person within my own mind. Speaking of which, I had a couple bouts of derealization just today alone.

I feel like this too sometimes - I think I was told it is depersonalisation?? In social situations I can often feel like it's not happening, I'm disconnected, I can't concentrate, feel very spaced out. It is very bizarre and not good at all :(

I feel like that sometimes. Sometimes I feel as though everything is some sort of alternate reality or that I am not a real being in the world I'm in, or I just feel so incredibly distant and far away from the situation and setting I'm actually in.

sounds a bit like derealization and depersonalization and yes, I have experienced it during particularly bad depressive and anxious episodes.
