Do you ever feel like your body isn’t yours?

Sometimes it feels like my body isn’t mine. Like I don’t know how touchy the “gas” and “breaks” are, can’t stay upright because walking doesn’t totally make sense, etc.

It doesn’t happen a lot, but it has happened.

I’m wondering if it’s part of dissociation related to PTSD (what I was told it was), a leftover from some drug habits (some more recent than others, but assume all the things have been used), or part of psychosis.

It ultimately doesn’t matter much. Maybe I’d just feel better if it was a thing I didn’t do to myself. Or if I knew my current meds can prevent it.

Yes, i think it’s a kind of severe dissociation. Nowadays i only have it slightly, but when i was young i couldn’t relate to my own legs and motions.

It was very frightening, but don’t get scared (you don’t seem to be). Just try to accept it if you can, then it goes away slowly.

But it is an interesting phenomenon.

Yes, I have felt like my body is someone else. Someone whom I didn’t know how to deal with so I internalized him, made him myself and found that, at that point, myself had gone numb.

Man, I feel sorry for whoever has my body. I fell out of shape and need to lose some pounds.
