Holy hell no. Im am the exact opposite. For me, DR is a huge relief from DP. I get DP the most and it scares me the most. I think it must be because im an introvert and usually very connected with my feelings. when i lose tge connection, i feel like ive lost my soul. Its the most distressing thing. When i get the rare DR feeling, its annoying at worst.

DR is worse, I think. But its hard to say because the two are both part of the same disorder.

I have mainly only DR, so I'm not sure. I have kind-of mild DR, 24/7, so I've just got used to it. :/

I think DR freaks me out more, and dp just makes me Sad because I feel like I can't feel love towards my son and family as much as I know I can.
I can't remember the last time a had a overwhelming feeling of love for someone or even happiness..but I used to normally always distant myself from family as a kid so I can cope with it better.

For some people sure. Overall no. Both dp and dr are experienced with different symptoms and different intensities in different people. You can say one is worse then the other

I agree with you. If things seem unreal it kind of matches my unreal feelings. So things seeming unreal is like normal. But not knowing forever how I really feel, what I am, why I say things, who is talking, will I be able to control myself? It sucks man. Cause like with dp we know reality in some sense so like with dr you do too. What's the big deal then with things seeming unreal? When I seem lost and not real is much more scary and hard to deal with for me.

I think whatever you don't have as often would be worse as your not used to it as much as you primary symptom.

Please rephrase the question (INTJ lad speaking here.)

I usually have DR - I think it is because, at heart, I am an arrogant person. as in "I am fine, everything else is screwed up.' But when I have periods of high stress, the DP can kick in.

So, how would you code that?

for me its not derealisation even if i polled that.

 

for me diagnose derealization is miss diagnosis. as i understand, that the humans are so distracted that they live in derealization themself.  they dont see the real world, but illusion in culture and believing on it.

DP is worse... That's a fact, not an opinion. Seems as though people have reached a general consensus that dr is worse..
