I was wondering if it was possible to gain depression from having depersonilzation.. Lately I have been feeling really down for some reason. I don't know if it's just me being annoyed by the depersonilzation or if I'm becoming depressed

I think that depression is always considered a physical thing which doctors consider a discrete illness, but I think if you are feeling down for a prolonged period of time, the label is irrelevant.

Therefore I would say that yes you can become really down from the symptoms of depersonalization. Anxiety and depression usually go together pretty consistently.

I think a doctor would consider me "depressed" as well. Regardless, whether you have this "thing" called depression is irrelevant. What's important is doing the things you can to feel better.
Absolutely, DP can take away some of the things you enjoy the most in life, resulting in prolonged depression or a sense of feeling down in general. It's highly common, and with anxiety, depression is never far behind.
