The Zombie State

DPers often say they feel like a zombie. I too use this word to describe how I feel at times. I am wondering if you guys can describe to me what feeling like a zombie feels like? Just wondering if it's the same type of feeling. Today I was without the zombie feeling for a few hours and then it rather suddenly came over me with no obvious trigger. I hadn't felt it in a while so I really wasn't expecting it. I'm not going to describe how it feels for me because I want to see what you guys come up with first.

The zombie state for me is what is commonly described as being on "autopilot" mixed with the other common description of feeling as if I am intoxicated. I feel as if when I walk there is a haze that surrounds me. Not a literal one but a mental fog that clouds my perceptions of reality. I have a more difficult time with cognitive tasks like remembering things, reasoning, or figuring out complex problems.

Life is something that I have been thrust into but I'm not actually actively living. Just existing. Its a lack of clarity and an overall dullness that seems to me most like the zombie state. Everything is confusing and nothing is clear. Because of this I mostly sleepwalk and go through the motions instead of taking an active role in day to day life.
