1. You feel disconnected from everything

You might be experiencing depersonalization, or the “persistent feeling of being detached from one’s self”

People with known depersonalization (H/O trauma/substance abuse) have described feeling a strange sort of emotional numbness and emptiness, like they were “watching their life from outside of themselves” or “going through the motions of every day as if on autopilot.”

They don’t feel like themselves anymore, donot get engaged by anything, and constantly struggle with an overwhelming sense of helplessness and inability to take back control of their lives.
