Need help understanding....

I've had DP a few times in my life but am self-diagnosed. I was just wondering, and this would help a lot, is DP for you, just feeling unreal with the world, people, and things? Do you feel unreal with yourself and get so scared that you don't know yourself anymore? I personally feel the real me is inside watching another me do things. I hate it, but haven't looked in a mirror for so long because I can't take looking at someone I don't recognize anymore and its scary. I am married and whenever there is a big argument, I feel myself whole again, like I need every bit of me to stand up for myself. I miss that me but leaves quickly after that. I know I can't keep going around fighting with people lol. I was just wondering if anyone could help, I just want to make sure this is DP and not something else that could be worse.

The short answer is yes. What you describe sounds like classic Depersonalisation. But go to a doctor anyway..
