No personality and no soul

With dp, did anyone feel this sudden loss of personality? Like, you didn’t know the things you used to say, you felt like you were in your body and experiencing everything for the first time, words felt strange and robotic...this dramatic shift happened to me 10 years ago and I’ve never recovered. It’s like everything’s gone, my habits, mannerisms, how I used to think. It’s like I’m a totally different person. All I have are memories of this person’s life and otherwise I’m wiped clean. My social life is really suffering because I can never think of what to say and I feel like the most boring person ever. There’s just nothing left inside me, nothing individual, nothing that I grew up learning, except things like reading and drawing. That hasn’t changed but my voice has. My voice is gone. The internal monologue that I had before vanished and it was like a new monologue began for the first time, taking its place. 2008 seems like the year I was born, not 1991, when this body was born.

i know exactly what u mean, its my number 1 problem, i was reading this like yeah i totally agree, then u said uve gotten this 10 years ago and still experience this.. makes me sad, ive been like this for 2 and a half years, im giving myself til im 26 to get over this shit or its over man

dont know what to do about it, i can tell u for 1 day had had all those emotions back, but lost it the next, literally it was like my mind was rejecting dp, like i remmebering thinking and telling myself, like mikey remember u have dp? and my mind was like rejecting that and was like moving past it, idk was pretty amazing, felt like my old self that whole day, wish i could go back, dont know how that happend, do anything to feel like that again

but like i said, 10 years is a lot, i was hoping id be 1 of those 6 month cases, but 2 and a half years here i am
