I explained in another post my theory on DP;

When we manually breathe it disrupts the breathing pattern, it's something we're not meant to be aware of.

Is DP just the same thing but we are "manually living"? I always slip in and out of this manually living state whether I'm thinking about it or not.

Before DP we never ever chronically thought about the meaning of our existence or ever constantly self-reflected.

If you can remember a memory from before you had DP - What did it feel like? It felt ignorantly bliss. We simply never self-reflected like we do constantly on a day to day basis now.

I think what I'm trying to say is we're just too "woke". We've red pilled ourself into existential anxiety and depression.

We're smart people, all of my panic attacks ever, have been triggered by an event that would cause self-reflecting (Ie. Birthday, Christmas or major life changes)

My DP effect is mostly gone because I started to realise the DP was just "me noticing me", but the existential depression is there and it's hard to forget about.

The "manually living" feeling is a symptom called hyperawarness and its a symptom of anxiety, panic attacks and dpdr since dpdr is an anxiety disorder gone a little haywire. Some people are naturally very self reflective but dpdr makes it more amplified and you more aware of it and disturbed by it.
I totally agree when i think of how i was before all this, it was nice to be blissfully ignorant of how complicated and scary your mind can actually become.
The dpdr feelings can cause existential anxiety/angst/depression or vice versa like some cases like mine, the existential thoughts can cause dpdr. But some people may not get as bad existential thoughts as others from what ive seen.
