Anyone forgot what things used to be like?

Can't seem to remember how things used to feel like, memories, what it was like to have emotions, how my vision used to be, how my hands used to look etc,how I used to think and sleep even.

Keep having thoughts that this is not DP but some form of ego death due to letting my thoughts run wild and not trying to fight the dp back, essentially giving up trying to fight, trying to get better.

Anyone else?

I'm not sure I've ever had a full emotional palate, however I do look back at my previous life and wonder how I ever was able to do any of it. Sometimes I think I've always felt this way, and then I look back at some old pictures and realize that's definitely not entirely true.
I've had DP/DR issues since I was 13 years old. Over the years I've had it on an off but I find that during my episodes I can't really remember what is normal or having emotions. But I know I've had them based on things I've done throughout my life, like you said with the pictures. Its very weird. Maybe we just can't remember we've had normal emotions while we are "in the zone of derealization/depersonalization" episodes.
