Well tonight I started singing out of the blue at first I felt weird but I basically said screw it and kept singing because the song I was listening to means alot to me.
Soon after I started feeling different more here.more in my own body I was laughing again and could feel the happiness
Then I started getting a weird pressure in my head and somewhat went back into the dpdr.obviously I didn't just cure myself but I was back and just wondered has anyone else gotten this I'm back feeling when singing or in general when doing something they love???

These are the first steps towards recovery. Realize that the happiness and connected feelings are how the world really is, and DPDR is just trying to convince you otherwise.
Doing things you love despite initially not wanting to is a great way to feel more connected, even if it's only temporary.

I've been completely cut from my emotions since everything has happened.lately I've been getting this feeling in my stomach and chest that I so badly just want to scream and cry and actually feel it and I can't.
Do you have any tips on how I can get back to my emotions.Im gonna get back into singing even if it's just in the bedroom or car being that it seems to ground me which I'm very pleased about because I've tried everything to ground myself and to find something that works brought a calmness to me.
Usually I wouldn't want to cry and I've always been the type to shut my emotions down but at this point that's all I want to do and can't.if you have tips on how to feel emotions again out side of just frustration that'd be awesome.

Starting to feel your real emotions again, it's an interesting question and I'm not sure how to answer.
It's not really an active process, they come back by themselves gradually when the anxiety and subsequently the DPDR subsides. Also, having found that singing helps is good, you can use it as a short term help.
Crying will help as well, at least for me it releases some of the negative feelings making space for positive emotions.
The more you worry and search for answers the more difficult the path to recovery is.

I feel very comfortable in knowing I'm okay and it's a normal response. I'm actually gonna get off of this sure I may write occasionally on my progress but I really believe depersonalization is actually going to be a learning experience for me.i've had issues with being my true self my whole life and I'm gonna take time to learn me and how I really am as a person.

I think singing is very therapeutic on many levels, and it sounds like it is on a personal level for you so I hope you'll continue with it. I'm sorry to hear your brother-in-law passed, but if he loved singing he would want you to keep doing it
