Is it possible to enjoy DP?

I find absolutely none of this enjoyable. Glad your experience seems a little different though, hope that creativity carries through into recovery for you!

I enjoyed DP at first because it allowed me to cope with some highly stressful situations (like interactions with my horrible family), but now that my life is better and I'm still DP'd, I just hate this. I can't find anything good about being DP'd

sometimes I find it so funny that I can feel no embarrassment. I can be very straightforward and say things everyone wants to say but kind of embarrassed about it, and enjoy their faces when they don't know what to do and I know I can't feel a thing. Also I've become much more sarcastic and laid-back toward a lot of things. Has its cons, but yeah kinda hilarious.

I've never enjoyed it. I've had it 24/7 for decades. The only way I am able to be unaffected is just accepting it and live with it.
I've had times with anxiety attacks and grew up feeling inferior even prior to DP. If it comes and goes that's a different story. I've lived with it for decades. How about you? If you're young you may think it's fun.
Meditation does help and there are some new therapies also. It's made it difficult to focus on things and I go in and out of feeling numb toward people. My emotions will sometimes not be able to connect to feeling anything about others. It goes back and forth. Let me know if you've had it chronically.

Now, though, I really just want to know what it's like for normal people. I also have a lot of physical symptOms that I didn't have before which just make my life a living nightmare.
