I want to ask this from people that developed derealization without any psychedelics used. Do you get tracers? Also, does anything ever look cartoonish to you? Especially if you walk outside. Not sure if anyone will get what I mean, cartoonish might be a wrong word to use.
My DP and DR were not drug induced and both are chronic. My vision is by far the most disturbing and debilitating symptom. I have tracers, snow/static, shadows that aren't there, flickering or pulsating objects and horrible depth perception. I have always described what I see to a non-DP'er as cartoonlike or plastic. Especially the outdoors, trees, plants, flowers, the sky...it all looks like a prop. I totally understand what you mean by cartoonish.
Not that it will necessarily make you feel better but you are definitely not alone. :?

I am never sure what caused my dp/dr.... tho totally with you, infact I mainly have dr to be honest, which to me is simply the perception of the world. How I see it now is different to when I was born,
and yeh, it's like 2D, cartoonish, people just look fake. it's very frightening I think.
I want it to go away, but I think my brain may have changed for ever (''.)
To be honest the hardest thing I find with things looking so wierd is it making me feel like I can't experience life how I used to! I feel blocked out of reality, I hate this the most.
