So, a few days ago I had a vivid dream where my sense of reality was back and I felt every single thing by the campfire, and it kind of like shocked my body. Now whenever I wake up I have anxiety for like 2 or 3 minutes and then I'm kinda happy throughout the day. Are these signs of recovery or am I just in a good mood lately?

Yep, definite signs of recovery :)

 

There's a saying that when will and imagination are in conflict imagination always wins. Further, using force of will can create a sense of deficit. That you're dreaming of being well is good. You can reinforce this with suggestions like, "how does it feel being fully recovered?" For me, asking questions about what it feels like to have no problems works best as direction to the subconscious, and I think it needs it because it's very direct. We maintain states by dwelling on them obsessively, so let's pick a good one.

 

Dream well :)

I still feel really dped but it feels, different I guess? I dont really feel attached to who I used to be and whenever I think back I get sad, will that go away when this goes away or is that completely different?

Update: I woke up this morning feeling frustrated, I guess that's a start!

For sure. You are getting better!
For me, recovery came with a rollercoaster of flashbacks of moments when I was completely dissociated and moments of calm satisfaction. It is still an up and down road, but my down feels always better than the down that was before.
