DP category symptoms are very transient for me, but DR has been persistent for years, and it's an even bigger source of discomfort for me because sometimes it seems like I could be in a dream or something.

Reality appears to be fake or something... disorganised, uncanny, incomprehensible.

"Dreamlike" isn't really the most accurate word for me. It's more like my consciousness has been reduced, like I have a brain disease or a permanent hangover. I'm actually not totally convinced I don't have a brain disease.

Nah I feel ya. I apologise for refraining to this word but this condition definitely makes me feel retarded at times.

This describes my situation pretty well. It's like I'm permanently drunk/hungover, and this causes my surroundings to feel fuzzy. Lights often also feel way brighter than they should.

I can't determine. I suspect lamotrigine might work better for DP category symptoms rather than DR. I'm starting to think my DR is from something separate, like depression or sleep interruptions.

why do you think it is separate?

I think DP is worse for me. Not being able to know what I am feeling and not having a sense of self is extremely disturbing

Dr is worse because I've had a lot of nightmares and had insomnia in the past from it. Also the time it always makes me think I'm confused from how distorted it is with Dr like a time that would be in your subconscious mind and not in reality.
