Hey Girlinterrupted-I had that feeling for a while years ago...I used to attribute it to my meds. I had PTSD back then...I only read up on it recently though, and what you are experiencing seems to fall in line with PTSD or someone who is an abuse survivor; I can see a connection betwen feeling like that and hypervigilience, but not as extreme. If abuse/PTSD doesn't apply to you, you might want to try prozac anyway.

Prozac is supposed to work better for PTSD, so I would think someone with comparable symptoms too, I forget why but there is research on that.

I didn't take Prozac long enough to judge its efficacy, but my anxiety dissapeared by the 2nd day of my trial, and it was pretty severe at the time. It gave me weird neurological symptoms, though, not ones that effect the way you feel-but it sort of freaked me out and I couldn't continue it. I'm a pill phobic; anything that gives me strange symptoms scares me away. I think about going back to try it again, but haven't been able to get myself to.

Well the good news is that feeling can go away--I haven't felt that for a long time. I think it will for you too.
