Note-I’m NOT asking for medical advice, I just wondered if someone else knows what this is.
Okay, sometimes, in the past months (usually around my period), I’ll just be sitting, thinking about something, when a particular word, or phrase, or odor will trigger a sort of “episode”, that feels like I do when I’m dreaming, (weird situations, strange people, etc), and I start to feel all panicky and start having a panic attack until it passes. It’s usually less than a minute, and it feels like microsleep, except it happens when I’m NOT tired as well, or when I’m reading. It happened again just now, triggered somehow by the smell of a musty old library book.
Am I going nuts?
