.... i have lost my idenitity and my whole sense of self..



  Well I thought the same thing a couple years ago when my Dp/dr was very bad and now it is diminished much and I do feel more like myself again so it isn't lost just temporarily blocked to a degree.   The sense of identity should improve as memory improves.

I've had similar.  I think it is part of dissociation.  Probably has to do with the disruption of memory that happens with DP/DR.   I cannot clearly remember the experience of DP/DR while my dissociation is diminished and vice versa.

You know some people actually enjoy constantly analyzing such questions such as professional philosophers.. so then it's not so much about the questions as it is the obsession and related anxiety associated with them.      Once I diminished such obsessions/anxiety those question don't seem as such horrible things; and why should they be? I guess it can be comforting to know things and be sure of things but life would certainly be boring if we knew the answer to every such question wouldn't it?

A few years ago I thought I'd never feel like my 'old self' again.. that it may be gone forever.   That's not true though; much of that sense is back now.   So then it's still there; hasn't been lost; there's just a disconnection from it..
