Memories of real events feel like dream recall

Its to the point now that when I recall events from earlier in the day or from a different day my brain is not differianting it from dream recall, my real memories feel like dream memories now. And when I wake up from dreaming the "real world" feels no different to me than the dream world. I have constant dream recall during my waking hours and when I do sleep I wake up during rem sleep constantly it seems like, which I think is a big part of the problem. Is any of this normal in dr/dp? Does anyone else have trouble differentiating dream memories and real memories? And/or have excessive dream recall during there waking hours.

Yeah many people think that having dp disrupts the REM sleep state. It's totally normal that your memories feel distant, that's a symptom of dp that many if not all have.

I had a moment where I was sleep deprived and something happened which I didn't really like right before I went to bed and the next day it felt like it didn't even happen to me but to someone else. It was truly bizarre.
