does it strip away your original personality totally because everyday for the last 3 years since developing derealization (not dp so much for me) I just feel dulled and flat like your stuck in a vegetated state. I tried variety of antidepressants to no avail and they never really lifted my major depression symptoms and just made the fog even more thicker plus where I would zone out and I could not gather my thoughts together. I also had blood work done from my doctor and he tells me I'm defienct in vitamin B12 which is 314 and d3 which is 28.1 along testosterone at 184 which should be in the 700 or greater range for my age since I'm 35 so that could explain my weak energy and overall low mood he believes so he's ruling out other potential causes like Lyme co-infections of bartonella which I have a feeling could be the source of my sickness as I also have gut issues like ibs, constitpation,and other neurlogical impairments with lack of concentration. Do you think the old me is gone because of the derealization because even articulating and sequencing thoughts are becoming a bigger mental challenge than before the condition came on? This has even caused long term unemployment for me because of my poor health, any thoughts on how your experiences have been with losing self identity?
