Question: Zoning out....

 jprice - Fri Jul 02, 2004 9:54 am

Yesterday morning, I woke up with a bad headache. It eventually went away, but I had this uneasy feeling like I had no clue where I was. I was in my own apartment....and I went to bed perfectly fine and sober. I stayed with my boyfriend last night. Everything was fine. He was dropping me home on his way to work this morning and I zoned out again. I've lived here all my life. I have no idea why this is happening. He wants me to go see a family doctor but I think they would think I was insane. How do I begin diagnosing this and who do I go see about it?
