You can have symptoms of DP/DR secondary to many organic conditions and psychiatric states like depression, PTSD (dissociative subtype) ect. Dissociation in borderline is known. Depersonalization is a primary condition typically comes very sudden to stress, drugs, panic or depression. Most can say where they were, when it happen. It is a sudden brake in self-experience. There will often also be high level of anxiety, mental hypochondria about going psychotic in the first months to the outset. Because depersonalization as a primary condition is very under diagnosed and to many unknown it might not have been considered. You could also have it to a secondary condition.

So you mean this is the right diagnosis?

No, I said that its difficult to get the right diagnosis as depersonalization is both a symptom secondary to many conditions and a disorder in its own right. Most don´t know about the disorder so they would often not consider it. But, with the disorder there are some patterns most follows when they get the disorder that you don´t see in those with it as secondary symptoms. Nobody can confirm and reject a diagnosis on this forum. Even psychiatrists who have worked with depersonalization would decline diagnosing people they have not meet. You will have a history of your condition, symptoms ect that have to been included into making a diagnosis.
