> pain, or stress to a certain extent. I litterly dont know if im in a dream, its like part of my brain shut "off".

It sounds like depersonalization/dissassociation to a degree, but I wouldn't rule out a medication or psychological induced situation.

> There are things i cant talk about but, when it happens, memory loss, i have retrack everywhere i've been and check the time. That's scary.


It sounds like, possibly, the Xanax has begun to affect short term memory. But I wouldn't rule out psychological/psychodynamic reasons too.


I can relate, I mean, there are things that I am very forgetful about. But you get in schedule by making checklists, putting things you need (keys, wallet, etc) in one place, say by the door, or wherever.


Eventually you might want to start thinking about tapering a bit off the Xanax, but that's something you have to do very carefully, because you could have a rebound of anxiety. And its a catch-22 because the anxiety itself can cause some depersonalization.


> I think its because im too hard on myself about everyday simple things. And think inaquate. I need help from people, but the only help is switching.


Its far too easy, I know myself at least, to fall into a state where you are too hard on yourself. Feelings of inadequacy, lack of self-esteem. Life-building and confidence building therapy and tasks are best to prove to yourself that you are capable.


And I wouldn't rule out psychological testing. Unfortunately most insurance, or wherever you may be, won't pay for that.
