I've been experiencing a lot of zoning out lately. Usually I pay it no mind. It only happens a few times a week. But it happens more and more every single day and it worries me. Is anyone else like that, where they zone out more than they want to, for no real reason? It only scares me because I look into everything.

Are you lost in thought? How does it feel like when you zone out. Also, have you recently been experiencing episodes of high anxiety?

Not even in thought. Usually thinking about nothing or very little. It doesn't feel like anything in particular. And yes, episodes of high anxiety. I know because my body is also being taxed by it. Sore muscles just from worrying so much. Have you experienced such before?

I don't really zone out, but it might be your body's response to the high anxiety. I get really tired and kind of depressed after anxiety attacks. It makes sense though, because you expend a lot of resources when you are in a state of high alert.

I’m the same way, after a panic attack I feel really exhausted and depressed. My panic attacks are more situational though.

But Zoning out is something I experience on a regular basis though whether I’m stressed or not, but that’s mostly because I have ADD. Sometimes I’ll just stare at a wall and not think about anything for a minute and suddenly snap out of it. Don’t be scared it’s nothing too serious. Of course it can be a nuisance if you’re trying to concentrate or if you’re in the middle of a conversation but overall I actually learned to enjoy it, it’s not often I can get my mind to shut off for a little bit so it feels nice when it suddenly happens.
