I get this too. When we have DP, we can't fully perceive life around us. A lot of stuff gets filtered out by the brain as a defense, and as a result we see things, including people, very differently. When the perception of other humans gets partially blocked, it can seem like they are empty bodies, or that they are just a series of connected bones and organs with some skin covering. They barely seem human. Its almost like you are seeing them on a different level of observation. Sounds crazy I know, but it is all part of this illness. I think this is why it is hard for us to fully grasp the entire picture of the human being when we are in these DP states of mind. It does go away though, so hang in there.
