This is a pretty normal feeling among sufferers.

My therapist gave me some really good advice because I used to have the same issues.

If you ever feel like you're spacing out, try to focus on something in the room. It can be anything; a lamp, a desk, or a poster. Do something so that it takes your mind off the rumination that people tend to have when they start succumbing to unreality. It'll take practice, but if you continue to try it, you might find methods to snap yourself out of it.

Yeah that's a fairly common symptom of dpdr! You're not alone. I've been reading lots of recovery stories today and that weird off perception of life does go away and it all goes back to normal with time. Just keep going xoxo

And dpdr puts us in autopilot mode which kinda sounds a little bit of maybe why you and reality feels so strange. That's how I thought of it anyway
