For the recovered ones:

Was your sense of self the last thing to come back?

I notice that all my physical DP symptoms disappear when i stop obsessing, but the loss of my sense of self is the most stubborn symptom.

Thanks :)

Hiii! I may not be much help but my sense of self came back but then the existential thoughts came after that and I hope that's my last and final symptom but my sense of self was definitely one of my last to come back but not the last last haha. It does come back though! And you don't remember what it's like not to have it. Soo strange ????????‍♀

Sense of self is one of my last symptoms when the dp is at a low
Loss of my self is constant I'll be so happy when it comes back one day
I forget what it felt like to have a sense of self

Can't say I'm 100% recovered, I can still kind of feel my existential anxiety kind of "teetering on the edge" throughout the day still, but I think that too will pass. To answer your question, yes, your sense of self is the last thing to return when you are recovering. It was for me.
