does anybody else not feel real? sometimes I will be doing daily tasks and have to punch myself just to make sure I'm real. I also do things like asking frequent questions I already know just to feel human. I feel like I'm the only one.
any advice on why I feel like this?


Anxiety (Including GAD)

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

    I do the same thing, where everything around me feels real but I feel very fake/out of touch with reality. I've been told it's a symtpom of my BPD which we appear to have in common. It's a really uncomfortable feeling!

    It's part of derealization, the feeling that you're not real. Every person that has BPD goes through it. I always feel like I'm spectating life, and it sucks.

    I get it sometimes, probably because of my bpd. It’s like I’m just imagining everything and I’m not actually living this life. Honestly I have no advice on how to stop feeling like that but you’re definitely not the only one
