i really think this photo describes what dissociation feels like sometimes {for me anyways}

In time, depersonalized people can make some accommodations to the condition, Janiger says. They know it won’t kill them or make them insane. It isn’t a progressive illness. It may constitute a subtle alteration of perception. It’s more like adjusting to a pair of glasses that makes everything appear upside down. Eventually one may find ways of adapting.

Accordingly, people with DP disorder become masters at maintaining a front, appearing quite normal to friends, family and co-workers. The sense of being an automaton as described in DSM-IV is consistent with going through the familiar routines of a lifetime. You do what you’re expected to, and say what others expect you too, all the while feeling as if you’re acting out of habit, says John, a 32-year-old filmmaker who has had the condition for six years. Your mind is always a million miles away. All natural spontaneity and joy of living is gone. You know something’s wrong, and you’re constantly battling with what it might be, and evaluating how you feel.
