Lately I've been feeling like I am viewing my life in the third person. I feel detached from reality. It feels as though I zoned out and no matter how hard I try I can't focus.

    I understand this, this is called dissociation, I have experienced this and this is a normal symptom of depression. I would try to ground myself little by little in the day, touch things, go outside and touch the grass, name things, and write this is me down. I would look myself in the mirror and say this is me to myself. I hope this helps, I have struggled with dissociation most of my life, and it sucks. Just know that you aren't alone in this, there are plenty of people that are willing to help you, even if it's just random strangers on the internet!
