If I try to reach for the memory, I can't find it.
I can't find a memory, though I'm trying to.
> So I'm guessing it wasn't simply the thought that you've done this before, but instead some intense sensation? Did yours come with the smell or taste that I tend to experience? Where you disoriented?
It's a powerful sensation. I am in its grip. Depending on the situation I will let it run it's course, or I will try to focus my attention on something else, maybe something tangible in the environment. It sort of feels like going down too fast on an elevator, and a strong sensation of fear, along with a certain fuzziness, because I feel in some way disconnected from my surroundings. There is a sensation after it had passed, like something drained from me, maybe a slight headache.
I don't get the smells.
When I had the worst of the episodes, years ago, over 10 years ago, I heard voices a couple of times.
Those were much more intense, with garbled speech, if I tried to speak, being unable to respond appropriately, I think some fidgety kind of movements. Those ended with bad headaches.
However, now I have the much less intense version. Something I remember having all the way back to grade school.

That, I suppose, is the thing to pay attention to.
On the other hand, you have different fingers.
