I was diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder. Its since been taken back but now suggested I have DP. I have incessant nonsensical chatter. Feel emotionally numb. Caffeine makes the chatter worse. Anxiety makes it worse. I dont feel like I'm in a dream or fog or my body isn't real.i have a fear this is schizophrenia but have been told it isn't. I feel like I'm going to go crazy. I wonder where the chatter comes from and what it means. The other day the chatter started and in my head I was talking to someone who wasn't even looking at me. I didn't dissociate but had to snap back to reality. Does this sound like things you guys experience?

"I dont feel like I'm in a dream or fog or my body isn't real.i have a fear this is schizophrenia but have been told it isn't. I feel like I'm going to go crazy."

There is a subgroup within depersonalization who primarily have derealisation but not depersonalization with emotional numbing. You say that you don't derealisation but only emotional numbing and that likely do not qualify you the condition. I can not understand that you are given the diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder with the symptoms you say you have. You are suffering from a anxiety condition and the emotional numbing is likely a result of your brain trying to suppress anxiety, - the cost is all emotions are suppressed. You have have a fear of developing schizophrenia and the mental hypochondritis is normal in many with a anxiety condition and also at the outset at depersonalization. It seems to me that you are suffering from a anxiety condition but the absence of derealisation likely is against that you have depersonalization disorder.

yeah man. my second outset was with mental hypochondria. my first was with bad trip. i wonder if they are two different illnesses. because the first episode was not so severe.
