    Ok so the past month or so, I haven't been feeling 'right'. I really don't know what's happening to me.

    Sometimes I'll be at work or outside and suddenly everything seems too bright and surreal. I know how stupid that sounds but it's like I'm watching everything else and I'm not a part of it. Like I'm watching it on a TV screen that's had it's brightness level cranked right up and I feel very detached. This can last between 5 minutes and a few hours. My brain also feels fuzzy when this happens and I struggle to concentrate.

    I've also started sleeping a lot more. I'm not sure if I feel tired exactly but I find myself laying down to go to sleep at 9.30pm most nights, although there are other times where I'll stay awake until midnight to balance it. I get excited and happy at the thought of going to sleep early and sometimes I think it's because of the lack of consciousness for 10/11 hours.

    This is where it gets weird... on Saturday afternoon I finished work and was walking through town and every time I looked at someone, their face was disfigured. Then when I blinked and looked back at them, their faces were normal. It really really freaked me out, and I kinda rushed home and got into bed and closed my eyes.

    It hasn't happened since but I'm worried now. I could cope with the detached feelings and wanting to sleep a lot of the time, but now I'm seeing things that aren't real I just don't know what to do.

    First of all, don't panic. There's obviously something not quite right here, but it may not be a major problem. I would say you should go and see a doctor and describe all this to them. They'll have heard stuff like this before and will almost certainly be able to help. Whatever you do, don't suffer in silence - even if this is just a one-off, you'll worry about it and it may become a much worse problem.
    Best see the doctor and get their professional opinion. They're best qualified to know what this is all about.
