I hate all of the symptoms that come with having DP/DR, but one of the symptoms that I hate the most is the memory loss and the concentration issues that come with it. I can barely remember what I did five seconds ago nor can I remember non-traumatic memories that happened two years ago. And when it comes to the concentration issues.. homework just got more harder than it already is. I also really hate the emotional detachment.

I hate the way i see things,kind of like im in a dream or i miss moments in what what i see and it is hard to concentrate on things i see. Also, not feeling myself and forgetting my identity.

I am discouraged often by not being connected with all of my feelings and my surrounding. I fell in love and at the greatest moments I can't connect with her fully.

to me the worst is the loss of emotion, and is for me the main root of while i'm doing wrong, as it unable me to socialize as i lack of understanding of others people emotion too, but i can see that people feel my problem with makes everything worse. although it seems like for much people here it's not the case, the fact that people can sense it is for me the worst part of dp.

i feel as if i'd have my emotion back i could rebuild my ego and i'll be just fine from there.

i also doesn't suffer much from DR as i'm not able to feel.

I can suffer depersonalization, feelings of unreality, I can ignore visual symptoms. But what really impairs my work is brain fog. I can’t study as much as I’d like because I get all lightheaded and I can’t even understand what it is I’m reading. I really hate emotional numbing as well, but fortunately this symptom is episodic and not very impairing.

1. No me , don't know who I am , no connection to the old me before this started.
2. The emotional numbness hate it so much.
3. My past memories feel distant , feel it's not me in my memory hate hate hate .

Everything with dr dp is horrid but these are my worst feelings that I find hard to deal with the most . Like I'm stripped completely of me .

I voted brain fog, just because without it I could at least function independently, though perhaps only minimally.

My biggest fear is eventually being permanently institutionalized because I cannot function.
