That word doesn't exactly apply to me...

The ironic thing is half of the pills the doctor would want to shove down my throat would probably kill me rather than help me. I don't think this is life threatening as It's happened to me since a young age.

Actually, I posted this thread to see what everyone else had to say. I didn't want a push to go to the doctor, I wanted to share and further my knowledge. Telling me to go see the candy man does not accomplish anything.

Forgetting reality and mind is part of ADD/ADHD?

rather than apoligise to the other people
ill apoligise to you op
sorry if what i said offended or anything
ill rephrase, go to the doctors but only take medication if you have a serious issue such as epilpsy (which i think is highly unlikely)
i just think that you would put yourself in more danger taking anything doctors give you for a psychalogical issue.
fact is if its not a serious issue they dont properly understand it, but wont hesitate on giving you drugs that they dont fully understand
i enjoy when this feeling happens to me cause it actually brings me closer to reality.
try not to fear it as youll probably make it worse

In difficult or uncomfortable situations your brain tries to "separate" from your body and the situation. Just like some animals faint or their eyes close when there is danger.
Once you know that it is anxiety related it is your job to know when it is happening and take control over it if you don't want to take drugs.
That is if this is anxiety related, that was how I controlled mine.

Right. Apologies for my own assumptions there. I for sure share your contempt for the drug dealers in lab coats, but this does not mean all doctors are a negative. You might just need a good round of therapy.

My advice means nothing but if I were to experience your symptoms, the one thing I *wouldnt* do would be to go it alone.

Ive first hand experienced the effects of this kinda stuff so its for sure a personal thing for me. I certainly didnt mean to imply i know whats best for you.

I don't blank out during social situations I view as uncomfortable, I just try my hardest, usually to my own demise, to diffuse it (stop it) from happening. The blanking out usually happens when I'm doing something unusual. Fire alarm at school, going out to eat with family, and randomly but almost never at home. Deja-vu is a daily occurrence.

Sounds to me like a disconnect or stepping out of what's going on around you. Yes, this can be very enlightening as you are able to distance yourself from the world and become an observer. If you only feel distant and your mind is blank because your observing then it doesn't sound like a seizure and if your not having seizures or anything unwanted then I wouldn't worry about it to much, just enjoy the gift you have been given and go along for the ride. Pick up what ever you can as an observer as it is a way of accessing your higher self. Know yourself is also an important aspect of these experiences. Learn as much as you can.

My past couple years has been like this, it seems to just progress. Everyday is almost a new day for me, I really have a hard time remembering the prior day let alone a day before that. I completely confuse events from different days and have gotten to the point where I do not really bring up something unless I remember it in great detail (and even then...probably only remember the event, not when or sometimes where it happened).

Social interactions seem more trivial by the day, my "blankness" now encompasses my desires, interests, goals, and motivation. I simply don't remember to do what I want, or what I should. Now I work full time; supervising, work hard, and am a good employee. But I have the mentality of at work "I'll work my ass off and it pays off, and after...kick back." I don't know, I do not care about what happens really. Just go with the flow... :\

What's uber annoying about all this, is my mind is very active and I am a very ocd and complex thinker. I analyze and break down everything I see, am very critical, pragmatic, calculating, but understanding and seek the right answer whether I may not at first agree with it. Smart, yes. Forgetful, equally. I kind of want an economic apocalypse to happen or zombies, just so I either end up on the Highway to Hell-0 or my survival instinct kicks in.

Is it deja vu as in "already seen" which is also described by people who experience frontal lobe epilepsy? Or is it a type of deja that you link the memory and familiarity to something you dreamed about days, weeks, months before the event takes place, this is known Deja Reve.

I also feel as if this can possibly be the case. I am very observant of the world around me and try to connect to it on a different level... argh, why does my brain have to be so difficult. Sometimes it is exhilarating

Usually I remember the event happening before, sometimes yes in my dreams. I never feel Deja-vu from something I haven't experienced before.

Butterfly effect + Inception? Cool.

Maybe you could start writing a journal, or if you still think that you're still dreaming, maybe the best chance is to kill yourself (strictly not advised). I'll give a riddle: You are waiting for a train, a train that will take you far a way. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter because we'll be together.

Eheheh Cheers.

I actually just think about gravity to see if I'm dreaming. If I start floating and gravity goes wacky, I know I'm dreaming. It's a little trick that comes in pretty handy.

This is a state advanced meditators reach. It is a state of Singularity. A sign of Genius. I have experienced it a few times. Be glad it comes so natural to you. If you have not experienced this state you really can not advise someone who has. It is definitely a spiritual/dimensional reality.

If you were to place something in that space and hold it, it should manifest into reality. I have done it many times. You must be an Indigo Child.There is absolutely nothing wrong with you. Those who have never experienced this, live in a dualistic state of mind. To be one minded is to be aligned with God. You have a gift.

I'm going to second the advice to go to the doctor. About five years ago one of my close friends started having moments like you describe, as well as feeling like sometimes his concentration wandered. I don't know what he said exactly to the Doctor, but he was advised to have an MRI. When he did, they realized he was having mini seizures in his brain. This was not what they were looking for. He is a very smart person- this kind of stuff can happen to any of us.

Good luck, I am sending good thoughts your way.

Ever try meditating?

After a good night's sleep, we wake up and realize that whatever just happened in our dream state was unreal. The belief in the reality of our dream circumstances dissolves into our current state of consciousness.

This brings up a paradox. From our vantagepoint of the waking state, we can see that the sense of reality experienced in the dream state is incorrect and invalid. The next question is whether there any way for us to validate the sense of reality we experience in the waking state?

Definitely? As in 100%? As in Absolutely true, with no room for interpretation or error?

Do you *really* feel comfortable throwing down such a definitive conclusion? Is there a 0% chance in your mind that this woman might have a brain tumor? Or a mental disorder? Are you *definitely* able and equipped to make such a call?

Im not saying my worst cases are the reality, and of course I hope they are not! But I wouldnt be so foolish as to describe her symptoms as a definite total positive. The truth is, you and I have NO idea what might be wrong, or right, with this anon stranger.

How might you feel, I wonder, if she took your 'definite' advice and didnt seek medical attention, and later died of a brain tumor? Would you take full responsibility for your 'definitive' advice, or instead retreat into plausible uncertainty?

Perhaps she is experiencing some extra dimensional divide. If this is the case, seeing a specialist shouldnt be a problem at all.

Really, are you serious? Do you really believe that someone on ats can be responsible for the death of someone just because they wrote a post? Would you take advice from a post on ats? This lady has an iq of 140, she doesn't sound irresposible to me.

Something similar like this happens to me quite often. I space out frequently, forget what I was thinking about and or forget what I was going to say. Sometimes I randomly forget the name of something while I'm talking about it and takes me a few moments to hit me. I feel like my mind is disconnected from my body, but somehow I'm still here.

For me, I think it's just my absent mindedness or thinking about too many things but not everything is processing through my conscious mind. I started getting like this years ago. It could be some form of depression, but this all doesn't bother me too much.
