No fear here! Just a little anxiety...but that runs with my personality so its fairly common for me. I just wish I could lift the haze that seems to be around me. Its hard to focus or get anything done (and its not because I'm lazy!). I just struggle during some of these changes because it seems like we become so much more aware and thus WAYYY overstimulated at times...do you notice this feeling? Quoting: MissionInvisible
Surreal~ness has become a normal state of mind for me, however, virtual discussion and relationships here on line may contribute to that ??? Quoting: TS66
Having face to face relationships have become harder for me, the real world around me seems a little out of focus, and people in my life, just no longer seem to hold my interest.
Just my own observation, and does not necessarily pertain to anyone else. I just know for my own good, I need to break this addiction sooner than later.
Seems like both of you described the same thing, in a different perspective lol.
I experience the anxiety, hardship of maintaining relationships that offer nothing of meaning to you, feeling zoned out, etc..
I have always been a pretty big gamer and yes the PC can have an effect on you to make you feel disconnected, but in recent years its become much worse, increasingly so the past 72 hours. (And I am off the PC much more now then I was then.)
I do go outside a lot, meditate and try to bring upon myself new revelations, philosophize and conceptualize...I eat right, no Mal-nutrition and I exercise.
Time goes faster it seems now. I am aware of things more often. Overstimulated? Kind of...I have been feeling very similar effects to that of MDMA...weird, but nice.
Then again, maybe TS is right. Too much of this stuff maybe. Could be subconsciously providing ourselves the medium for a self-fulfilled prophecy. Kind of like thinking your sugar pills are narcotics and you feel the effects. They call that schizophrenia you know. Delusions.
