Hi Zabram, yes from what I've read before this is considered a normal symptom that happens to a decent amount of people with dpdr i've seen this mentioned many times. I think its considered more on the de-personalization side rather than the de-realization side. Ive personally had this before too.
That's commonly reported here. I didn't experience alien thoughts but I did have something that was like automatic speech that I didn't identify with. To elaborate, someone would ask me a question and the answer would come out of my mouth seemingly without any thought. My voice sounded foreign like it belonged to another person.
Ive personally had what the poster above said. I also had a similar thing with walking, it felt like my next several footsteps would happen on their own. Like my mind would decide the next three footsteps automatically i watched it happen robotically (except i could intervene and change the direction). It made me worry about free will type stuff too. It went away (im a free will comaptibilist)
