No sense of self

Going to keep this brief.

I know a detachment from the self is a common symptom of DP. But I kinda feel like I don't even exist anymore. I literally can't tell. I feel like I am just experiencing everything consciously, emotionally, and somatically, but their is no "me" that is experiencing it, its just my brain. Its terrifying. Most people seem to say that DR bothers them more than DP. I definitely disagree, It's easier for me to acclimate to DR then DP. A loss of self is so much more threatening to me then my surroundings looking fuzzy.

Just wondering if anyone can relate to feeling like there is no actual person inside their brain.

a classic and usual symptom of dp. just like you said. and people who recover from dp, recover from that. its the same thing.

i also dont have a sense of self. but i say „shit happens, i dont have a sense of self". and nothing more. and believe me, like this, it will be much easier to cope. dp is not a thinking disorder, but im sure we can influence the severity with our thinking much. positive or negative.

for me the dp part is worse, because it does impact my topical life very much. my relationship, my passion for music and my hobbies like watching football or playing fifa. i cant feel pleasure. and imagine, if this things would be fixed, it would be 70% recovery for me. the dr part is also annoying as fuck. but no life with dr is worse than one life with dr. and whats taking my life is the dp.
