Weirdest thing I've ever felt
Well, tonight has been weird.

I get off of the computer after a long night of gaming and talking on skype, and this happens.

I suddenly felt like I was being drained of something, like my memory.

I felt like I was losing words, but I clearly am not.

I did some memory tests and they were all fine, I remember everything vividly like I always do.

Nothing feels real at the moment, I don't feel like a person, I feel like I am outside of myself, but conscious of what I am doing.

Maybe it was the bad ketchup at lunch today.

The feeling is kind of nice, because I feel like I am on a vacation.

Perhaps it is a lack of sleep.

I think I am suffering from depersonalization, it will probably be over soon.

Anyone know what this could be?

No history of Alzheimer's in my family or any other mental disorder besides anxiety for that matter.

Nope, I've no idea what's happening but I think I've experienced it too.

It's a bit like your mind is working at a different time-rate... everything around you and even your own body seems to moving very slowly or these things are the same but your mind is processing everything much much much faster.

Spooking but enjoyable feeling.

No drugs involved.

Sounds similar to the so-called "OZ factor".

Perhaps a mild temporal lobe seizure? Consider

I think it's more to do with having just performed a strenuous mental exercise.

Have you tried the thing where you stand in a doorway, arms by your sides then press the backs of your hands against the door-frame? Press hard for around 30 secs to a minute.

Then turn your whole body 90 degrees and relax your arms.

You will feel your arms lifting involuntarily.

I think it's the mental equivalent of that.

RE: Weirdest thing I've ever felt
Happened to me when my husband died and lasted for weeks.
I was there and I functioned with efficiency, but I felt like I was walking on air and felt detached from everything.
It also happened to me many years ago after I was in a nasty car accident as passenger. (Awful feeling when for a split second you see it coming but there is nothing you can do...)
I think there are times when your mind takes full charge and puts the body in "suspension", negates the importance of the body for a time.
It's a defense mechanism. The brain feels a need to separate from reality for a time. It happens when you let go of something very stressful.
I'm guessing you got swept up in your game for hours, very intensely. It's like coming down from a "high".
Just my guess, going by my own experiences.
If it happens a lot, if I were you I'd set some break times in my gaming to let my mind return to normal for a bit.... are you playing games that raise your adrenalin?

Its probably lack of sleep, combined with the all of the attention you have probably used in gaming.

When I get it I can look at my reflection and its feels like somebody else looking back, weird.

Weird, I just felt like I have Deja Vu.

As if... I've already had this conversation before.



Curious.

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

Yes, I was playing an FPS for about 2 hours on my computer.

And I was quite competitive while playing also.

It was not the Oz Factor, I didn't hallucinate at all.

And I was most likely not visited by aliens, although that would be cool.
