I have had panic attacks, and general anxiety about everthing. sometimes I can't function due to the anxiety and i lose days. I think the anxiety is causing the loss of reality things I don't know what to call them. Reality dims, actually I wake up to a conscious level, sometimes I miss an entire conversation but the person I am speaking to seems to think I am still with it I just don't know I have been speaking. Does this make sense. I don't know what to call these you would call them black outs if I drank but I don't. The neuro calls them partial seizures but I wonder since non of the meds are stopping them and the therapist calls them part of the dissociative disorder too. So I am confused. I am getting more anxious because they are happening more and I think I need a medication to help with the anxiety to see if they would stop. Since they themselves from what I read dissociation disorders don't always respond well to meds especially depersonalization which I think this a part of. I don't really know yet. I was hoping maybe someone else has some experience or knows someone that might send some light and help with the med part. The therapist is out of town of course. I guess I will just call the neuro and see if I can get in to see her and then maybe get a p-doc recommendation. I am trying to call a friend that is psycologist (ms) to see if she can help too. I read on one of the site someone here recommended that group therapy can be helpful so I am trying to find a situation for that too. Anything. I am anxious about everything. Thanks for responding though. I am seeing a gp but this out of her league. I asked for something for anxiety and she wasn't helpful. Just wanting to give me another AD but it was wellbutrin. Not what I think I need really. And the neuro disagreed. She suggested lexapro. I would like to find a p-doc that specializes in mood disorders. That would be most helpful. But if someone here thought a particular drug would help maybe the neuro would give it too me until I found a p-doc. Anyway, just a thought. RK
