How long does a DP episode last for you?

I was wonder how long everyone experiences this? I will have minutes and hourse where things just dont look and feel right! I will have days where things seem wrong! It is a matter of severity! Like all day today I have felt like I was in DP reality but in a mild way. A few weeks ago I had about 2 or 3 hrs where I swore I was still dreaming when I got out of bed!! I was convinced something wasnt real and then convinced myself it was and made it past it and then was pretty "normal" the rest of the day!

So I ws wondering how everyone experiences this? Do you have minutes and hours that are intense like me and then whole days that are just sorta fpoggy but not too bad? Do you have whole days where you feel "normal"? How often does it come on? Please share!

Typically I have foggy-headed feelings (especially in the morning and later in the evening), but they are probably remnants of DP: nothing full fledged. I get DP more when I'm traveling or in a new place physically (well, that's probably derealization more than anything). Nonetheless, when the episode hits I can only describe it as up and down for a while (a couple of days) as I go in and out of over-awareness of self, etc. during the stressor period. It's periodic, never consistent.

I believe this periodic "foggy" and "intensee" back and forth is quite common and something most of us feel, some probably more on one side than the other.
