I can feel my life!

    I cant feel my life!

    For some strange reason, Ive been thinking alot about this. Every day that passes and every thing that I do right after that I feel like I have done nothing and accomplished nothing. Its like a feeling of emptiness and this has been going on for the past few months. Its making me question things and scares me sometimes. For example If I travel to my neighboring city and comeback during the weekend I feel like it was all a haze and a blur like more of a dream than reality.And the other day i took out the trash but i have absolutely no recollection of it, i only knew i took it out cuz the trash bag wasnt in my room no more.i dont know if it can be some sort of dementia,im 22.

    I would recommend seeing a psychiatrist/psychologist.

    Definitely seek medical help. Some forms of depression can make a person feel that way.

    Edit: So can drug use or excessive drinking.

    I get strange feelings of disconnection sometimes. It happened fairly often when I was around your age. Of course I could very likely be diagnosed with depression.

    Pft. I do that all the time.

    It's more a matter of distraction. Perhaps too many things are going on in your life.

    Not necessarily, no. Depression manifests in myriad ways.

    See a general practitioner. They can do some basic tests and bloodwork which will give them some idea if it's physical, like some kind of organ not working right or blood circulation problem, etc. They will also be able to determine if you might need to see a neurologist.

    Ive had this feeling for awhile now that if i get a cat scan there'd be something wrong,im almost certain of it.

    Which they can then treat, if that's true. Still, it might be something completely different, like a heart problem that is making you light headed all the time.

    Best to see a doc and go from there. Avoiding bad news won't make it better.

    Perhaps you are depressed, or merely disillusioned. IIRC worrying about having health problems (which you indicate a few times) is one symptom of depression. You could see a psychiatrist if you want. Or you may not need to. I really can't say.

    You should see your family doctor. He will determine if you should see a shrink or get a cat scan.

    Seriously, that's what they're there for.
